i am officially middle aged from today, now what?

the good news, it is my birthday, yay.
th e bad news, i am now 35, officially classed as middle aged.

i fear that i will not like this middle aged lark, i have just finished playing call of duty 4 on the ps3, while wearing my 'the goonies' t shirt,

what am i to expect now then? do my pubes suddenly become grey? does my hair start to fall out? do i have to give up the xbox and ps3 for more relaxing book reading and cribbage?

i sensed that it was creaping up on me, each christmas and birthday for the last 3 years my presents have been geting more sensible, slippers, dressing gown, smelly stuff.......

does anyone have any tips on what they did when that time came around? did you just give up? or did you fight it tooth and nail and stay 34 for 5 years?

help, im scared!!!!

Look mate your not even 40 yet - just wait till then before your midlife crisis!

They used to say life begins at 40! but now 50 is the new 40 so stop worrying

but if you want to give up the xbox or ps3 pass them over here, and judging by your user name you may be quite close to me :-)

35?!?

Oh, it's a long, slippery downhill slide from now on, mate.

Still, at least young people will stand up so you can sit down on the bus, pregnant ladies will offer you their seat on the Underground, & you can start all sentences with "I remember when...":-D

best to think of nothing but acting half your age, if you worry about getting old, you will get old before your time, keep buying the ps3 games.. even though the 360 is a better I am over 10 yrs older than you and have been hammering the orange box on my 360 .. fear not life is for the living we are a long time dead :-D

Happy Birthday.
You really are as young as you feel. When you look in the mirror, ignore the hair that is disappearing from the top of your head only to strangely appear in your ears and nostrils.
The good bit is when you walk through the supermarkets, you can growl at the kids and mutter at the women blocking your way and they all retreat to one side. When you ring companies up, start by giving your age as this will excuse the behaviour that follows.
Life is great. :-D

[FONT=Arial][SIZE=2][COLOR=black]Surely now that the population is ageing, you're not middle aged for at least another few years. Is that a comfort or will it just be hanging over you all that time?:-D[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]

thanks for the birthday wishes, the pictures certainly raised my heart rate ( obviously not the rolling stones one, although it make me chuckle), although im not sure if that is good news for us people of a certain age.

unfortunately i already growl at kids and mutter at women who block my way, infact i have been doing that for a long while, i cant be the only one who finds it ultra annoying when ( and it tends to be women) shoppers randomly deserting their shopping trolley in the middle of an isle while they look at something, or the shopper who is walking so slowly infront of you that you are almost on top of them because everyone behind you is walking at a normal pace, and then they randomly just stop, right there, in the middle of an isle, by no products, they just stop dead, causing you to knock into them, they then look at you and tut.

shamefully i have an xbox elite as well as the ps3, i also hold my hands up to having a nintendo ds, i put all that down to being a bloke and doing blokey things, even though the other half frowns on each and every purchase and states " we could have got the bathroom done" when i proudly brought home the ps3.

i still think i am 20, but i have witnessed this sort of denial in others and sadly for me, now, i found it amusing, this was obviously because i WAS 20!!

currently i am looking for discount coupons for grecian 2000, nostril hair clippers, a tweed jacket with leather elbow pads, leather sandals and some comfy slippers.

Speaking as a 42 year old, can I just offer this little nugget of wisdom that I try to live by:

Growing old is compulsory. Growing up is optional.

Now there's a point....it wouldn't be your MIDDLE age if you drank & whor'd your way through the next 10 years & died fashionably young!?!?!


(Apologies to Mrs Brum for putting this idea into the OLD man's head)

Get yourself a DS Lite with Brain Training, ditch the Xbox and PS3 and start playing Wii Sports only.

And play the crosswords and sudoku games in the newspapers.

"Growing old is compulsory. Growing up is optional."

now that could sum me up to a tee.

hookers and beer? hmmm sounds like a saturday afternoon down the rugby, although if it were prostitutes, im araid im getting to tiight fisted ( oooeeerrr) to part with any more money for sex, i have a mrs after all, that costs me the best part of my months pay.

the worst thing is, at aged 19 and 20, they were the best years of my life, young free and single, i remember when i though hang overs were made up by old people as i would drink like a mofo and the next morning wake up right as rain, although wonder who the hell the girl was in bed beside me.

and as for brain training? i cant get past a b +, 1589 is my highest score. it will only go down from there.

to make myself feel young again i forced the family to watch the goonies earlier on, my 4 year old son had to be distracted 4 or 5 times as i forgot about the hanging scene at the beginning and the word sh1t being used.
( see i told you i was getting old)

Would you recommend 'The Goonies' as a good film, I've never seen it. All I know is that its a bunch of kids that find treasure near a train station. Anyway, fink I should watch it?
