Time Does Fly

It super flies... Well, just yesterday was I reading this post by Amanda Palmer and once again I located some words that I could connect a great deal. It is weird and feels weird the fact the I now can download Dead Kennedys and Toy Dolls entire discography without leaving my place. Hubby was just saying that a couple of minutes ago while I was reading Amanda's post on wrinkling. Before internet came along, we had to order CDs or Long Plays through magazine catalogs. Then, we'd make zillions of K7 copies and give out to friends. Besides, It was almost impossible to get those band's merchandise too. Therefore, we used to come up with crafty band T-shirts, pins, or even stickers.

I am aware that Amanda vented on 'beauty loss' that shows up attached to the aging fact and he, Roberto, was retrieving how hard it was to get underground music and all the extras such as stickers, shirts, and taped concerts prior internet. I myself add these two issues and form only one subject: we are all a bunch of BIG OLD THIRTIES and we shouldn't be prouder of that. Now, right at this fine moment, here I am typing on a digital diary while my Husband is sitting at the other corner playing Counter Strike and listening to Jello Biafra. And Amanda? She's probably somewhere else up in Europe eating some pasta and checking out teenagers having fun on the streets.

I can't desguise that aging is a hell of an issue to me. Although, I get really really scared when the idea of having babies crosses my mind. Having babies would validate my personal aging process. I do not feel ready at all, even though I am 31 already. Yeah! I am a 31-year-old "healthy" lady that could make a good mother. Iada, iada, iada... Today's world is too screwed up to add more human beings on it... Don't know... really... I am very doubtful on that matter. And besides that, would I be able to parent well after all? Everyone says that women naturally take over this thing but it is pretty uncertain, mysterious, and creepy though. I can't even say where all this scary feeling comes from anyway... Maybe it is coming from Hubby's speakers... LOL

You know you're getting old... We all are and there is nothing better than laughter to get over the wrinklish faces we see on our pictures. I am turning into a senior and I am so sure that there won't ever be such a sexy lady like me... LOL that is how I sense my elderly figure: an old woman wearing mini-skirt, showing off thousands of 'deformed' tattoos, riding on a Harley Davidson, and her hair up dyed in several funky colors.

Here's a list to check and see if you're getting too old:

1. You and your teeth don't sleep together.
2. You try to straighten out the wrinkles in your socks and discover you aren't wearing any.
3. At the breakfast table you hear snap, crackle, pop and you're not eating cereal.
4. Your back goes out but you stay home.
5. When you wake up looking like your driver's license picture.
6. It takes two tries to get up from the couch.
7. When your idea of a night out is sitting on the patio.
8. When happy hour is a nap.
9. When you're on vacation and your ENERGY runs out before your money does.
10. When you say something to your kids that your mother said to You, and you always hated it.
11. When all you want for your birthday is to not be reminded of your age.
12. When you step off a curb and look down one more time to make sure the street is still there.
13. Your idea of weight lifting is standing up.
14. It takes longer to rest than it did to get tired.
15. Your memory is shorter and your complaining lasts longer.
16. Your address book has mostly names that start with Dr.
17. You sit in a rocking chair and can't get it going.
18. The pharmacist has become your new best friend.
19. Getting "lucky" means you found your car in the parking lot.
20. The twinkle in your eye is merely a reflection from the sun on your bifocals.
21. It takes twice as long - to look half as good.
22. Everything hurts, and what doesn't hurt - doesn't work.
23. You look for your glasses for half an hour and they were on your head the whole time.
24. You sink your teeth into a steak and they stay there.
25. You give up all your bad habits and still don't feel good.
26. You have more patience, but it is actually that you just don't care anymore.
27. You finally get your head together and your body starts falling apart.
28. You wonder how you could be over the hill when you don't even remember being on top of it.

I got this list from this site: http://www.electricscotland.com/. The reason that has made me log on this site is that I pretty much dream of visiting Scotland someday and... I was wondering... Does that dream make me look old too? Ha!

Well... coming back from the supermarket this afternoon (grocery shopping on a Sunday is definitely oldies' fun... DO I CARE? Guess not). So, as I was saying, while coming back from the supermarket I could notice that we aren't that old yet. We had in our shopping kart 3 packs of cookies, 1 Dulce de Leche, 2 bottles of cheap Cabernet wine, 12 cans of beer, 9 packs of 3 condoms each, a pocketbook copy of Kafka's 'The Metamorphosis', and a pot of coffee ice cream. That was our grocery for the week...

Yeah, we are definitely not old yet.

  1. No, you are not old, not with that cart of goodies! Ha, you are so much fun to read.

    I hate when I say ridiculous to my daughter in the same way my mom said it to me. Don't be ridiculous!, but darn if it doesn't come out of my mouth anyway.
