So This Is The New Year

I prefer to count birthday-to-birthday, but 2005 was arguably my number two year, after the excellent 2003. A definite step up from 2004. On the other hand, I forgot to make a resolution. For 2005 the plan was to do less work, and I'm not quite sure if the dawning of the New Year rescinded that or what. I guess I'll need to decide on a ruling by Tuesday.

Did you actually do less work?

Is TPMC actually less work?

Generally resolutions are only good for one year. Upside: you can decide to make the same resolution twice!

Hey I got the pop-culture reference in the title!
Off to a great start.

Actually, I think it was MY who inspired me to take a look at the thirty years of rock I had been avoiding, and indie rock in particular. Found a lot of treasure there, and it's been a good year. Thanks Matt.

So resolutions, like warrants from the FISA court, can be obtained retroactively within 72 hours? Cool.

Funny, I still think of the "New Year" by the academic year.

What's the reference? Is that from ... oh crap, that movie where someone (Robert Redford?) runs for office, he wins, and then says "what do I do now?"

And are you not permitting yourself to count high school and/or college years? Since don't think I've yet beaten 2001, at least on a personal level. Or 1996, either.

Enjoy '06.

I assume it's a Death Cab For Cutie ref -- I'd have gone with Motion City Soundtrack's "Resolution" myself.

I don't know if you did less work overall.

But, you did skip the work of making a resolution. So, that's a good sign.

Good for you. Being catholic beats the hell out of getting stuck in a specific fashion or era.

Unlike FISA, you actually have 6 days to retroactively do your resolutions. The twelve days of christmas end with the Feast of Epiphany, so everyone still has four more days for end of the year spiritual tasks.

This year, I'm resolving to be more like a partridge in a pear tree.

After trying numerous diets and diet pills without success, I began taking Hoodia Gordonii Plus before my meals. In three months, I lost 20 pounds from a 210 lb. frame. I experienced the slow, steady weight loss without the hard effort of exercise. I also have been eating much less because I have less food cravings. Thank you so much for this amazing Hoodia Gordonii Plus product. It really works!
