Okay, so this isn't really a gender specific imponderable, but nevertheless.

So I just watched the U2 "Zoo TV Live from Sydney" DVD that come out Tuesday, and I started thinking. I started getting into U2 in 1998, as most of their career has happened before I really was old enough to be a fan (hopefully they'll keep going for a while though, and change that).

Anyways, I was thinking about when I started listening to them and I was like "wow, that was 8 years ago. I'm old" I'm only 22, but I get those "that was so long ago, but it doesn't seem like it" moments. Especially being a senior on campus now, and all these young freshmen are wandering about and I feel like the old man on campus.

I guess I'm not really going anywhere with this, but I thought it would be interesting to hear a couple "I felt really old this one time when..." stories that just sort of illustrate any generation gap or some such. Kids these days with their hula-hoops and Pac-Man video games...

Evening, JP!
I've got one for you. You've heard of the singer called Madonna, right (yes, that's sarcasm )...well, when her first album came out, I was in Middle School. And every now and then, I get to hear "Borderline" on the radio followed by "Now there's an oldie!" That, and when they started playing Guns n Roses on the Classic rock stations...

Yeah, I've listened to classic rock for most my life so I've always known it as "classic." I'm sure my time will come though when my "modern" music is considered old.

I've noticed a gap with my peers in actors too. Sometimes I'll mention a movie with Marlon Brando or Steve McQueen and they'll be like "who?" I think a lot of my generation will dismiss a movie automatically if it was made prior to the Reagan administration...or heaven forbid it's in black and white!

LOL! I am the same Tristan - I was listening to my favourite radio showthis morning and someone mentioned the Thompson Twins - and the younger dj said 'who the hell are the Thompson Twins?" which is sad because I a) loved the band and went to see them in concert in the 80s... and b) I loved the Tin Tin graphic books so I knew where it originated from...

I'm getting old... and I'm going to a special hell...

... and I feel your pain JPStar... I love U2 but I also remember when they first hit the airwaves... just like Madonna! (& I have her on vinyl too) I love the old movies - my Dad made sure I had a good, well rounded education in that respect... I really mourn the passing of those actors who will always be an amazing presence on film but who have gone from us now... Ahhhh... James Stewart in Harvey - don't you just want to take him home and... um - but I digress...

... or in the words of Derek Zoolander "I'm pretty sure there's more to life than being really really goodlooking... and I plan to find out what it is..." (sorry - watching a DVD while I type this...)

Explaining to my little sister that the band Green Day existed before the album American Idiot did it for me.

Also, massive sustainment of injuries. Everytime it's cold, or it's gonna rain, or sometimes just on a bad day, my joints crack and dislocate at random. I feel about 60 when that crap starts happening.

jpstargazer,
I know exactly what you are saying, but it tickles me to hear a 22 year old say, "I'm old." That's makes me feel really old.

I started to feel old when the rock groups of my youth were played as elevator music. Also when I found out that young children don't know what a record or album is. I don't think I'll list any more. It's starting to make me feel OLD.

Morning all imponderers!
The site crashed on me before I could say goodnight. I was sad.
Oddly, I had a "Wow, that was so long ago!" moment last night when I flipped on the TV and saw Agent Mulder. Gods, I loved that show in the way back when. I knew so much trivia I scared people. I could spot an episode within seconds, I knew the titles and writers and plots of the first four seasons like I knew mine own name. I was an obsessed X-phile of the highest order.
Then it 'self-destructed into utter nonsense' as one reviewer said, and I stopped watching. Somewhere in season six, I just got pissed off. I never saw how that damn series ended and I still don't want to that badly.
I didn't think it had been that long ago that I stopped watching, but I couldn't spot this episode right away. I couldn't remember what happened when I did place the title. And I realized I was in high school the last time I watched an episode of the X-files. Early high school. It was more than five years ago!
Who knows where the time goes?
The early episodes are still really good. I got so mad about it that I forgot why I loved it so much. Maybe I should watch those original Star Wars movies again.

As someone who has now entered another stat bracket age-wise, I can relate to this thread.

