My New Year's Resolutions for 2005:

  1. I resolve to stay unresolved;
  2. I promise to not be too promising;
  3. I swear to not stop swearing;
  4. I will focus on feeling unfocused;
  5. I agree to be disagreeable;
  6. I give my word to have words with people;
  7. I maintain that I am high maintenance;
  8. I declare that I will make declarations;
  9. I will opt to keep my options open;
  10. I will have exact change for when madness takes its toll.

People who know me will affirm that I was doing this stuff already -- so it should be easy to keep doing it. :-)

This post brought to you by "F" (U+0046, LATIN CAPITAL LETTER F)
I will not attempt to guess why the letter F would want to sponsor here, but he seemed to feel it was fairly important.

11. I will no longer eat dog meat.

Hmmmmm. Never tried it, which makes it hard to say I'd no longer be doing it....

12. I will put an image of me with a higher resolution and antialiased on the left side of my blog website.

not bloody likely. :-)

# Sean Chase on 30 Dec 2004 2:23 PM:

You misspelled "disagreeable" - how's that for being disagreeable! :-)

# Michael Kaplan on 30 Dec 2004 2:50 PM:

Whst misspelling? I see no misspelling. ;-)

(well, now I don't)
