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!
In The Before Times: Way back in 1894, the first playoff game for the Stanley Cup starts! I live near San José, home to the San Jose Sharks, and while we’ve never played for the Cup, a bunch of my friends are huge fans of the game. And my brother used to play hockey, so we’ve been to a hockey game back in the day! (Around when we were 10/12 years old, I think.)
Celebrity Birthdays: Today is the day that Reese Witherspoon, William Shatner, and James Patterson celebrate a birthday! Witherspoon is a very popular actress, and I especially loved her in Walk The Line, and her voice work in Monsters VS Aliens. She’s also absolutely gorgeous, and going to be in a movie with Tom Hardy and Chris Pine – I love this. Shatner, if for some reason, you don’t know played Captain Kirk in Star Trek, The Original Series. I’ve only seen some episodes from TOS, but I loved what I saw! (Also, one of his co-stars will be on here another day, but I won’t say who!) And lastly, Patterson is an author of many mystery books, including the Alex Cross series (of which I was a fan) and and the Women’s Murder Club series, which was so popular, it was made into a (short-lived) TV series, on which one of the Stargate Atlantis actors guest starred! (Yes, it all comes back to SGA, I’m sorry.)
What’s happening today?: Today is International World Day for Water. While drinking from your clean, filtered water, remember, there are still millions of people without daily access to clean water.
DVDs and Movies: The Tourist, How Do You Know (with birthday girl Reese Witherspoon!), and Skyline come out on DVD today! And yes, I actually do want to watch these movies. The Tourist is about a man (Johnny Depp) who meets a woman (Angelina Jolie) and Depp gets mistaken for Jolie’s fugitive lover. How Do You Know is about a woman (Witherspoon) who has to choose between an old friend (Paul Rudd) and her current boyfriend (Owen Wilson). I’d choose Paul Rudd myself, but maybe that’s just me… It just sounds like a cute romantic comedy, and I’m a sucker for those. Skyline is a sci-fi action movie starring Eric Balfour and Donald Faison. Yes, I am just that easy.
As usual, if you know of any other exciting things happening today, feel free to leave them in the comments! Thanks for playing!
