Birthday-o-rama

Facebook now has a handy dandy Birthday Calendar. Since they display every forthcoming birthday when you first log in anyway, I don’t really see what the benefit would be. I guess if you’re anal-retentive about copying your friend’s birthdays in a hardcopy notebook, it would be useful for writing reminders to yourself in advance. Plus, some friends get pissy if you forget their birthdays. Like Holly, whose birthday is October 20th and I totally promise I’ll remember this year. It’s in my planner. I’ll write it on my hand. And set my phone. Geez. Sorry, Holly.
