Happy Birthday To Me!

October 18th.
Moby Dick was first published, Bob Beamon set an Olympic long jump record that stood for 23 years, the U.S. took possession of Alaska from Russia, Thomas Edison died, the shuttle Atlantis took off to deploy the Galileo space probe, the Jimi Hendrix Experience played its debut concert in Paris, East German leader Erich Honecker resigns, Jenson Button becomes world Formula 1 champion, Texas Instruments announces the worlds first transistor radio and in 1970 yours truly was born.

Yes, it's my 39th birthday today. An age that sounds old yet I still feel like a 20-something, in mind if not in body.

Other people born today include:
Chuck Berry
George C. Scott
Lee Harvey Oswald
Martina Navratilova
Tommy "Hitman" Hearns
Jean-Claude Van Damage
Michael Stich
Evelyn Waugh
Zac Efron
Freida Pinto

...although I must admit that I don't know who the last two are. Thank you Wikipedia.

Who are you trying to kid, you can't be 39 every year. That's the last few you've tried that one on.

Happy Birthday

Sid said...

Hey. Happy birthday. Sadly I do know who Zac Efron is. High School Musical ...

Inchy said...

Jimmy - Thanks mate.

Sid - It would appear that I'm the only person on Spaceship Earth who wasn't aware of the phenomena that is Zac Efron. I have now been educated.

Jaggy - Tit.

Many happy returns, sir. May you continue to feel younger than you are. ;-)

Inchy said...

Why thank you, Sir Steven of Warwickshire. It is a constant struggle, but my resolve has not yet wavered.

Many happy (if really belated) returns! Sorry... been laying low for a while. Churro the noo.

Inchy said...

Mr C, glad you could join us!
I've saved you a little bit of cake, although it's now developed its own ecosystem and is walking to yours as we speak.
