Well, yesterday was Melissa's birthday. I called her, but she was at an outdoor concert with friends, so we didn't talk much. She'll call me next week and we'll catch up then. It's guaranteed we'll talk at least once a year, after all.

It's mostly a joke when I say that everyone (or everyone important) has August birthdays, but not entirely. Several of the people I was most drawn to in high school were within a week of my age, and goodness knows I met a hell of a lot of Leos in college. But it's also true that I'm much more likely to remember August birthdays.

It got me to thinking about distributions of birthdays, though, at least partly because I've ended up discussing the characteristics of various astrological signs a lot, and because I wondered just how accurate my impressions were. So, I wrote down all the people whose birthdays I remember or could find out easily - not just current friends, but former friends, co-workers, relatives, friends' relatives...
