Yeah yeah, I know it should be “from whom“. This is the web, baby. Where you write emails in smaller case without punctuation, don’t start with the name of the person you’re emailing (seems rude to me…sorta like addressing someone you know well with “Oi you!”), and don’t put your name at the end (also seems rude – but that’s web etiquette).
Lookin’ at yas over a half-full glass, ’twas me birthday a few days back, and I’m thrilled to report that I received more birthday greetings this year – 7 – than I can remember receiving before (that covers the last 8 – 10 years, I suspect…you never can be sure exactly when that short-term memory mule kicks in). One was via Facebook, the rest emailed. And 4 were from sources I am only vaguely familiar with: Wishlist, Birthday Alarm, Astrology.com and Web2mail. Must have signed up with them some time. None sent presents, but it’s the thought that counts.
