Happy birthday!

Happy birthday! (Oddly enough, 33 wasn’t as big a deal for me as 31 was.)

Well, hey, just think: At least you’re not Iron Fist, where turning 33 apparently means getting hunted down by a demonically possessed guy who can mess with your chi while trying to kill you so the demon can try to consume the source of your power.

Just got to look at the bright side, man. Happy birthday.

I am too poor to buy you gifts, or I would do so just because you aren’t taxing my adblocker!

well, and the thing where I like your blog.

Happy birthday!

Huh, funny — tomorrow, I’m 34.

Do we have anyone here who’s 35 on Wednesday, just for symmetry? *grin*

Happy birthday, MGK — you young punk! ;)

I turn 37 later this year, so I’m soooo envious of you right now.

35 is the year you really need to watch out for.

On the upside, 33 is also intimately associated with LPs — and everybody loves vinyl, right?

That’s something.

Oh, 33 is the worst. It’s especially terrible when you realize that Charlie Parker, Mozart, Alexander the Great and Jesus Christ all died at or near 33. When you realize what a waste your life is compared to some, you just…oh, I’m not helping, am I?

Seriously, man, it gets better. :) Happy birthday, and many more!

I turned 33 about a month ago, so I feel your pain. Happy birthday!

Happy birthday! And, look at it this way, at least you’re not a woman. Women just cringe all throughout their thirties.

Hey, next year you’ll do something Jesus couldn’t do–live to 34. So there’s that to look forward to.

Happy Birthday MGK. You are exactly the same age as my wife. I will not be showing her that picture.

Always nice to see a Frighteners reference. Also, I have to go with MDF that 33 is a LOT better than 37.

Happy Birthday, Chris. You’re already a legend in your own time, which has to help.;)

Holy crap, I can’t believe someone beat me to the “Well, at least you are not an Iron Fist” comment. That’s how you know you have nerdy readers.

Happy Birthday, MGK

*cues up “It Sucks To Be Me”, where Brian mentions turning 33*

Hope it doesn’t suck! :)

Dude! Happy birthday! I always wished I could come up with a good birthday slainte, but I never get much better than hope you have a great year, so I hope you do!

The trick is to surround yourself with people a little older than you. That way you can say ’33 sucks but at least I’m not 35′ and look at your friends and smile. They will always be older than you until they die…and then at least you’re still alive. Even though you have no friends. But by then young people will be guilted into pretending to care for you and you’ll be too old to know the difference so it will all work out. :)

Positive thinking FTW.

Happy Birthday! And I promise future wishlist-item contingent on future lottery success.

As Dana Gould said about 33…”It’s not old, but it is the beginning of not young”…

Just wait until 35 kicks you in the nuts, that’s when my age actually started bothering me for some reason.

Cheers!

Happy birthday! And just remember, when you start to feel old…you haven’t even lived half your life outside of the public education system yet.

Someone told me, years ago when I was your age, that at 33 “you’re out of the fun third, and into the working third”. So what’s the last third, ie 66 to 99? “The dying third.” Thanks for that.

Do not cry for 33 years. As long as you’ve 1) seen both oceans, 2) made love to a beautiful woman, 3) made love to said beautiful woman whilst in view of both oceans, and 4) beat up a member of the Club for Growth, then you have lived as a Man, and God Bless You.

>3) made love to said beautiful woman whilst in view of both oceans

You mean, like…on the space station? How high up do you have to be to see both oceans?

Then again, I guess maybe it depends which of the oceans you pick as your two; Arctic and Pacific wouldn’t be too tough if you went to Alaska.

Likewise, Indian and Pacific shouldn’t be too hard, either.

But could you post contact info for the “Club for Growth”? Apparently, I have some beating up to do. (Honestly, I’m surprised they can get people to join, if their primary function is to be beaten up by people wanting to prove their manhood. If I were them, I’d start carrying a gun.)

Happy birthday a day late, MGK. I turned 32 last month, so I feel 96% of your pain. :(

I will go and have a look at that wishlist now.

I have to stop double posting as much as I do. Anyway, I ordered We3 for ya, which is something I’m interested in reading too when my LCS gets it in (I’ve asked the guy to order it).

Finally, I’ve always felt that “early thirties” is 30-33, “mid-thirties” is 34-36 and “late thirties” is 37-39. So you have another year of relative youth left. (Sorry, Mad Scientist and Davekan; I calls ‘em like I sees ‘em.)

Happy belated Birthday.

I turned 34 on the 8th.
