Are you a New Old Biddy?

You may be a New Old Biddy if... own more than 5 "As Seen On TV" products and actually use them.
...tea is your drink of choice when asked, "What'll ya have?" at a bar.
...Shirley Temples are a close second behind tea. start to not be able to hear people at parties and complain about how loud the music is.
...your purse contains the following at ALL times:  mini-first aid kit, Bean-o, 5 pens (3 without caps), wadded up tissues, gum, Chapstick and a tampon.
...your cell phone's fanciest feature is "texting." have the most expensive towing package from AAA because, "You never know!" curl your hair. will only shop in stores where you have coupons or club cards.
...people tell you that you own a very sensible car.
...MTV pisses you off because its "not like the old days." worry about how much caffeine you've had after 6pm and if it will keep you up all night. look at pictures of yourself from only a few years ago and think, "I was so young then..." REALLY don't understand that noise kids are listening to nowadays.  You're not just saying it as a joke anymore.
...working until 7pm is considered "working way late" and you have to go straight to bed when you get home. still use stamps to mail your bills and have a general distrust of online banking.
...your most frequented websites are WebMD and LOLDogs. can only go to one venue a night, and if it doesn't have a parking lot, forget it!
...anything that starts after 9pm is a hassle and will most likely be skipped in favor of sitting on the couch with your dog. long for the simpler times of the 1980's. have a list of foods that don't agree with you and freely share it with anyone who suggests a restaurant that has one of those food items, along with a blow by blow description of what happens to you when you eat said food. carry re-usable bags in your purse and make a big deal about using them whenever possible.

And last, but not least...

...You wear a hoodie year round cuz you're always cold, even in the summer time.  


  1. OOooooh, am I the first commenter on your first entry on the new blog???
    I dont fit most of those statements, so I guess I am not a New Old Biddy?
    But I REALLY don't understand that noise kids are listening to nowadays... well at least not the rock music-- I get the hip hop as much as any white kid from a burbs can... probably better.
    Keep alerting me on myspace of the new entries, bc the old biddy in me doesnt understand how I am supposed to keep up on multiple blogs otherwise!

  2. I'm still trying to figure out how you're cold during the summer in LA. Love your new blog!

  3. Congratulations on the new blog!!!
    Should I be worried that I'm only 23 and some of these statements seem to fit me perfectly???
    Looking forward to more of your blogs, I've been missing them lately. Was starting to feel jealous of a dog... :) Keep 'em coming!

    PS: Any chance you're going to write an ANTM-blog, I love those! I think you might have some things to say about the new batch of idiots...
    PPS: Sorry for the terrible english.

  4. Wow, I didn't realize how many of those fit me...guess I'm an old/new biddy! Turing 30 really does you in (ack, I'm almost

    I'm linking this to my blog and telling everyone I know to read it, often.

    You're great, and yes I know we've never met. (I swear I am not a stalker....promise!!)

  5. YAY! Glad you guys are liking the new blog! HAPPY FISTS! :)

    I do need to get back to doing some more TV reviews... um... my Tivo still isn't set up. I know! It's been since August. I know... sigh...

  6. Love the new blog.

    I fit most of those statements and I'm only 27. Not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing......

  7. Mrs. Bee and Helene - you both shouldn't worry - you should be honored! It's an elite club. Happy fists to both of you. :)

  8. You are a superstar, superstar!! Love it. Blog is funny. Blog is timely. Well done.

    and ps - only the very few are strong enough to order a shirley temple as adults. Only a few. (not naming names) (or revealing that it's me) (a few I tell you!)

  9. I am so glad to see you here, Jennifer. Much of your list is frighteningly accurate. But I must say, WebMd for the win.

  10. Long live the new old biddies!
    I've fit this description since my early 20's.
    Buttercup and Matilda should be pen-pup buddies.

  11. Boo on the new blogsite. I like the myspace site, cuz then I can see photos of the commentors (cuz you've got some SERIOUSLY cute commentors).

    Plus I can read the blog and look at YOUR hoodie'd cute self.

    Yay for the blog, tho. I'm clearly an old-old male biddie.

  12. Yay for the new blog! I guess I'm happily in this club because a Shirley Temple is my first choice at a bar... and I'm 26. Oh yeah- and I didn't even realize that people don't use real stamps anymore... I have a book of them in my drawer, ha!

  13. We're never gonna get along, are we? I like alcohol and cats too much ---- and hate(d) the 1980's and 90's probably equally. :)

  14. Happy Fists!! I have been a happy reader since your myspace days. I have re-posted some of your best blogs on my facebook and told everyone to read you!! I am so happy you now have a blog. :)

  15. Oh thank you, Christina! It's people like you who have made a blog like this possible. Next phase, New Old Biddy BOOKS. :)

  16. Oh YAY! Like Christina I've been a reader since your myspace days. I've sort of let my myspace fall by the wayside and haven't been over to read your new posts in awhile (sorry!) but was so stoked when I saw this. HAPPY FISTS!!
