july 13 is the best day ever...

so my good friend christopher tagged me for this birthday thing. apparently a lot of stuff has happend on my bithday but here are the things that peaked my interest...

1837 - Queen Victoria of the United Kingdom moves into the first Buckingham Palace in London and is the first British monarch to live there.

1923 - The Hollywood Sign is officially dedicated in the hills above Hollywood, Los Angeles. It originally reads "Hollywoodland " but the four last letters are dropped after renovation in 1949.

1983 - Around 3,000 Tamils were slaughtered by Sinhalese Buddhist majority in Sri Lanka and some 400,000 Tamils fled to neighboring Tamil Nadu, India and a lot found refuge in Europe and Canada. This incident, known as Black July led directly to beginning of civil war in Sri Lanka. this is a little interesting considering i have been to sri lanka and have a HUGE heart for the people!

oh and guess who i share a birthday with??.....one of the Caesars....nobody else was really interesting!
