Guess who else is turning forty this year?

Sesame_street Sesame Street! And I am so not ashamed to say that despite having no children in the house, I still watch it regularly. Technically though, since no one really has a job on Sesame Street, they should have been evicted years ago.

The Internet is also forty this year. Who knew it’d been around for this long? Well the geeks knew. And for the record, that’s why they now control the world.

A number of celebrities have turned or will be turning forty this year. It’s funny when you read some of the names. You find yourself saying things like “I didn’t know she was that old?” Or, “I remember when he was just a kid!” And then you remember you’re the same age.

Here’s a short list of “celebrities” (male and female) turning forty this year. Read a more exhaustive list here.

  • Renee Zellweger
  • Cate Blanchett
  • Jason Priestly (OMG, remember Brandon on 90210 – the real 90210? – not the child’s play version they’ve got today)
  • Tonya Harding – Remember her? She bashed the hell out of Nancy what’s her face’s knee
  • Jay Z – Or Joe Camel as he’s affectionately known around these parts
  • Mariah Carey
  • Jesse L. Martin
  • Jennifer Aniston

    Sesame Street has made its indelible mark on my entire existence!! There is no part, no area, no section of my identity that hasn't been shaped by that show. LOL I might be with some friends and someone might say something really off the wall and I'll sing, 'one of these things…is not like the others…” and everyone instantly identifies and laughs. Or I'll see some crazy but groovy 70's thing and the pinball cartoon scene comes into my head 'onetwothreeFOURfive..sixseveneightNINEten…eleventwelve…” Or at times, I'll count something and add on at “ah, ah, ahh” to the end of it like The Count. Boy do I miss old school Sesame Street!

    “One of these things is not like the other” is one of my favorite Sesame Streetisms. I don't watch as often as I used to, but watching it makes me long for the simplicity of my childhood. *sighs*
