I've been pleasantly surprised by my RealLife and LJ friends. Thanks guys!
Work on the other hand I'm disappointed with. I'm pretty cynical so I didn't expect much more than a Happy Birthday! on my whiteboard. A ballon and some cube decoration if I was really lucky, but the non-response surprised even me. I know several of them knew, and HR usually e-mails the manager too. Last frickin baby or wedding shower I'm going to for these frickin people.
Off to the game......... Go Astros!
