Berry's Birthday, My UnBirthday... A Meme for Monday!

SO first off... HAPPY BIRTHDAY for the 22nd Berry! I hope that you had a fab day with lots of laughter and surprises and all those good things that make you feel like a princess on your special day! One thing about Miss Berry - who I will admit I don't know personally, but can say I've learnt a little about from reading her blog - is that she seems very determined not to let her followers down hehe... Even on her special day, she takes some time out to remember us, and come up with a Meme for the week... It's just a shame that this one puts me on edge a little - not a lot just a little LOL...
The reason that I am a little on edge with this week's meme is that things are twofold... Berry has asked us some very simple questions about our RL birthdays - that doesn't bother me at all I am like an open book really lol - what worries me is that she has asked us to do a pile up for her birthday picture either as a Meme within the meme or as just something pretty... Now I am OK when it comes to working on photos of me for myself, you don't have to worry about what other people will think so long as I like it, but when it is someone you don't know and yet admire from afar... Well that's just scary...
I hold my breath and dive in on this one with my eyes screwed shut!
There you have it... My attempt at piling Berry up! I hate piling other people as I am always worried that it will end up with them being unhappy about it, and me being turned into a social pariah LOL... I know that won't happen as Berry is far too nice, but it still feels a little daunting to me, putting myself out there like this LOL... If you want to try an play with Berry's pixels, then the pictures are available to grab from her Flickr Stream... For now though I will let you think of the Jaws theme tune as you all scream "NOOOOO CHOCOLATE STRAWBERRIES LOOK BEHIND YOU, RUN FOR YOUR LIVES!!!"
Now onto the questions, which are slightly less gruelling LOL...
When is your birthday? – March 19th
Pick one person who shares your birthday and share what you know about them.Glenn Close, and although I don't know much about her, I can tell you that she makes a mean Cruella Di Vill LOL... I loved her in the role in the live-action 101 Dalmations movie, and according to Wikipedia she has earned three Tonys, an Obie, three Emmys, two Golden Globes, and a Screen Actors Guild Award.
List one notable event that took place on your birthday. – Well it seems that there are lots of war related things, and lots of sporting things, but I wanted to find something that was less depressing than war and more interesting to me than sport... SO... It turns out that the Sydney Harbour Bridge was opened on March 19th 1932, and in 2008 the GRB 080319B or a gamma ray burst was detected by the Swift Satellite setting a record for the furthest object that could be seen with the naked eye!
Tell us about a holiday that falls on your birthday. – There are a few religious days that fall on my birthday, but as I am not religious I want to leave those well alone. I did however find a bizarre and kind of obscure day... National Poultry Day! I think that it's an American event, but to me that just seems really funny. Most specifically focused on chickens apparently, I have three noisy cluckers in RL so I might have to start showing them a little more appreciation on my Birthday too lol... Though I have a funny feeling the day is more about eating chicken, rather than cuddling it LOL!


  1. Glenn Close also starred in one of my favourite chick-flick movies of alll time- Maxie. If you haven't watched it, you need to!! <3

  2. awwwww, but you did a great job with the pile up. I love it so much, it suits me perfectly and now I'm totally craving chocolate covered strawberries. :D
