OK, so yesterday in a letter from a friend (a letter? Oh yes, snail mail!) came a photo of me taken in 1975 - rest assured, you guys and indeed anyone else online will never ever see it, or the haircut and tanktop therein - that reminded me of how old I am (49 last week). I like to think I'm as hip as, well, quite a hip thing, but yesterday I heard myself asking Mrs Me "So who is Tulisa?"

So tell me, what age are you, and what makes you feel old?
I make mixes, some of which are quite good. My wife and I cook things too.

46. Being older than the Prime Minister (though I'm comforted by being wiser). :) And getting annoyed when people stand up in front of me at seated gigs. And dancing at any other event than a wedding. And my back. Sigh.

The first time the age thing hit me was at a Palace match, shouting 'go on son!!' at a player then realising I WAS actually old enough to be his father. :o

Clickety-click - if you know what that means, you are possibly even older than me!

I turned 40 yesterday. But I don't feel mature at all.

I know what you mean. I still read Viz and laugh uncontrollably at pictures of foreign food products called 'bum' and 'plopp'.

I've just been down to Herne Hill for physio. Yes, it's age related tendonitis. Yes, it happens to all of us in our late 40s. No, I am not impressed.

Standing in the Brixton Academy auditorium watching/listerning to Grizzly Bear last night made me realise that I was fast approaching my half century - great, great band, but I struggled with the queuing, the pushing and shoving, the standing for 3 hours and the late night! :blink:

Yeah, I'm impressed! For me these days, going to gigs necessitates taking the next day off. The last one I went to - the Tubes back in July - I got thoroughly bladdered, climbed onto a seat, tried to climb onto the stage, and fell off quite spectacularly, bruising my leg badly and getting major carpet burns on both arms. I don't remember getting home, but I do remember dying next day.

50 a few months back - had some young lippy billy hunt say "want a seat grandad" on the bus a few years back - that was a game changer!
