4. I'm somewhat older than you.
I manage not to feel old, mostly by adjusting my idea of what old is up a bit every year. I suppose a similar phenomenon is what led my 90+ year old grandmother to refer to our 70+ year old neighbors as a young couple. :D

6. The weirdest part is just because I went back to school.

And all the freshmen and sophmores are too young for me to date. :P As are a good portion of the people who've been there longer than that.

8. I went back last year.
I'm kinda in a funny place, much younger than the "non-traditional" (older) students, who are mostly in their 40's, but old enough that the regular students seem to think I fart dust.

21. Yeah. I'm in about the same boat.
I was talking to a (rather cute) 21 year old and I asked her if I was just getting too old to recognize music anymore, or if whatever was playing on the radio was a local band that I hadn't heard because I just moved here.

It wasn't a local band.

11. A parade!

This sounds fun, but i have a suspicion that he may just be doing this to see what you'll do for beads... be careful!

I hope you have a tasty and non-scary dinner! :D

12. I'm sure I'll post all about it.
Going anywhere with any of them is an adventure and usually results in a good lounge thread (which reminds me, I have to post about going to a bar, ikea, and a tattoo shop, in that order, with mom and stepdad last night.)

What's your birthday cake gonna be? One my earliest and most vivid vegan-cooking eye-openers was a scrumptious vegan birthday cake.

being nineteen. Amazingly enough.

If I knew I was going to live this long, I might have take better care of myself.

But yeah, I got you something nice. The catch is, you have to go to Florida, collect your hunkish friend, and the both of you have to visit casa Redstone for a few days (and by all means bring LeftySon as well), THEN you can open your present.

Deal?

19. Let's be realistic here. If YOU can't do that, even that guy who did
that cool trick with the loaves & fishes wouldn't have much of a chance.

Much less me.
