Age: I remain defiant

I think Shuggy's feeling the strain though.

I resolutely cling in immaturity and youthful exhuberance. Even if I too am approaching 40...

I just do not care (kinda)...

LOL...yes, same here! I'll be 38 next year, so 40 is not that far off, but I too intend to remain immaturely defiant until the very day!

(OT, but: You're the only other person in the blogosphere that I've seen besides Shakes Sis that likes The Taking Of Pelham One, Two, Three! That movie rules. An ocean of priceless dialog!)

Kinda?
Sorry, I go by the old 'you're not getting older you're getting better'. More experiences, different attitude, expanded person. I'll go for the older woman over Hugh Hefner's stable any day.
(and why aren't you over at Rob's filling in more?)

Word. Taking of Pelham One, Two, Three is great.

Cloud brought it for me, so you know he also is in the Blogsphere as a fan.

Tom, welcome - Buffy and Angel fans can always find an open door here. Spoilered or not, I really am looking forward to getting my ass in gear to buy and watch Season 5 of Angel.

Ha ha - feeling the strain for sure. Last couple of years I've realised my own little resevoir of youthful immaturity and exhuberance hasn't slowed down the winter plummage that is taking over my hair. Not even a wee bit.

The Taking of Pelham 123 is indeed great. Heck, Quentin Tarantino clearly liked it enough to pinch the "Mr Blue" "Mr Black" etc idea for Reservoir Dogs.

I think my favourite line is Walther Matthau's "Someone down there knows how to drive a subway train. He didn't learn that watching Sesame Street."

A friend of mine is just turning 40; his father has sent him one of those nano i-Pod things. That means that the old boy still thinks of his son as 14, doesn't it?

Not necessarily! I know more 30 and 40 somethings with them than 14 year-olds...

Then again, I don't know that many 14 year-olds...

Just ignore me. (I know most folks do...)
