CHERRY SAYS: I have an Aunt that I would give velvet to. Actually I wouldn't give it to her for herself, I would give it to one of her family members, so every time they would wear it, she would think of me.
My aunt can not stand the touch of velvet, and if you are wearing it and you touch it in front of her, it is like fingers on a chalk board for her. That is why every time I go to any family party, I always wear velvet to it.
Can you tell she is my favorite Aunt??!!
JONATHAN: LOL...Cherry, the question was about a CD, but I found your response pretty funny. So I ran it anyway. :-)
NICOLE SAYS: Got my practical joke juices flowin now. =D I would make a copy of my Slipknot album and put it inside a theraputic calming music cover. Then I would give it to my ex boyfriend, who practices hypno- therapy, as a way of a peace offering and then wait for his next client to show up...smile sweetly and say "bye, have fun".
BETH SAYS: Oh, this should be a "made" for CD, but if only one can be chosen, then any CELINE DIONE because she just SUCKS.
(BOTH I mean, just to clarify) To whom would I give this glorious piece of shit? My ex's wife Amy, the "sainted" bitch from hell.

SHAWN SAYS: Well, that's easy...my ex-husband. He's now a pious, overbearing, rude, religious, born again Christian.
He thinks he's God walking on Earth. I hate everything he stands for. This is what I'd give him for Xmas...in fact...I'm burning him a copy right now! Thanks, Jon for the great idea!

PHIL SAYS: Oh gosh...I'd send my parents the Steve Vai CD, "Passion and Warfare".
It's chock full of good tunes and they just refuse to accept electric guitars into their world of music. I'd do it just because they wouldn't accept it normally, but as a gift they'd be obligated to throw it in the CD player once in a while, keep it on the CD shelf and dust it off once in a while, and maybe, just maybe, start liking it.
How odd it would be to be teaching my parents about music. This is a good question-too many people I'd give too many CDs to for too many reasons. But my parents would be the first.

Q of THE WEEK "THE DEVIL MADE ME DO IT-LOL" continues
TINA SAYS: You are too good at this stuff my friend! I got a good laugh out of this one instantly! I've had this done to me!
On my fortieth birthday my brother (who surely has at least a million artists stored in his brain) presented me with a pretty package with a CD.
Inside, nothing unusual being is he, to me, is the knowledge of music and I have aspired to keep on his level for...all my life, so when I pull- ed the CD out and looked at it and then at him and back at the CD, trying not to give away the fact I had no clue who this was, I didn't know what to say or do!
All I could do was look stupid and he played it out for too long, never letting me know that I shouldn't be just thrilled at receiving such a fine gift (and acted like I should be ashamed at not knowing such a classic)!
I was relieved when he let go of the joke! I felt beneath him once again!
Well anyway...here is an image (above) of what that CD was (not to take away from the artist by no means)...I was just ignorant to their existance!
LAMIA SAYS: hahaha that's great. ^_^!! I would like to send my "Heavy" CD from our W single 3Chic and Heavy" to my last Japanese boss. ^^ Because of the song "Adieu patron"... Why ? I let you guess...read the translation of my lyrics;
Good bye Boss , Good bye Boss , Good bye Boss
It�s always the same thing and the same speech, in any case, you care just about your money The capitalism has enriched fools, stupid like you who can�t change the world You�re omnipresent, you are everywhere, in my dreams, you bitch me out Hey, leave me alone, I�m not in the office And don�t call me during my family diner
Good bye Boss , Good bye Boss , Good bye Boss
Listen, I�m gonna say something to you, before you leave definitively �god damn, who do you think you are, Lost Go-Getter, you�re just a piece of dog shit
Your pride, your threats, your lying I had enough I�m gonna leave here, I�m gonna live my life I�ll spread my wings and I�ll take off Your pride, your threats, your lying we've all had enough We�re gonna leave here, your kids will go way And you will end up alone
Good bye Boss , Good bye Boss , Good bye Boss

BILLIE SAYS: Hey Jonathan, How are ya mate?! This one is somewhat easy. I have a really good mate "Jemma" who absolutely abhors Christmas carols, and more so if they're classics by like likes of Bing Crosby and Dean Martin etc. So with the Christmas spirit in mind I would present her with a CD which consists of golden oldies carols.
I know she'd find it all in good humour, then promptly frisbee the darn thing to next year. hahaha Gotta love the girl!
HAZEL SAYS: Us comedians are never funny. Sorry - when I have more time I'll give showing off my wit for free a go. (;-) ).
However, the only sorts of CD's I generally buy to watch people's little faces crumple in disbelief are those with pan-pipes (last year I bought my brother the best of Abba in Pan Pipes) .
And, my link points to one. I thought they didn't let people on the internet who didn't click on links or something?
I thought that's what the question was asking! sigh Hazel x

