For some of us, today, February 1st, may be the first day of our birthday month. Lots of us, I bet! And certainly none more in particular than any others. Happy birthday month, if this applies to you! It’s a leap year, so you get one extra day! How exciting for everyone. And for those of us who are beginning their month-long birthday celebration today, some may be feeling a bit scared about how time continues to race towards the finish line like it’s in a super huge hurry, and you can’t believe that it’s already your birthday month again, and when is it just going to SLOW DOWN so you can tell enough people your age that when you get to the next age it feels like it’s fine and appropriate that you’re turing that age. Because you’ve gotten telling people your other age out of your system, I guess? Listen. Getting old, like some of us are, often decreases your ability to think in ways that make sense. But the little old lady featured in this video has found away around that! And would you believe me if I told you the secret to a healthy mind at an old age is sitting RIGHT IN THE FRONT POUCH OF YOUR JANSPORT?

Well, you certainly aren’t having any problems staying VERY CUTE at your 100-year age, lady! Maybe you’re on to something. Let’s all get a Nintendo DS before the age monster comes closer and our bodies get tired and break down and we can’t run away from it anymore and then it consumes us! (Via Neatorama.)

  1. Some of us aren’t going to say Happy Birthday Month, because maybe some of us didn’t get a Happy Half-Birthday 3 days ago, and some of us are still a little bit bitter.

  2. i hope to god that thing never runs out of batteries….the nintendo.

  3. And she gets to still feel sexy when she goes to Game Stop.

  4. What she failed to address when she said she can’t remember things the next day is that she is black-out drunk, constantly.

  5. February Birthday Monsters represent!!! (confession: I still have problems sometimes spelling February even though it’s the month I was born in)

  6. Thank you, Mario, but our VaboRub is in another RiteAid.

  7. “See? This shit is good for my brain! Would you just get off my back?” – emotionally distant husbands and boyfriends

  8. And yet my father still struggles with this thing we call “a mouse”.

    • My dad is 62 and is afraid of learning how to send a text message on his flip phone. I

      • I’m 25 and afraid of learning how to send a text message on my flip phone.

        • As long as flip phones are available, I will own a flip phone. Partly because I don’t want to accidentally call someone ever, let alone while I’m singing along to some song in my car. I know there are locks on those touch screens, but why have I been called accidentally so many times by other people then?

          Also, I am on the computer all day at work and for a somewhat excessive amount of time at home. I do not need to check my email or update my facebook once I finally step away from the screen.

          My flip phone also has Tetris. Keep your fancy app, iPhones!

  9. Cool Nintendo Superbowl ad!

  10. Kelly, remember when we went to tour Nintendo? Back when Packy made us call him “Sonic”?

  11. So, I actually went to bed at 9 o’clock one day this week. Now, I’ve learned that David Letterman’s been on the air for 30 years and a 100 year old stays up until 10 playing her Nintendo.

    I don’t know what’s happening to me, but I think I should have taken the blue pill.

  12. I am treating February 1 as most treat January 1. I have slacked on every resolution I made for myself – not just New Year’s resolutions by the way. Every time it’s the 1st of the month and usually every Monday, I vow to make changes. This either happens for two days or not at all.

    Happy Birthday Month to the rest of you!

  13. I’m not sure if she should adopt me or I should adopt her. She had me at “wonderful.” I shall pack my NDS knitted cozy:

    Then I head straight to the foot of her lovely floral wing chair.

  14. I’m totally an old lady in training b/c I have this on my Ravelry queue.
