The deluge of well wishers on Facebook on your birthday is one of the great marvels of the modern age. Far flung aunts, uncles, and cousins, friends you have not seen in too long, and people you see every day make you feel like the most important person in the world -- for at least a day. Well played, Facebook.
I told Edz all I wanted for my birthday was her love and affection, so I have everything I hoped for. But I also got a promotion yesterday, which was a nice surprise.
