A 29 year old still has 20 years to look ahead to 50 even if they're drinking litres of diet coke to wash down their 450 calorie burgers and fries and catch up in years - the body is way more forgiving at that age. I'd say you're still doing pretty well.

Chip was fond of quoting the locals, in that peculiarly lilting and musical Hebridean accent: on such was, 'Och the lambs are dancing', referring to the spring-heeled frolics of very young lambs. I've seen it many times, but this is the first quarter-decent fist I've made of recording, although having Scrap yanking at the lead in my other hand, it's not as smooth as I would have liked...



Just in time for Easter coming up. That's cool.

We have this woman whom I'll call Stella, which is her name so it fits, who has this very loud sing-song voice. Everyone can hear her in the cube farm I work in.

I told a co-worker yesterday that Stella missed her calling because her sing-song cadence would be great for children's stories audio books.

My co-worker asked me if I disliked children and asked why I would want to punish them that way.

Is that the way I actually come across? The reason I answered Markus with "Don't quit your day job," was because usually a joke has to have a basis in reality to at least be a little funny - you know, "It's funny because it's true."

I'm happy to laugh at myself, in fact I think I poke fun at myself all the time on here, but I don't get the connection.

My post was a joke containing several layers of comedy.

It takes a big man to cry, but it takes a bigger man to laugh at that man.

It's true that I haven't been as consistently hilarious as I used to be. Around here, at least.
But I do still have my moments.

I'll continue to point them out.

Sounds like you're in very good shape. Not sure what it says about the average fitness levels of 25-29 year olds though.

You're the one who runs up mountains. If I'm 29 you must be 19.