PIL SAYS: That's SO easy! I would of course give anobody, who deserved it, the Peter Andr� & Jordan song "A Whole New World" (how it really sounded) for so obvious reasons, that it speaks (read: Whines!) for itself. Just follow this white rabbit:

VERONICA SAYS: Aye Jonathan! Love your site by the vay. Well, I have to say I would probably get my bloke who is an old punk and bassist for a punk band, like Will Smith Big Willie style, because of his deep abhorrence toward R & B and rap.

GILZ SAYS: Hi Jonathan. I would have to buy my Hubby (Dave) a really cheesey Christmas CD as he can't stand seasonal xmas songs as at this time of year. They take over the airwaves and regardless of where you shop they always play them.
That's why I have the greatest ever Christmas album ever. I can't let my daughter get away without knowing these songs.
FEATHERS SAYS: I would have to give a CD single to my ex-boyfriend Dean who used to take longer than me to get ready to go out, preened his hair to perfection and used half a can of hairspray.
Went to bed at night with a gum shield full of tooth whitener, put blue eye drops in his eyes every 2 minutes to make them sparkly white etc etc etc.
And, when he was out he used to gyrate on the dance floor and flash a smile whiter than white to all who were looking whilst throwing his arms around and rotating them around each other like a helicopter. Everyone who didn't know him thought he was gay and my sister and mum especially used to tease him and his nickname "Pearly Queen" came from sitting in the cinema one night and seeing the trailor by "Pearl & Dean".
So the CD for the Pearly one would have to be ABBA's "Dancing Queen". :)
PS: he is also on My Space if you ever want to see the poser for yourself!! (We are still mates -kind of, he's my best mate in his dreams and I tolerate it)

(1984) as Tony Danza's saccharine sweet daug- hter, Samantha Micelli, a kid whose native Brooklyn accent rivaled her TV dad's. In order for Alyssa to accept the gig, the Milano family had to uproot and move 3,000 miles to Hollywood. Had a best-selling excercise video in 1988 called Teen Steam. Alyssa has seven tattoos. She has a sacred heart on her behind, a fairy kneeling in grass on her hip, rosary beads on her back, an angel on her left ankle, an Orobous (a snake biting its own tail) on her right wrist, an "om" on the other wrist and a ga- rland of flowers around her right ankle.

THERESA SAYS: Okay Jonathan...here goes: For Christmas I would love to give the man I broke up with today the CD "Carnival of Carnage" by ICP. I would especially like the one song dedicated to him "Redneck Ho".
I think it kinda goes with the spirit of Christmas and all. You know that part about "Bitch use a Ho".
Now, I don't proclaim to be an ICP fan nor a juggalette. I guess I lost my sense of humor somewhere when I found out he picked up a 'Red- neck Ho' in a bar last Saturday night because his lil pony could not stay in the barn. Poor baby.
Anyways, he confronted me today only a few days after his pony got lose and told me of his undying love and asked me to marry him and he promises to be commited. What a loser! So, anyways I have to say this...better to lose a lover than to love a loser. Have a redneck Christmas...Ho Ho and Ho's.

DIANNE SAYS: An ex (who's 30) sent me your post about being 60 and mid-adolescence (or whatever you called it).
I can really identify because surely I'm not the only 54 year old with the Subhumans in my car CD player (or am I??).
Some of us grow up differently, I guess. While much has changed with age (there's this thing about knowing, even tho I'm still in a single digit dress size, that a mini skirt may not be the wisest choice, for instance) but in our hearts we stay the same in so many ways.
I will continue to do what I enjoy, even if that means I go see Sepultura instead of Yanni. (besides, Paulo is a friend, and I've never met Yanni) Anyway, I enjoyed what you said.
Must say, you have a beautiful family (wife, son, grandchild...) You rock!! Regards, Dianne JONATHAN: Thank you Dianne. Liked your answer.
MONIKA SAYS: First off, Jonathan, your right! You do look damn good for your age!! I'm sure your show is great too.
What do I think I will be like when Im 60? I've got another 20 (or 40 if you concider my wishful age of 21 and holding). Hopin' I'm still rockin' with the best of em, whether it be here above the dirt, or down in the dirt with em!!
A musician's life never ends, it just keeps movin' on...and on...and on!!
So 21, 38, or 60...your only as old as you feel, and if the music is still rockin', thats where I'll be!!
Love Always, Monika

