After a super birthday week, birthday-day went down with a dinner of all appetizers, The Kingsmen and a cake where I could eat all the flowers myself.
One of the things I love about Facebook is the practice of wishing people Happy Birthday. Some people say that social media is impersonal and makes you more isolated, but I feel more connected. I am able to be a part of friends lives that I don't get to see every day, whether it's a big event like an anniversary or small like a fantastic brunch.
On my birthday, I got to hear from friends that are here in Rochester, on the other side of the country and the other side of the world. Some I passed in the office hallway yesterday, some I haven't seen in years. And it was nice to hear from each and every one.
