New Year's Resolutions

I don't usually make New Year's resolutions. However, E. is quite fond of doing so, and frequently makes up a list for me, which says things like, "Eat more fruit" and "Run the London marathon". Then I wad up the piece of paper and throw it at his head.

Still, I feel moved, on this one time occasion, to tentatively propose the following:

1. I will stop dribbling disgusting oobleck in the keyboard, such as dinner detritus, cookies, flaking skin.

2. I will refrain from taunting Soper.

3. I will organise a relay team to run the local marathon for charity.

4. I will eat more fruit.

5. I will clean the microwave on a regular basis.

6. I will stop exaggerating the price reductions of the expensive designer shoes I buy- instead of saying I got them for 50% off, I will say it was 25% off.

7. I will comment more on the blogs of others.

8. I will learn how to do proper HTML links and possibly jazz up the blog banner.

9. I will read an "improving sort of book" once in a while, and not just candyfloss chicklit.

10. I will reinstate "Filing Hour", my once-weekly ritual of keeping on top of all the bills and paperwork.

I think that's enough for now, don't you?

Happy New Year to all!

Is it ok if I don't resolve to stop taunting you?

With all this cyber-flirtation going on, does this mean we are dating? 'Cause you are HOT, ba-bee...

That's a lot! The microwave one sounds especially hard. Love you, Mare -- let this year be a good 'un for you, resolutions or no resolutions!

PLEASE don't stop taunting Soper. The blogworld will be so boring!

Also, I think you need to comment more on MY blog, specifically. Thanks.

That's an impressive list!
I'm taking the wait and see approach.

I'm so glad I'm not the only one who doesn't clean the microwave regularly. Why does it seem so very, very disgusting? Cleaning the oven doesn't bother me, but the microwave grosses me out. Probably primarily because I tend to put hard-boiled eggs in it to warm them up, and I always tell myself, "If I only put them in for a few seconds, they won't explode." And then they explode, and then the microwave is just too disgusting to contemplate.

Those are great resolutions! I need to clean my microwave more too. ;)
