I hope that all of you have had a happy new year so far! Whoo hoo, 2009!
I must admit, I think resolutions are kind of bunk. I mean, you stay up until at least midnight on Dec. 31st, and suddenly, a few hours of champagne-fueled sleep later, you're supposed to be a new person with a whole new lease on life, just because it's January 1st? Bah. Forget it.
But... I did make a few resolutions, of course, most of which will be long forgotten by January 17th. Some of them are things that I absolutely must do, like get new contact lenses and recycle cans. And then try to get more kultchur, by going to more museums and read better books and edu-macate myself. (I make that resolution every year. And yet... I still use terms like "edu-macate" and sound and act like a fourteen-year-old spaz.)
And, of course, to go on a diet so I can look like this:
I can't help it. Neither can this girl.
But considering I gained four pounds the week before Christmas and have been eating like there's been a trough in front of me since then, that resolution was out the window yesterday afternoon by 4.
One resolution I will hold myself to is updating this blog weekly, at least. I have a whole stash of Accomplishments to mark off my list and tell you about.
But in the meantime, please have a Happy New Year and please enjoy my absolute favorite thing from 2008:
Old this one never gets.
