Hello Everybody,
Yesterday was my birthday and I find it only appropriate to blog about it. I started my day out basking in the sun, contemplating life and relating it to the life of many of the interesting protagonists of the novels we have read. I realized my life is quite uninteresting in comparison with Charles Marlowe and Hamlet and that I should probably sail down the congo rivers and become a prince sometime in my life. I also share my birthday with Thomas Paine, General Henry Lee III, Oprah Winfrey, Elijah Woods and Aaron Carter.

Which famous historical people do ya'll share birthdays with and which protagonists do ya'll best relate to?

Blaine, I think your post is extremely interesting. I share a birthday with Tiger Woods, who is similar to some of the tragic heroes we've studied. His hamartia stemmed from anger and uncontrolable erotic desires, causing his fall. I hope my promiscuity never takes over my life like it did over tiger's.

I share a birthday with Kelsey Grammer. He is quite a talented actor but his personal affairs are something I don't admire.
