Turning 33

I'm 33 today, guys!!

Steampunk cake. Because they can; wouldn't you?

As much as I love lists, I can't think of ANY topic where I could come up with 33 things, except perhaps 33 countries I'd like to visit before I die. But that would be an incomplete list, because we all know that I want to visit ALL THE COUNTRIES before I die. So.

Turning 30, being in my thirties, none of these have held any major significance for me. Most of my friends don't have issue with aging either, so when I do encounter someone who has the "I'M TURNING X AGE HOLY CRAP MY LIFE IS ALREADY OVER" freak out, I don't really know how to react.

I know it is socially unacceptable to do what Sheldon is doing below, so often I end up just awkwardly staring as they melt down, then channeling Dr. Cooper and even more awkwardly saying "there there" while I look around for an escape route.

I'm a terrible friend. Writing this makes me realize I just need to buy the sad friend a drink and call it good, and then we all win. Let's be winners and drink Arbor Mist, guys!!

By the way, Arbor Mist blackberry wine is FABULOUS. I'm a snob about a lot of things, including alcohol, but not on this one. $4 a bottle and it tastes like juice? Talk about everyone winning!

Now, where did I put my glass?


  1. LOVE the BBT gif!! I channel my inner Sheldon Cooper in those moments, too. I'm hella old ...45..and I didn't have that feeling when I turned 40...or even 45. I don't get it. I mean, my KNEES lament that we aren't 20 years younger, but I don't! --Lisa

  2. GAH! I totally accidentally hit "publish" too early. HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! I hope you are having a fantastic birthday week! Cheers!! --Lisa

    1. Aw, thank you so much! I had a lovely birthday and feel very loved :)


Speak your mind, fiercely!
