realization

I realized something on December 31st

New Years Eve
we were at a friends house..
we turn on the Dick Clark thing.. 20 minutes before midnight
and I realized

GOD I'M OLD

Because I had no fucking clue
who the hell "the Jonas Brothers", "Miley Cyrus", "Fergie"
or "the Plain White T's "were
Who the fuck are these people? And at what point
did I become so clueless??

the only people I recognized was that fossil Dick Clark
and that annoying
bastard Ryan Seacrest..

I guess it's only a matter of time before I start talking about
arthritis... cholesterol medicine... and medic alert bracelets

*sigh*

Oh well..
Happy New Year
kids!

2008 is sure to be thrilling.

The first true slap of reality is when you find yourself riding in an elevator humming along to Zeplin in its Muzak form...

I'll send you a bottle of Geritol.

Good god, woman. Have you been living in a cave?

Miley is Bill Ray Cyrus' daughter. She plays on Hannah Montana on the Nickolodean or disney channel.

Fergie is like a Britney or Christina Aguilara. She was on the Mickey Mouse Club and in the Black Eyed Peas band. The Plain White T's are a band (hey there, Delila).

BUT I guess this means I pay too much fucking attention to the famous people?

I know what you mean, Jen. If I want to know who any of those people are, I just watch the Ed Sullivan Show. They're bound to be on eventually.

Mr. Fabulous said...

Damn girl, I am a lot older than you and I know all those artists! LOL

e.Craig said...

I'm with you, Jen, on "who's who." And I'm simply trying to grow old gracefully. ;-)

M@ said...

Those people ain't cool anyway. Sometimes, younger people are dorks.

I feel you. I knew Miley Cyrus and have heard of the Jonas Brothers (thanks to Meet the Robinsons), but the "Tshirt" band—along with some others—clueless.

Nobody™ said...

I know Miley, but only because I have a five year old girl living in the house. I think I've seen every episode of Hannah Montana. Twice.

Mel said...

I know who they all are and I am older than hell, so go figure.

What makes me feel old is when the girls I work with have no idea who Dick Clark is and why he is on every new Years!

VE said...

Boy, I remember back to the time I thought you were old....and now you are!

Dick Small said...

Pretty soon, you're also going to be talking about colonoscopys and the latest funeral you've been to. And how cold it is in the room, even though the thermostat's set to 95 and you're wearing a sweater..

Dick Small said...

Btw, in light of all of Teri's knowledge about Hannah Montana and Fergie, I've just lost aLOT of respect for the woman...
Besides, everyone knows Fergie's the Duchess of York, married to Prince Andrew in England. I don't know where the hell she comes up with this Hannah Montana stuff..

Teri said...

Dick, you're just jealous cause I know these things.

Dick Small said...

No, I'm disturbed because you know these things.

Happy New Year. Blogging by with BlogExplosion

Jim said...

I felt the same way, but then I realized it was simply a matter of loser bands given the camera's eye on crappy network new years celebrations. no one actually relevant ever does new years countdowns. :)

Lynda said...

My husband said, "Are those people suppose to be famous?" and I said, "Yeah, I think so, but I don't know who they are."

We are old right with you!

mixednut said...

I've heard of Fergie's "lady lumps", but I draw a blank on the rest.
Pass the Depends.

Amy said...

Don't forget about the motorized wheelchairs.

I swear the only reason I have a clue is because I have teenagers.

Special K said...

You're not OLD baby, you're in your sexual peak! Don't let anybody tell you any different!

dirty said...

I asked who the people were on the television...my children informed me and I felt dumb because I have always preached to them regarding how much cooler I am than them...I'm nothing short of an old liar.

I didn't even realize Dick Clark was still doing the NYE show. I watched Carson Daly and was certain that he got the job because if you squint your eyes just right, he vaguely resembles a young Dick Clark (i.e. big forehead, big teeth).
