Today's the day, and I'm it.

From this point forward, it's Ok to:
- Buy a Porsche Cayman.
- Grow a ponytail.
- Get a 22 year old Ukrainian girlfriend.
[I draw the line at Botox, however. For me, that is. The Ukrainian can use as much as she wants.]

But those are projects for next week.

What am I doing today, specifically? Oh...I'll provide details later this week.

Happy Birthday!

Are you sure you aren't 17?

There are definitely times when I do feel 17.

But technically-speaking, Nina is correct. And auto insurance provider agrees with her.

Very best wishes, Sal, and welcome to the club! You'll see it's not that bad ;)

Happy, Happy Birthday! Eat lotsa pork and wash it down with lotsa red.

You may be 40, but I'd say you've got a few good years left in you yet. You're only as old as you feel, right? Just look at me, I've got 4 years on you and I'm still (barely) standing. :-)

You're 40? Congratulations! Been there, done that, 2 years ago. I spent my 40th in a microbiology lab going back to school for respiratory therapy. What did you do on your big day?

Happy Birthday Sal - Welcome to the club! It's really not so bad at all.

At 8:57 PM, Blogger Ms Mac said...

Happy birthday Sal. I've still got three years to go (not that I'm gloating or anything) so be sure and gather up loads of Forties experiences to share with me when it happens!


Happy 40th!

Man! guys are the coolest! Don't let anyone tell you that the blogosphere is a pathetic excuse for a social life. Thanks very much for all your good wishes.

The day is over, I'm dead tired, and fifteen people in Spain are well-fed. More on that later.

I'm off to have one last glass of wine, then I'm off to bed.

Thanks again, everyone.

Happy B-day Sal... Technically it's still your bday since it's not yet the next day here in North America..

At 7:09 AM, Blogger CanadianSwiss said...

Blogger seems to have eaten up my B-Day wishes :(

Nevertheless, I hope you had a great day... Happy Birthday, again and welcome to the club!

40 is the new 20..especially in your case..doing ballet and all the crazy stuff you do:)
Happy b'day!

I'm a bit behind, but feliz cumpleanos! (Insert appropriate accents and tildes.) I say, go for the Porsche, skip the ponytail, and the girlfriend will follow.

At 9:48 PM, Blogger J said...

Happy bday, Sal. You're only 1 year and 3 days behind me.

Come on in, the water's fine. It's as late at night or without a little nod towards not living on Snickers bars and Coke, but it's still fine, fine, fine. And look at the good company everywhere.

Many, many, many happy returns.

Feliz cumpleaños! over from Mausi's :)

Does this mean you are a grown up now?

Why settle for a 22 year old? At age forty, ladies in their 30's may start to notice you.

You are still a pup Sal. Don't rub it in.


At 7:59 AM, Blogger tinakala said...

Sal, happy happy F day. I wish you that you would never really grow up. Because grownups are boring.

You're too young for the midlife crisis ... gotta at least be 45 for that. And be glad if you have enough hair for a ponytail ... nothing worse than a balding-on-top guy with a ponytail.

Hey rotten one, it's already much later ... and still I am waiting.

Sigh, you don't realise that your loyal blogging public have needs too and then then there's the other hangers-on and ne'er-do'wells.

So ... do tell, please.

At 7:26 PM, Blogger Chris said...

Happy 40th dude! I am right behind you....well, at least I still have the summer before the big 40.

So......have you scheduled your lovely 40 year physical? You know, the one where they start going "there" every 5 years.

Hope your day was great!

At 8:54 PM, Blogger Angie said...

Must have been one hell of a party! Or perhaps you've run off to the Ukraine... In any case, you are missed. :)
