A Not-So-Famous Birthday

Lady Gaga isn't the only one having a birthday today. I want to thank my mother for bringing me into this world and also thanks to my father who thought it was a good idea nine months earlier. 

I've never had confirmation on what he thought of his bright idea after I made my debut. According to my sources, I was a great deal of trouble in my youth and conformity was never in my stars. But it's been a grand life so far and I have a sneaking suspicion the best is yet to come.

Today's birthday will feature an appearance from my often-absent husband who traveled 300 miles after a 12-hour work day just to sleep with me last night. Now that's love!

Here's a site that tells you who else was born on your birthday. Click on the month (on the upper left side of the page) and scroll down to your day.

Who did you get?

Holy crap! Lady Gaga is 25. I've got jeans older than that.

What a nice thing your husband did : )

I share my birthday with Avril Lavigne, Lil Wayne(26 & 28, ditto with the jeans thing), Shaun Cassidy, Meatloaf, and Gwyneth Paltrow, among others. Actress Sofia Milos and I are the exact same age, but she looks waaaaaay better than I do : P

Happy happy! Have a fab day!

Angelina Rain said...

Happy B-Day, Maria! Happy, happy, happy birthday!!!!

Thanks for the link to that site. I share a birthday with Queen Elizabeth and Barack Obama. I guess, according to the stars, I’m a born ruler, lol.

I have a birthday gift for you on facebook.

Have a wonderful Birthday! Of course you were hard to deal with as a teen-- look at the stuff you write now, LOL.

I hope your day is wonderful!

Linda Leszczuk said...

Hmmm. I said on Facebook, in an e-mail, in a card, and on my blog so I guess the only thing left is to say it here.

Happy Birthday, Maria!

Hope you're having a good one.

Melissa: Oh my gosh! Good company.

Kaye: Have you been talking to my mother? :grin:

Linda: You've been making me feel totally loved everywhere I go.

Sondrae: There will be soft shelled crabs and lobster salad tonight. With a chocolate cake chaser.

jackie b central texas said...

Happy Birthday Maria, you and Lady Gaga who would have thought! LOL

I hope Greg got some "sleep"! :-)

I got Anderson Cooper, Suzi Quatro, Colleen Dewhurst, Tony Curtis and Jefferson Davis born on my June 3rd birthday of course not the same year though... They were the only 5 people had heard of as there were actually 13 folks born on the date altogether...

Sandra Ulbrich Almazan said...

Happy Birthday, Maria!

Stacy said...

Hmmm... so I share my birthday with Roseanne, Michael Dukakis and Adam Ant. We're a motley assortment. Could have been worse though, I was afraid it would say Charlie Sheen. I love your comment about having jeans older than Lady Gaga. My mother-in-law used to always say that she was "older than dirt" and I'm beginning to know how she felt!

Happy Birthday Maria! I hope it is memorable in only good ways! :)

Maria Zannini said...

Wow! You're kindness overwhelms me.

Angela: Thank you!

Barbara: LOL. That is pretty funny though.

Suzanne: Hi sweetie! And thank you. Just finished a fantastic dinner and relaxing before chocolate cake. :)

Mike: My other favorite Brit! Thanks, Mike.

Sherri: I get singing. Woo hoo! You also share a birthday with my friend Maya Reynolds and my brother. I got your number now. LOL.

Jackie: I was pretty sure you were younger than Jefferson Davis--and Tony Curtis. LOL. But good company.

Sandra: Thanks, hon!

Stacy: That is a motley crew. And you REALLY dodged a bullet not being born on the same day as Sheen.

Thanks, everyone!

Belated birthday wishes! Hope you had a wonderful day, with a Chippendale dancer popping out of a cake, lol.
When I was little, I loved sharing my birthday with Abe Lincoln because it meant I had off from school!

Cate Masters said...

Grr, Blogger must've eaten my earlier comment.
Sorry if this is a repeat...
Happy belated birthday! Hope it was a wonderful one, with a Chippendale dancer popping out of your cake, lol
I used to love sharing a birthday with Abe Lincoln when I was little because it meant I had off from school (till they passed the Monday holiday bill, at least)

Abigail Sharpe said...

Happy late birthday, Maria!

I share a birthday with Thomas Jefferson and Rick Schroeder. Good company! *grin*

Maria Zannini said...

Cate: Your comment was stuck in moderation. After two days, it's automatic thanks to those skanky spammers. Thank you for trying again! And I can well imagine it was a blow not to get the day off for yours and Lincoln's birthday.

Abigail: Wow. Thomas Jefferson. That is good company.
