Birthday Meme

 I am quite a nosey person and love finding out things about people. Facts about their family, life, decisions they have/haven't made, jobs and so on.
When I saw that Kate from The Five F's had come up with a fab new meme about birthdays I instantly wanted to join in.
Emma from A Matter Of Choice kindly tagged me so I can play along.

A challenge has been set by Kate; "I'm going to set up a linky and attempt to get at least one post for all 366 days of the year. If you add your post to it, please try to mention the date of your birthday in the link title if you can. That way, I can check through the list quickly to check how we're doing. It won't matter if we get more than one post for the same date, the aim will be at least one post for each day on the calendar."

When is your birthday? *September 11th.

Pick three people who share your birthday and share what you know about them.
*(Unfamous: my twin brother)
*Moby: Super talented musician. Bald head.
*Johnny Vegas: Likes drinking tea with a monkey.
*Ludacris: Super cool rapper. Actor. His "outfit's ridiculous", and he's "in the club lookin' so conspicuous".

Is anyone listed as being born on the same day as you (ie the same year)? If so, what do you know about them?
*1985 – Robert Acquafresca, Italian footballer
*1985 – Shaun Livingston, American basketball player
*1985 – Zack Stortini, Canadian ice hockey player.

Never heard of any of them.

List three people who died on your birthday and tell us what you know about them.
*Casualties from the Twin Towers attacks.
*John Ritter. Played the father in one of my favourite films as a child. Problem Child. I didn't realise he's died so I'm really sad about this, especially as he was so young (54)
*2009 – Gertrude Baines, American supercentenarian (b. 1894) Anyone who lives past 100 is pretty amazing.

List three notable events that took place on your birthday.
*America Terrorist Attacks. Exactly 60 years previous to this.....
*Ground is broken for the construction of The Pentagon (1941).
*Russia tests the largest conventional weapon ever, the Father of all bombs.

Tell us about a holiday that falls on your birthday.
*It's Patriot Day in the US.
