Hi Everyone -

I wasn't sure whether this was a really nice idea or a really lame idea, but people seem to be in favour, so I thought I'd put the thread up. :) The basic idea is that everyone posts their birth-dates below, which I'll compile into a list - along with the birth dates of some of the main North & South actors and actresses - so we can all wish each other happy birthday on the appropriate days. Or, as Qnpoohbear so brilliantly suggested, post pictures of Richard Armitage as birthday cards! :D

Birthday List: Actors and Actresses
~ Sinead Cusack: February 18
~ Rupert Evans: March 9
~ Lesley Manville: March 12
~ Jane Booker: May 9
~ Anna Maxwell Martin: May 10
~ Tim Pigott-Smith: May 13
~ Jo Joyner: May 24
~ Brian Protheroe: June 16
~ Pauline Quirk: July 8
~ Will Houston: July 19
~ Daniela Denby-Ashe: August 9
~ Richard Armitage: August 22
~ John Light: September 28
~ Brendan Coyle: December 2

Birthday List: Members
~ Donna: January 9
~ Soph: January 14
~ Marren: February 8

Thanks Anne and Rachel. I've put both of those on the list now. :)

@Rachel: My birthday's three days after yours! But I'm turning eighteen, rather than sixteen. :)


message 5: by Rachel (new)

Rachel (hopeless-wanderer) Huh, for some weird reason I had expected you to be a couple years older! :P


message 6: by Rebecca, ~Look back. Look back at me...~ (new)

Rebecca May | 1272 comments Mod
Haha, really? Clearly it's my extremely sophisticated and intelligent comments that gave you that impression... or not. :D :P


message 7: by Rachel (new)

Rachel (hopeless-wanderer) No, clearly that's the reason! xD

14th January :)

I know I already said this on the Intro thread, but Happy Birthday for the 19th! :) I've just added your birthday to the list.


message 12: by Aerykah (new)

Aerykah | 97 comments I'll be 24 on November 7th

(Just a suggestion... How about listing the birthdays by month?)


message 13: by Rebecca, ~Look back. Look back at me...~ (new)

Rebecca May | 1272 comments Mod
Thanks for that, great suggestion Aery! I feel really dumb now. :P But in my defence, I have had a slightly stressful day. Anyway, we probably don't have quite enough members to sort them all into month categories, but I'll certainly organise them so they're in chronological order. :)

Rebecca May | 1272 comments Mod
(Okay, so I know I went a bit overkill on the actors birthdays, but I thought it safest, just to be sure I wasn't shouted down if I'd chosen to exclude someone's favourite actor or something. :P Though there wasn't much chance of me leaving off Richard Armitage's birth-date, so I was probably safe anyway. :D)


message 15: by Samanta (new)

Samanta   (almacubana) | 294 comments Mine is May 20th. In three weeks I'll be 27. How the time flies! :D

Maria | 38 comments What a lovely idea! My birthday is on October 29th :)

Only three weeks, you must be looking forward to it! :) Time really does fly, though - in a couple of months I'll be eighteen, and that is a weird feeling, let me tell you. I mean, not that it signifies, but in two months I'm of the legal marriageable age! Awesome, but weird... :P

That's pretty much what I meant, Becca. Just to make it a bit easier, you know. ;)
Sorry you had a stressful day. :/ I hope things have improved.

Aerykah | 97 comments Just realized that my youngest niece missed Thornton's b-day by 3 days! And yet... Bro #6 managed to hit Henry's. How can this be?! :P

Virginia | 5 comments I'll be 23 on April 30th!

@Aery: That idea certainly has made things easier, thank you. :) I'm just ashamed I didn't think of it, its strange; I'm usually quite organised and pedantic about things like that, not at all scatterbrained. Things have improved - the deadline for the piece of work I was stressed about got pushed back 20 hours, which gives me a free afternoon and a free morning to get it finished, making my life about ten times easier. *phew* :P
What a shame your niece just missed Thornton's birthday! :D Also, Bro #6? Goodness, how many brothers do you have?!

