well, that's pretty rambling. Are you sure you're not a bat?

LOL.

I think as artists, the patina of age on eyes, and hair, and muscles, can inform and refine your work. The experience can color it, compensate for the fading energy and departed rampant violence of youth. Punks like the Mekons of 1977 turn into the alt-country pioneers of the mid-80s, turning into the alt-rock agitators of teh 90s, and they turn into the english-folk-punks of the new century. Art should be about the changes, about the transitions of life, shouldn't it?

Having said that, FIFTY!?!??! you old fart. Yeah, you better bring those earplugs to the party, we will probably be too loud for you, even if we're playing ELO. LOL.

I often take solace in the fact that I'm not as old as you... :)

I'll be fine, but some days I'd really like my old boobs back. Oh wait!! I've got old boobs!

I remember thinking MAN I WISH I KNEW THIS WHEN I WAS ELEVEN when I was seventeen.

Are you going to have gun cake?

Gun cake will make you feel better, Jennifer.
I'd like to be 30 again.

oooo, I have a gift for you.

How far is The Plastic from a natural water source?

I'd like to be 30 again.

I wouldn't. I was an asshole then.

Not like now.

It's tempting to walk back through the memory corridors and replay my 30th birthday, but I might get lost on the way back.

LOL at the gun cake.

Yeah, 30 sounds good. Or... being this age, but knowing at 30 what I do now... or knowing at 11 what Substance did at 17! :)

ZRM- how large must the natural water source be?

It's tempting to walk back through the memory corridors and replay my 30th birthday, but I might get lost on the way back.

Did you wear a smoking jacket?

Oddly enough, yes...

Now I am comfort-drinking and listening to Crispy Ambulance, and it is *all Jennifer's fault*.
If I knew then what I know now -- but the thirst for knowledge drives me forward

I hope you're celebrating with Magic Shell™!

Yes, it's all my fault... something parochial school and those pesky Lutherans instilled in me long ago.

Somehow I had made it this far without ever having heard of Crispy Ambulance, but I know them now! I'm still learning!!!!

Happy Birthday Week Eve, Fellow Traveler!

Man, this whole aging thing is a puzzle I'm trying to put together in my mind. IT'S SO WEIRD how one day you're 30 and the next you're 50! Where did those 20 years go? I know where they went, the day ins and day outs of it all -- but, man, I wish someone had told me they'd *really* go by. I know I knew it, but at the same time, I didn't know it at all!

Whaaaaaaaa! (That's me crying like a baby. The 8 month old baby I used to be!! Oh, those were the days!!)

I have a friend who is in his late 70s. Still incredibly active. Plays out in live band, writes articles for a magazine in NYC, still parties his brains out. He's a cool dude, has had an extremely interesting life. Anyway, last year on FB he posted this:

Inside every older person is the young person they used to be screaming, What The F***?!

I loved that.

Ok, I'm rambling. Enjoy this time, Birthday Girl!

- but the thirst for knowledge drives me forward

It's not knowledge I am usually thirsty for.

Forgot to say: Total lol @ gun cake. lolololol

Thanks, BG!

I love this:

Inside every older person is the young person they used to be screaming, What The F***?!

So true.

IT'S SO WEIRD how one day you're 30 and the next you're 50! Where did those 20 years go?

I KNOW!!! There are days when I don't even want to be busy. I don't want to be running from one thing to the next because that just makes it go faster.

Also... I'm still 49. :) I'm clinging to it for a few more days. :) I should get an extra month as 49 since I basically thought of myself as 50 for the past month. Is there an age ATM?? Can I withdraw another month?

There are days when I don't even want to be busy. I don't want to be running from one thing to the next

That's *definitely* one of the coolest things about getting older -- not just flying around at the speed of light mindlessly like when you (universal you) were young. That's one of the reasons those 20 years went by so damn fast!!

Let each day drag!!

Inside every older person is the young person

NOM NOM NOM

Is there an age ATM?? Can I withdraw another month?

Harlan Ellison
Would like a word with you.

"My eyes are not what they were, my hair is not what it was, oh hell... nothing physical is what it was..."

Bullshit, your smile is way better.

:)

It's hard not to smile when looking at a fully grown man in a "Birthday Girl" sash and princess hat.

J this post SPOKE to me

If I can take the age bullet for you and spare you some angst... good. :)

"WHAT WAS YOUR PROBLEM!??! YOU WERE FINE! WHY DID YOU LISTEN TO EVERY ASSHOLE WHO HAD A COMPLAINT?"

AND WHILE YOU'RE AT IT, GET OFF MY LAWN!!!

I'll be fine, but some days I'd really like my old boobs back.

Sheesh, can't you just hang your coats on a hook on the door?

:)

Happy B-DAY!!!!one1!

(I'm assuming that four days is enough for a 'handful'.)
~

WRONG! A handful was 5. :) But thank you just the same.

I'M STILL 49!!! Tomorrow, the blog will be decked out with black bunting.

Happy Birthday Eve!!

Happy Birthday, Jennifer.

I am going to play the rare sincere Brando card and say that seeing how witty, creative, and active you are is an inspiration. It may be hard to look back and see how the years have gone by, but at the same time, it's great to see how much you are doing right now.

Wait!?! No dick jokes??? BUT?!?!?! Who are you and what have you done with our Brando?!?

Thank you, Brando. That was sweet. I'll try to do even more... after I pimp my U-Scoot. :)

the deck is not wheelchair accessible, Jennifer. Better bring your four-point cane.

Being part of the 50 club this year, I decided not to just celebrate the day, but the whole year. I am changing things I need to for good health without pharmaceutical drugs, little by little getting better at stretching and exercise and making it fun. Really appreciating life and embracing the future with all I know now. I have a metro mobility driving job and get to drive 95 year old charmers sometimes who are vibrant, sharp and mobile that look at me and say, oh dear, your just a baby!!
I am so excited for the future, and today.
I am also honored to be the same age as you!!
You are very inspiring.
Happy Birthday to you :-)
Woo Hoo !!

The feeling is mutual, m'dear. :)
