PUSHING 50.

Today is my birthday! And it's a BIG one, so I wanted to commemorate it with a little animation.

Yeah, I've been pushing 50 so hard it's staggering over backwards. Some of you may say, "wow, you're old". And some may say, "you don't look 50". And still others may say, "can I have some cake?"

But I say, "THIS IS WHAT 50 LOOKS LIKE."  How old are you?

  2. Happy birthday! You're only as old as you feel. Of course, that can backfire... sometimes, I feel like I'm 70. Then again, sometimes I feel like I'm 13. So maybe it's you're only as young as you feel on average.

    Oh, and can I have some cake?

  16. Happy Birthday JC. I hope it goes on all week with salutations, cakes, flowers, champagne and presents lots of presents. Was that an unexpressed four letter expletive ? Just like MIA but I won't tell anyone.

  17. Happy Birthday! Where's the cake? I'm 43, so pretty soon, I'll be nudging 50. But all that pushing you did made me tired. That's why I need cake.

    Anyway, hope you have a great birthday, and that your next half century is even better than your first!

  25. This post genuinely made me spit water out my nose. LOVED it- maybe even better than FUQMAN, if that's possible!

    Chronologically, I am 44 + 2 weeks tomorrow. Mentally, I'm holding firm at 13.

    Happy Birthday, JC!

    3. The last time I did an actual IRL backflip was two years ago whilst playing capoeira; I was 48. All I can offer now that I'm 50 is this.

  29. Happy Birthday! I had my 40th on the 4th. I'm glad to hear you have a good attitude about 50 because that one scares me a lot more than 40!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Ha! I LOVE it! I turned 50 a few weeks ago, and my husband turned 50 the same day you did - the 6th! And I agree with what you said: "This is what 50 looks like!" You have to OWN IT.

  31. I finally got a chance to watch this. :-)
    LOL!!! Happy Birthday!!! You wear 50 very well. :-) I know many 35-40 year olds that can't strain / push like that anymore... at least not without hurting their back or having an 'accident' ;-P You look great for being 50. Hope it was a wonderful day, with a happy family and a full glass of wine.

    1. Um...I didn't have an 'accident' but I did go quite red in the face. For a second there I even got wobbly. But then I made a complete recovery.

      THANK YOU for the good wishes Sarah!