@Virgina: Ooh, your birthday is very close, I appear to have put this thread up just in time! :) I'm sure I'll remember to wish you Happy Birthday on the day (more or less... stupid time differences...) but in any case I hope you have a lovely day on the 30th, and Happy Birthday for then! :)

Michaela | 63 comments Good idea! My birthday is on 30 March.

Well, I'm glad your life became easier! ;)
As for my family... Yeah, they've never had good b-day timing. :/ My nephew missed his dad's b-day by 1 day, my oldest niece missed mine by 6 days... You see the pattern forming? :P
And I claim 7 brothers. The oldest 5 are my biological brothers. But the youngest 2 are actually my cousins. They live with us most of the time & are kinda like brothers/sons to me, so it's just easiest to call them my brothers. Sorry if I've completely confused you... lol! ;P

Hehe, me too! :)
Yup, I can definitely see the pattern! :P Still, believe it or not, just missing birthdays is better than having a ton of people with birthdays on the same days. My aunt and her son have their birthdays on the same day, and my mum and my youngest girl cousin have their birthday on the same day too - exactly a week before Christmas, no less! It's a bit of a nightmare.

Our other family birthday pattern (sort of) is that my brother and I both have birthdays on war dates. My brothers is on ANZAC day, which is a public holiday in New Zealand - lucky him - and mine is on D-Day, but no one really knows or cares about that here. :P Occasionally I get the Queens Birthday, which is good!

Oh, I see! No, I'm not confused... yet. :P No sisters, then?

Kate (kwolicki) | 152 comments My, I feel terribly old! Oh well. My birthday is in March (pick a day, I do not share it with the Internet). And I am old enough to be your mother (most of you) and not old enough to be your grandmother. ;)

I'll give you the sixteenth - I like that number, and it's pretty much in the middle. :) If for some reason you hate that number, just let me know and I'll try to find another one for you.

Joining in the age comparisons - I am 18 :)

Aerykah | 97 comments @Becca - Yeah, I suppose so. ;) I don't think any of us were born on a holiday... though my grandma's b-day occasionally lands on Mother's Day.

Sisters? I have one -- she's 10 yrs. older than me. ;)

That must be nice for your grandmother. :) What better day for a birthday to land on?

Cool! :) I would love to have a sister.


message 37: by Kate (new)

Kate (kwolicki) | 152 comments Thanks, Becca, I like just-past-the-Ides of March, the 16th is lovely.

And Thanks, Qnpoohbear, I appreciate not being the sole group member not born after 1990! This despite thinking myself non-ageist.

I shall attempt to not be maternal, young whippersnappers. Happy I-have-underpants-older-than-you Birthdays to all.


message 38: by Kate (new)

Kate (kwolicki) | 152 comments PS Mr Darcy is older than me (well now he is anyway.) And I am younger than Fitzfitzfitzfitzfitzfitzfitzfitzfitzfitzwilliam but older than Fitzfitzfitzfitzfitzfitzfitzfitzfitzfitzfitzwilliam. But Soph, I think you should meet Fitzfitzfitzfitzfitzfitzfitzfitzfitzfitzfitzwilliam, he 's just your age, and so fitzy!

Also, Happy Birthday to Virgina! I know I've probably got the wrong day due to time differences, but it's the night of the thirtieth for me, so I just thought I'd put it out there. :)

I hope you have an absolutely lovely birthday, Virgina. :)

Happy Birthday Virgina!

.... Yes Kate cause that's what they do to the name as it goes through the generations!!!!!!! And anyway, if I was so lucky as to meet a Fitzwilliam Darcy I would be happy, even if his name was Fitzfitzwilliam - not that it would be!
You are such a tease! *grumble grumble grumble. Walks off muttering and tuting utter my breath*
