On My Birthday

The lovely Dia from Diary of a Lagos Mum has tagged me in this birthday related meme (created by Kate at The Five Fs). All you have to do is give a whole load of facts based on the day you were born. This is where Wikipedia comes in handy!

Here Goes,…

When is your birthday? 21st August

Pick three people who share your birthday and share what you know about them.

Kim Cattrall – Samantha in Sex and the City. One of my favourite shows and a woman with an amazin figure! And guts!

Usain Bolt – Jamaican Sprinter and champion. Sharing birthdays unfortunately doesn’t correlate with ability to run fast

Princess Margaret – Queen Elizabeths younger sister

Is anyone listed as being born on the same day (and year) as you? What do you know about them? Yep – Kelis Roger-Jones known mostly just as Kelis. American Singer famous for songs like Milkshake and being married to Nas. I thought she was older than me.

List three people who died on your birthday and share what you know about them.

1940 – Leon Trotsky, a Marxist revolutionary, was attacked with an ice axe by an undercover agent working for the police. He was taken to hospital but died the next day.
