My resolutions for the New Year 2006:

I shall procrastinate less.

I shall be a better friend to my friends, and better enemy to my enemies.

I shall pass Illinois’s’s Assessment of Professional Teaching.

I shall drink more water and milk, and less soda and pop.

I shall pretend that Star Wars Episodes I, II, and III simply never happened.

I shall lose thirty pounds—that may be three pounds ten times, or six pounds five times, or some such combination, but it will come to thirty pounds.

I shall strive to embiggen more people, except for those who I think don’t deserve it.

I shall attend a Cubs game and a Bears game.

I shall be a shiny, happy person on the inside, and the usual on the outside.

I shall force the release date of the next James Bond film, Casino Royale, back to 2007, for what I would think is an obvious reason.

I shall read every book I that have bought but not yet read.

I shall keep at least fifty percent of my resolutions.

Dom, drink more tea. I too have completely stopped drinking all soda and having real tea (not Lipton tea bags, I mean loose-leaf tea like Rishi Tea) really helped. Some of the fruitier teas can be iced and drank without any kind of sweetener. Which reminds me…no more artificial sweeteners either!

Since when do Lipton tea bags not count as “real tea”? Didn’t “y’all” lose that war?

Seriously, though, I’ll have my staff look into your suggestion and we’ll take it into consideration.
