This Day In History

Tony Lazzeri
June 3rd
1932 – Lou Gehrig and teammate Tony Lazzeri hit four home runs in one game, and Tony Lazzeri hit for the natural cycle. Hitting for the natural cycle is when a player hits a single, a double, a triple, and a home run in that order and within one game.  Both of the feats are less common than a perfect game, which has occurred 21 times in 120 years of baseball.

Anniversary Debate...

Our first picture together, June 2007

4 years ago today I went on my very first date with my husband. It was a Sunday night. He took me to Fleming's Steak House. We had wine and crab legs, it couldn't have been better. I had seen him for the first time 3 days prior. He was infront of me in line at the DMV. I should've known we were compatable by the fact that we had both waited until the last day of the month to renew our license plate tags. He had gym shorts, a t-shirt, gray New-Balance sneakers, and a backwards hat on. He kept looking back at me in line.
When it was my turn at the counter, he had already left the building. I remember trying to hurry up the process as much as possible with the chance meeting of him in the parking lot.... No luck. He was gone.
I had never seen him before and figured I'd never see him again. Until... the very next day, Friday, I was going through the bank drive-thru on the opposite side of town. I looked over to my right, and there he was. The car next to me. I looked at him, he looked at me. I had just gotten my reciept and drove off as fast as I could because I was so nervous.
The next day, Saturday, I had told my sister about the events that had occured the last two days and dicussed the likelyhood of seeing him again, and wasn't it so strange to see him back-to-back days... it had to mean something!! She was coming into town that evening for a friends birthday. My options of places to go were the Shag/Fedora area (which I hated then and still do) or Citrus. Citrus was a popular club at the time and I had never been there, so Citrus it was!
We handed the door guy our ID's and walked in. I looked up and there he was. He was all dressed up, his hair was all spikey, and almost a deal-breaker... he had sunglasses on INSIDE!! He walked right up to me and I to him. He said, "I know you." I said, "I saw you in line at the DMV." We talked all night, exchanged numbers and the rest is history.
September 4th, 2009
This brings me to my thought... Once you are married, do you still celebrate your initial anniversary? It was our anniversary first... though a marriage anniversary has so much more meaning behind it. June 2nd & September 4th are such important days to me... One, I met the man that I'm going to spend the rest of my life with and the other was the day he became my husband and we vowed to love eachother forever.
So what do you think? Should you celebrate both?

This Day In History

June 1st -
1533 Anne Boleyn was crowned Queen of England. She became the second wife of King Henry VIII. This was short lived. She was beheaded less than 3 years later in May of 1536 after being found guilty of adultery and incest. Modern historians find the carches against her to be unconvincing. Her daughter Elizabeth I of England would later become Queen of England. King Henry VII ended up having a total of 6 wives, 2 of which he had beheaded.


Today I decided to jump on the wagon that is already holding over 200 million users.... I started a twitter account!!! Appropriately named maijapinion. I went in, set up my profile, added a picture & bio, but when it came to speaking to the masses know as the internet, I had to call my husband to find out how to write my very first Tweet! This was frustrating because I consider myself very tech-savvy. But for some reason I couldn't put two-and-two together and figure out the the pen and pad icon might be where I need to start!! And not to mention, my husband doesn't even have Facebook & his first email account was set up by me less than 6 months ago.
So make sure you follow me on Twitter :)
