July 27, 2011
I wrote before about not really liking birthdays. Dunno what happened, but this year people who've been ignoring mine for years are amassing, wishing me happy birthday, treating me to meals, bringing cakes and flowers.

Another cow-orker had a birthday last week. She's been withdrawing from people increasingly over the past year, becoming angry with them, snubbing them. This year, no one recognized her birthday or feted her.

She noticed them flocking to me. She's unhappy.

Makes me think of highschool, and cliques. I've never been into cliques, and I'm not sure why I am now the popular girl.
