fair may 2

leave a comment »

How strange: “May 2” is archaic English for maiden, as in “behold the fair May 2”. I forgot that my birthday was also the anniversary of the deaths of Leonardo da Vinci and Joe McCarthy, and J Edgar Hoover died on my 4th birthday. I also share my birthday with Engelbert Humperdink, David Bloody Beckham, and Jerome K Jerome, a very wise man who said this:

I like work: it fascinates me. I can sit and look at it for hours. I love to keep it by me: the idea of getting rid of it nearly breaks my heart.
