A polite librarian is a good librarian.
We prefer an institutionalized policy of having a monthly "celebration" of all staff birthdays (since "institutionalized" and "celebration" go so well together). This celebration involves a standard plain cake; however, if one of the Director's Favorites has a birthday during a particular month, the director brings in a special cake. (The secretive nature of the regime has turned us all into Soviet analysts, paying attention to who stands next to whom and other clues.)
Happy Birthday, J. I know how old you are!
After all, aren't we all embarrassed if we forget a close colleague's birthday ? I'm just trying to save my co-workers that horrible feeling that a birthday may have been missed - hence the posters, the e-mail to 'all library staff', the constant mentions of 'the upcoming event'...In return, I do bring in nice cakes or home-made biscuits.
Only 2Gb? I want the new video 80Gb iPod.
