Happy New Year!

Many years ago, I made a resolution not to make any more resolutions, and I've stuck to it since.  It is a shame, because I am really good at sticking to resolutions.  For example, I resolved, after breaking up with Evil Mike never to date anyone, ever again, who I did not find at least reasonably attractive upon first seeing them. That worked out well for me since my husband is pretty cute.

I think if I were to make resolutions, it would only be right for them to be ridiculous and super easy.  Like:

or perhaps:

I resolve to annoy celebrities on twitter until one of them finally acknowledges me as awesome OR blocks me.

Resolving not to do things seems like a drag. I have enough opportunities to be disappointed in myself naturally (still neurotic), I don't need to manufacture any more that I then declare publicly, giving other people the opportunity to be disappointed in me too. I think if you are gonna set up rules for yourself, they should make you happy, not miserable. So if you are still into resolving stuff, go easy on yourself, and please consider making at least one funny/easy resolution so you can feel like a success and add some laughter to your life... and then tell me about it so I can laugh too.

And hey, because I am a nerd and can't help myself, SEE YOU NEXT YEAR! =P


  1. HAPPY NEW YEAR JODEE! You still rock!!

  2. If it makes you feel better, I would totally block you on twitter if I were a celebrity.

    (and the waffle thing? YES. that just makes sense)

    Happy New Beer! (oops--"Year")


  3. Are you taking suggestions on the monthly animal? If so my feeling is to stick with the "easy" ones -- the ones that are recognizable... even cliche. Cat, monkey, rabbit -- those sorts. Constantly explaining exactly what an echidna is takes the fun out of it.

  4. My resolution is to be the WORLDS BEST GIRLFRIEND ( Totally reasonable, I think.

  5. Yay! I also do not love the concept of resolutions. I figure I could make and ignore a new set of resoultions every month. Ooh. Wait. I'm on to something: every last-day-of-a-month I will drink a bottle of champagne, and say I'm going to do something that doesn't matter to anyone else, starting tomorrow. Deal!

  6. Ha! Resolutions are such a joke. Mine are always huge and sweeping and utterly unattainable.

    Good luck with the celebrity stalking!

  7. Happy January 2nd!

    I totally made waffles yesterday. :) I took pictures and then blogged about it. :P (

    Is that ok? I don't want to be one of those douchey commentors that just posts links to my blog all over the place. It's just that I'm new to blogging and would like SOMEONE to read me. I have been reading your blog for quite a while now and do comment every so often and this is sort of relevant to your post. So, I'm only going to feel a little bit douchey abut this, ok? Please don't hate me.

    Also, I think Jason Segel would be an awesome blogger's celebrity! He seems really down to earth and like a nice guy. To even out my linking douchery, here is a link to an interview with Jason on Q. Nothing to do with me. (Except maybe that my future celebrity stalking could be the host, Jian Ghomeshi. I LOVE him!!!)

  8. @Bonnie- You are totally allowed to post links for me to read. If all you ever posted was link and never responded, I might be slightly annoyed, but dude, I spam the entire world with links to my crap all the time, a billion times a day, and I also feel douchey, but whatever. I think it is part and parcel of the whole deal (I am not entirely sure I just used that phrase correctly but I love parcels, whew hew). Anyway, point is, I do not think you douchey, but I understand the feeling... and now I am going to go read your post. =D

  9. MMk here I am, the douchey commenter:
    look at me!!!

    haha, just kidding (but not really)
    what I really wanted to say was
    1. Love your resolutions, I should resolve to make resolutions that are more like yours.
    2. How did I not find this blog sooner?? The blogosphere is a very mysterious world. You're pretty awesome.

  10. I once resolved to use the work "Fuck" more frequently in casual conversation (when appropriate. Like not in churches - can't say I haven't used that word in church though - or around children. or in front of my grandmother who would probably wash my mouth out with soap) That was the year I found myself employed in a cabinet shop. Mission accomplished.
    I am now more careful about what I resolve to do. OOH! This year I resolve to have more sex. The willing kind. (you have to be specific with the universe)
