Things We Should Probably Never Do Again After 50

February 13, 2013

With fate and that rearview mirror in mind, here are a few things beyond the limbo I'm quite probably beyond doing. So, join me in just saying no to:

Parkour. Jell-O shots. Karaoke after midnight. Karaoke after Jell-O shots. Trying to break a plank with your head. Mud wrestling (intentional). Crowd surfing to the mosh pit. Joining the circus. Joining the ashram. Drinking champagne from your son's girlfriend's shoe. Drinking champagne from your daughter's boyfriend's shoe. Drinking champagne from your own shoe. Xtreme bingo cruises. Collecting owls made of shells, frogs made of ceramic or lawn gnomes made of anything — really, really anything. Playing basketball in high heels. Throwing a wet T-shirt contest. Throwing a wet nightshirt contest. Getting publicly and verbally excited about the number of stamps in your passport, zeroes in your paycheck, capital letters before or after your name (unless they're H.R.H.), number of names on your phone-favorites list, number of people you could have married, the size of your acreage … or the size of your anything else. Explaining your personal role in the fact that your kids "never really got into any of that stuff …" Explaining your personal role in the fact that your kids got into an Ivy League college. Explaining your personal role in starting the rumor that Paul was dead. Single-spacing your Christmas letter. The Dougie. Giving up — ever.

    Blog: Can we please fix the Oscars?

    Summary:  Fun facts: The first-ever Oscar ceremony, held in 1929, ran a brisk 15 minutes. By contrast, the longest was in 2002, clocking in at a monstrous 4 hours and change. As usual, there are things I loved about it and things I didn't. Rather than be snarky or complain, I'll offer a few suggestions on how the organizers might bring the show into the 21st century.

    Winter storm drama

    Athens-Clarke County police officers responded to Pinewood Estates North on a 911 call concerning a heated domestic dispute. it reportedly was an argument over the lack of heat and food in a family's trailer and a woman was threatening to stab anyone who tried to take away her 7-month-old child. State patrol responded also, from their post nearby on U.S. Highway 29 North. The situation apparently was resolved. An officer reported he was driving the woman and infant to another home in Athens. read more
