You know you're "old" when...

I'm not old  (young 30's) but I've definitely passed that stage of knowing what's "cool" who's supposed to be "cute" etc. etc.

Here are 10 examples of my ultimate un-hipness:
1.  Tom's Shoes-  I tried them on.  They were not comfortable at all.  I've spoken to people who say that they're "the most comfortable shoes EVER!"  Hmmm.  I would have to wear me some Dr. Scholls inserts WITH gel to even be able to walk around the block in them.  

2.  Ryan Gosling-  Seriously?  He's the cute guy now?  Don't get it.  At all.   A friend and I discussed this and THE very next day, bigmama wrote about it on her blog.  She's always one step ahead of me!
Apparently he likes to eat his clothes while in pain.

3.  Was at the movies a few weeks back and there was a preview for a new Nicolas Sparks movie.  I thought that Zac Efron was Jared Leto.   But check this out.  I think that they're actually the same person.
4. Feathers as accessories-  When I see people wearing feathers in their hair, on earrings, etc all I can hear is this noise echoing in my head.

5.  Lately, the only time I get out to restaurants is on kids birthdays.  Tonight it's Red Robin for my daughters bday.  I can't tell you how excited I am that I don't have to make dinner.
6.  I have a hard time buying anything without a coupon.
7.  This commercial makes me laugh my head off.
8.  I don't get why any clothing from the 80's is making a comeback.

9.  Last time I walked into forever 21 marked the first time I thought almost everything was nast-to the-tee.
10.  At a dinner party a younger person told me I was on the old side of the table.  Then I accidentally threw a glass of water his direction. 

So that's that.  Tell me I'm not alone!


  1. OI, I am definitely with you on 1, 4, 8, 9, and probably 10. When I realize that tiny tots I babysat are driving and buying this crap and watching these movies, and basically making the decisions that sway the market, I am definitely feeling old. Btw, the link for the noise you hear when you see the feathers (I'm gonna take a stab that it was a rooster crowing...) just led to an amazon page for Kindle fires. I'm not sure if that was your intent, but I guess it wasn't. Sorry you feel un-hip, because the stuff you make on etsy is AWESOME! I'm a fan.
    Have a great day!

  2. oh, yeah, I never thought Gosling was cute. Until the movie Crazy, Stupid, Love. He's actually gotten a lot better looking. But I don't like the Nicholas Sparks movies, because I know someone I like is going to die in the end, and that just bums me out. Anyway, the picture of him eating his clothes is absurd. Thanks for sharing.

  3. oh yeah, I thought I said 7, too, I agree with 7.

  4. Molly! Thanks for the heads up on the link. It worked on my mac but not the PC. I fixed it ;)

  5. I laughed at every one of these! Especially the Zac Effron thing. I don't get his attraction at all. Because he looks like a baby to me!

    I'm getting old!


  6. Haha...I agree with these...except I can see why Mr. Gosling has one up. I saw him in a movie and I get it...kinda...
    So, you're good. From one woman in her 30's to another.
