Isn't she sweet! There goes that inheritance. :lol:

I was so stunned and flattered when my grand niece saw a pic of me from 20 years ago and pointed and said "hey, that's Auntie!"....I gave her my car. (she is 6)

Yes, she is sweet! And helped me clean yesterday...she needed more money to spend at the beach next week. tongue.gif

Out of the mouths of babes...your grand niece must be a sweetie, too. laugh.gif

I haven't seen any older folks pipe in yet.

(we're the young'ns ....right?? unsure.gif )

When I hit 40, I decided to start counting backwards, so.... I'm 25.

I'll take the honors at 68. Ooops, can't remember anything else. Something you young'ns can look forward to. :)

I've recently turned 30. Given than in my home country that's the highest grade you can get in college, I just say I've reached near perfection. From next year on, I'll just say 30 cum laude ;) People usually think I am 22 or so, though. And I personally feel like I'm still that age.

For me...age is truly just a number.

When I turned 47 last May - I felt like a very ill 87 year old.

As 48 approaches - I'm feeling better than I did at 18.

Oh and I've always looked younger than I am - which has been both an advantage and disadvantage at different times. Now, I must say I am very pleased that I look much younger than many of my friends ;) Hubby is only two years older than me and folks think he is more like ten -- he hates it -- I love it.

Hi

I'm 51 (had to work it out from date of birth as I make a point of not remembering) but I'm sure there is some mistake with it as I have never felt my age.

Kind of got stuck in 20's/30's and haven't moved on in my mind.

I mean, 51 ?????????????? that can't be right :ph34r: !

I am roughly 15.5 stone, hard to tell precisely, the scale is broke! Made kind of a groaning sound last time I used it.

That's about 215 lbs.

6'1" or 185 CM

55 solar orbits for the Earth since I was spewed forth.

Four-eyed or wear glasses if you are not a grade schooler.

Haley's comet has passed us twice since I was breathing air, once on the way in and once on the way out.

I have 3 living sisters and two living brothers.

And a cat, Muffin. Meow! :)

After my mom turned 40, she always told people she was celebrating the anniversary of her 39th birthday.

I just celebrated the 9th anniversary of my 39th birthday.

Perhaps I'll switch to dog years . . . I'm almost 7.

I think along the same lines as your mom. I celebrate anniversaries too. In May I will be celebrating the 19th anniversary of my 29th birthday!

Oh my goodness, I've lost track of my age! I first put 20th anniversary then thought, no that makes me going on 49. Put in 18th, and that makes me turning 47.

LOL then I actually had to count the decades then use my fingers to add the additional years from my birth year to figure out what my age actually is! How sad is that? LOL

I've had this exact conversation with myself - hubby has too and he doesn't have celi brain fog to blame ;)

Just curious about the average age of the c.com users.

 

61 and proudly wearing purple!!! My DH is 11 years younger. Do I get to subtract that from my age since he's keeping alive and young?

Loweee!!! I didn't know you were a cougar! ;)

 

Just turned 54 and proud of it. I have no problem telling my age, especially at work (high school). Gotta keep those high school boys in line. I was told by one recently that I look like a student (Just a little bragging, but at my age, I'm entitled) :P

    • Here's another thing.  Feeling deprived?  Order two of the same item.  I was hungry by the time dinner arrived! 
    • The doctors just made me feel like I was crazy because they did not have a clue of what was wrong with me. I did a stool test (positive) and I did a genes test (positive for two gluten sensitive genes, one in each chromosome).  Blood test are not so foolproof, if you read the comments/experiences in such topic you will see the problems. Biopsy can give a false negative if taken from an undamaged area. If you have medical problems that go away once on a gluten free diet then gluten is the problem. The medical establishment profit from managing your medical problems and big pharma makes money by pushing pills so we need to be careful because they won't benefit if a gluten-free diet solve your problems. Since I started a Gluten free diet I have been free of the following: (all related to Celiac)  Irregularity, Intestinal noise, Irregular stool, Tooth enamel defects, Rash in upper arms, Abdominal swelling, depression, fatigue, irritability, lactose intolerance, 
      loss of memory, dandruff, uncontrollable bladder, suicidal thoughts, unable to sleep, Canker sores/ Mouth ulcers, high blood pressure, and probably others that I did not realize. I was at the end of my rope, thanks to Google and the people that are able to talk about this I was able to get my life back. I am passionate about this because I know how bad its can get. 
    • Well, I have never cruised on Carnival, but I am sure they can accommodate you.  I assume that you have already alerted them that you require gluten free meals.  If not, please contact Carnival immediately. Here are my own tips.  Some folks eat off the buffet line, but not me or hubby except for coffee/drinks and baked potatoes (jacketed) and fruit that we wash in the restroom (people touch everything!)  Okay, I am OCD, but my last glutening which occurred the previous summer made me sick for three months (GI tested my antibodies to prove it).   When we board, I go to the buffet restaurant ASAP and ask to speak to the Head Waiter (they are usually there greeting customers and often trying to up sell to specialty restaurants.   Let them know you have celiac disease and must be gluten free.  They may try to tell you that each dish is clearly marked gluten free, but really?  Who's to say that some other passenger is not going to switch spoons (or I have seen passengers wandering around with serving spoons...I kid you not!  The staff usually will  go downstairs and fetch a gluten free meal for me from the main dining room's kitchen as there is usually a dedicated area for allergies.  We have to wait up to 20 minutes or so but it is worth it.  Starving?  Get a baked potato wrapped in foil until your gluten-free meal arrives.  Now, do not do this every single time.  Those folks have to go down several levels to fetch food and you don't want to be a pain.  But if the main dining area is closed, they need to make an effort to keep you safe.  On our last cruise, we were advised not to eat anywhere but the main dining room and that included room service (they are not trained to handled allergies).  My headwaiters have sent goodies (prepackaged gluten free rolls and cookies for us to keep in our room.  We can always grab whole fruit (I wash it first) to snack on.  I bring gluten-free non-perishable items with me to eat while at port in case we can't find anything (which can be often).  Again, when we get back to our ship, we contact our headwaiter and he/she can prepare some snacks until we have dinner.   Be grateful and not picky.   We eat all meals in the dining room (or at least as much as possible).  Our headwaiter had a few other celiacs on our cruise this summer, so they prepared some gluten-free waffles, etc. for our breakfast!  What a treat!  At breakfast, we'd have different waiters, so our headwaiter would always instruct our waiters each and every time!  They even let me tour the kitchen and showed me the allergy section.   The only time I did not feel safe was at the buffet.  We once ordered gluten-free pizza and I realized (I watched) that that restaurant didn't really have the gluten-free thing down), do I called him on it.  Got the manager etc.  So, be careful.  Other cruises made us frozen Udi"s which was just fine with us.  They covered it up in foil so that we would not get any cross contamination from their pizza oven. So, have fun!   Tipping?  We prepaid our gratuities, but we gave our headwaiter an extra $200.00 for his time.  For us, it was well worth the service and safety of our food.  It does not hurt to slip some of the tip ahead of time (like after your first meal!)   Oh, I checked your ship.  You must eat in the diningroom if you have special dietary needs.
