We’re Gonna ROCK This Thing!

Tuesday is my birthday, y’all.  A big one.  Thanks to Facebook, I’ve watched many of my former classmates hit the big 5-0 before me.  It’s rightfully my turn.  But before I surrender to the idea of joining the AARP, living on nickel coffee, and mangeing out at the 4:30 Early Bird Specials, I think I’ll look around and see who else is at the mid-century mark.

Check this out.  All these people were born in 1964:

  • Lenny Kravitz
  • Rosie Perez
  • Eddie Vedder
  • Marisa Tomei
  • Sandra Bullock
  • Rob Lowe
  • Stephen Colbert
  • Courtney Love
  • Bobby Flay
  • Molly Shannon
  • Tracy Chapman
  • Wanda Sykes
  • (Stone Cold) Steve Austin
  • Keanu Reeves
  • Nicholas Cage
  • Courtney Cox
  • Russell Crowe
  • Don Cheadle

That’s not too shabby.  I’m in pretty good company.  We don’t seem like we’re ready to hang it up for the nursing home just yet.  And, there are always the ones who hit 50 last year (including Brad Pitt, Johnny Depp, James Hetfield, Quentin Tarantino, and Michael Jordan).

Oh, yeah.  We’re going to make this look good.  Go ahead.  Envy us.  I know Mr. R. does.  He still has a couple of years to go.  That’s right.  I’m an older woman.

It’s going to look kind of like this.

I only picked a few.  Click on the link for the full list.
