Well I Turned 40 Today

Well it's finally here.. I turned the BIG 4-0 today. Honestly I was looking forward to turning 40. I had friends saying.. wow 40 or you can be 39.95 but I am really happy to be turning 40. My 30's where some of the best times of my life. And I'm hoping 40's will be too.There are days I feel like I'm 80 and other days I feel like I'm 18. I think being a geek and loving scifi and fantasy has kept me young at heart. I don't feel 40 inside, and from what people are telling me I don't look it, but even it I did it wouldn't bother me.

This morning I spent 3 hours on Facebook and Twitter thanking the few hundreds of Happy Birthdays comments that I got. I never felt so loved, I have so many wonderful online/real life friends. I wanted to personally thank every person who wished me a Happy Birthday because they took the time to send the message it's the least I can do to thank them individually. I also got lots of very nice compliments and praise which I have always had a hard time accepting, I don't know why, I'm just being the person I was meant to be. But I do appreciate all the nice things everyone has said.

Today was a pretty low key birthday day.. Harry and I went out to Islands (one of my favorite places) to get my Birthday lunch. I worked out in the yard, and did a bit of cleaning around the house. The big 40th Bash will be on Saturday the 25th. Got about 40+ people coming over to the house for a BBQ/Birthday Bash.. should be lots of fun.

Once again I want to thank all my wonderful friends and family for making me feel extremely lucky and special on this big day!!!


  1. Just remember, we geeks will never truly age since we have total mastery of the space/time continuum (and we are awesome)!

  2. you deserve it! have a special day on sat.

  3. Every birthday is a cause for celebration. After all the alternative isn't that great.

  4. Happy birthday wishes from Illinois! Glad to hear that you had a great day, and Sat. will be even better! Cheers:)

  5. Happy Birthday. Where are the pics of the tattoo?? The anticipation is killing me. "Did he go with Hogwarts or R2D2? Agh!"
