Fuck... Does This Mean I'm Gonna Live to Be 1,000?

In this morning's New York Times' Health section, the news I've been dreading:

"A Surprising Secret to a Long Life: Stay in School."

I took my last Russian class at VSU in May... At 50.

I'm so screwed. Eternal life is not what it's cracked up to be!

Well at least I can look forward to some curmudgeonly discussions with a 125 year old Tom on my 100th birthday. Did the article mention and connection between loan deferment and long life? I mean seriously, if I can cheat the system by staying in school in order to bypass repaying my loans I definitely would. The problem would be the cyclical nature or the ordeal: stay is school to bypass loan repayment; being a perennial student leads to immortality; immortality leads to perpetually dodging loan repayments; rinse, repeat.

ps. random chat with the guitarist of ye mighty Tron of Tallahassee revealed his adoration for Peach of Immortality and his attendance of a show in ATL(?) where he believed "two hermaphrodites were on-stage cutting themselves"??? After which I informed them that had he and his band mates "stayed" to watch the squelching ensue he would have seen you perform again two decades(?) later.

There was definitely devil makeup going on back in the day, but no hermaphrodites (at least to my knowledge), and no self-mute action. Tron-lad was dreamin'.

he did mention the make-up.

the weirdest part of it all though was that i was in the middle of discussing "bending a wireless doorbell for my friend Tom," with someone else when he interjected adding the surname "Tom Smith? From Peach of Immortality???"

random association mind-fuck for the 2nd of '07.
