wiki b-day meme

I stole this from mwalton:

Type your birthday minus the year into the search bar at wikipedia.org . Post 3 events, two births and one death that happened on that day.


1558 - Elizabethan era begins: Queen Mary I of England dies and is succeeded by her half-sister Elizabeth I of England.

1800 - The United States Capitol building in Washington, DC holds its first session of the U.S. Congress.

1950 - Tenzin Gyatso, the 14th Dalai Lama, was enthroned as Tibet's head of state at the age of fifteen.


1925 - Rock Hudson, American actor (d. 1985)

1944 - Danny DeVito, American actor


1558 - Queen Mary I of England (b. 1516)

Christy Turlington, Marilyn Manson (interesting man), Jennifer Aniston (Friends is in my top 10 favorite series) , Renee Zellweger (loved her in Bridget 1 and Jerry McGuire), Cate Blanchette (my current favorite actress that I love for her versatility), Jennifer Lopez, Steffi Graf, Ed Norton (v. talented), Mathew Perry (Friends again), Christian Slater, Jack Black (my daughter loves School of Rock), Dweezil Zappa, Catherine Zeta-Jones (can't believe she married such an old guy!), Gwen Stefani (wish I had her body, loved No Doubt), Trey Parker (of South Park fame), Matthew McConaughey(thought he was cute for a while a few years back), Julie Delpy (in some French films I love),
