I think we should all ADD five years to our age ... that way people's reactions will be, "WOW! You look so much younger!" rather than subtracting 5 years and having them say, "WOW! I thought you were older than that!"

I've decided I can't be older than my partner so if I'm feeling a little decrepit, I just ditch the current old fogie and find a younger model.

However, I am not fully irate . . . . . . .

Susie's Moderate Ire = good name for a band where the guy guitarist & drummer wear eyeshadow. :ph34r:

Susie, I write left-handed, everything else is generally right-handed ...

And neither mentions the tres importante datapoint for guys - throw righty?

EVERYone's played softball at some point, right? Bats left, throws right?

I've heard of "second banana", but "second rooster"? Have I been away that long? <_<:P

GAH!!. . . . . after hitting I realized "additional" would've been more accurate.

<curse that 'writing in verbal voice'!> :blink:

But "embarrassingly dark" will go fantabulously with the orange skin that you so desire.

And it keeps the premature halloweenification (halloweeniness?) from flatlining!!

(one local groc store already cobwebbed up the registers last wkend! Boooooooooooooo)

. .. . I think he comes in my closet and in my drawers . . .

OMG yipes! . . . now that Richard presented an alternate reading . .. . . . .uhhhhhhhh yeeaaaaaaaahhhhhhhh you might want to set up a teddybearcam and contact a network tv 'news magazine' show. They love this stuff.

"over 40" is a state of mind. changes depending on the day

Being as close to 50 as 40 is nothing short of shocking.

I figure at worst I'm allowed to pick up where I left off pre-celiac. :lol: So, consider me 36 now, thank you. :)

And you're living proof of that!

:lol:

Susie's planting wild strawberries today!! Yum!

And, of course, LMAO!! @ the "No Bell Piece Prize but they also awarded him the Pulletsurprise as well" segment of today's show.

Richard, best of luck trying to catch up on months' worth, I can't believe the time it just took me after missing a few HOURS!

Didn't someone ask if we were wearing our bells? "Pbbbbt!" I say! "Not any MORE!"

bats right, throws right, tennis racket - right, and would definitely slug someone, if required, with right. ;)

the wild strawberries - ornamental only, methinks.

You could be like my grandmother ... she's been 39 since before I was born. :)

I have a friend whose husband sent her "Happy 40th" and "Over the Hill" balloons at work on her 39th birthday. So no one would believe her when she tried to tell them she was only 39. And to clarify, since we ARE talking about a guy, he did actually know it was her 39th birthday.

I'm 43 . . . I don't have a problem telling people, it's just sometimes I have to stop and do the math to figure out how old I am because I can't remember. :blink::lol:

Right, bat and throw.

The other day I was at the gym lifting weights. A new, fancy club opened in our town, so the community center wasn't very crowded, just this guy and I were in there, so we started chatting about it being so deserted.

Anyway, I mentioned how odd it was that there was not a bench for bench pressing, and he said that at his age he got credit just for being there ... ends up, he is 4 years younger than I!! :lol: I guess I got extra credit for being older and SICK and being there! :P

Oh u did NOT miss the 'coq au ding' story miss dingy!! in-con-THEEV-able!

(meant to quote but it somehow didn't make it through my manual stacking-quote method)

. . . and would definitely slug someone, if required, with right. ;)

You make it sound hypothetical !!

Surely at LEAST a good slap or 2 is in your past!! lmao :lol:

Dingy, signing out. Drank two Redbridges whilst gardening, . . .

Mmmmmmmmmmm I'm actually still thrilled at the very thought of a good beer being available for the "during"s (aka whilsts :) ) and "after"s.

. . . So no one would believe her when she tried to tell them she was only 39.

:lol:

I guess I got extra credit for being older and SICK and being there! :P

Man, if there is a true Grand Poobah anywhere, it is Richard. Get him onto that American Poobah hat site, for this man needs a crown! :D

ROFL Janet!

. . . hmmm interesting.

Hey Tom, you're right. That works great. :lol:

:lol: !!

Jin, thank you for welcoming me to Rachelville. However, I am here only briefly. My post was merely an overflow from the Silly's thread. I needed to post a ". . . . hmmmmm interesting" after one of Tom's post. . . .

I was hoping to slip in and out without being noticed . . . .

But Jin's keen eye (aye!) is too attentive for that!

:lol:

Hey Tom, you're right. That works great. :lol:

Hehehehe . . . Were you surprised to see me? To fill everyone in, I used Tom's "how to increase your post count" suggestion against him on the OMG thread. Hehehe.

:lol: darn tootin' ya did!

So did you know that from the beginning or did you just figure it out?

I have an answering machine in my car. It says, "I'm home now, but leave a message and I'll call back when I'm out".

:huh::D

Emily, I'm now picturing your car with an answering machine, coffee pot, ficus plant, and a minifridge. :lol:

Time to get back to work. We have guests coming in 2 1/2 hours and I've got probably 2 hours of food prep and 3 hours of cleaning . . . hmmm, doing the math . . . I don't think that's gonna work.

I believe the term I'm suppose to use now is

Harumpffff!!!!

Um, Tom, only hit a man once (other than little brother - poor sod :ph34r: ) when I was about 30, it was my boyfriend at the time, and he THREW A DEAD DRAGONFLY ON ME :angry: , it was huge, and I am equally terrified of the dead insects, so I slugged him in the arm. A hard right. ;)

ohhhhhhhhhhhhh my back...............it's couch day with heating pad for Dingy. but the garden looks lovely. :lol:

HALLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO SILLIES!!!!!!!!!

Once again . . . that sounds like I'm a stalker. I did notice that whenever I came to read this thread, you seemed to be here at the same time. I didn't notice on the other threads . . . but I read up in a lot of them to procrastinate and avoid doing the mundane housework and errands - like right now when I have guests coming in . . . . Aaaaagggg . . . an hour!!!

OH!!! ROFL!! :lol:

P.P.P.P.S. Did I hear we have a reader not neighborly enough to say hello? Awww, the door's always open!

I read this and I thought, Oh sh@#!, I've been caught evesdropping (all one word?). Then somebody responded (Donna, I think) and I laughed at myself and thought nobody noticed me lurking in the shadows :ph34r: . . . I was off the hook. :D

Back to work . . . the clock is ticking . . . insert panic emoticon here.

Adam has all these old 45's so he bought a record player ... one day I asked the kids what they were doing because they had been playing quietly in the basement for so long ... they said they were playing with those black disc things, what are they called?! :o
