Yes, I really did use that overused – and let’s face it, crap – sales promotion statement for the headline of this post because:
1. It IS my birthday.
2. I am off on holiday for 2 weeks.
… so you don’t have to put up with ‘blog posts’ till I’m back – the ultimate present or what!
Today I am 42.
That’s 8 years off 50.
So it’s weird that I still feel – and probably act – like I’m 28, but then …
I still go out and buy mentalness like this.
I still go to concerts like this.
I still want to buy pointless rubbish like this.
I do occasionally start acting like this.
So all in all, it’s OK getting older – because whereas I once used to think it meant wearing ‘slacks’, talking about ‘the garden’, talking about wine and wearing ‘sensible shoes’ … it means none of those things, it just means you have the confidence to not really give a fuck about what others think of you and you can spend your time and focus on what interests, intrigues, excites and fulfills you which is why I’m glad it’s my birthday today, even if I’m not going to get the sort of presents that used to make 12th June, truly stellar!
Have fun during the period of blog bollocks freedom, because like Arnie, I’ll be back.
PS: Special birthday hugs and kisses to the wife & Paul – whose birthdays are on June 15th and 16th respectively. I’m so glad I’ll be able to spend it with you, even if that’s possibly the worst present you could think of getting from me.
