This Day in History - Assorted

CLEOPATRA COMMITS SUICIDE:

Cleopatra, queen of Egypt and lover of Julius Caesar and Mark Antony, takes her life following the defeat of her forces against Octavian, the future first emperor of Rome.

I hear she was quite the looker. A slut, but a looker.

1992: Northern Exposure wins Emmy

TV series Northern Exposure wins the Emmy for Outstanding Drama Series. The offbeat show, about a Manhattan doctor forced to work in a small Alaska town, consistently ranked in the Top 20 most-watched TV shows until it was cancelled in 1995.
I fucking loved that show! It was hilarious.
Except the last season sorta started going downhill what with so many 'visions' and all. If you watched the show you would know what I'm talking about.

Okay, that's enough history lesson for now. Get busy.
