now you're older still

today is my 30th birthday. please read the following TMBG's lyrics*. they will illuminate how the passage of time works.


Older


You're older than you've ever been
And now you're even older
And now you're even older
And now you're even older
You're older than you've ever been
And now you're even older
And now you're older still

Time is marching on
And time is still marching on

This day will soon be at an end
And now it's even sooner
And now it's even sooner
And now it's even sooner
This day will soon be at an end
And now it's even sooner
And now it's sooner still

You're older than you've ever been
And now you're even older
And now you're even older
And now you're even older
You're older than you've ever been
And now you're even older
And now you're older still

* it is my birthday. that is why i did not reproduce the lyrics to "it's not my birthday." don't be silly, people.

truth be told, i like to sing 'it's not my birthday' to myself on my birthday. what other day of the year is more inappropriately appropriate?

happy birthday!

Happy birthday! Uh, I thought it was on Tuesday. Are you coming to karaoke tonight?

happy birthday dor,
have a good time while not engaging in any especially dangerous behavior. i remember leaving my teens and that was very sad. then leaving my 20's and thinking "i am no longer young." but now that i'm in my late 30's i choose to think that people in their 60's or 70's might think that i am but a spring chicken. but yes, it gets more pervy when you flirt with people who are in a whole different decade than you. not that i would ever flirt with anyone of course, but one has to keep up with these things in one's mind.

anyway have good clean, safe fun,
joe

henry: what you sing to yourself on your birthday is your own damn business! gah! what i usually sing to myself is weird al's happy birthday song. because of the part about eating a lot of broccoli and drinking a lot of beer. wha?

rws: last week, i had NO CLUE what day was what. i thought my birthday was thursday for a while. then tuesday. never wednesday, the day it is. anyway, i won't be at karaoke. sorry.

joe: according to some children i know, i look 21. so i still won't be a perv when i am hitting on the youngsters! at least, i won't look like a perv.

Obviously, it is more important not to LOOK like a perv. My ex-boyfriend James, who at 18 looked exactly like David Hyde Pierce at 37, used to get very worked up about how "bad" it looked for him to hit on women his own age.

I'm sorry I won't see you at karaoke. But next time!

Happy Birthday. Remember, 30 is the new 20 . . . or something like that.

dorotha! i'm sorry i missed your birthday, i hope it was a good day. 30 really is the new 20, so don't feel bad. on the other hand, my favorite getting older song is by the clean. it goes:

you're getting older, you're getting older,
and you don't know what, you don't know what to do
why don't you do yourself in
why don't you do yourself in


it's a great song, but bad advice.
