July 26. Another year, another birthday. “Has it really been a year since my last birthday?” I ask myself. I think some more. I can’t even remember my last birthday. Wow. When did my birthday go from the event of the year to just another Thursday? Not that it really matters, of course. I’m fine with it all. Just glad to still be here!
Astrology is hit and miss at best, but I thought I’d see what it says about me. I’m a Leo, naturally, and my ego needs stroking. What do the stars say? Well, for starters, I have “amazing star quality and an intriguing personality” according to one Internet source. Star quality! I like the sound of that until I consider that stars are giant gaseous balls.
Hmm. What else does it say about July 26 natives? “In romance, they may be skeptical.” Nah. Not me. Clueless would be a better word, but not skeptical. “Naturally dramatic and showy, these men and women like to project an image of carelessness…” Carelessness? As a dramatic and showy person I resent that characterization! Clumsy, yes, but careless? Okay, what else do the stars say about me and my 7/26 birth-buddies? Ah! “These savvy people are unlikely to take advice from anyone. They seem to have an innate sense of what they must do in order to be a success on their own terms.” Let’s call that one a “miss.” I welcome advice (though I may not take it) and the only thing that I have innate is my lack of savvy-ness.
Famous people born on July 26 include: Gracie Allen, Mick Jagger, Carl Jung, Kevin Spacey, Nana Visitor, Kate Beckinsale, Sandra Bullock, Blake Edwards, Aldous Huxley, Dorothy Hamill, Stanley Kubrick, Helen Mirren, Jeremy Piven, Jason Robards, Vivian Vance and George Bernard Shaw.
Not so famous people born on July 26 who nevertheless possess “star quality and an intriguing personality”: that would be me.
I’m just saying…
