Ten random things: August 1

Ten Augusts:

  1. J. August Richards (American actor)
  2. August, Calif. (census-designated place)
  3. "August" (John Updike poem)
  4. August (Eric Clapton album)
  5. August Krogh (Danish Nobel Prize-winning physiologist)
  6. Pernilla August (Swedish actress)
  7. August (Anthony Hopkins movie)
  8. Dan August (short-lived television series)
  9. John August (American screenwriter)
  10. Augustus Gloop (Golden Ticket winner)

I wasn't going to include Augustus Gloop, since he's an "Augustus," not an "August," but when I realized that John August wrote the screenplay for Tim Burton's Charlie and the CHocolate Factory, I knew I couldn't exclude him on a technicality.
