For those of you keeping track, I’m 35 now. Yup, had my birthday Wednesday.
Going by a literal reading of the Bible, I’m half-way through my life span (“threescore and ten”). Going by modern numbers, I could in theory be only 1/3 of the way through my life. Going by actuarials….forget that. I could get hit by a bus tomorrow. I should have been wiped out so many times already but here I am. I think I’ll follow Han Solo’s advice — never tell me the odds.
My birthday present to myself? I’m trying to buy an Xbox. Not an Xbox 360, just a regular Xbox. It’ll play the games I want to play right now, and I’m still planning on getting the family an Xbox 360 for Christmas, so the games I get between now and then will work on the family console.
