Birthday buddies

It was my birthday earlier this week (35…again) and I noticed, thanks to Twitter, that I shared my birthday with a few famous people.

Given the fact that there are only 365 days in a year, it’s not surprising to discover that you share your birth date with someone in the public eye or historically famous.

Through I was quite pleased with some of the names that my rapid online research revealed:

  • Alan Rickman
  • Ellen Page
  • Tolstoy
  • Nina Simone!

I was enjoying this research on my way back from a business trip to Barcelona – not how I’d ideally spend my birthday, even at my age – when another name popped upon the screen of my iPhone: Robert Mugabe.Oh.

So yeah. You can’t control who you share a birthday with. But there’s no need for me to ever mention it again, right?

You can have a look at who else shares my birth date here.

  3. Anytime I see Rickman’s name, I have a twinge. What a talent. Hope you got my handmade ridiculous card. It keeps me off the streets, you know.