I am going to be working with someone conceivably young enough to be my son as of next week. THAT makes me feel old.

The fact that it is twenty-five years since Indiana Jones...

Vinyl. Videos. Queueing for a payphone at college, in a world without mobiles. Being the only one on my corridor with a word-processor. Hand-written essays.

I've scared myself now.

Positive things; In my lifetime, 'foreign' food has become more widely available outside the big cities. The Internet.

Suffering from champagne at the moment. Going to lie down quietly until i have to go to work...

I got really depressed about my age a couple of years ago. For all non Brits I should explain that all students can get about 1/3 off railfare if they own a 'Young Person's Railcard'. I held on by the skin of my teeth but they stop giving you them after 25 (or 26 if you cheat!)

Yes, it is true, I am officially no longer a Young Person.

I feel old because I'm cantankerous, sarcastic, and have th'Alzhimers...

Well, actually, only the first two. The third will come in about fourty years, and only if the diabetes doesn't get me first.

Emma: I've heard way too many stories like that, myself. More than I can count on both hands, which is waaaaay too many, although only one ended with a corpse. It's part of the reason I gave my advice. Don't put all your money on the miraculous change. The only change which can be virtually guaranteed is the downhill slide.
People need to want to improve, in order to achieve anything. This leach obviously, and blatantly, does not, which leads my back to the first line of advice I gave LA, being: Get out now.

LA:
Seriously. I see this bastard in prison or a psych ward in the next ten years. He's starting to sound like a extraclinical sociopath, from the way you tell it. Just be very careful. Even if he does agree to the counciling, it's only because you have a figurative gun to his head, the gun being his progeny. I can't stress enough that you have to be on your guard around him. He sounds like the guy I heard of who put out cigarettes on a woman's legs on a regular basis. And no, she didn't enjoy it in the slightest.

Man, I need to get the hell off of this island.

Link to resources for better understanding the term sociopath: http://www.geocities.com/lycium7/psychopathy.html
If this is him, then you really do need to get away from him.

On a (maybe) lighter note, there has been some recent research to indicate that Alzhimer's might in fact be linked to diabetes. There is a theory (only a theory) that it is in fact type three diabetes. The brain makes insulin, and it appears that when Alzhimer's takes hold, that insulin production stops.

This is why I have cut refined sugar out of my diet.

I'll be 29 next February, and it scares me. It's waaay too close to 30. I thought I'd be a grown up by thirty! You know, have a house and a long term boyfriend/fiancee, an established career, that kind of thing. Unless I have a very busy year next year I think I'll be behind schedule!

I mean, if I'm almost thirty shouldn't I be... I don't know... mature or something?

Morning, Everyone

Ahh..a blessed day in Maryland - my computer network is down, no work can be done...only internet access available. Sucks to be me.

Flashback, mid 80's- Girlfriends and I went to Merriwether Post Pavillion (outdoor venue) to see our favorite girl band, the Go-Go's. And there's this freaky girl opening for them. Like a train wreck, we couldn't tear our eyes away. Black mesh shirt, hair in a bow, black rubber bracelets up and down her arms. Yup, Madonna.

See, before I found out how old you were I at least have you credit for being about my age

So here's a question. What to you symbolizes moving on from a relationship that has ended?
For me, this last relationship it was my sheets. First, washing them for the first time after the breakup, then washing the other set for the first time since the breakup. Now, just today, I have bought NEW SHEETS. Brand new, never seen or touched or slept on by Ex of Doom, very pretty sheets! And they're oversized, so I have no problem making them stay on the bed. I am a happy bunny.
The next stage will be when I realize I've gone months without dreaming about him That's not really a symbolic thing, though. Replacing my sheets is a big deal right now; getting him as out of my life as possible so I don't have all kinds of reminders to spark my grief.
That got more emo than I meant it to.
Look, new sheets! They're golden Egyptian sateen cotten and are very crisp and new!

I, being Wiccan, performed this big cleansing ritual on my bed and I put all of the stuff he gave me into The Box. I took a cue from BSG (2004) and my fav episode when they talk about 'boxing' the cylons. I got the inspiration when I realized we had broken up for the same reasons Sharon got shot. He looked just like the guy, but that didn't mean they were the same person.

