Downhill from here?

Let us celebrate the occasion with wine and sweet words.
- Plautus

Or maybe with a poignant song...

Sigh. Another year gone by. Is this really where life begins or is that just bullshit?

This song really sums things up for me right now: I'm an over-forty victim of fate, down to rock bottom again (with just a few friends) and my occupation is nowhere to be found.

Gonna go get drunk now. Care to join me?

Old age: A great sense of calm and freedom. When the passions have relaxed their hold, you may have escaped, not from one master but from many.
- Plato

A Slow Learner With Fast Reflexes

Conversations of the Damned, Part LXIII:

The Missus: (Folding laundry) "These little jeans here are mine!"

Me: "Really?!?!"

The Missus: [Hard stare]

Me: [blink, blink]

The Missus: [Stony silence, darkening clouds gathering ominously over her head]

Me: "Oh! I mean... Yeah... Yes! They certainly are!"

Really, the couch is quite comfortable. If only it could fit in the doghouse...
