This isn’t meant as a knock against people on Facebook who have me friended. Of course the really important birthdays I legitimately remember, and know my friends to do. I just imagine there are people out there who swear by birthday reminders of various types and then just send an email. I guess that’s why I like having a small group of friends instead of various acquaintances. I actually do have birthday plans, just not ones that I made myself. But it’s going to wait until Friday because I know I really won’t want to go to work or do much of anything the morning after.