Q of THE WEEK: "MIDDLE ADOLESCENCE� is almost over. Tomorrow is last day. Scroll down for all the answers
CHRISTA SAYS: At 60, I hope I look and have the energy of like a lot of women I see or work with.
I admire these women and men that are this age and are still active and out there going on with their lives. It is GREAT watching them in acton.
Also...I hope I can still manage the mosh pit like I did last weekend at the Danzig, Asesino concert. I love to attend concerts and handle the crowd...I think that's what makes me feel young and vibrant.
I hope this helps...and have a great day Mr. JL World. I love you and your show and your son Russell is awesome. (just like early morning cartoons for meee) LOL
MARION SAYS: Dear Jonathan, well, when I'm 60 (if the planet hasn't killed itself by then), I hope I'm still the same person (though wiser) and haven't been jaded too much by life.
I hope to be married to my soulmate, have children and grandchildren. I imagine feeling the way I do now which is 18 years old, though frust- rated coz my body won't do what I want it to.
I will still be rescuing rabbits and any other helpless furry creature that I can and I'll still be obsessed with music and dance round my kitchen in my vest and pants to Madness, Beatles etc.- and dance with my dog.
I hope that's an answer for you...it's quite hard to imagine 24 years on. You don't look 60. It's a number not you.
CHERRY! SAYS: 60?? Are you serious?? There is no way, you look way too hot to be a 60 year old. Must be all the Tatts.
JONATHAN: Thanks Cherry, nice way to avoid the question. -lol ;-)

They went through several names, including Childish Intentions and Stricken, before settling for Evanescence. They were signed by Big-Wig Enterprises in 2000 and released "origin". Later in 2002, they then got a record deal with Wind-Up along with former band-mate David Hodges and cr- eated "Fallen," a 6x platinum selling album, which led to the international suc- cess that they are today. Is named after the 70s song "Amie". Band won the awards for Best New Artist & Best Hard Rock Performance for Bring Me To Life, at the 2004 Grammy Awards. Her favorite artists are Tori Amos, Nirvana, Mic- hael Jackson, NIN (Trent Reznor), Bj�rk and Coldplay.

Q of THE WEEK: Continues. Scroll down for all answers
HONEY SAYS: I am 43, and I know that when I was a teenager that would have been really old. ha ha
Now 60 would definitely have been well passed the expiration date back then.
We are so cruel when we are teens, but in all fairness, it's not cruelty really, its immaturity.
60 just isn't old any more. People are less likely to run out and get blue rinses like they did when I was a kid. It is all just a state of mind, if we have good health at 60 then we are laughing because we have that much more knowledge and can still manage physically, our minds if they stay healthy don't change, we still feel young, we just get older on the outside, but our inner beauty never fades, and if we are beautiful on the inside that beats any beauty on the outside!
I would hope that I would remain healthy enough to not be a burden to my children, to be able to enjoy more freedom and do more traveling and cont- inue my creative pursuits.
I would expect to remain very pro-active as regards child abuse and domestic violence issues, and just to be able to be there for my kids and grandkids when they need me will always be an honor, no matter how old I get.
I hope you still feel good about yourself Jonathan, remember! Age is just a number, it does not have to be a nightmare, we just need to be positive and accept the inevitable. Live for today.
We are Blessed to have had the opportunity to live, do everything to enjoy it. No matter what the age.
JEN SAYS: Good one!! I am getting ready to turn 40 in a few days.
I am no different really than I was when I was 21. Just a little smarter. At 60, I will be doing the same thing I am now. Age is just a number. I will never grow old. Party better than the young ones. Now, just as long as I can keep looking like I am 30. It will all be great.

