Here are my New Year's resolutions:
- I will quit smoking for another year (till December 31st, 2006 at 6:00 PM to be exact). I've done this resolution successfully for the last 26 years. Before that, I wasn't able to quit forever, since, being a goal oriented kinda guy, I wouldn't know that I succeeded until I was dead. So I quit for a year at a time instead.
- I'm in shape. Round is a shape, isn't it? Nonetheless, I'll strive to work toward a different shape. While I realize that "cut up" and "lean" are shapes that are out of reach, I'm thinking I can achieve something more modest - perhaps "oval", for example.
- I will wish for Peace on earth and good will towards men and women: even for those I don't like; even those who are corrupt world leaders and politicians; even if it kills me. I know that wishing has little impact, but that's the best I can muster up at the moment.
- I will help more around the house. Since it would be nearly impossible for me to help less, sheer random chance means I'm likely to succeed at this one.