I love the Castro, because if somebody grabs my ass, I know they're picking my pocket.

This is going to sound really silly after all your serious moving on rituals but... the girls and I always have a what-was-your-name-again party after we break up with someone. It's usually held between one week and one month after the break up (depending how grievey the person is feeling) and we basically go out, have a fun night and get the break-upee nice and drunk.

Which, now that I think of it, is kind of the Irish solution to everything.

The truth is, I don't know how old I am. Chronologically I am 47 (almost 48), but I don’t feel it…not that I know what a 47 year old is supposed to feel like. When my father was my age he had 5 kids, a wife, and a business (auto mechanic). HE looked 47. I don’t have any of the responsibilities he had. I just have me and my house. I listen to heavy metal and alternative music and Sarah McLaughlin and some musicals. I have websites and play with smilies. I feel a lot more like 30 than 47. People are surprised when I tell them my age because I don’t look it at all (just a little bit of gray!).

I guess you are as old as you feel!

I think I should explain in-depth why the fact that I've bought new sheets is so important to me in terms of moving on-ness.
Having done "He's out of my life" rituals and "You're better off without him" parties with the girls, I felt a little better, but I had not really moved on. I missed him, I missed him particularly when I was trying to get to sleep. I wanted, however tenuous, a link to him that might comfort me when I was asleep.
He's never slept on these sheets. They are free of conotations of him. And I feel good about it! In that way, it's different from the "trying to get over this" things I've done so far. It's symbolic of something that has actually shifted in my mind.

I don't know if there is any one specific thing that symbolizes the event of getting over an ex, but I can tell you that the adage of time heals all wounds is true. You will get over him, move on, and find love again. One important thing when entering into a new relationship is to remember to take care of #1 and pursue and achieve your individual goals.

I was at the Austin City Limits Festival last weekend. Three days of non-stop music. There was a Gibson guitar demo booth set up. I stopped by and picked one up just to play a few chords - (i'm a Taylor guy)... anyway, a couple of young guys got in line to pick a demo and I overheard one of them say that he would show the other some particular tune when this "old dude" gets out of the way.

I'm good thanks, Ged.

I've been known to get a poster's gender wrong on many boards, so at this stage I tend to check! It's hard to tell a person's gender from their posting name, or even their posts! And the bios don't always say. I even got confused when I visited you on myspace because your photo was of you and your girlfriend, so that just confused the heck out of me.

See, this is why internet dating is an incredibly tactful affair.

Not too bad, not too bad, just going day to day with the expected emotional storms and stress and moments of joy. No big changes in my life, really. I think I'm on one side of a barrier right now, though, and once I break through a lot of things will change.
Right at this moment, though, I feel in need of a shower, so I'm out for the moment. Probably be back in a bit.

DTH, that drinking thing is also part of my solution...it's the Irish coming out!

Oct. 1st will be moving day for the soon-to-be-ex, which means she and all of her stuff will be out of the house. That night, my brother will be over, and he and I will probably tie one or two on. That next week will be the cathartic exercise; I will be rearranging the house to suit me...turn it into a nice-looking bachelor pad...changing the curtains, getting different furniture, etc. So, basically, my ritual is changing the space to fit me rather than "us".

Penguin, you are ageless. You are one of the fun people on this board that always have an emotie perfect for the situation. I hope I still feel as "young" as you in 12 years!

GED, thank you for that. I can also state with certainty that time heals all, PR.

Dayve..."old dude"...oy! Those damn whippersnappers need to learn respect for their elders!

ShinyKitten, yay for the Irish!

Morning All.

Good for you PR. Sometimes the smallest and silliest things are what remind you the most of some one that is gone from your life. When you can replace them it is a big step forward.