Q of THE WEEK: "MIDDLE ADOLESCENCE� continues (see yesterday for full question)
KAT SAYS: Hmm. Usually people ask "where do you see yourself in 5-10 years". At age 60 (now at 35)??
Probably not where most people see themselves at 60. I'm a kindred spirit like yourself. I will still be loving music, traveling the world (hopefully 2nd time retired), creating magic in the garden and in the kitchen, throwing great parties as always and spending it with the ones I love!
Could there be more, maybe. Success (to me) is not measured by the wealth of your pocket book, but the wealth of your soul!
JANE SAYS: Hi Jonathan. Well, wow get you 60 and all !! You don't look it, and what is so cool about you is that you are still doing what you love...can't take that away from you.
I hope you have a wonderful celebration and just remember 60 is the new 50's. lol I will be saying 30 is the new 30's in a couple of years don't worry. I have already booked my celebration in Vegas baby!!! For a week of drunken antics. lol Jane xx
SHIMMER SAYS: Well, I'm 43 now. I hope that at 60 I have grandchildren, so that I can teach them to help me garden and be grateful for their heritige. I inherited 6 acres of family land and have a goal of turning most of it into a walk through garden for future generations to enjoy. Theres alot of history I am now reserching, as my family has now own this place for 130 years.
I often find myself day dreaming about sitting on the porch with grandchildren around me. Asking me a million questions about this place.
I'll still be making handmade jewerly and probably become know as the strange little old lady with all the cats, from down the road.
KATHALEEN SAYS: LOL. I love it when you make me think. LOL.
Age 60 the year would be 2031. I would like to be on a beach sipping my tea and enjoying my life. I hope to be retired from the jewelry business by then and have my own little shop where I would sell and make candles incense and bath stuff and delivering my goods in that flying car they promised us by the year 2000.
I would hope that I would stiil be able to be as active as I am right now and have the enjoyment in knowing that these are probably my best years.
I would look forward to spending my time doing what I enjoy doing and have the ability to make it happen.
I wouldn't want to be 60 years old, but 60 years young.
December 11 Samantha Maloney The former Hole drummer was born in New York City in 1975. The band broke up in 2002. Sam filled in for Motley Crue drummer, Randy Castillo for Motley Crue's Max- imum Rock 2000 tour. Many Motley Crue fans thought that Maloney did such a good job on the drums that she was nicknamed Sammy Lee after the Crue's original drum- mer, Tommy Lee. In 2004 she started her own company for drumming gear called www.drumsexy.com. It will be interesting if Courtney Love ever puts the band back together for another go around?

Q of THE WEEK: �MIDDLE ADOLESCENCE�
So, I turned 60 in early December. I�m feelin� great. Anyone who has listened to me on the radio knows I rock with the best of �em. And, modestly I think I also look pretty damn good for my age. :-)
So, my question to you is; Picture yourself at age 60. What do you think you will be like, feel like, and what you will be doing with your life?
*This Q continues from last week and will conclude on Friday.
TRACY SAYS: Well, I'm 39 at the moment but when I reach the age of 60 I hope I'm a hip granny. I freak my kids out all the time, when I'm 60 it'll be my grand- childrens turn to be freaked out. I reckon that I'll still wear my DM's, mini skirts and fishnet tights when I go out!!!!!!!!!! That should freak EVERYONE out!!!!!! I can't wait!!! Love to you and your family Tracy xx
TINA SAYS: Oh wow, this is the best one yet! Lets see, I'm 42 now and still living in my 20's (trust me my kids make issue with this daily!)
Sure I know I'm gonna be 60 one day and I hope I'm still rockin'. Of course I have to see what the wear and tear of time and the constant gut wrenching termoil of guiding my three teenage daughters, age 16, 17 and 18, will do to my mind-set!
My oldest daughter just up and moved to Chicago (never been away from me!)
And, my husband has been in Iraq for two years, so that chips away at my spunk, but I think keepin' on with the things that shaped me as a person when I was younger will define me when I'm older! Not to mention help with my sanity.
Age is just a number not an issue! Dont ya think?
JONATHAN: Yes Tina, age is only a number. Although I think the war in Iraq has turned into a terrible tragedy for our country, I 100% support all of our troops,and wish your husband would be back in your arms much sooner than later. My prayers are with you.
CYNDI SAYS: Happy Birthday Jonathan! My answer for the Question of the week is; I hope to be just like my Grandmother was and you of course Jonathan...feeling good and sexy and alive at 60!
At 43 now, I feel great and feel I've taken good care of myself so far hope to continue!
My Grandmother is 79 and in the convalescent home for 3 years now with a memory loss due to water on the brain. But right up until she became sick and had to go there she was the tops and hot and alive!
She told me when she was like 65...that she still did the housework naked on Saturday mornings.
I was like..."OK Grandma some things people shouldn't see." She said "No matter how old you are, there's always 'someone' who wants to see you" and then she winked at me.
Ya know...I will never forget that and I will never forget her way and I want to be that way and think that way and I live for her now.
She was my strength and my idol and she was so sexy in her day (my real Grandfather died when my Mother was pregnant), when she met my Step Grandfather. She worked across the street as a secretary from where he worked at the garage . She got up on the sill in the big picture window dancing with sexy go go boots on for him! She wore hot pants to mow the lawn and the kids at school said "THAT'S your GRANDMOTHER?????" I was so proud of her!
So yes, at 60 I see myself with the same free spirit as I have now, as I have learned and grown from my Grandmother's life and free spirit as an example. That life can be cut short all of a sudden, so live now to your fullest and don't stop and don't take it for granted~!
December 8 Teri Hatcher Who is the most popular "Desperate Housewive"? Teri Lynn Hatcher hands down. Teri was born in 1964 in Sunnyvale, California. She spent her childhood dancing and fishing with her father. While at Fremont High School, she was captain of the Featherettes, a dance team which had the look of regular cheerleaders, with the exception of the large head dresses they would wear.

