Dave Grohl is 40 years old today. I always used him as the measure of oldness beyond which I would be unable to find someone a suitable romantic partner... he's about 11.5 years older than I am. At 13, having a crush on a 24-year-old was totally ideal. At 28, the crush has dissipated a bit (mostly due to his music sucking now), but unlike that tool Christian Slater, who was my fleeting crush from age 10-11, I totally can't forget about my dearest darling Dave Grohl.

One humid summer day back in 2001 or 2002, we drove around a certain neighborhood of Alexandria looking for his house. Apparently we weren't that far off, as a certain someone found out shortly thereafer that he worked with one of Grohl's neighbors, but she wouldn't divulge the address out of some semblance of privacy and respect. Fuck that, I wouldn't have been a bother, I just wanted to leave flowers in his mailbox or something! Or recordings, maybe. Or a bouquet bound together by the ribbon from old cassette tape recordings I'd made. Okay, I'm starting to sound like the uberfan from Flight of the Conchords here.

In conclusion: 40 isn't old, if you're a tree.