I relized that I was not young anymore when me and my friend from the old neighborhood were sitting at my house talking about his littlest step brother being 16 and he and his girlfriend had gotten pregnant. He was planning on dropping out of school and getting a job in a factory to support his new family. He figured that his dad did ok and and he never finished high school. So we were brainstorming on how to convince him that it was not a good idea and that he needed to stay in school.
I just got this blank look on my face and Chadwick (thats his name. Been friends since I was 12 and he was 10) asked what was up. I didn't know what to say. I just killed my beer and yelled out "when the did we become the adults?"
And of course that same week I heard GNR on an Oldies Radio Station. (Oldies?! They are the best band ever damn it! They are not Oldies right???)

The truth is, I don't know how old I am. Chronologically I am 47 (almost 48), but I don’t feel it…not that I know what a 47 year old is supposed to feel like. When my father was my age he had 5 kids, a wife, and a business (auto mechanic). HE looked 47. I don’t have any of the responsibilities he had. I just have me and my house. I listen to heavy metal and alternative music and Sarah McLaughlin and some musicals. I have websites and play with smilies. I feel a lot more like 30 than 47. People are surprised when I tell them my age because I don’t look it at all (just a little bit of gray!).

I guess you are as old as you feel!

King Penguin, I smell what you are cookin! I don't feel 42 and I don't look 42 and I often do not act 42. But then I remember that 42 is the new 25.

When I was a kid 40 was OLD and the people LOOKED old. My mom is 66 and she looks now to me how people looked then at 40.

Shoot life BEGINS at 40!

Morning, FMF! You are not old. You act young, talk young, think young...physical age, pah!

Morning, LA29! Sound beautiful up there. Inara, eh? I ended up as 94% Mal...
(hoping that did in fact raise a smile and not an eye-roll and an "oh, boy")

Thanks for the coffee...perfect thing for the mornings!

80% Kaylee That must be why I love my Tristan!

Didn't think I'd be so like Kaylee. I try to be cheerful, but I'm nowhere near as sciency as her.

84% Jayne here. Kinda threw me a little. I didn't think I was that crass and macho.

Although I do like his character and his growth through the BDS and BDM the best.

FMF - you are so not old. At least in my mind. But then again I feel old alot lately so...

Penguin - You sure you got the right Birth Cert? Could just be a mis print on it.

Tristan - I can see you as a Mal type. Just don't push me out an airlock please.

DTH - You are soo Kaylee.

You think you know--what's to come, what you are. You haven't even begun.


I am 76% Zoe. Or was it 78? Don't remember now. But I came up as Zoe. Thought I'd take it again and got 60% Inara. Odd, since I only relate to a few aspects of her; I could never be so bottled-up for one thing. I thought I'd get Kaylee or River before Inara. Who knew?

But you're pretty calm, philosophical, spiritual and in touch with your sensual side. That sounds very like Inara.

I'm a lot more scattered and emotional. I thought I'd wind up as River! Although I'm not as sciency as her either I can see how people on the board would think I'm Kayleeish, but that's probably because I love the character and have her as my avatar and signature!

You've got me there!
I guess I never thought of it like that. I knew the character had more depth than what we got to see, but partly because of Mal-angst, partly because of the short run, and maybe partly because of the actress, we didn't see a lot of that.
You're pretty bright and sunny like Kaylee. And don't you go saying you're not an animation genius, cuz we know you are!

"No power in the 'verse can stop me!"


Hello Imponderers... I just got home and it's almost 1am - crikey!!

I am watching Fame as I read this - LOL! I was about 19 and at Drama School when I first saw it! Now I go - hey - that kid with the red hair is the guy who played the bald doctor who lost his arm and was killed by a falling helicopter in ER!!!

Penguin - I knew you were 'chronologically 47' but I agree that the things our parents had and did are what made them seem that 'age' when we were younger... I am a gypsy - no house... just house-sitting, I love my job and I feel as I think I should have felt at about 28 (don't ask me why - but it's always 28) and in 10 months time I will also be in my 40s!

PR! Good for you - it's the little things that are worth celebrating Mei Mei!!!

Hi Ged - you have been missed! Glad to hear that the long distance relationship is still going well...

Tristan - well that's a ritual! It will feel good to get all her stuff out...so, Shindig at your place the following weekend???

And for the record - 90% Kaylee - I laughed at that coz I so identified with her when I first saw the Big Damned Pilot!
