Be Prepared! Make Your New Year's Resolution Now

Every year I screw this up bad. (Except the year that I resolved to "be less nice," in emulation of a friend who successfully went with that one the year prior. That WORKS.) So I started brainstorming about my New Year's resolution last week, and I finally came up with a winner. I hereby resolve: to record an album's worth of cover versions of the very fine work of one of the world's best bands, if not the world's very best band, Slow Children. This resolution has it all: personal satisfaction, a chance to gain some new technical skills and also the benefit of not being exactly what everyone else is doing. Not quite, at least. I am so pleased with myself that I may just sit at my desk the rest of the day and contemplate how awesome 2010 will be.

I never knew Mary Lou Retton was in a band.

She may look like Mary Lou but she sounds like Kerri Strug.

I will have more sex – and stop biting my nails (seriously, I need to do this).

Also: YES Slow Children!

OH. I fixed that! The secret is: you go get fake nails at the nail salon! (And then obviously cut them down to appropriate size. So I didn't look like a girl.) I did this, once every two weeks, for a month. And then I had nails. AND NO ONE EVER KNEW.

Thank you! I've been biting mine for over fifteen years and they are SO short. I just want normal nails!

Serious *HUGS*

I did that and I bit those things off too within 24 hours. Amateurs.

Great, now I'm going to have "Vanessa Vacillating" stuck in my head for the rest of the day.

"be more petty" still works as a go-to!
