Birthdays, Schmirthdays! No really, its MY birthday!!
Posted Dec 27 2009 10:01pm
Hey hey, look at me, I'm finally 40 years old.
I remember when my mom turned 40 and it seemed SOOO old. Is it just me or is 40 the new 20?
Eh, I'm not that worried about turning 40. When I registered for triathlons this past year, I had to register my age as of the end of 2009. So, technically or athletically, I've already been categorized as 40 all year. Maybe that means that during next year's triathlons, I should athletically be the same as I was this past year since I haven't aged...
I have no coherent train of thought today. I didn't sleep all that well last night and decided to stay offline for much of this past weekend. It felt good to give my brain a break.
My brain doesn't stop.
Damn it to hell.
And since my brain is nothing but sleep deprived mush, I thought I'd let all the famous people do the deep thinking for me with some cool quotes at the end of this blog post.
Oh and since I'm 40 and because this is my blog and its all about me...ME... ME... here's me asking for birthday wishes.
Because having a birthday around the holidays bites the big one.
Hope ya'll had a nice holiday break.
