I am an Old Fart…And Proud of it

Posted on November 2nd, 2010

Have you ever done something so weird, so out of character that it makes you realize something really, really bad is happening to you? If you have, then you understand the trauma I am experiencing at this very moment.

You see, the other day, something awful happened. Something that made me question my entire outlook on life. Something that made me realize that

    Hahahahahahaha!!! L&O is cool. I tape Y&R because I get home too late to watch it at 6pm on Soap Net. Thursdays are referred to by me as ‘Killer Women’ day because of the shows on ID. I get up EARLY on the weekends to watch my EPL matches live, then spend the day watching PBS….That makes you a younger fart – ummm, yeah…you kow what I mean.

    Karrin, what is EPL? And you should check out Law and Order: UK. I can’t understand half of what they are saying, but the part I do understand is really good :)

    Wait! I’m 16 and I get that excited for “Law & Order” reruns! Jesse L. Martin makes my heart m-e-l-t.

    And you’re totally right about MTV. What happened to the “music”? Or the “television” for that matter?

    Consider yourself lucky that you caught a “back-to-back”!

    EPL is english premier league. I watch also because I am a soccer fan. But my darling children call me an old fart because I love to watch Ghost Whisper reruns. So I know the feeling. I also love L&O SVU. Us old farts need to stick together no matter what our children say.

    I have been watching L&O for almost three years now. Yes, most of it is the SVU version, but you are not old for getting excited about it. When I was pregnant with my son, TNT would have 5-hour long marathons and I would sit on the couch for 5 stinking hours. Only moving for potty breaks and the occasional poptart (my craving!). As I am almost 21 (18 days!), and I watch the same show, you are not an old fart. Getting excited about the old movie channel, however, makes you as old as my mom…and me on Sundays…

    English Premier League – real football *lol*. I love L&O-UK…just something about a man with an accent….brouge is better but I’ll settle for cockney ; )

    Hey, I’m only 22, and i do a little happy dance when i see a law and order marathon… My fav is the Criminal Intent… It makes my husband roll his eyes and go into the other room when he can see how long that channel is going to be on!

    Btw, i love your blog, im not a parent yet, but it gives me a good idea of what i have to look forward to!!

    And as my grandma says… you’re not old… just well seasoned.

  8. Laurie Says:

    LOL! Good to know I’m not as old as I think–or as old as I look in the mirror (seriously, I think mirrors should be banished at least until I get the picture in the attic to start aging instead of me). If it doesn’t start working soon, I may end up over-seasoned :) But I guess that makes me spicy, right??

    The good news is since the “young” farts on here also love L&O, I can start calling it my guilty pleasure instead of my old fart addiction! I will not start watching soccer though. Seriously, I had enough of that when the teenager was young. I do like the classic movie channel though. I can watch it forever.

    BTW, Happy birthday Lauren…a bit early.

    TCM rocks! The hubs rolls his eyes when I exclaim ‘YAY!!! Bringing Up Baby is on!!!!’ or ‘OH It’s Richard III, the B&W version!! Sweet!’ *lol* As for soccer – I love the sport but the men in shorts with ripped abs…oh yeah, hello Saturday 6 AM! ; )

    BTW..I am not saying that watching TCM makes you old. I am in love with anything that has Cary Grant starring in it and also am a major fan of the B&W version of Pride and Prejudice. I am just saying I tend to only watch it on Sundays…and when Summer Under the Stars is on :D
