    I honestly misread that as "bowel trouble" to begin with, which made the rest of the post interesting.

    shorter hours of sunlight have an affect on me. harder to get up in the morning when it's still dark outside, and feel less inclined to go out and socialize when it's cold and dark again at 5:00 pm.

    christ, had to run three-and-a-half blocks to catch a train yesterday and honestly thought I was going to die. my legs actually hurt, was limping a bit afterwards, muscles still slightly sore this morning. I often walk 5-6 miles on a Saturday or Sunday, so not a total blob but a three-minute jog to the station felt lethal. then again, I am a old bastard.

    I'm pretty sure that the person I was quoting meant to say bowel trouble. It's a classic mistake... my favourite was the advert for an all-comers "Open bowels tournament".

    That's a horrific realization. I live in fear of it. That, and my teeth falling out.

    I'm 35 this weekend and it feels like I'm closing in on 40.

    I remember my dad's fortieth birthday.

    A lot of my friends now have kids. I'm not really jealous of having kids but it does feel a bit like they're doing what you should be doing at my age and I'm still living my same old life.

    It struck me horribly the other day that I'm pretty much already at the extreme end of how old you should be going to certain nightclubs.

    not in a craner sense of wanting to be a distinguished silver fox, but in a sense of having achey knees, bowl troubles and regrets.
    LOL this is still true

    I went bald in my late 20s but then it grew back. Although that was stress-induced alopecia rather than normal baldness.

    BTW, shaven head + goatee = instant badass.

    it's never a good look to cling on to your last hairs i think so i asked a good friend of mine yesterday she should tell me when i have to shave it all off. could've seen this coming though, my father has been bald for as long as i know him. i'm also thinking of maybe getting some sort of signature hat that would become part of my new character.

    That wasn't another time, it was another dimension.
