Resolution Schmesolution

'09 is here. So are new year's resolutions.

Lose weight? Exercise more? Not for me.

I've had the same set of resolutions since 1989. Well, technically not exactly the same.

  • Always remember it's only school.

  • Eat more ding-dongs

  • Always remember it's only work.

  • Eat more cake

The changes... Well, I'm not in school anymore. And I never really ate any ding-dongs at all, so I decided to go easy on myself and make it more achievable by going with the more generic "cake".

My deal with resolutions is that - if you need a specific event to commit yourself, then you probably don't really want to do the thing you are committing yourself to. If you want to lose weight, go on a diet... TODAY. Not 3 weeks from now on your birthday.


Resolutions - Like them
New Year's Resolutions - Garbage

PS - Yes, I'm Writing about New Year's Resolutions just before January ends. At least it is not February.

Party for your right to fight!

I hate how the new years reso-losers cram themselves into gyms everywhere making the first sixth of the year impossible for people who actually manage to make themselves exercise regularly year round. And the thing that's so irritating that you just know anyone lame enough to join the doomed fatass lemming herd is also lame enough to give up before february. It's all for nothing. I think they ought to just induce fatal heart attacks now and get it over with. All they do is consume gym parking spaces two months out of the year and greasy fatass food the remaining ten.
