On the cusp.

It's my birthday tomorrow. 30 on the 30th. Holy fuck. How did that happen?

Here are some highlights from my twenties, in quote form:

"Give me back that notebook. If she finds out it's over for me."

"There's a flood. Let's drink to it."

"Not playing football today lads. I'm off to Warehouse with Denise."

"I'm moving out. No I'm staying. No I'm moving out. No I'm getting drunk instead of doing any of that."

5X: "Ardour expressed in gaseous form is ardour poorly expressed. Or so my granny always said."

"I had BRAIN surgery (insert number here) days ago."

Julie: "I don't want the lifetime commitment, I just want a day all about me."

"What does this thing do? Oh. Who knew? Again?"

"I'm gonna head off lads. OK, one more. Right, I'm away lads. OK, two more."

"Where's Dick Mack's?"

Johnny: "You do realise we've lived together so long, we're entitled to half of each other's stuff?"

Oh, bless.

Happy Birthday, six hours early... in case you're so old now you fall asleep during the evening news.

Asleep or awake, may you live to mourn the passing of many many more decades after this.

Radge said...

Hardly! I'm gonna stay up drinking with the aul fella, but he doesn't know it yet. Back on the dry on Monday.

Thanks Susan...

Radge:
Happy Birthday, you horribly young bastard.

Radge said...

Cheers gimme, you horribly supple fucker.

Let's see, you're 5 hours ahead of me so while it's a rainy afternoon here, it's probably pre-Birthday celebration time there!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY RADGE! May you receive all the happiness you can stand...and put the rest in a closet for later. Unless her name is "Happiness", then the closet idea might not be such a good idea.

Thirty was fun....enjoy!

Happy Birthday you spring chicken, you.

Wait 'til you hit FORTY and then you'll start saying stuff like
"It's nice that it now only takes me two gins to get pissed"
"What's wrong with Crocs - they're comfortable!" and
"It's too late for that - you should have tapped me on the shoulder an hour ago."

Darren said...

Happy Birthday, Mr Radge! :)

Radge said...

Thank you ladies and gentlemen. I feel exactly the same.

Holemaster said...

At least you won't get sudden unexplained boners anymore.

Radge said...

This is true, Holemaster. In future all boners come with a coronary.

tina said...

Belated happy birthday, Radge. Hope you had a good one!

Physically swinging the club is simple. Like any child does with a stick of the best possible length to achieve the ground while standing verging on vertical and after that making sense of how to hit some stone, weed staying up, or a blowing bit of paper, it is a great deal of fun yet difficult. Page after page in golf magazines clinically depict each subtlety of position and hold which are generally uncomfortable.
