Watch Me Turn 30, by Ashley N.
Question of the year: Is spending your late 20s living on South Beach and island-hopping the Caribbean as a career a) every responsible adult's fantasy or b) totally outlandish and ultimately unfulfilling for a semi-responsible adult who still places an abnormally high priority on fun? Perhaps the mere concept of what constitutes adulthood has been distorted due to my surroundings.

Through this blog, I hope to figure out what being "almost 30" really means to me...hopefully, before the big b-day next January.

Thanks goes to Holly C. for, first and foremost, agreeing to go on one of my press trips to the 'burbs of Fort Lauderdale and ultimately passing this site along to me.

DAY 106  |  April 26, 2008

When do you reach the point when you are "too old" to hold a good spot for four hours just to be within five rows of Prince? As long as I can be surrounded by a 6'5 Napolean Dynamite in tighty whiteys, a 19 yr-old chain smoking joints and not believing we are 29 and three frat boys urging the ladies in the crowd to "Take their panties off for Prince," I will do this forever!

Picks from the day: VHS or Beta and, of course, his Purpleness.

Dis from the day: Kate Nash.

Weirdos of the day: Kraftwerk. My friend Jono has been telling me that Germans are a little off for some time now and this robot "band" sealed the deal.
