  3. Happy birthday Jodie! And about that question: Too old? I'd say you are finally old enough to wear those spock ears to work ;-)

  4. Oh, happy birthday. Never too old for spock ears. Could be too young though - you know, they could suffocate babies, that sort of thing!
    It's my birthday tomorrow. Seems lots of nutters are born in late July ;.P

  9. I'm two years of turning 40 and I'm still asking the big questions, like 'should I have children'??!! Eek!

  10. Oh YAY! Happy Birthday to you Jodie! May it be an excellent 40th. And yes, go Spock!

    ReplyDelete
  11. God, no. Apparently the older you get, the more eccentric (Spocky) you're allowed to be. So says my 88 year old granny - so it's gotta be true.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Happy Birthday Jodie!!! I'm singing - can you hear me???? You can't? What a blessing for you!!!

    The spock ears are great! Much more flattering than a Klingon-forehead, I find! :-)

    Have a great birthday sweetheart!

    Hugs!!!

  16. Happy Birthday Jodie. Hell no, you are only as old as your spock ears so you're never too old to wear them to work!

    ReplyDelete
  17. GINORMOUS Happy Birthday Jodie!

    But fancy calling it 40! Honestly woman! Haven't you heard the recent Thirty-Ten (Rosalie Quinlan) and Twenty-Twenty (Jo in Tas) - much nicer sounding!

    Hope you have the most amazing time and enjoy wearing your Spock Ears!

    Lots of love, Locket xxx

  18. Jodie, Jodie, Jodie!

    Happy Birthday!

    And there I was thinking you were a Jodie Knight! May the Farce be with you!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Happy Birthday! I think 40 gives you the excuse to wear spock ears to work. :o) I'm wondering what is appropriate for turning 50! I'm looking that number straight in the eyes!!!

    ReplyDelete
  30. No way! All the more reason to wear them I'd say!!

    ReplyDelete
  31. No way...40 is the new 30 x Happy Birthday x

    ReplyDelete
  32. I think once you have turned 40 you are old enough not to have to ask others for their opinion!!

    Hope you had a wonderful day and the bestest birthday ever - you really are a spring chicken you know!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  46. HAPPY BIRTHDAY JODIE, you gorgeous girl!! I say have as many childish regressions as you like, it's your birthday after all.

  47. Happy Birthday Jodie, I'm older than you so I think you can definitely wear the ears but I don't think I could!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Never, Nemoy is still wearing the eyes and he is in his 70's!! If not 80's!! hahaha!! Happy 40th!!

    ReplyDelete
  49. Happy birthday!!!

    At 45, I have not yet stopped wearing my (sparkly, because I'm that kind of girl) spock ears to work, or anywhere else.

    We're young and happy and living our life to its fullest. :)

    ReplyDelete
  50. happy birthday! go ahead and wear the ears... i wore snakes in my hair to work once and my boss took me out for lunch that day. i don't think he expected the snakes when he planned it... :)

    ReplyDelete
  51. Ah 40 ... I can confidently say that its life Jim, but not as you know it. Apparently short skirts and sparkly eye makeup are no-nos, but Spock ears are fine!

    Wishing you a very happy and special birthday, Jodie.

    So - I'd say - happy birthday - and keep on doing what you love!

  78. Happy Birthday Jodie! Surely never too old? (Actually do you have to be closer to 40 than 20 to know who Spock is??!) Hope you have a great celebration. x

    ReplyDelete
  79. Never!! wear your spock ears with pride, and congrats on your 40th!!!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  85. No!!! I'm 50 and I think I young enough to wear them. I believe your not old tell you die!!!But then it does depend on when you die. Ok that does sound a litte weird.

    ReplyDelete

    Forty isn't that bad, I've managed to survive the first 8 months of it!

    ReplyDelete
  88. Having already got there before you, I can tell you with great authority that 'LIFE BEGINS AT FORTY'. You gotta wear them spock ears now. Have a great 40th birthday sweet Jodie.

  91. Happy birthday Jodie. I'm -sure- you will never be too old to wear your spock ears to work.

    I just wanted to pop in to say what a pleasure it was to bump into you in Ballarat, and finally meet you in person!

    Gosh look at your comments, you are a (well deserved) superstar blogger!

    ReplyDelete
  92. Happy Birthday Jodie! And, forty is when you start to be able to do what ever you want :-)

    ReplyDelete
  93. There are no rulez!!!!!Enjoy and I hope you did wear those ears to work!! Hope you had a super wonderful day and may your year ahead be fabulous:)

    ReplyDelete
  94. Definately not too old, infact I believe spock ears are compulsory (in certain galaxies anyway) Happy Birthday!!

    ReplyDelete
  95. Happy Birthday Jodie - sorry a bit slow off the mark at the moment due to the craziness of life! Hope you celebrated in style.

    Apologies that I didn't get to catch up with you in Ballarat - good intentions but with 6 kids in tow it was probably never going to happen. Next time....

    ReplyDelete
  96. Oooh...a very belated but very very happy 40th Birthday to you Jodie!!!

    I do hope you went with the spock ears - I'd say they're even more necessary now you're forty....and I can say that 'cos I'm in the 40+ club too :)

    ReplyDelete
  99. Having just encountered the big 4-0 myself last month, I must answer your question: "HELL NO!" (pardon the potty mouth). I think it's all the more reason to have fun and enjoy life for the next 40-plus years!

    PS: Happy Birthday to you!
