I Made It to 31

I'm being lazy, but as a new Dad I think I've earned the right.

So anyway, I turned 31 today. Here's a link to my post from a year ago, in which I divulged my perfectly rational fears that I wouldn't live past 30.

Happy 2010 everyone! Thank you all for the birthday wishes. Hopefully soon I'll get back to writing posts that are little more clever, humorous, or in the very least, momentarily diverting.

Glad you're still with us, Brian, ancient as you are.

Your premonition could still be valid in a way, though. It might have just meant that your old life and way of being was on the way out, not your physical presence here on earth.

Not sure how much beer pong you're going to have time for in the near future, for instance. But I'm pretty sure you made a decent trade off.

Happy birthday and happy new year.

And you survived the 27 Club too. (Hendrix, Joplin, Morrison, Cobain etc.)

Best bet in LR? Jenny Agutter changing out of her wet kit in the tunnel. Worst bit: the lame ass ending.

My beer pong rivals have been breathing sighs of relief ever since they heard about the baby.

Happy new year to you!

It's been a long-ass time since I saw LR. But incidentally, I do remember the tunnel scene, and I also happen to forget the ending. Which only supports what you're saying.

They should not breathe too easy. I have no doubt that Fiona will grow up to be a beer pong champion.
