Tie me up and tie me down...
Whatever you want, I'll give it to you...

I wish I was a radio song, the one that you turned up...

Here's a snippet of a conversation Katie and I had with a gym goer last night...

Gym Goer (GG): God I remember when I was younger and could do all these exercises without a problem.

Me: Enjoy it while you can, right?

GG: You bet. [doing bad Cranky Old Guy voice] Back when I was your age. [normal voice] Ummm, what are you two, like 21 or 22?

Me: Heh heh. 32 in December.

Katie: 29.

GG: You've gotta be kidding me. I thought you were both still college students. You must really take care of yourselves. Just wait til you two get to my age.

Me: You're now our favorite gym member.

Never underestimate the power of a compliment. As offhanded as it may have been.

I guess now is as good a time as any to start the official countdown to my birthday. Yeah, I'm pretty bad at this whole Birthday Self Promotion thing. I really need to take lessons from Sandra, Alissa, Karl, and Chase. I am but a mere 20 days away from my 32nd birthday. And I know it's ballsy to say, but I do accept gifts (anyone in my family who is reading this -- all two of you -- that is looking for a birthday or Christmas list from me can refer to my Amazon Wishlist as well - oh hell, I'll even put it in the sidebar to make life easier)!

The single greatest post title you've ever used. Greatest ever. Period.

You young whipper-snapper, you.

Birthday presents 'eh? ::scratches chin:: I may have to think about this one.

sandra

ms. sizzle

Hap-pre birthday!!

Props on the good lyrics tie in as well.

Scott, I figured you might like it. And if ever there was a way to lure you out of lurkerdom, using PJ lyrics would be the way to do it.

Dustin, it never hurts to ask. Heh.

Sandra, I learn from the best.

Sizzle, it was only a matter of time.

frances, a PJ fan, eh?

Bre

There is NOTHING wrong with hinting at gifts (says the girl who had her christmas list done in October)!!

kapgar

Bre, sad thing is we usually have all our Christmas shopping done in October. We haven't even started this year.

Can I get in on the BSP cross-promotion? Mine's the 7th, and hey! I'll be 32, also! Plus, um, 22 ...

kapgar

Any December BSPCP is welcome here!

Karl

Woo hoo! Another birthday to celebrate. Hopefully you get tons of gifts. I made out pretty darned good on mine.

kapgar

Happy to have contributed to it, even if it was in a rather snarky way. ;-)
