This is a question Evidence that you're getting old

Youthful as I am, I realised yesterday that I no-longer know, or care, who is #1 in the charts. Furthermore, it takes all day to get rid of a hangover and I now seem to have a profound interest in gardening. Worst is that I now use words like 'furthermore'.

What makes you think that you are getting old?

Look on the positive side
Stop moaning !!! I turned 50 this year (now THAT is old compared to some of you young shavers - ha ! 28) but these are the upsides of getting old:

I no-longer know, or care, who is #1 in the charts (actually, I never did).
Mortgage is as nothing now (ends anyway in 4, yes 4, yrs).
Kids old enough to f*** off and make their own mistakes (and who knows, the family may grow and the joy that it might bring).
I don't care what anyone thinks about me anymore (so keep your sarcastic comments to yourselves guys).
I smoke, enjoy it, and I don't give a s**t what the fascists think.
Almost everything has improved - hundreds of tv channels, p.c.s, dvds, the whole entertainment industry in fact (I don't like hip-hop/britney/busted and all that cr*p, but defend to the death your right to listen to that sort of sh*te).
I can wallow in nostalgia - IF I want to (sometimes I do, sometimes I don't).
Married for 26 years and I still love her (and she me - I think).
I can play poker or UT2004 online.
I can browse b3ta and enjoy the humour and the chat (last week's comp on adding words to film titles was brilliant).
I can use as many brackets as I like, and I don't care about that either.

That's the evidence for me that I'm getting old - freedom

To quote Peter Hammill (who ??) "I'll never find a better time, to be alive than now"

p.s. - There are some who know me who would say "Wha ???" to me being positive ! hahahahaha
p.p.s. And I still don't do gardening, whatever that is
