In an anonymous online world, we see avitars and assume lots of things based on the content of that avitar (poster). Sometimes we become close enough to share personal information with others, and sometimes we just have a mental image of what we assume others to be. I actually have a separate voice for some that I use in my head when I read their posts. Like an accent for those from the UK or the really poor Auusie accent I use when I read Sublimecrafts posts. (I'm sure his accent is fine, it's mine rendition of it that's poor) But every now and then I see someone make a comment about their age and I am able to relate to them instantly because they are close to me in age and we have both been on this planet for about the same amount of time.

So here is my personal confession. I was born in 69, graduated HS in 87. So 48 now.

As of tomorrow, I'll have been here for 30 years.


Time truly flies.

Born in 1990, currently 27 Earth Years old (I guess 28 if you include the 9-month gestation). Fascinating how different the human experience can be if you were just born 5-10 years earlier or later.

Since 1986

I look like I'm 20
I'm actually 30
I feel like I'm 40
I think like I'm 50
Hopefully I make it to 60.

I had you pegged but I cheated and remembered your old avitar picture.

Born in 1980, graduated 1998.

Old enough to know better, but still young enough to do sh#t that I shouldn't do....

4,246 years and 15 hours, at 9 am in about 7 minutes.

Boy, time flies after your first millennia.

In this incarnation I am 53 going on 23 which is probably better than the other way round.


Getting older sucks.

quoted for truth.

And the amazing speed at which life happens as opposed to when we were teenagers. Damn, yesterday I was mid 30's.

It is a good question to ask Network!

I have been Earthwalking it for about 32 years and one thing is for certain it keeps getting more interesting!

The reason you hear a poor Aussie accent, is coz he's a Kiwi bro.


Ohhh yeah, fush and chups at sux a cluck.

*runs away from the severe beating I'll cop*



I love the Kiwi accent to be honest.

*ahem*

Only because I have met you, when I read your posts, the voice I hear is Ray Liotta's. And yes, you amuse me. Like a clown.

I'm not telling.

Reading the above has just made me feel much much older now.

I need a hobby.

The answer depends. My soul feels like a hundred years or more. My mind thinks I'm still 25. My body says I've spent too many years eating donuts and chips instead of salad. I have a young son but I'm also a grandmother of four. I'm old enough to remember being in the back of a pickup truck with no seatbelt in sight ,but young enough I can sing along to a top 40 hit on the radio. Somewhere between here and there is a number....but no matter the number I never identified with it.
