Go to Wikipedia (the repository of all that is good and true). In the search box, type your birth month and day (but not year). List three events that happened on your birthday. List two important birthdays and one interesting death. Post this in your journal.
April 14 is the 104th day of the year in the Gregorian calendar (105th in leap years). There are 261 days remaining.
Because I want to, I am cheating and putting more than three events:

1965 - In Cold Blood killers Richard Hickock and Perry Smith, convicted of murdering four members of the Herbert Clutter family of Holcomb, Kansas, are executed by hanging at the Kansas State Penitentiary For Men in Lansing, Kansas.

I'm such a meme cheater. :P
It seems very likely that I'll be going to the Astros game Friday night versus the Nationals. I can't wait! I haven't been to a baseball game since....well, last season.
In other news, it seems that I will be traveling to Phoenix in late April/early May to see ryogrande. I still need to finalize my travel plans, but I will indeed be going. ♥
Crys will be interested to find that I've been having some vivid dreams lately including, but not limited to, sexy tattooed twins (and maybe a few appearances by one Zacky Vengeance). These dreams occasionally feature me, but usually only in a voyeuristic stance. Very enjoyable indeed.
Work is slowing down. THANK GOD. I have national competition during the last week of April, and then work will be completely dead until sometime in early August. Yay for me.
Therefore, I plan to attend many concerts, travel to see my LJ friends (if they'll have me), and head out to Lumos in Vegas. What a summer, indeed.
Share something with me. Damn, I'll be 29 next week. I feel like I need a lifeline. Or some Madden twins slash. Or Zacky/Matt slash. Or a combination of any of the previous. I am seriously not that picky.
Kaci, I could seriously go for some Seth/Ryan right about now. I think I just might be hooked.
Is anyone detecting a slashy theme here?
Damn, if y'all had an inkling about how much I love you.
