I have completely forgotten about this important French word until a call earlier today. A mix between Thursday and Friday with the connotation that Thursday is already Friday for drinking purposes. Santé.

I posted that a while back. Good to see it again.

Birthday.
It was one of my kid's birthdays yesterday. They were discussing telling people about their own birthdays and even as kids, they all agreed that it was bad form to announce your birthday to others.

Just saying...

Well, happy birthday.
I never tell people about it. I test their concern for me on that day.

The only one on EF who ever knew and spoke up about mine was Jagh Waugh.

Bad form? Almost every year on my birthday since I was little, I bring sweet treats for my classmates/university peers/work colleagues and basically just announce it My parents taught me this and I'm glad they did.

Happy birthday, MC!

Happy birthday MusicChick!

I don't think it's bad form to announce your birthday in certain circumstances.

Of course, the whole country announces my birthday with fireworks!

Thank you!!!! Indeed! That's what I did! Spolied them rotten! Wish I could do the same for EF, macarons and chocolate/framboise cake for all!

If you take cakes to work or school then that's different!
