Today is special for quite a few reasons. Firstly, it seems to be the international Geek Pride Day which coincides (on purpose) with the anniversary of the Star Wars premiere (1977 in case you didn’t remember). As if this was not enough reason to celebrate, May 25 is also the Towel Day – which was established to celebrate the work of Douglas Adams of the Hitchhikers’ Guide to the Galaxy fame. Also, this is the day when JFK announced the Apollo Program and it’s goal to put a man on the moon.
All in all, this is pretty special day. A good day for a geek like me to be born. 29 years ago I did just that – I got born. This is officially the last year of my “twenties”. After this, I am no longer allowed to refer to myself as a “twenty something year old guy”. Fuck this. I think I’m actually reaching that point in my life where I am required by law to complain about getting old on and around my birthday. That whole shtick used to annoy me in the past. Yes, you are exactly one year older than last year – I know this is comes as a shock to you but can you please blow out the candles and let us eat this fucking cake.
Also, can someone tell all the people my age to fucking stop getting their shit together? Everyone is all having careers, getting married, having kids and buying houses. This is absolute and utter madness and I will have none of it. Everyone sit the fuck down and wait for me. I don’t even have my shoes on or anything. Seriously!
Here is a toast to everyone else in their late 20’s or early 30’s who also doesn’t have their shit together yet. I am way to young to be making blog posts about getting old.
