Birthday Meme

I stole this from one of my favorite bloggers, Mary The Teach, over at Work of the Poet. She got it from the inventor, Jamie of Duward Discussion. If you need a post idea for NaBloPoMo, or any thing else, jump right in.

According to the Birthday Calculator this is what happened on my birthday:
