Sharing a Birthday with Hannibal Lector

Thanks to FlavorWire's infographic on the birthdays of famous (and not-so-famous) fictional characters, I know now I share a birthday with Hannibal Lector. We'll be serving fava beans, a nice chianti, and... not sure what kind  of meat yet. No worries, though. Our butcher gets the freshest cuts.

Via the same infographic: my father gets MacGyver, which is so wrong (the show is schlock and Dad can hardly change a lightbulb), my Mom gets Jean-Luc Picard (whom I'm sure she's never heard of), while Patricia, poor Patricia, hardly a sci-fi fan, winds up with lesser sci-fi: Daniel Jackson of “Stargate SG-1.” Even *I* don't know who that is.

Nephews Jordy and Ryan share days with, respectively, Dr. Watson and Captain America. (That's more like it!) Grown-up nephew Casey gets Martin Riggs of “Lethal Weapon.” My sister Karen? Rick Peterson, “East Enders.” (Got nothing.) My brother Chris probably gets the best birthday companion: The King of Earth from “Time Stranger Kyoto.” I don't know who that is but it sounds impressive.

You?

Hannibal Lector, my birthday buddy

Time for the birthday cake, Clarice.

Chad: Spongebob rocks! And Charlotte is at least the dreamiest of the SATC girls...

Ashley Davies, South of Nowhere. Never heard of her or the show. Had to look it up. Oddly it was my birthday. It made me feel really old.

The birthday made you feel old, or not knowing? Because some things aren't worth knowing... I wish I could not-know many things I know...
