Ahh yes, it’s that time of year again. Your brain tells you it’s just a day, but the marketing chaps and the orange terror alert level keep forcing you to attach some grave importance to the dawn of a “new year”. You realize this split of time into years and months and days and so on is quite arbitrary, and could have been done in lot more saner ways. You realize there is nothing inherently different about Jan 1 when compared to Dec 31, and YET, you make jokes like “see you next year” and related things. Keeping with the said no reason spirit, I’ve thought of the usual make (and break ASAP) new years resolutions. Why? Just because

  • Use the computer less. As in I can make bold statements like this now, because I almost HAVE to don’t I?
  • Do more of certain kinds of ‘stuff’.
  • Do less of certain kinds of ‘stuff’.
  • Use less “like”, “you know”, “god damnit”, “jesus christ”, “sweet” amongst other words when I talk.

Don’t you just love it when extreme detail is the theme of the day? And yes, this will be added to and expanded upon over the next couple of days.

Speaking of change. Google’s looking all different. GAH! (does the wide, sad eyed girl in Mc Donalds ads going “they changed the mc nuggets you know” style look.)

  1. This using the comp less talk is not very pleasant.
    Replace that for a let’s use brown more resolution.
