Did you watch "How I Met You Mother" last night. They are around 30. The Murtaw list is from the Lethal Weapon movies. "I'm getting too old for this s&&*"

So what are you getting too for? Examples from last night: Getting a piercing, going to a rave, crashing on a fouton at your friend's house.

Hmm, getting colored hair extensions. I had mentioned about a pink color in my hair - and DH said "you're too old for that" "you are a mother of 3"...

Oh gosh, definitely too old to crash on a futon!

That was a good episode. I love that Barney was defeated by Ted's Murtaugh list!

Having full fledged conversations via text messaging. I don't know why, but something about more than a quick "I'm on the way" via text message DRIVES ME INSANE. If it's going to be more than a one liner, I actually call (unless it's a situation where I know the other party can't have a vocal conversation).

I also think I'm too old for a belly button piercing - but I still would like to get one when I get to goal weight!

Great one. I'm too old for that stuff!!

May I stick my 48-yr-old nose in here :D and say if you want it...you should get it! Even if you never display it. You will know you have it and it's your nice little secret. I got mine when my tum was nice enough to show if I wanted, and that was two years ago.

I also know a lawyer lady, who must be around my age, who rocks the best haircut, dark, short and spiky, with these incredible deep magenta streaks. And yes, she's a successful lawyer, LOL!

VermontMom -- Is that profile pic you??? If so, there's NO WAY you can be in your 40's! You look fab! (At 36 I'm probably too old to say "FAB!" but it fits!)

heh, I got my navel pierced like 10 years ago, when I was in my mid-30's. I wasn't thin by any means, but I really wanted it done so in I went. I murmured something about, "Sorry about my fat tummy" and the girl who did the piercing said, "Bellies of all shapes are beautiful." Cool, huh! Anyway, I still have mine. Nobody knows about it except for the very select few :) and that's the way I like it!

I don't think anyone is too old for that. But I DO think I'm too old to go dancing with my gal-pal at the club where all the 21 year olds go dancing. I feel like the token Mom when I go there. Booo!

I think I'm too old:

to not wear some kind of makeup out of the house. :lol: (Mom always says, at least put lipstick on!)

to show the naval ring in public, if I was to get one.

to wear a mini/short skirt (more than just above the knee)

to have multi-colored hair (although I believe that for certain personalities, it's fine!)

I am too old to stay up late at bars...even not drinking! Getting up and taking care of the kids a few hours later is not for me!!

I am also feeling like a "dirty old woman" when I look at some of the younger actors (ex Zac Efron) and feel "crushy" on them!! I remember one interview where he was asked if they had a nickname for all of the older women who liked him, and he said, "Yeah, we call them Moms..."

I am also too old to wear ultra low rise jeans...although I am hoping after the last few pounds come off that I won't be too old to wear a bikini!!

Yeah, nobody wants to see me in low-rise jeans with my muffin top.

I'm too old to....

Wear low-rise jeans and a thong (yuck!)

We don't want to see *anybody* in that. Well, I can't speak for men, they might wanna see it. :)

Which is why I put that on my I'm too old list...to which I will add, I'm too old to stay up all night and go to work, etc...

I'm too old for a side ponytail with a scrunchie and super high bangs..lol

Hmmm I do want to get my navel pierced again when I loose some weight.

What do I think I'm too old for? Well I think most everyone is too old for those super low rise jeans. I don't even think skinny girls look good in them.

And those sweatpants or shorts with words on the butt. I wince when I see kids wear them.

Every now and then its fun to go out. Hubby and I had a really nice date nice just us and stayed in DC for the night in September. But I can't drink like that all the time. I get hangovers too bad now and well with kids drinking like I used to isn't practical. : P
