Just getting a jump on things here, I figured I would publicly post my resolutions for next year so my family can read this and hold me to them...........
#1- Lose some weight. I'm not gonna go crazy on this one but I'd like to drop 15 pounds by May 1rst. That's less then a pound a week, so I figure it's doable.
#2- Do some outside work on our house. I hate to paint but our window frames all need some attention so I am going to tackle them one at a time.
#3- Ride my bikes more. Last year I had an excuse because of injuries, but this year I'd like to ride at least 3000 miles between all my bikes. Before last year, I was averaging 4 to 5000 miles a year, so this is extremely doable.
Yeah, it's a short list but if I make it longer- I'll just blow it off.
I did see this. Maybe I will resolve to take more naps. I can never get the hang of taking short naps, a small nap for me is 4 hours.
RFID...........that's some scary stuff and it's gonna be everywhere in 5 years.
I was listening to a NPR podcast last night about how the meaning of Christmas has been changed over the past few years. They interviewed someone from the American Family Association and they were upset with Wal-Mart for using using the term "Happy Holidays" instead of "Merry Christmas"
I don't often agree with the AFA, but I do as far as folks saying "Merry Christmas" instead of "Happy Holidays".........
I hate it when someone says "Happy Holidays"- I use "Merry Christmas" and if you don't like it-piss off, you're probably a scrooge anyways.
I did look at the AFA's website out of curiosity and it's pretty darksided in my opinion. Not a whole lot of stuff on there I can get behind, I think the whole world would be a better place if we all minded our own business as far as religion and "family values" are concerned. If I wanna worship goats, hey-that's what I'm gonna do.
Here's a decidely non P.C. pick-up truck. And another. And the granddaddy of them all.
You know you're a redneck when............
Here's an interesting report concerning aging drivers. What do I think? I think ALL drivers should be retested after they have an "at fault" accident and if you are over a certain age-you should be retested every 5 years.
Here's another reason to use Firefox 1.5, it's getting ugly out there.
2006 predictions. They're only funny if you're a geek.
Last night at work I swore I was on one of those "hidden camera" shows......... We had a very badly dressed transvestite shopping in our store and I almost laughed out loud when I helped him select some pastries.
The dude was close to 7 feet tall, had a pot belly, very bad makeup and a dime store wig on.........at least his dress looked nice.
The part that almost busted me up was his voice. Most woman don't have a deep baritone voice. Whatever, as long as he's happy-I'm happy.
And on a sad note, Michael Vale has passed away. If I had a dollar for everytime someone said "It's time to make the donuts" I'd be able to buy a really nice mountain bike.
Thanks for reading.........
