I've always wondered about that phrase tho. There are times when I feel
seventy and they are generally caused by a three year old.

My wife, being a canadian (ex) punk in her mid 30s, can't understand my
fondness for all this 80s electro pop stuff (I played her Blancmange the
other day and she was politely bemused by them).

 I went to see the Cure with another canadian friend a few years back (same
age as my wife - 34) and realised when Robert Smith said something about
'doing this for 25 years now' that I'd first seen the Cure 24 years
previously. I think that was depressing.
