[ - ] I"m definitely shopping more than I should and DH won't be too happy about it. BUT. I sold a few of my own things for some good $$$ which I feel like entitles me to some shopping...! Plus it's a great time to buy winter stuff for cheap before it all goes up. Ugh thanks for the confession. 6 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

[ - ] What is middle age IYO? I always thought it was roughly 35-45 or so since most don't live much past 90 but this doesn't seem to be what others think. What is it? 7 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I don't think "middle age" means the middle year of your life. I think it's a span of time between young adulthood and being more elderly. And I don't think 35 is it, but I might be wrong. [ Reply | More ]

I expect to live to 90 or so. Lots of people retire between 65 and 69 (I'm in biglaw and this is the norm). [ Reply | More ]

^ Also, I think of this as "middle age" as opposed to "old age." I wouldn't refer to a 68 year old as an "old person" or "elderly." [ Reply | More ]

I don't think middle age signifies that life is divided into halves any more than "the middle ages" were halfway between anything. It's more like state of being decidedly past life's beginnings and preparing to approach the aging process. I'm shooting solidly for 45-55 or 59 if you want to stretch it. Past 60 you're and it goes very rapidly for some as opposed to others. Past 75 everything's gravy if nothing else has gone wrong. [ Reply | More ]

I think this is an odd but telling way to put it. It is true, the NY Times is "not pro Israel" - nor should they be. They certainly aren't anti-Israel either. That makes their reporting less biased in my eyes. [ Reply | More ]
