Here we go again, make and break promises to yourself :P I usually make them and break them, a few stuck. This year I am seriously going to get a motorcycle licence. I want a small motorcycle for city driving. I know women that have them and they love it. I am tired of being in car traffic it gets worse all the time. So what is your new years resolution?

I'm still torn.....I have a few ideas, but I don't want to just pick something that I know I'm going to fail at.

I need more time.....

I have been thinking about getting my motorcycle license for a few yeasrs now though, that would make a good resolution.

I don't generally make resolutions. I hope to find a deep-tillage cultivator and a single shared plough for my walking tractor, but that's more of a pipe-dream than a resolution.

I don't make those, never did. I guess I'm justing trying to avoid feeling bad after I don't stick with them.

Just to try harder to get out of debt!

The secret is not to get into debt, Missile. Of course I don't know anybody who's managed that, but it is the secret.

It's not as if I ever kept a resolution anyway. That's why I keep things simple and just attempt to not do something.The only thing I ever successfully gave up was drinking!

pea - that's one scary thought. motorcycle and peas just don't mix well. pea soup so to speak. we need to talk further about this mad cap idea........although a little italian number (vispa?) might not be a bad idea. i've seen those floating around town alot lately, they even have a club you can join. now that would be fun. you could wear a harley hat and your big mama leather boots, whoo hooo, along with the mandatory long black coat you would look way too good!

whats in your cornflakes this morning :P funny stuff :P Its a Vespa, and ya there are alot around here. It looks like a good way to get around. Strickly for transportation mode. I am not joining any club and I am not wearing a long leather coat, I just want to get around easier, not become the matrix reloaded. :P

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!

Why not? Wouldn't want to run a marathon or chase down a mugger in them, but they are quite fashionable, don't you think? I love being more than six feet tall!

I once made a resolution for my friend Leon...it was some kind of party game where we got to write on the walls with indelible makers and make resolutions for each other...that as far as I know he has kept.

He told me to give him something easy as I headed for the wall, so I did.

I resolved that he would stop molesting fat, young boys.

Rev ... Your creativity never ceases to amaze me. Now I'm wondering what his resolution for you was??

His wife made my resolution, actually. I'm not sure how the game worked, except you never made a resolution for the person who made yours. She resolved, predictably enough, that I was to stop smoking. I made a point of breaking the resolution immediately.

Each month on the new moon, I make a pledge for change, so, the New Year one is no big deal.
I'm still working on not taking such big bites while eating. Very difficult. There is a shop here in Seattle that deals with those precious little motorcycles, Peapod. The yellow one displayed on the walkway in front is especially fetching. I need a reason to go look at it up close. It's close to the Clipper dock.
We could take the bus there.
