You know you're getting old when….


1. Your husband gets a big check in the mail, and you go on a bender PAYING BILLS. Paying your property taxes, paying your cable bill, paying both of your wireless bills motherfucking EARLY. AND YOU'RE SUPER EXCITED ABOUT THIS.

2. You decide not to pour yourself a glass of whiskey at 9:30pm on a Friday night because WHOO, that might keep you up.

3. You realize you have a crush on Tom Colicchio.

3a. You find old Daniel Day Lewis to be the cutest Daniel Day Lewis.

4. Omigod forget it, this is depressing

    1. Why do all her comments seem so insufferable? Really she's not saying anything that would cause us to be so annoyed if it were coming from someone else. But every time I read one of her comments I'm both amused and annoyed as all hell.

      I wonder if her blog readers feel the same way...

    2. it's a fairly obnoxious blog. maybe she does this to troll for readers?

      i feel old for wondering if i just used 'troll' the right way...

    1. If you must know, I spent all winter doing puzzles in my living room while watching Netflix. That qualifies me as old, I'm pretty certain.

  3. I mean, I did have to Google Image Tom Colicchio. So you might be a little old. But the important thing is that you're aging with awesomeness. Getting better with time. I think you should be dwelling on all the GREAT things about being older than you were before. For one, I'm SUPER grateful that I'm finally past those awkward years where I couldn't wipe my own ass.

    1. I had to google him too although the name sounded familiar, but then immediately knew who he was when the first pic popped up. not so sure about crushing on him though...

      (ew, I hate that I just used 'crushing'.. what do kids say nowadays??)

  5. I see nothing wrong with having a thing for Tom Colicchio or DDL, but I'm probably not very objective since I have a huge crush on Liam Neeson.

    1. I thought chicken at first. But now I am thinking... dough??

    2. I think it's raw chickens. What the HELL.

      Delete
    3. I googled it up, it is definitely some sort of animal flesh.

      Delete
    4. I had nightmares about this picture last & the raw chicken last night.

  7. All my man star crushes are at least 45. See: Billy Burke (crush spawned the same day this photo was taken at Comic-Con, when he took his shirt off 2 feet away from me and I almost had to leave the room).

  8. 1. Adulthood, it gets us all.

    2. I've realized that that huge chunk of valhrona will keep me up for hours and that wine is likely to lead to a headache the next morning.

    3. Tom Colicchio is adorable and I want to kiss his bald head. Though, sometimes he has a soul patch. This is unacceptable.

    3a. This is true with most men. I look at my husband at 25 and it does nothing for me. At 35, he's the cat's pajamas.

    4. I'm right there with you and I'm only 27!

    1. I am right there with you with the chocolate problem. I used to be able to drink and eat whatever I pleased in my younger days and be able to sleep like a little lamb with nary a peep from my digestive system. Nowadays freaking chipotle gives me a stomacheache, too much sugar or wine at night will give me insomnia, I get hangovers from increasingly smaller amounts of booze ... aging sucks.

  9. DDL: any age is the right age. Humina humina.

  10. Forget DDL, can we talk about John Hawkes?

  11. I just got my tax return. I put 95% of it into my savings account. Then spent 5% of it on anti-aging skincare products.
