22 August Fortune Teller says

Your birthday today:
You have a winsome and off-handedly humorous way of getting your own way. You are somewhat fastidious, have self-reliance, are modest and amiable. You have the ability to make othyers see things your way, and you will compel a deep and tender love.
Two people were listed in the book for having gone and gotten married on this date in 1948, but I won't list the names, because... it's not their birthday. You, on the other hand, should have a big (yet modest), humorous birthday party, and perhaps you might consider amiably inviting a few of these other birthday notables : Pope Leo XII, William S. Harney, Samuel David Luzzatto, Deng Xiaoping, Norman Schwarzkopf, Denis Papin, Henry Maudslay, William Kelly, Samuel Pierpont Langley, Bruno Pontecorvo, James Hillier, Hannspeter Winter, Masatoshi Shima, Erol Gelenbe, James Kirke Paulding, Paul Gottlieb Nipkow, Alexander Bogdanov, Max Scheler, Dorothy Parker, Ray Bradbury, James Kirkwood, Jr., E. Annie Proulx, Alfred Gough, Rich Lowry, Archibald MacNeal Willard, George Herriman, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Claude Debussy, Karlheinz Stockhausen, Sir Donald McIntyre, Dale Hawkins, Carmine Granto aka Ron Dante, Donna Godchaux, Peter Laughner, Vernon Reid, Tori Amos, Layne Staley, Paul Colman, Howie Dorough, Leni Riefenstahl, Julius J. Epstein, Colm Feore, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Ty Burrell, Richard Armitage, Rick Yune, Lucille Ricksen, Honor Blackman, Valerie Harper, Cindy Williams, Jenna Leigh Green, Ned Hanlon, Carl Yastrzemski, Diana Nyad, Doug Bair, Ray Burris, Lane Huffman, Mats Wilander, Eric Andolsek, Horst Skoff, Melville E. Stone, David Dellinger, Denton Cooley, Gerald P. Carr, I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby,

Debbi Peterson,

and John Lee Hooker.

One birthday cake, one scotch, three cheers!
Many happy returns of the day.
