    I'm 50. I thought I'd been fairly obnoxious about pointing that out. (It's not that I'm proud of it, it's more like I can't believe it, and have to keep saying it till it sinks in.):shocked:

    I think Gungas is around my age. Niwi is around 30. And Doc may be older than me, I can't remember. But none of them have been here in awhile, so I get the Old Fart crown for now.:cry:

    Well, he's the founder of the feast. I was just counting guests. Not nice to say disparaging things about the host, no matter how ill-mannered and decrepit he is. :wink:









    It's hard for me to say things like that about him!

    Csesc Raf, I am glad to see you've already become a part of the forum! I am sorry I haven't been around lately.

    Klara--after the Silly March in March, we should resume talk about le fromage grand 70th--via email or on the other website. I think people think I'm being anal, wanting to start so early, but I know I'm not the only procrastinator in the world, and coordinating contributions from 3 continents won't be simple.

    Oops! Don't want to give away anything more than that!

    You're absolutely right, Mrsthing. It will be here before we know it! And it's not just any thing, it's LFG70TH!
    It'll take some rigorous preparation and organizing. I don't care about what other people say... I want this to be perfect.
    Perfect or nothing!

    By the way, thank you all! It's nice to be back!

    It's not better Zelda. Young doesn't mean more expired. But young people... ( i dont know that i'm young or in middle age... shit ) ... they are thinkig, that if they are young, it will be easier to bit expirence, and show to the world, that age is more important ... im tired, sorry for grammar and mistakes..

    MrsThing, 4 continents... I also wrote on the Goodies website, which is Australian based...
    • CommentAuthormrsthing
    • CommentTimeOct 23rd 2008
     
    North America, Europe, Australia--have we got Asia, too?

    Being young usually means NO arthritis, NO menopause, and you get to keep all your hair. If I could have my hair and my fitness back, I'd cope with the hot flashes and mood swings and say middle age wasn't so bad. But I can't, so it sucks. But it beats the alternative. :bigsmile:

    Oh, you meant Australia as the third continent? Sorry, then!
  1.  
    ... I graduated high school (12th grade) in 1975 ...

    ... And was watching "Monty Python's Flying Circus" on Sunday nights on the local PBS station out of New York ...

    ... why do I suddenly feel very old? ...

    ... 1986? I was working in Manhattan ...

    Okay, so much for stopping in tonight! Get me my shawl and my rocking chair ...

    Oh, you're also older than me, Jersey!
  2.  
    ... I have a feeling I'm older than God at this point ...

    Or at least have been around since God was a sophomore. Funny, I didn't feel this way until I got to this board!

    And as I recall, there are 5 continents: Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe and the Americas.

    Yes, I know, but MrsThing talked about our project, which would cover 3 continents (well, at least it would mean people from 3 conts.)

    How old are you?
    • CommentAuthormrsthing
    • CommentTimeOct 24th 2008
     
    No, Jersey--God is going to be 69 on Monday. :wink:

    But if you graduated in 75, then you must be a year older than me! I graduated in 76. In Sudbury, Massachusetts, just one town over from Concord, where stood "the rude bridge that arched the flood" from Longfellow's poem. Oh, god, they NEVER let us forget that! Sudbury figured big in the start of the Revolutionary War, and just about everyone, his dog, and his mistress stayed at the Wayside Inn in my town, including George Washington, who sure got around a lot. Did you know that in Massachusetts, Patriot's Day (3rd Monday in April) is a state holiday, and that they close all 26.2 miles of road for the Boston Marathon? I used to belong to the church that was right at the starting line; a friend of mine painted it every year for many years. My church used to house the top 20 runners the night before the race so they wouldn't be harrassed by the media and fans.

    Memory dump. Sorry. It's common with us dementia patients. :jumping:
