Resolutions Schmesolutions...


Yep, that time of the year again, the time to make a bunch of vows that’ll you’ll have broken before the clock strikes 12:10 New Years night.  I have decided to forego making any resolutions this year, mostly because according to the Discovery Channel we are all toast anyway.  Whether it be a rogue asteroid, Super Volcano (my favorite), some plague or Jesus has just had enough and decides to pull the plug on the human experiment, we are at the end of days.  The Discovery Channel isn’t very forthcoming on when the end will come, though it will probably be the minute I get in the bathroom – that is when the phone always rings, anyway. In a way I guess it is best we don’t see it coming. One pastor being interviewed said man would come together in love and forgiveness and help each other to survive. Yeah, that could happen – better check that powerball ticket while your at it, we can’t even get along when it is sunny out.

So forget the gym membership that’ll last until the next morning when muscles you didn’t even know you have seized up in a flash of blinding pain, or the promise to diet lasting until you discover that lost quart of Chunky Monkey ice-cream in the back of the freezer (wouldn’t want it to go to waste, there are people starving in [insert name of country your mother always used when you were a kid here]).

Have a great New Year, and don’t sweat the asteroid – you never hear the one that gets you!!

SF: Stopped by your Blog, read the Vegas saga but there was no where to comment, ergo I didn’t. Too bad about your friend, but I am in the same boat - if a woman comes up to me like she has something on her mind, its definetly a scam. Even Mrs. Phos!!

/t.: It has to be true, I saw it on the Discovery Channel - they wouldn't lie, would they? You have a good one, hold the asteroids!!

Happy New Year.

thanks phos, I already intended to stop drinking so much beer next year. But you're right: that would be no fun ;)

The end of the world with a super volcano? No, it will be much worse!! I think the world will just stop to exist, just disappears all of a sudden, no booom, no bang, no nothing. It will be a very, very disappointing moment ;)

I'm not into NY resolutions either- but I do set goals...all the time. One day of the year isn't any more significant than another (ummm- unless it's my birthday???)

Did you say there was chunky monkey in the back of the fridge?

Gotta go! :)

Yep, I love those doom shows. The earth will end in either 100 or 5 billion years or somewhere in between.

Dang I had better cash in my mutual funds!

I love making New Years Resolutions. I try to make some interesting ones along with the standards. It's usually the odd ones I keep. Last year i never did stick with that diet, but, I'd resolved to give money to any bum(or whatever the politically correct term is)that asked me or that I saw with a sign on the side of the road. Not that hard of a task where I live, but when we to L.A. it was a little harder! One guy we came across was so obnoxious & rude, my husband refused to let me give him anything.
I don't know what it will be this year. I'm thinking maybe something to do with picking up litter.

Kirsten:Actually I am kind of banking on the Discovery Channel bring a little off the mark. Their shows always have the phrase “We are overdue” in them somewhere. As much as I’d like to meet you, I would as soon do it here and in one relatively healthy piece.

DM: Man is to inventive to allow the world to go out with a whimper – too many “if I can’t have it all, you can’t either” personalities in the world to allow that to happen. All that great beer there and you are thinking about giving it up? Send your share here and I’ll take up the slack for you!!

LL: Too much TV. Discovery Channel is running a week of the “Best of what is going to kill us all” and I thought it was pretty funny. Think this post is a downer, wait ‘til “Shark Week”!

MV:Any day that is a day off of work is significant in my book!! At least I got you to clean your freezer out!

hammer:I think we need to have a big party, even if the world doesn’t end it is as good an excuse as any.

l>t: My problem is I wouldn’t even know where to start with the resolutions, lots of room for improvement on all fronts for ol’ Phos. Have a great New Year!!

A suggestion regarding those resolutions. To prop up one's self esteem one must ALWAYS set the bar really, really low. Things like: I vow to eat potatoes a few times this year at least, or I resolve to watch a little, or a lot, of television. Then, on December 31, 2007 when you review your accomplishments you can smugly think to yourself that you actually have an iota of self-discipline and purpose.

You too.
I gave up on resolutions ages ago. New Year I think is for celebrating, not punishment. Now, where's that bottle of chablis I have resisted opening...

nanuk: Good idea! I vow not to use the F word more then 10 times a day and will quit smoking (I have a good lead on that one, since I don't smoke).

I have changed my mind. I vow to make the most of every day and stop being a miserable git, especially at Christmas. Phew.

fuff:What do you have to be miserable about, you have us - oh, right, never mind. Hope you have a cheerier New Years!!!

Come on, you can't be that bad.
As a matter of fact I'd bet you aren't that bad.

I'm with you. Resolutions can kiss my ass.

l>t: Thanks, I have my moments!

chickie: Well put!
