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: Two amazing science achievements today! In 1950, up at UC Berkeley, scientists announce the creation of element 98 “Californium“, naming it after my home state. And eight years later in 1958, the United States launched Vanguard 1, the first solar-powered satellite!
Celebrity Birthdays: Today is Gary Sinise‘s birthday, as well as Rob Lowe‘s birthday. Forest Gump is not one of my favourite movies, as my friends like to remind me, and that is partly due to Sinise’s performance; he was so good, his character actually scared me as a kid. Of course, now I watch CSI: NY and am constantly reminded by the fact that this man is extremely talented at his job. Rob Lowe recently joined one of my favourite TV shows, Parks and Recreation. He is so funny and great on the show! I’m glad they made him a season regular. And just a small mention to Kurt Russell, who is also celebrating his birthday today! I don’t really know much about Russell’s work, except for, wait for it, the movie Stargate. Which started the Stargate franchise, which is the center of my world on most days.
What’s happening today?: Today is Saint Patrick’s Day! Hope you’re wearing green and drinking green beer tonight! Or, if you’re not drinking, pinching those who aren’t wearing green!
As usual, if you know of any other exciting things happening today, feel free to leave them in the comments! Thanks for playing!
