So... who are you kissing at 00:00:01 January 1, 2004?

Also, what resolution are you going to make for 2004?

I'm going to try to lose 100 lbs. Okay, maybe 50.

Hmm, I doubt I'll be doing anything terribly exciting that night. Maybe I'll hack some, maybe I'll be on IRC, maybe I'll be watching a DVD - dunno (the odds of me actually going out on NYE is pretty unlikely - even more unlikely are the odds I'll be in Times Square :-P). The only thing I stand a chance of kissing that night is a crisp clean glass of purified well water.

heh, i'll be with my two best friends, so no kissing going on there unless we all get too drunk again...

as for resolutions? i'm gonna go with the traditional cut out chocolate for a month, whilst making another resolution about a day later confirming that all resolutions are void, right..?

but who you are kissing... well that ain't as interesting (at least for me, who knows none of you irl) as who you'd like to kiss.... [blush]

love from the tin, Spoonie [Wink]

Jess, if you lose at the rate of 2 lb/week (which is as fast as you can safely go, BTW) then that resolution is doable in a year. Just be ready to forgive yourself for the inevitable screw-ups on the way. You are, after all, human. [Smile]

I don't know where I'll be New Year's Eve. Most likely at home, watching a movie. My sis and I might go out to a movie. I may just hole up in a corner and write. given that dman's on the other side of the country, I'll either be kissing a guinea pig or a cup of soda.

resolution: i like to run already, but i would have to say gradually make my way up to 15 mi with 75lbs on my back. i want to get fit for the marine corps. I'm also going to cut back on my hours at work, start freelancing a little more and contribute more time to my studies.

i remember back in wrestling season, we would be overweight and have to loose like 3lbs in about 8 hours before weigh-ins. If we were over just 1oz we wouldn't wrestle or get bumped up a weight-class.

I said safely Jace. You can lose shitloads of weight in a short time, but most of it's water and, anyways, it's nota very nice thing to do with your body.

Y'know, I've carried ~75 lb for around 9 miles or so. Never tried it running. It was painful enough walking. Especially at the end when we gained around 3,000' in elevation over the course of a mile and a half. I've also done a 16 mile day, up and down a few ridges, but the pack could not have been more than 60 and, seeing as it was near the end of the trip, probably closer to 55. We took a break to get some ice cream at a visitor center and then made our final push up to a high alpine meadow to camp for the night. A very pleasant day.

Nothing however, beats Denali. Try hauling a 50 pound pack and 40 pound sled. Up hill. All day. At altitude. Now that, that fscking hurt.

Pffff. I was hoping to watch the sun rise on 1 January 2004 with my girlfriend... But alas, it is not to be.

The reason begins with P, is plural but ends in t and is six letters.

well i plan to work my way up. i can already run 15 mi but next year im going to try it with a 20lb sack, then 25 and so on till i hit 75. i live about 15 minutes away from big bear so ill probably either go there or to wright-wood where it will only get to about 8500' ithink. (i thought i saw a sign that said 8000 and i know we went past it so...)

I'm not sure what lucky lady I'll be around at 00:00:01 20040101. Probably none. [Frown] But, you really never know, a lot can happen in 8 days, 3 hours, and 52 minutes. [Smile]

Edit (addendum): do you think by then Interland can get their clocks set??

Probably a glass of apple cider, while watching a movie (most likely Total Recall or The Fly). However, adding 24 hours to that question, I'd have to say Scott [hearts] .

Well I dunno about the whole weight thing. I think I can manage losing 32 lbs. in a reasonable amount of time. I've already started. So far I've lost 7 lbs... I don't exactly remember when I started, but it was within this month. Anywho, hmm.. I think my resolution will be to stop procrastinating. But there's no rush in deciding now, I'll just wait till the 31st [Razz] .

I really wouldn't suggest running with weight on your back. It fscks your knees.

I run long distance myself, and I have knee problems with no weight on my back!
I intend to cut beef out of my diet altogether. Its almost out of my diet completely anyway. I can see why European and Asian countries are cutting out the import of American beef altogether. I may splurge on 'organic' beef once in a while.
As for kissing someone, that would be a NEGATIVE.

New Year's Resolution: I will not spend New Year's Eve watching The Year of the Farce and playing Mario with obligatory group of geek guy friends.

Also, on the same note: I will not spend Valentine's Day watching movies and eating chocolate with ex-boyfriend-turned-gay-best-friend.

Actually, I can almost guarantee that I won't keep that first resolution - the pizza and Mario and geek-talk are too much fun to resist!! [shake head]

Plans have just changed regarding who I'll be smooching this New Year's Eve, due to complications with my mom's work schedule; the hospital has subtracted a day of her break, which happens to be Jan. 1st, Eee!

*Running around like a beheaded chicken*

... Oki, that's nasty, I'll stop. Wait a minute, I'm supposed to be the one beheading the chickens!

My knees and ankles pop out of place quite often. I don't run, but I walk daily, carrying about 30 lbs. [average] of school stuff... not all on my back though, which is both good and bad.

Hooh, tell me about it. I think the spread of Mad Cow Disease is mostly to blame for that, at least in WA.

<somewhat useless fact> Did you know that vegetables absorb 67% of the nutrients in soil, and farmers only add 3 vitamins to it? </somewhat useless fact> Yeah! The farmers!

I'm going out with friends so I won't be kissing anyone... hopefully. And my New Years resolution is to spend at least three hours a day on my PS2. I think it feels neglected.

New Years Eve..Hmm..I am getting Chinese Food delivered and I will most likely be on IRC, and my grandmother is coming up for a visit for a few nights so most likely she is the only person I will be kissing [Razz]

I get to spend the moment with our Computer Aided Dispatch server, because the incident numbers have to be changed over to 2004**** manually. Thankfully, this is the last year that I have to do it, and next year will be the first year that I get to spend with my wife, son, and in-laws in Japan.
Resolutions- none spring to mind, maybe working less than 500 hours of overtime, or actually taking my vacation. Maybe next year.
Best to all.
