The 1s are a little different
There’s something about the “1s” that really hit you. Turning 40, 30, and even 20 is a shock, but turning 41, 31, and 21 is more of a: “Well, I guess I should get used to this,” type of feeling.
Because I have to see the rents tomorrow, the wife brought me out to catch the Captain America flick in a red leather recliner, and then dinner at Five Napkin Burger on the UWS the other night.
My seventh birthday was roughly the same except I went to see Superman II and had Burger King.
The more things change, the more they stay the same.
Speakinga staying the same, wish me a Happy Birthday, alla you bastards that read me and never say anything.
Just to change it up a little bit, I’m actually going to give something to you instead of the other way around a week from today so check back then?
Location: off to the gym
Music: I’d go black and blue, I’d go crawling down the avenue.

Okay, okay, you got me – happy birthday! Thanks for the consistently thoughtful posts and here’s to many more.
Side note: I can’t remember how I found your blog in the first place, but I never comment because it feels strange to do so without actually knowing someone in person.
Heya – thanks for the comment and the well-wishes! You were the first.
I actually got to “know” a number of people from their blogs, many of whom I never actually met. But after reading them for years, I felt I did. So, I can understand it.
But thanks again for doing it, it does mean a lot!
41 and looking better every day . Happy Birthday!!
It’s the constant diet of rum and chili. Thanks, you’re the best wife ever!
Happy early birthday! Keep blogging til you’re 101!
If I’m lucky, I’ll make it. Thanks and thanks for another year of keeping up with my nonsense.
Hey shorty, it’s your birthday! We gonna party like it’s your birthday!
And hey, the 9’s and the 1’s hit me harder than the 0’s. Asian genetics though – you can totally pretend to be younger (stay in denial…it’s fun there sometimes)
Shorty and getting shorter – I think I’m destined to be one of those wizened old men.
My wife tells me to tell everyone that I’m 37; I’m not going to lie, I’ve been considering it.
Happy Birthday! 生日快樂! お誕生日おめでとうございます! Hau’oli Lā Hānau!
Here’s to the 1s, 2s, 3s…9s and 0s.
Goodness, those numbers keep coming, don’t they? I suppose it’s better than if they stopped coming.
Happy birthday Logan! You look absolutely fabulous!
It’s all Photoshop – Thanks, Jocelyn!
Happy Birthday Logan!
Commented, I think, only once before, but I absolutely love your blog! Here’s to many, many more years of blogging.
Thanks for the comment and the kind words! I know that people read this blog, I just never know who or what they think. It’s nice finding out.
Happy Birthday Logan! Still reading (but still not commenting except for on your special day, my bad), and appreciating all the insights, thoughts and assorted ramblings you put out into the world. Keep on keeping on.
Heya – Glad to see some of my old readers are still around. Thanks for the comment and the well-wishes – and for letting me know that you’re still out there!
Hope you had a great birthday! Time flies~~~
It really does – thanks!
Be grateful that you’re still handsome with skin like a toddler. I wouldn’t worry about the 1’s when it’s really the 9’s that may push you over the edge (it’s the anticipation of the next year bringing you a new decade in your life.) 😛 I turned 41 in January amidst a punishing life change I (maybe stupidly) perpetrated upon myself. You know what you got in exchange for those 41 years? Wisdom & experience. This year will be like a new pair of jeans that are a little stiff at first, but with washing & wearing, will eventually have that broken-in-with-love feel & have the potential to be the best/favorite pair of jeans you’ve ever owned. 😀 Cheers to a great year, Mr. Lo. http://youtu.be/HKtsdZs9LJo
Hey there, Toni! Thanks for such a detailed and thoughtful comment – it is much appreciated.
I’m hoping that I got a lot of wisdom and experience but I’m never sure. I mean, we’re never sure anything is actually the right choice until after a long enough time-line. But I’m hoping you’re right. And, as it turns out, I just patched up one of my old pairs of jeans. Let’s see how that goes.
It is appropriate time to make some plans for the future and it is time to be
happy. I have read this publish and if I could I wish to suggest you few attention-grabbing issues or tips.
Maybe you could write subsequent articles relating
to this article. I want to learn even more things about it!
Hey there! Do you know if they make any plugins to safeguard
against hackers? I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve worked hard on.
