Final day of November, folks!
Big Bang's Kaley Cuoco turns 31 and her hair has grown back. The girl knows how to party. Elisha Cuthbert -- better known as Jack Bauer's daughter, Kim in "24" -- turn 34 today. Or did she star on "34" and it's the other way around? No matter.

ON THIS DAY

Author Jonathan Swift was born on this date in 1667. He had success with the book, "Gulliver's Travels" and thanked all the little people who made it possible.

On this date in 1782, the American Revolutionary War ended... and the first series of Time-Life books was born.

In 1804, the first U.S. Supreme Court Justice to be impeached, Samuel Chase, went on trial.
He was acquitted, but because of his questionable behavior, they named a bank after him.
He was acquitted and went on to lead a Chase and decent life.
He was acquitted so I guess that makes me feel better about my money being in his bank.
When you think about it, that kind of explains where we are today.

Good day for authors: Samuel Clements, alias "Mark Twain," was born on this date in 1835. He kept writing one great book after the other: "Tom Sawyer," "Huckleberry Finn," "The Prince and the Pauper"... readers all across America couldn't wait to catch the next Twain.

TEN OLD-FASHIONED WAYS TO SAY 'SEX'

While we refer to sex as anything from "hooking up" to "hanky panky," people throughout history have had their own special phrases. By consulting the "1811 Dictionary of the Vulgar Tongue," MentalFloss.com has found several euphemisms for sex that were often said in 19th-century England--even among the conservative and highly polite upper crust.

Top 10 old-fashioned ways to talk about sex:

1. Amorous congress
This is the most polite way to say that a couple is having sex.

2. Bread and butter
One on top of the other.

3. Brush
A brief, meaningless fling.

4. Convivial society
Similar to "amorous congress" and used primarily by upper class society.

5. Face-making
This comes from "making children"--because babies have faces.

6. Green gown
Giving a girl a green gown can only happen in the grass.

7. Pully hawly
A game at pully hawly is a series of affairs.

8. A stitch
Similar to having a brush, "a stitch" is a casual affair.

9. Take a flyer
"Flye…

WHAT YOUR WORK SPACE SAYS ABOUT YOU

Whether it's just an area for paying bills or the center of a home business, your work area speaks volumes about who you really are. "The items on your desk or dining room table are a dead giveaway to your personality," says Chicago psychologist Miriam Fox. "Every object tells a story about you."

Memorabilia
The collectibles you've gathered reveal the loving relationships in your life. Your keepsakes make you seem more approachable, and people naturally turn to you for advice and comfort. You are a compassionate person who can be a loyal confidante without passing judgment or jumping to conclusions.

Uncluttered
Everything is tucked away in its place and you are focused on the task at hand. The clean surface also indicates you're a person with traditional values with enduring beliefs. But if the uncluttered top hides messy desk drawers, it proves you appreciate order even when you're unable to maintain it.

Plants
Your green thumb denotes you're a perso…

HAVE YOU GIVEN YOUR CAR A NICKNAME?

25 percent of us have given our vehicles a special name, according to an online survey by Nationwide Insurance of 1,082 car owners. "U.S. consumers have an emotional connection to their cars. The memories car owners experience with their automobiles are very special to them," said Matt Jauchius, Nationwide's chief marketing officer. "Discovering the number of people who nickname their cars is a true demonstration of this connection." Want more?
36 percent of young adults, ages 18 to 34, have a nickname for their car, far more than any other age group.31 percent were inspired to give their car a nickname based on its color and appearance.27 percent of women and 17 percent of men have a nickname for their vehicle.26 percent think of their car as a female.Men are more likely than women to name their car after a famous/historical person (9 percent men vs. 4 percent women) or character in a movie (10 percent men vs. 4 percent women).

"Balls to the wall is an aviation term," meaning that the throttle (ball) is pushed all the way forward to the instrument panel (wall).The traditional way to eat sushi is not with chopsticks.

EVENTS A WOMAN SHOULD NEVER AVOID

Cosmopolitan offers us seven events a woman should never sidestep:

Not filing your taxes
Forget trying to pull a fast one on Uncle Sam.

Blowing a date off without warning
In this age of cell phones, beepers and e-mail, there's no excuse for standing him up.

Breaking a promise to your boss
Never say the words "I do" to the head honcho and fizzle on your follow-through.

Bailing on a friend in crisis
No one wants to play therapist 24 hours a day, but if your pal is in genuine pain, the least you can do is lend an ear.

Not sending a condolence card
It only takes three seconds to extend your sympathy when a friend loses a loved one.

Copping out on the break-up talk
If you've been dating for more than a couple of months the least he deserves is the "it's not you, it's me" conversation.

Avoiding questions about your sexual history
If you plan to get hot-and-heavy with a new man, he deserves to know if you have a clean bill of health.

Of course, all of these could apply t…
