Ravings and Rantings

Welcome to my cloud! It's got a nice silver lining somewhere.....Some ranting, some raving--mostly positive stuff,lots of jokes (I can't stay serious). Nothing going on here that a pina colada or mohito can't fix.

    I refuse to feel old today. I am going to the store and wait there til the little bastard cards me, and he better be sincere. I'm going to the mall and smile at college age women, and they better smile back. I might run a marathon today, or at least watch one on tape. I think I will go to a stop light and wait to drag race the first punk that wants to lose. I am going to have sex 4 times tonight, all with the same hand. I am invincible, not old...nooo not old. Ok, I will probably be in bed by 9 without having done any of the above, but don't tell anyone, cuz I'm still cool. Yes, kidding...you always ask me that...lol.

    tshsmom, that's the year before I got out of university, so we're definitely close in age! Not to mention attitude.

    CM, I finally guessed who you are! You're that 'probie' guy on NCIS, right? No, wait, he's too much of a kid...well, glad you're kidding!
