*be vewwy, vewwy quiet ...

I'm wwiting a book* Yup. Broke down and am doing it. We'll see how it goes. Will probably go a lot faster now that my Game Cube upndied on me. POS. No more Sims for me.

And on a totally unrelated note: I don't generally do meme's just ... 'cuz. But I found this one to be entertaining and educational (to me) and I see that some of you do these, so partake and enjoy. Or else. ;o)

Meme instructions:

1) Go to Wikipedia
2) In the search box, type your birth month and day but not the year.
3) List three events that happened on your birthday
4) List two important birthdays and one death
5) One holiday or observance (if any)

My Birthday: January 12

Events:
1) Rocky Mountain National Park formed (1915)
2) "Batman" the series debuted on tv (1966)
3) Led Zeppelin released their 1st album (1969)

Birthdays:
1) Jack London - author (1876)
2) Joe Frazier - boxer (1944)
3) Honorable mention: Rob Zombie - singer (1965) and Oliver Platt - actor (1960)

Death:
1) Agatha Christie - author (1976)
2) Honorable mention: Hiram Walker - distiller (1899) and Maurice Gibb - singer (2003)

Holiday/Observance:
Tanzania - Zanzibar Revolution Day

I picked things and/or people that I have/had a personal interest in for whatever reason. Well, except the holiday thing.

Congratulations on taking such a big step!

I did this a looong time ago. Who knows, this meme mighta been my idea! (but somehow I doubt it)

If I recall correctly, one of the things that happened on my birthday was the first STD clinic opening in the US or something like that.

Yeah, I know. Impressive, right?

Anyway, Good Luck on your book and I'd be happy to preview it for you. because I'm sweet like that.

Are you participating in NaBloPoMo?

So, what's with the *asterisk? You're wwiting unless...?

TrixieTaxi said...

Meat: Thanks. :-*

Contrary: NaBloPoMo ... nope. I tell stories, I don't write.

Hilly: If *I* get published you get the first autographed copy.

Jessie: If I remember correctly it's all *your* fault I'm writing this to begin with ... I think it was your idea. If it works out I'll certainly be thanking you. If not ... heh

Rick: I'm whispering. Get it?! ;o)

Good luck with your book. I so love your blog. My company announced another round of job cuts - 20% this time. My job was spared (yeah!), but I got to thinking, if I lost my job, maybe I could drive a cab. hmmm, but I live outside philadelphia. A female cabby in philly at night, 'fraid my stories would be too terrifying to blog about. Anyway, I love you, kiddo! can't start my day without see what happened in your night. ~Kimberly
