March Is Awesome 2011 #23

MIA '11

This is the First Annual March Is Awesome event! The amount to which I love my very own month of March is absurd; my birthday, my brother’s birthday, many of my friends’ birthdays, the beginning of spring, and much, much more! Will you join me in my celebration of March? Alright!

March 23rd

In The Before Times: On this day in 1775, just before the American Revolution (which starts roughly a month later), Patrick Henry gave his famous “Give me liberty, or give me death!” speech in Richmond, Virginia.

Celebrity Birthdays: Michelle Monaghan and Steven Strait both share a birthday today! Monaghan is an amazing and beautiful actress, who has been in the award winning Gone Baby Gone, and won an award for Trucker. She was also in two movies with the lovely Robert Downey Junior, and she’s in the upcoming Source Code. Strait is an actor and singer; as a teenager, I had a huge crush on him in Sky High, and currently love listening to him.

What’s happening today?: Today is International World Meteorological Day, which kind of suits it, because the weather over here is being so weird lately. Tornadoes, mud slides, water spouts, hail. If this is a heads up that the world is ending in a year and a half, it’s not a very nice one.

As usual, if you know of any other exciting things happening today, feel free to leave them in the comments! Thanks for playing!
