The Obligatory New Year's Post

Aight, I've been putting this off, but it's now New Year's Eve Eve, and I doubt I'll be posting over the weekend.

Instead of shelling out mondo cash to go to a random bar/party for New Year's where I'll be alone and have no one to kiss anyway, I decided I would volunteer to help out at one of the parties (through a volunteer group I belong to), if for no other reason than the free admission to the party. And if I meet a cute boy or two, hey, bonus.

Like Kat,* I long ago swore off of new year's resolutions. I figure if there's anything about me that annoying enough that I want to change, why wait until an articifial time of the year to take action on it? No time like the present. Want to lose weight? It's okay to start dieting and exercising in December, or November, or whenever the hell you make that decision. Same with any other thing you want to do: be more patient, be less sarcastic, whatever other resolutions people tend to make.

Of course, I will probably start going back to the gym after the new year, (not as a New Years Resolution, the timing is just a coincidence) which places me square in amongst the ranks of the many who join as part of their new years plan, making January and February the worst times ever to try to work out. My plan is to start working out either at lunch or way late, like 8 or 9 pm.

In any event, Happy New Year, all.

* This is my first attempt at using the "trackback" feature I see on so many other people's blogs. Is it cool at all? I can't tell.

Insta-update: The answer to the above question: No. I had to change the link so it actually didn't look retarded.

just so you know, i have never ever used trackback. i am afraid of trackback. i always link to the original.

happy, happy new year, dennis. i have a good feeling on this one ;)

If it's any consolation, I, most likely, won't be kissing anyone at midnight, either. I hope you have a great time at the party, and wish you a Happy New Year!

Amen on the new year's resolutions- have you actually met anyone who kept any of their's?? Happy 2006! :D

I'm with you, New Year's resoultions, while based in goodness and an attempt to "do better", should be started when you think of them! Great idea! Now, if I could just get it to work...
