The handy thing about going grey is that I can dye my beard interesting colors without going to the trouble of bleaching it first.

Age 40 is technically “middle-aged”, but I prefer to live in a more high-tech era anyway.

39. In cat years, that’s 173.

Year 38: The authorities continue to be deceived by my clever disguise as a responsible adult.

Age 37:

Marriage: happy.
Friends: lots.
Cats: adorable.
Books: lots and lots.
Job: good.
Still not King. But really, why would I want the stress of a job like “monarch” anyway?

I’ve arrived at age 36, mostly intact, living in one of the most cosmopolitan regions of one of the wealthiest nations on the planet, and getting paid to do engineering work that allows do-overs at little more cost than time and electricity. Life is good.

As always, if there is to be singing to commemorate this milestone, please make sure it’s the Viking Birthday Dirge. I appreciate the efforts of my more dedicated friends to memorize the whole thing, but since most folks don’t do so, please keep the verses to:

Death, destruction, and despair
People dying everywhere

May the cities in your wake
Burn like candles on your cake

So you’ve aged another year
Now you know that Death is near

If nominated, I will run; if elected, I will serve.
