  9. I worry about how to pay off my KIDS college loans

  10. My jeans fit...they don't sag off the back...and I like that they fit

  11. My i-pod is a 1985 flashback of new wave music

  12. My earing is no longer a sign of rebellion against the establishment

  13. I am the establishment!

OMG!! if it's THAT good then sign me up!!! I just turned 30 and i seriusly cant wait to be 40. I have everything i ever wanted and some things i didnt (but those things come with age). I look forward to more gray hair, my children growing up, adn becoming an old fogey. I cant wait until todays music become classics and tomorrows music is remakes of the classics......

please tell me this is all possible....
