Getting Wiki wid it.

Okay, here's another PreppyGirl Blog thingy. Here goes:

1. Go to Wikipedia.
2. In the Search box, type your birth month and day (but not year).
3. List three events that happened on your birthday.
4. List two important birthdays and one interesting death.
5. One holiday or observance (if any).
6. Tag 5 more people - if you feel like it (but, I didn't).