She, however, auditioned and won the role of the singing and dancing mermaid for the television series, "The Love Boat" (1977). She went on to play Penny Parker, a ditsy but sweet-hearted struggling actress in "MacGyver" (1985). When that show ended, she auditioned for and won the role of smart and savvy Lois in "Lois & Clark: The New Adven- tures of Superman" (1993), saying that she didn't want to be stuck with the pretty airhead image she had acquired as Penny.#3 of Sci-Fi's Sexy 50, by Femme Fatales magazine (1997). Screen-tested for the part of Jamie Buchman in "Mad About You" (1992), opposite Paul Reiser. Lost the part to Helen Hunt.

Q of THE WEEK: �MIDDLE ADOLESCENCE� (Scroll down to Monday December 4th for all this weeks answers) *Due to response-this Q will continue on Monday December 11
KIMMIE SAYS: Oh Shit-- that's a scary question. I wish we were guaranteed our next breath!
Sooo let's see-- if I make it to 60- I hope I make it to 69! lol
Just kidding! Ummm I hope to be rockin' my weary bones out til I can't walk anymore! I certainly hope I don't follow in my my mothers foot steps and remain a single old woman-- but-- that might just be my fate!! lol
I wanna be as KEWL and good looking as U are when I am 60! Although-- U know-- my mom looks pretty young for her age-- soo if I do remain a single old woman-- at least I won't look my age!! lol
But what good is that gonna do me huh? I hope by age 60 I will have made a big difference in somebody's life. I hope I am ROCKIN the world like Mick Jagger and and some of those other old farts !!
Who says U gotta be in your 20's to make music FUN!! NOT ME!! The older the better-- and the wiser-- we are!
Let me go have another cocktail and think about this one some more!~ lol U'r fun Jonathan-- I hope to be just like that- FUN FUN FUN!~
MARIE SAYS: Jonathan you certainly do know how to rock on your show!
Well, I am 43 and I still feel like I am 25, so I would guess by the time I am 60 I will still feel 40...lol
My family has been blessed with youthful genes so I am told. Just like my mother 64 and grandmother at 81 are still doing today what they have done all their lives, I will still be rock-in, shopping, drinking and dinning, dancing and whatever else I love doing now!
Hell I am already a sexy grandmother, so I will probably be a sexy great grandma at 60!
:) You can't change a young heart!

