31 Candles

Today is my birthday and so I am taking the night off from blogging. I ask that you send me something entertaining or a favorite link. That would be lovely.

Yahoo sent me this.

On this date:
In 1821, the first native-born American saint, Elizabeth Ann Seton, died in Emmitsburg, Md.
In 1896, Utah was admitted as the 45th state.
In 1904, the Supreme Court ruled that Puerto Ricans were not aliens and could enter the United States freely; however, the court stopped short of declaring them U.S. citizens.
In 1948, Britain granted independence to Burma.
In 1951, during the Korean conflict, North Korean and Communist Chinese forces captured the city of Seoul.
In 1960, French author Albert Camus died in an automobile accident at age 46.
In 1965, poet T.S. Eliot died in London at age 76.
In 1974, President Nixon refused to hand over tape recordings and documents subpoenaed by the Senate Watergate Committee.
In 1987, 16 people were killed when an Amtrak train bound from Washington to Boston collided with Conrail engines approaching from a side track in Chase, Md.
In 1990, Charles Stuart, who'd claimed to have been wounded and his wife shot dead by a robber, leapt to his death off a Boston Harbor bridge after he himself became a suspect.
Ten years ago: The 104th Congress convened, the first entirely under Republican control since the Eisenhower era; Newt Gingrich was elected Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives.
Five years ago: Former presidential rival Elizabeth Dole (news - web sites) endorsed fellow Republican George W. Bush. Israel and the Palestinians reached agreement on an Israeli troop pullback from 5 percent of the West Bank.
One year ago: In Iowa, seven of the nine Democratic presidential hopefuls participated in a feisty, first debate of the election year. Afghans approved a new constitution. Georgians overwhelmingly elected Mikhail Saakashvili president, two months after he'd led protests that forced Eduard Shevardnadze to step down.

Happy Birthday, champy.

Diana Gallagher said...

Kranki old old old.

Older than mem anyway but not by much!)

Happy Day, Kranki!

Happy Happy Kranki.

Minty Twat said...

Apologies for my tardiness dear Kranki (I am away on holidays). Happy happy birthday for the 4th (which is also my father's birthday).

Jess said...

Is this like a reverse of Star Wars?

(adopts heavy breathing, James Earl Jones style)

"Kranki.... (inhale, exhale)

You are my father... (inhale, exhale)"

Does this make Ms Fits Leia?

Minty Twat said...

If I remember the film correctly, that would make Ms Fits my sister. This seems unlikely (and would also put a dent in my subtle seduction plans).

kranki said...

Thanks kids! Grandpa Krankiboy will try to remember to give you each a crumpled dollar of love from my musky old wallet on your birthday.

Minty: I think if Fits was your sister it could only improve your seduction plans. I'm not really sure what that means. But I'm standing behind myself out of loyalty.

Happy fucking birthday.

Arms length affection is so much cleaner.

See you soon?

You've Got What I Need... said...

Fingerbanging escapades indeed you bad, bad man. Happy Birthday Kranki. You are a lovely blight upon the face of propriety, so keep it coming in all possible ways and with all possible means.

Pricey said...

Happy Birthday Krankster, hope all those candles didn't present too much of a challenge...


Miss Know It All said...

Happy Birthday Kranki!

Buck Fudd said...

A late Happy Birthday, Kranki one. You're 31?! Shit, another whipper snapper. I guess it says soemthing about my own immaturity that all these bloggers I like are around a decade younger than me.

I did a little google stalking, Kranki. You've chosen teaching over a glamorous career putting things in the mouths of Christina Applegate and the Olsen twins?! Um...actually: good move.

Dear Mr. Kranki,
Happy Birthday and merry everyone.
