Must See Post

Fragrant Liar has a wonderful post up on... um... ageing.

Anyone over the age of 45, or getting there or thinking that despite all evidence to the contrary they'll never get older (get the hell out of Neverland people!) must read this. Check it out here.

A couple of excerpts to hook you...


Thirty years ago, I looked at my current age as far off in the future, in a land far, far away where gravity was of infinitesimal consequence. Time was something alien and against my primal mantra of I am young, I am invincible, I am the skinny girl with perky breasts.

(...)


These days as I prepare to speak, my measureless experiences crowd into my frontal lobe, jockeying for position to blast off my tongue first. Pick me, pick me, they clamor. And I reply tacitly, First come, first served. One thought breaks through the throng and lines up on the launching pad that is my tongue. It's coming . . . it's coming . . . Wait for it. It's . . . it's . . . gone. I am flustered and humbled by the ever-insidious brain fart.


I swear, the woman has been messing around in my brain. But enough about me, go there, go there now! And while you're at it, become a regular.

Because she's a great writer with a wicked sense of humour - I only wish I could write like her.

And because I said so.


PS: No, I'm not blogging at 8:00 am on a Saturday. I have a life. Which at this moment is being slept away, or maybe sexed away. Neither of which is wasted time. Gotta love blogger scheduling!

This was great, thanks for sharing. Just what I need is yet another blog to follow.

Dammit! Another person I'm older than . . .

Hey, thanks for the plug! I always appreciate when others appreciate my writing.

I just came here from Fragrant's place, so ha! Like you, I enjoyed the hell out of her clever musings.

And now I'm enjoying the hell out of you getting sexed up on the weekend.

See, I can't schedule ahead if I think I am going to be getting sexed away - it seems wicked somehow. Like everyone will know. :)

Yup, she's good.

This is like the 5th or 6th blog I've read today that's linking other blogs I absolutely HAVE to read. I'm really going to have to retire so I can more fully devote myself to this blog business
