This Seems Sad ... Or Just Wrong

You've Experienced 80% of Life
You have all of the life experience that most adults will ever get. And unless you're already in your 40s, you're probably wise beyond your years.

Please tell me that at 36, there is more than just 20% of life left to experience. Yeah. I've done most of the biggies, college, marriage, divorce, kids, a house, etc. And wise beyond my years? Well I sure hope so! But isn't there more? And why am I filling out a 20 question personality test at 4:30 in the morning? In Other News The Eagles signed Quinten Mikell. Whew! God, I thought we were going to let him get away! Now are we going to sign the waterboy? The Phils aren't sure about an opening day pitcher, but Todd Zolecki says it will likely be Freddy Garcia. I'm surprised. Even with all his troubles, isn't Brett Myers the ace of this staff? I saw this headline and thought, "Rosie had her mouth amputated?" But its a story about a dog named Rosie, not the crazy fat woman. Paul Holmgren has apparently figured out how to use the phone in his office. I was stunned at this trade. After all of the picks and building toward the future moves, why pick up a goaltender who is a free agent after the season? It's not lke he can save this team.

*** UPDATE ***

While he didn't bother to comment, My brother, Matt P, checked in personally to note that he has a much better blog post about the Flyers deal here at I'll give him his due - his is beter than mine.


And in Delaware County, when you can't fill a tough spot, go with the established crony. I don't know Nunn, but god, why would he want to get involved in the Chester-Upland mess? I don't agree with Thaddeus Kirkland much, but he has a point that there should be SOMEBODY who lives in Chester who is on the School District Board of Control.

i like garcia for opening day, if not Hamels.

there are a lot of family-oriented fans who aren't ready to accept Brett Myers again, so although under normal circumstances he'd be the Ace, he did something pretty bad last year and is paying for it. i think we'll see that Garcia is at least as good, if not better than Myers this year too.

well heck - if you look at the stats garcia is the guy. but as the new man in town, i'm not sure i would put him out there on day one. of course are you note, he did not get bobmed and beat up his wife on a street corner last season.

I've totally done that test before, and ended up exactly at my age.

Now, lets face it, that test was probably done by teenagers or some random 20's geek. So, I don't think it says very much, no. You still have plenty to look forward to. Watching your kids grow up, go to college and get married. Beating down your daughter's boyfriends. Maybe getting married again. Retirement and the flexibility to travel that that has wrapped up in it. And of course, there's always death... which is, as they say, the greatest adventure.

Now of course, if you were coming to Salem in two weeks, you'd REALLY have something to look forward to. :)
