What's So Special About July 9th?

(A conspiratorial Guest Post from Tammi of Tammi's World, with help from Harvey of Bad Example)

Kind of a big day throughout history.

1) July 9, 1810 - Napoleon officially makes Holland part of his empire. Greedy French bastard. But, you do gotta admit, he was probably the last Frenchman with balls.

2) July 9, 1850 - Millard Fillmore becomes the 13th President of the United States. And we have HIM to thank for California. Surfs Up, Dude.

3) July 9, 1967 - Chicago White Sox lose a double header to Minnesota. Hmmm - maybe THAT'S why T1G's such a big Sox fan. You know, that whole underdog thing... and it did take forever for them to actually WIN a World Series.

Famous Births

* July 9, 1819 - Elias Howe, inventor of the sewing machine.

* July 9, 1932 - Donald Rumsfeld, inventor of Kung Fu.

* July 9, 1952 - John Tesh inventor of the factoid, and one of T1G's favorite musicians.

AND... drum roll please...

* July 9, 1967 - That 1 Guy, inventor of Drunken Wisdom!

In honor of this very special day in history - all bloggers should get together to offer suggestions on how T1G can celebrate his 39th birthday. If you have your own blog, feel free to post your suggestions there, then send a trackback to this post and/or leave a permalink in the comments.

Check out the trackbacks & links, but be aware that they're probably not all "safe for work".

Happy Birthday T1G! Enjoy!!!!

Mr. Debonair suggests that, on your birthday, you might consider consuming 750 ml of Cruzan Rum. Then go take a shit on Yabu's windshield. That would be some Bad, Bad Juju indeed!

Fine time to find out that the computer at home was down!! Happy Birthday a day late!

Posted by: Raging Mom at July 10, 2006 04:56 AM

O.K. So I'm a day late... but it's still the 9th to me, and that's gotta count for something. Plus + I'm having a brew for you at 8 in the morning - now that's dedication.

Happy Birthday!

Posted by: Tuck at July 10, 2006 06:13 AM

A tad late but Happy Birthday! I think b-days should be celebrated for a week so I'm not really late.
