Today is rapper Eminem‘s 40th birthday. I hope it’s a good one for him. One’s 40s can be a fun time. I’ve been enjoying mine since I decided I was too damn old to tolerate any more asshats in my life. That meant I had to take a hard look at myself and figure out why I was letting those losers in. Gotta take responsibility for your own actions and stop blaming your problems on everyone else, right?  Having been through rehab, Marshall Mathers might have had that realization long before I did; the Serenity Prayer sums up the situation nicely.

So, happy birthday to Em, and thanks for giving me one of the most fun concert experiences of my life last year at Lollapalooza.

My crap picture of Eminem from Lollapalooza 2011. Click for original post.

I swear, that day rivaled seeing Frankie Goes to Hollywood at the Beacon Theatre in 1985, and, as you can imagine, I don’t say stuff like that lightly! (No, seriously, that FGTH concert was insane.)

Oh, and any celebs who need to buy a luxurious birthday gift for their favorite rapper should holla at me. I have an idea for a custom bracelet that will blow his mind so completely that he won’t care that you’re giving it to him late.

UPDATED TO ADD: Years later, I discovered the Frankie Goes to Hollywood concert was at the Ritz.

    Dear Wendy

    I’ve been 40 since Augus. My face may be collapsing, but I am much happier, have better clothes, better jewels, a divine baby and much better friends than in I did in say my 20s.

    Like you, I now do not pander to, nor do I tolerate those who do not contribute meaningfully to my happiness.

    Yes, I steer clear of those people who try and suck the life out of me. I got so sick of people who just bitched about their problems instead of taking responsibility for them.

      I spent a long time not taking responsibility for mine — that didn’t do shit for me! Now I deal with my stuff instead of casting blame…

    Happy Birthday Eminem!!
    I agree with you ladies, I don’t tolerate much of anyone or anything anymore. Don’t care much of peoples opinions especially if I didn’t ask.

  4. That word ‘asshat’ is one of the funniest new slang words IMO.

    Do other people have opinions?

    Thanks to you, I learned all about Eminmen. The Real Slim Shady is brilliant.

    Aw man, I would so love to see Eminem live! Detroit, represent!!

  6. I agree, life begins at 40!
    oh, and thanks for enriching my vocabulary: asshat is a new one for me 😀
