Doing the tagged dance

Yeah yeah...I'm supposed to be unpacking boxes. Or showering so we can go to Target and then get some lunch.

But Alice over at I Was Born2cree8 tagged me for a Wikipedia meme. The idea is to go to Wikipedia, type in my birthdate of April 11, and report the following:

3 events that happened on that day in history:
1905 Albert Einstein reveals Theory of Relativity
1921 First sports broadcast on the radio
1961 Trial of Adolph Eichmann begins

2 important birthdays
1755 James Parkinson, English physician (died 1824)
1932 Joel Grey, American singer and actor

1 death
2007 Kurt Vonnegut, American author (born 1922)

I'm supposed to tag 5 others, but I always break the rules on this part. You may play if you choose and consider yourself tagged.

OK, now I really have to go shower so we can get our errands done. I guess the order will be switched - lunch and then Target shopping for necessaries.

Later babies!
