How did they know?

in General

Inspired by Mike’s toddler photos he’s been scanning and putting on the facebook, I thought I’d post a photo of one of my photos from a birthday past. I’m not quite sure how old I was celebrating this birthday – grade 8? 13 or so? The Dorothy Hamill haircut was still going strong, and for some reason, I look A LOT like Anthony Michael Hall in the classic movie, Vacation. The likeness is a uncanny. And my glasses are gigantic! Mom had a pair just like them.

In other birthday news, Google figured out July the 12th is my birthday.

I didn’t know they did that. Unless someone else named Carol is celebrating a birthday today – maybe I’ve got it all wrong?

Nah. That’s gotta be for me.

Happy Birthday!

Would be kind of unnerving though to see that on the Google home page.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY CAROL! Hope you have a great day! Will you be baking yourself a one-bowl chocolate cake? Or maybe driving yourself over to McDonalds for a large $1 Coke Zero? Or maybe both! Hope you have a great day :)

How cool is THAT?! I wonder if they’ll do the same for Art on his birthday coming up. Will have to keep an eye out. Have a fun day.
