It’s Tough to Forget it’s Your Birthday

Two reasons primarily, why forgetting your birthday is difficult in 2010:

1. Facebook tells everyone, so they post happy birthday wishes on your wall.

2. Every vBulletin forum to which you've ever subscribed (that's still in existence, anyway) sends you a "Happy Birthday" email. It's like a trip down memory lane… "Oh yeah, remember when I registered for that forum to ask that one question…?" Or "Remember when I lived in southern Florida and regularly read a few forums on kayak fishing…?" (etc.) They're like the ghosts of birthdays past. Once I decided I wanted to get into flying RC helicopters - not my brightest idea - and so, yep, two or three emails from various RC Heli forums. It's a long, long list.

Anyway, Happy Birthday to me. I think Carey's looking forward to it tonight more than I am - we're going to Max & Erma's for the free dessert. She really likes both their chocolate cake and their banana cream pie. Heh. 🙂

So I'm 32. The 30s are a blah decade, no? Nothing significant until you're 40. At least I can still say I'm in my early 30s. That's good for, what, another four years? Five? 🙂

OK, back to work.

P.S. I have the same birthdate as Akira Kurosawa. And others, of course, including Joan Crawford, Roger Bannister, Patricia Richardson, Chaka Khan, Jason Kidd, Keri Russell, Perez Hilton (uh), and at least one person I'm forgetting. My memory tells me it's a cute actress or singer (so she must be brunette), but I have no idea.
