For some of you, this will be the fourth time you’re seeing this post and if that is the case – you should totally re-read it because it’s hilarious!  Why in the world would I be posting something for four years in a row you ask?  Because it’s my birthday and I feel like taking the day off.

So without further adeu…..

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away…..

Seriously, though, today is a very special day in history. Wanna know why? Because today is my birthday. Now, of course, I’ll never tell you how old I am, but I have compiled a list of some celebs who share this awesome day with me.

Here we go….

Everyone’s favorite castaway, gay lawyer, astronaut and Bosom Buddy…. the mermaid lovin’ Tom Hanks, was born on July 9th 1956.

Hmmm, I’m not sure if anyone gives a rats ass about this dude, because I sure don’t, but since he has the awesomest birthday of all time, I threw him in. In case you’re wondering just who this ugly mug belongs to, it’s Jimmy Smits and I have no idea what he was in except for LA Law in the 90’s that my parents used to watch. He was born in 1955.

Yup, Kevin Arnold….ooops, I mean Fred Savage, and I share the same fabulous birthday, but he was popped out in 1976.

Singer and actress extraordinaire Courtney Love graced us with her presence on July 9, 1964

And last but not least, my favorite: Orenthal James Simpson (aka OJ Simpson or simply “The Juice”) was born on July 9, 1947. He needs no introduction.

If the glove doesn’t fit you must acquit.

  5. Happy Birthday !!! Have a very happy and fun day!!!

  6. I hope that you have a wonderful birthday!!!

  7. Happy birthday. You share your day with quite the list of people.

  8. Happy 29th – again. I’m required by family law to have the same age birthday yearly. If I break the law, my sister in law will age. It’s not allowed. I like this law and gleefully abide by it annually! Have a blast!

  9. What a coincidence… I will be 29 again for the 12th time in December! 😉

  10. Happy 29th! Hope you have a happy birthday today!

  11. Happy Happy Birthday!! I only share a birthday with some rather unsavory characters…like Hitler. 🙁

  12. Happy Birthday – I hope it is fantastic! I just celebrated my first 29th birthday last month!

  13. This is funny! My husband shares some celebrity birthdays too with Jim Carry and a few famous others. I’m actually not sure who I share a birthday with. I should look this up just for fun. Happy Birthday!!

  14. it’s my Dad’s birthday, too. And his cats…. they were both born on this day. Happy Birthday!

  15. A fellow cancer (mine was on Sunday)! Happy birthday — enjoy our day off.

  16. Happy Birthday! I’ll bet Jimmy Smits does not look like that anymore…neither does FS…or OJ….and I hope not CL.

  17. Happy Birthday you gorgeous 29 year old!

  18. Happy Birthday! well 1 out of 5 ain’t bad – love Tom Hanks!

    Hope you have an awesome day 🙂

  19. Happy birthday!! While I’m not 29 yet, I see me being stuck at an age in the future 😉

  20. Oh well that was fun! I wonder if i share my birthday with any celebrities! I think Fred Savage is my favorite from the Celebs that share your birthday! Happy Birthday!

  21. So much fun to see who shares your birthday! Hope it’s a special one!

  22. What a coincidence! I too am 29. This post makes me want to research celebrities who might share my birthday.

  23. Very interesting post. I think I’ll have to check if any famous people share my birthday. I could be in great company and not even know.

  24. Wishing you a very happy 29th. How many does this make?

  25. I’m 29 too, and I can’t wait to be 30!! I am doing the “30 before 30” challenge, which is more like a bucket list before you kick the 20s goodbye. 🙂

  26. Happy Birthday!!! I celebrate mine that was in June this weekend. All of my family members were on vacay when it was my birthday. LOL

    Have fun!

  27. Happy Birthday. BTW – I’ve been 24 for many birthdays now! 🙂

  28. Happy 21st! Hope it’s a great one!

  29. Happy Birthday!!! This is so fun. My birthday is coming up on the 13th. I need to find out what significant things have happened on my birth date.

  30. Happy Birthday!!! You are so young 😉

  31. Good for you taking the day off! Happy Birthday to you!!

  32. Happy birthday! I’m just one day behind you – Jessica Simpson and I share the day!

  33. Happy Birthday!! You share with some interesting folks!

  34. Hilarious descriptions!! Happy birthday! I hope you have a fabulous day.

  35. Happy Birthday! So what you’re saying is that you were born some time between Fred and OJ? So sad for you that you share OJ’s special day too.

    Oh and I did some math but it doesn’t add up. You say it’s the 4th time you’ve posted it and you mention being 29, so I assumed it meant you’re 33 but I think you’re slightly older based on some of your awesome pictures of you in your youth. My sister was born in 80 and she has some of those fabulous 70s-like pictures that you have but I’m not buying it. Thus I think you were born maybe 1 year before Fred Savage. Making you not 29 but not 40 either 🙂

    • Not that I think you look close to 40. Being not 29 but not 40 myself, I seem to have completely lost the ability to read people’s ages and I truly can’t tell if someone is 29 or 50 lately. Perhaps this has something to do with someone recently expressing complete shock (and not in a good way) that I am my mother’s daughter and not her sister. Yeah, I might need a plastic surgeon STAT.

  36. Happy Birthday! I need to search who I share my birthday with.

  37. Happy Birthday…You share a birthday with my sister who was amazing in every way. We lost her in 1976 but I know that your day is blessed. Besides I think it is we who have the gift of getting to know you. I love following your posts and laugh along with you and follow your travels. So while it is your birthday …Thanks for being a gift in my life <3

  38. How much fun is this. I loved the OJ reference.

  39. Wow, I turn 23 this weekend and I am not ready at all! I loved being 22 and 23 doesn’t seem fun. Happy Birthday though!

  40. I love Tom Hanks, one of the greatest actors ever.

  41. Happy Birthday. It is so cool that you share your birthday with Tom Hanks!

  42. First off, happy b-day! Now this is beyond funny.. you might not believe it.. but we are the same age!!! (again!) 😉

  43. You crack me up!! You deserve the day off!!!

  44. Happy Birthday Robin! You may be 29, but you don’t look a day over 18 😉
