Yeah...I turned 40 on Thursday. Kinda sucks in a way, y'know? Mortality and all that. Halfway done now and all that. The old "I thought I'd have accomplished more...made more money...had more groupies...etc.,etc." The body aches are definitely more prevalent as the days go by as well. My feet, my neck, back, teeth and the new one this week was my right oblique (could possibly be a cracked rib, too) that's causing me quite a bit of discomfort. Yep, 40.

On the plus side I am alive and still kicking ass! Both figuratively and literally speaking. Pulled in about 20 boards on Wednesday playing hoops (yes, wearing goggles!) and ran from end to end of that damned court like a 20-year-old. Course the 20-year-olds probably aren't wrecked for the entire following day like I am but what the hell.

Also on the plus side is the fact that my wife still supports me chasing my dreams--or delusions--of grandeur. And my daughter still thinks I'm pretty cool and wants to wrestle and play every day with me. And that's pretty darned cool.

So, what does a 40-year-old get for his birthday you might ask? Well, this 40-year-old gets the massage chair he's wanted to get for the past 10 years but couldn't afford. Still can't but for the fact that Relax The Back Store had a 50% off floor model sale! YES!!! It is possible to love a non-living object, me.

I also picked up a couple new cds by Josh Ritter and James Blunt. I discovered these two wonderful musicians a few months back and am now in the process of acquiring everything they've ever done. Completely original and brilliant, beautiful music. I also picked up the new novel "The Last Days Of Krypton" by Kevin J. Anderson and started reading that last night. So far so good. Great concept and I'm excited about reading this. Also picked up Charlie Huston's newest book; the follow-up to the "Already Dead" vampire novel. Huston's books are incredible! Great characters, brutal but believable violence and paced at breakneck speed. And today we're going to see "The Bee Movie"...hope it's good. It's Seinfeld so my hopes are very high. I'll let you know.

Okay, off to work now on issue #6 of MARVEL COMICS PRESENTS. Things are really starting to heat up for Michael Pointer, a.k.a. Guardian, a.k.a. Weapon Omega!!!

Dale's Gravatar You wouldn't like James Blunt if you had to listen to him every day for the past year on a store intercom. Just when Beautiful was dying off, he comes out with this 1973 song. Muzak is killing me.
