Happy Birthday to Me!

I'm 25 today.
Here I am with my dad in 1983. I was a hirsute newborn, but I think you can see who's to blame.
Sadly, I will probably not get a cake as long as I am tall this year.
My brother, Ben, and I were born 2 years and 9 days apart. As kids, we always shared a birthday party. If I'm reading those candles correctly, we are 6 and 8 in this picture. I'm the one with the pink headband, rocking the Hermione hair before it was cool.

On this day in 1640, the Treaty of Ripon was signed. In 1825, the Erie Canal opened. In 1881, the famous gunfight at the O.K. Corral took place in Tombstone, AZ.

I share my birthday with William Sprague, Benjamin Guggenheim, Hillary Rodham Clinton, and Seth MacFarlane.
