Has anyone here ever
kept a New Year's resolution??? Or even know anyone who has???
I spent decades setting lofty goals for each year, optimistically leaping forward with them ... till about January 5th when I realized it was cold, snowing, I was miserable and retreated back into my afghan cocoon on the couch, cigarette in one hand, chocolate in the other, steaming coffee on the table, watching talk shows and reading junk food novels. And feeling like I failed at something.
Nope, not this year!! This year I intend to increase my cigarette, chocolate and caffeine intake. I plan to continue spending money without setting a budget and thus eating KD at the end of each month because of poor planning. I plan to avoid all exercise, unless it involves wearing down my relentless Jack Russell. I am going to wear my fur coat and stop pretending it is faux. I am going to streak my hair with that delightful bright orange colour that "approaching 50" females generally avoid. I'm going to get more piercings, more tattoos and, yes, more shoes. (Ok, gotta consult with the spouse on the shoes since that tends to be our one point of disagreement.) I'm going to get Peapod to teach me to car dance. I'm going to sleep in at every opportunity.
Ok, the one disagreeable thing I am going to do, is go through all my clothes and get rid of anything I haven't worn this season.
Other than that, I plan to enjoy 2005 to the fullest. Damn the diets, the bugets, the socially acceptable persona. Yippee!
