Orc

I've got to stop reading internet forums. I recall ten years ago when we celebrated the 30th anniversary of Star Wars. A co-worker told me she really enjoyed it as a kid. I said, yeah, I was in college when Star Wars came out. She said, oh, she never saw it in a theater. She watched it on DVD. As a kid.

It's not getting any better. Today I saw someone say that Orcs gave them nightmares when he was a kid. What? The Lord of the Rings movies didn't even start until 2001. That was …16 years ago. Huh. I guess I am officially elderly.

You're a young whippersnapper. My 79th is in 15 days.

I would have never guessed it, Ken. I just assumed you were about my age.

Thanks, Miss C ... I was feeling pretty good for a 65 year-old, but now I feel like I ought to relocate to the Olduvai Gorge. Sigh.

Don't hurry, 72 kinda sucks.

You will not stop reading internet forums because you get too many great ideas for blog posts there and you're not thinking of stopping that right? Right? My degenerating knees confirm one thing - it's not that you're only as old as you feel - you're only as old as you think. When confronted with these situations, just smile benignly and think "youth is wasted on the wrong people." :)

Five days and counting to 60. . .
