    I refuse, hear me, refuse to say I'm 32 next year... so when it does come around, I won't be 32 but instead 21 with 11 years experience! :D

    Truth be told, I don't really mind my 30s that much. In fact, in retrospect, I think the thought of turning 30 was worse than actually being in one's 30s. You still can do most of the stuff you were physically able to do when you were younger*, but yet being older and more experienced also offers a lot of perks. You have a better job, you make better decisions, and you can devote more time to basically living life. At 35, I'd say that I'm enjoying my 30s more than my 20s.

    * The one exception to this general rule is physical tolerance to alcohol, or more specifically, the recovery time from alcohol consumption. While it still takes me about the same amount of time to become intoxicated, I find that the hangovers the next day are much worse. 10 years ago, I could drink as much as I wanted and go to work early the next morning without issue. Now, a night of drinking is 3 or 4 beers, because the hangover the next day just isn't worth it.

    Yeah Tal, you have plenty of them to spare.... or you can throw some gold coins our way from your Hoard. I'm sure with your b-day just passing, you went up an age category and your hoard grew with it.:D

    Wtf! I returned to this place at its founder's birthday? Perhaps I heard Balkan music and smelled the breath weapon of a pink dragon blowing out candles...

    Anyway, I hope you had a nice day, Your Royal Dudeness!
