Seth wanted me to post this
Me: It's girly.
Seth: Aren't you a girl?
Me: Nope. I'm an old lady.
Seth: You are not old!
Me: In six hours I will be.
Seth: I want you to post this in your journal and see how long it takes you to get flamed.

If you are old I am near death

So a birthday is coming, is it? I just turned 34, I think I got you beat!

Re: If you are old I am near death

I don't actually think that I'm old. Nobody but Seth can see my gray hairs anyway. I'll be 28, which I know isn't old. But this year I'm feeling particularly old. The 13 women I know who had or will be having babies between January and June aren't helping. ;)

Re: If you are old I am near death

I know what you mean about the babies. I have been trying to get pregnant (have miscarried three times) since 1998 when I was 28. I don't have gray hair-yet. Only a matter of time. I am doing fertility treatments while applying to adopt, so I am an emotional and physical mess at times. I am here if you need/want to talk about it. 28 was a GREAT year for me, I hope it will be for you.

Re: If you are old I am near death

You're younger than me?! Oh crap, now I feel old. Okay, only a year younger. I'll be 29 at the end of February. D00d.. you can't be old, because that makes me old. And dammit, I'm a youngin'. :) :)

Happy birthday, BTW. :)

You, sir, are a spring chicken. I am oldish. But that's all in my head.

Still wet behind the ears!

Oh, and happy birthday Karen (well, it is here).

Old is as Old does...

Oh PUH-Lez...

I'm turning 38 next month, so if **you're** OLD then I'm rolling in my grave.

Huh. Never noticed how dusty it was down here. Can anyone recommend a good grave cleaning service? ;oP

Re: Old is as Old does...

My husband laughed at your comment. Just thought you'd like to know.

Re: Old is as Old does...

hehehehe.... =0)

Though, chronologically, it appears that mishnateh is further in the grave than I am, by about two years...

Oh just wait til you turn 30...then we'll see...

Re: Old is as Old does...

I'm actually not worried about 30. And I don't think I will be then either. I have very strange, specific reasons for not liking 28, which I had planned to post about later, and still intend to do, but then I had that conversation with Seth and he specifically told me to post it.

Re: Old is as Old does...

Well, in a weird way, I understand that. Turning 38 is the same way for me. I don't think I'll weird out when the 40 hits. I didn't when 20 or 30 hit. Twenty years ago this year is when I graduated from highschool, etc. Except, like you, I felt old at 28 and now I feel younger than 38...go figure...

By the way: I think your husband is *very* astute... =0)

Oh my crap!! 28!!! You are old!
Think of it this way, though, if you were a Twinkie, you'd still be as fresh and moist as the day you were made.

you made me laugh so hard I almost choked. If I'd been taking a sip right then, there'd be coke splattered all over my laptop and I'd have been less amused. ;)

Indeed, the grave cleaning service. I'm 34 also, therefore *very* old, right? ;-)
estherchaya From: estherchaya Date: January 28th, 2004 03:36 pm (UTC) (Link)
No, no, no.
ME being old does NOT mean that anyone else is old.

Age is a state of mind.

>Age is a state of mind.

Then you, my dear are out of yours. 28 is not old. Old doesn't happen until one is firmly in the 30s.

Crap.

Age is not in the mind, it is in the heart. You don't seen anyone saying

"Oh, he's so young at mind." Do you?

28?? And you're still alive?? I can't believe parts aren't falling off of you. How do you manage typing with those creaky fingers? Did you hire some spry, youthful 8 year old to take dictation?

I have to tell you, if you somehow manage to hang onto life by your fingernails till 29 we're turning you into Soylent Green.

man, you old!

i've decided that in order to not get old, i am never going to age anymore. i turn 21 again this year. i like being 21. i think i'm going to stay 21 forever. :)

Happy birthday! Remember: growing old isn't so bad; it beats the alternative. May you endure this birthday angst another 92 times. :-)