Q of THE WEEK: "MIDDLE ADOLESCENCE� (scroll down to Monday December 4th for full Q)
DINAH SAYS: I'm 46 and not going to change. I look great for my age and I'm not slowing down. Young spirit. So at 60, the same. I lived a full life. Not stopping my music. I'll be dressing in black and dyeing my hair. I'm dead so I don't age.
JONATHAN: Dinah, I've seen you perform, you ain't dead yet. Far from it!
VICKI SAYS: Yeah I'd noticed it was your birthday soon honey. Happy birthday when it comes! So your a fun loving outgoing Sagitarius are you? That figures.
Well, let's see...when I reach 60 years old, after spending most of my life slogging my guts out in the pharmacy business for 50 hours a week and then spending most of my weekends up all night partying.
I really hope I'll find it within me to eventually calm down and i'll retire to a small, thatched, white cottage in Cornwall with ivy round the door and a beautiful apple orchard outside with a view of the sea!
I'll get up every morning and feed my cat, and the horses, have some coffee then take the dogs for a long walk along the beach. I'd probably spend most of the rest of my days reading in dusty old book shops and painting and riding my horses, though i also love to travel so that would have to be a large part of my life too, if I have enough money that is!
It's a rather romantic, idealistic look and my life in the future and probably the opposite to how my life will actually turn out.
But, hey I can dream can't I?
Anyway, all my love on your birthday honey! Vicki Xxxx
DANA SAYS: I am only half your age, I turn 30 in a few months. Looking back to the age of the early twenties, I thought I learned already so much in the hard-life dept. that I know more than other people at my age. And nowadays, only a couple of years later, there were so many things I had to learn again, experiences I had, options I had to refuse etc. etc. that it shows you never stop changing.
And now I imagine adding another 30 years of experiences to it. I think I would do all I can that younger ones could profit from what I know and what I have learned. You change so much in life, I am curious how I will be at the age of 60. Only a couple of years ago I couldn�t even think about some changes that happened in my life right now.
I think I am still under construction, and hope you will be around for the next 30-years, Jon, that I will be able to answer you the question while looking back.
JONATHAN: Well Dana, I would love to be around 30-years from now-but that would put me at 90. Hmmm. Good thought though. lol
TAMERA SAYS: I just turned 40 in November. No one really believes me, and I keep getting told I look anywhere from 25-35. So, I hope I look like I do now when I'm 60!!!
I'm sure I'll still be feeling like I do now...with my fingers! ;)
Seriously, I refuse to entirely grow up. Gotta stay young at heart and live every day like it's your last. And that's what I intend to do...even when I'm 60!
Great "Q", Jonathan...but then you always do!!! And yes, YES you do still look damn good!!! Keep rockin' and doin what ya do!!!
Take Care, Tamera xxx
JONATHAN: Aww...thanks T. :-)

C-ROD SAYS: I'll be kicked back on a beach in FL in a little drinking town with a fishing problem. A rum and coke in one hand a nice size doobie in the other, just chilling, watching waves roll in...wha...hu... oh time to wake up?
Ok, I'll probably be about the same as I am now, with a few more grey hairs and winkles. Working some crappy job for almost enough to get by. Once a year I'll manage to go to a concert by an old favorite and every year I'll feel it more and more the day after.
Wow that sucked, I'm going back to dreamworld now!

NEW Q of THE WEEK: �MIDDLE ADOLESCENCE�
So, I turn 60 early December. I�m feelin� great. Anyone who has listened to me on the radio knows I rock with the best of �em. And, modestly I think I also look pretty damn good for my age. :-)
So, my question to you is; Picture yourself at age 60. What do you think you will be like, feel like, and what you will be doing with your life?
*I will NOT print your current age-unless you specifically put it in your response.
ANNA SAYS: Thanks for giving a rats arse what I might think and I'm going to tell you the truth honey.
I don't think I'll be here and I truley believe that. If I do it will be a fucking miracle. Urring on the side of good luck I'll go with living in Phuket, playing pool at the rock bar and listenening STILL to the rock anthems, old and new.
ALEX SAYS: Wow Jonathan, I sure would never have placed you as old as 60. You are looking fab hun. (Thx-JL)
Well, I'm a great believer of you only ever being as old as you feel. In my case I'm also told I don't look as old as I actually am, as I turn 40 in February, but still very much have the mind of a clubbing 20-year old babe, lol.
The trick is not to allow society to tell you what age you are, so again I expect I will still be giving those teenage clubbers a run for their money when I turn 60.
Well done Jonathan, leave the rocking chair for the old guys, for the only rocking you will be doing for ever more is on the radio hunny. Luv, Alex. xxx
I have already decided that I am gonna live to be 100, so @ 60 I will be thinking just past the halfway marker. Whether or not I will know anyone by then or myself would be the only thing that could be a downfall.
I have to walk back into a room sometimes to jog my memory for the reason why I left it. LOL.
I think me and my sister will probably be still wearing trainers and baseball caps and doing the neighbours heads in with our loud music (that will be even louder due to the damage we have caused our ears by listening to it so loud now).
Don't worry 'bout the 100 candles on the cake. Could be a bit pricey. LOL XXX
