I like being 30, I really do, but there are times when I hear, see, or do something where I'm like, "OMG, I'm an old crone." For instance:
The Goonies movie is TWENTY-FIVE friggin years old--Kill me now. It truly is an "oldie but a goodie."
Gwen Stefani--Anyone remember a little band called No Doubt? I do...my fourteen-year-old nephew doesn't, and he likes to ask me questions like, "Hey, um, have you ever, um, like heard of Gwen Stefani?" Yup, yup...I have. Her name still makes me feel like I'm walkin' on a spiderweb (leave a message and I'll call you back.)
Noise--Young people are just too loud with their hippity hop music and LOLZ and yelling. They hurt my old-ass ears.
80's Fashion--It's back in a big way...and I remember when it was here the first time.
High school boys--Now that I know that high school boys don't actually look like the boys from Glee (most high school boys are gangly and pimply and awkward looking, but hell, I didn't care when I was in high school...they were sOOO hot!) I can't BELIEVE the crushes I had back then. Seriously, take a look back at your crush in a yearbook (they're made of paper, those yearbooks) and just see what a goob he was. I dare you.
Anything make you feel old?
