March Is Awesome 2011 #2

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 2nd

On This Day: In 1983, compact discs were finally released, for the first time, internationally. And thus began the torrid love affair with humans and CDs until MP3s were invented. I still like buying CDs; I love cover art! I can’t help it.

Celebrity Birthdays: Today is Jon Bon Jovi’s birthday! I think we should all sing “Livin’ on a Prayer” to celebrate. (Well, you guys can sing your favourite Bon Jovi song, but this one’s mine!)

What’s happening today?: March 2nd is Texas Independence Day – a day when settlers in Texas officially broke off from Mexico and became the state of Texas. This is an official holiday in Texas! I wonder if people get the day off…?

Other: The iPad 2 was announced today, and will be available for purchase on March 11th!

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

Welcome to the First Annual March Is Awesome event, here at my humble abode. 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 1st

Today, in history: Yahoo! was incorporated in 1995. I don’t know about you guys, but Yahoo! was such a big deal to me when I was growing up. I still sing the jingle every now and then!

Celebrity Birthdays: The lovely George Eads from CSI turns 44 today which is impossible, because he does not look 44. Nick (the character he plays) was my favourite character for a very long time.

What’s happening today?: March 1st is St. David’s Day, a Welsh holiday, and this is important, because one of my favourite characters, Ianto Jones (from Torchwood), is Welsh. Yes. You read that right.

DVDs and Movies: Burlesque, Love and Other Drugs, and 127 Hours comes out on DVD today – I’ve seen Burlesque, and I loved it! I also really want to see Love and Other Drugs – I love Jake Gyllenhaal and Anne Hathaway.

Other: Today is Ron Weasley’s birthday, my favourite Weasley (and character in the Harry-Potter-era of the series). In video game news, Vagrant Story by Square Enix was remade and released on PSP today.

And that’s all! If you know of any other exciting things happening today, feel free to leave them in the comments! Thanks for playing!
