Ok, someone had to kick this one off sooner or later - so here goes....only one New Year's Resolution for me this time...I'm not going to drink anymore.

Mind you, I'm not going to drink any less either [Big Grin]

Dontcha just love the old ones? [Wink]

I'm only going to make one resolution this year. I figure that way I might have a chance at keeping it. I am going to walk for one hour 6 days a week.

My resolution is to screw 2006 completely up on the biggest level that I can.

And to finally beat Solitaire.

The latter is the most important, of course.

(no, I've never beaten Solitaire)

Alright now, that's the last straw, I'm calling the ass taxidermist to tell him to stop making hats in your size RIGHT NOW.

You are going to be really obnoxious so I can build up resistance to it and practice being nice?

My New Year's resolution is to wind up owning less stuff. I want to get rid of about 75% of what I own and not replace it (and not just dump it into a landfill either).

Absolutely. What else could I have meant? I thought that was a given.

1. Take the CFA Level I exam
2. Find a new job that pays better than my current one, and is a bit more interesting - fund accounting is easy money, but it's about as exciting as an average brick.
3. Let's not forget a lame fitness goal - ride at least 100 miles per week on my bike once the weather gets warmer (elitist roadies, keep in mind it's a lazy bastard riding a heavy-ass mountain bike before you start telling me you do more than that in a single day)

That's all for now. Nothing else to see here folks, move along...

I will finish one of the software projects I start.


And I will get laid. Preferably more than once, and while not intoxicated.

Yeah, you say that now. But what about when the job offer with the big bucks rolls in from Raccoon City?
