On this day about 40 years ago......

Annie Mole was born

Other people who share my birthday - writer, F Scott Fitzgerald, muppet maker, Jim Henson, Paul McCartney's first wife - Linda, American gymnasts the Hamm twins.

Cat in the Hat writer Dr Suesss also died on my birthday in 1991, as did French writer Francoise Sagan last year.

So far today online, I've received a birthday email from jazzfm (now
smoothfm) by favourite radio station, an e-card from a webmail account care2, and e-cards from a variety of mates. Surprisingly few emails from the countless other online things that I sign up for who insist on asking for my date of birth and yet can't even be arsed to send me an e-card.

Today, will be a relatively quiet day mooching around shops and stuff with my boyfriend, comedy club in the evening and then there's a party tomorrow.

More tube related stuff may follow later today.....

UPDATE - Comedy Club jokes

Sorry more tube stuff didn't follow but thought you might like to have a few jokes from the excellent set at the Bearcat Comedy Club - Including outstanding headline acts Jeff Green, Junior Simpson and brilliant Stuart Hudson and a mad Canadian guy - Phil Nichol. Plus two other good short acts and one mediocre one.

Stuart Hudson"Beyonce - she should get married to Roy Castle"

St Margarets (near Twickenham, where the comedy was - called "working class posh") - "It's so posh here I bet you get The Big Issue delivered."

"I came out of St Margarets station and a Big Issue vendor was carrying a sign saying "Hungry and second homeless"

Stuart Hudson - quite a large scruffy looking guy - look at his picture
- first line when he came on stage "I know what you're thinking - that Daniel Bedingfield's let himself go".

UPDATE - Birthday party photos
