Those of you who are not on Facebook (like those of you without faces — shoutout to themiddle) will never understand how handy this thing is. It reminds you of all your friends’ birthdays, and provides details about their lives that you might never think to ask about. Through Facebook, I found out that someone I knew from my old synagogue got married (and I didn’t know he was engaged); and I was just invited to an engagement party for someone I didn’t know was engaged. Engagement announcement via Facebook party invite: now that’s so 2007 of them.

By the way the aforementioned engaged person is Jewlicious Festival regular, Jonathan Haijdu, aka WineGuy. Mazal tov to WineGuy and his fiancee Ellie. If you’re on Facebook, drop by his page and wish him happiness!
