2009, um, Resolutions


January 2, 2009 by Becky

I’m not really one for New Years Resolutions, but I think I’ve come up with some I can live with for 2009 that won’t cause a global yawn.

• I’ll remove Decembruary 33 – 36 from my calendar. But I’ll keep the 32nd. I need that day to write my resolutions and finish eating the fudge.

• I’ll try at least 85% of the time (because goals need to be quantified) to put the frizz control on my hair and the moisturizer on my face instead to the other way around this year.

• I’ll refrain from yelling, “Where the bejeebers is my newspaper!!” until AFTER I put on my glasses. I’ve been told it scares the neighbors. Or maybe I’ll just put on a robe.

• I will only wear free-flowing garments so as not to ruin my self-esteem.

• I promise to stimulate the economy each day by unbridled avarice, possibly cultivating a heretofore unknown devotion to banjos and banjo accessories.

• I will indulge my creepy — potentially unhealthy — obsession with Billie Joe Armstrong and Green Day by tattooing their playlist on the entire length of my left leg. Then, whenever I play one of their songs, I’ll email a close-up photo of it to the fan club.

• I promise to weep tears of joy for my fellow writers who get called up to The Game rather than secretly hoping they forget how to sign their names at booksignings. But as I write that, it seems not-quite-doable, so maybe I’ll amend this one to promising to attend every booksigning by my fellow writers but I’ll jump up and yell random names as they’re trying to sign. Yeah. That I can do. As a bonus, it will double as my aerobic workout.

• And, finally, I will take charge of my health. I’ll ask my doctor if Levitra is right for me.

What are your resolutions?

    Tell me when you can play “Longview” on the banjo.

    My New Year’s resolutions include posting snotty rebuttals to your posts. Possibly with stick figure illustrations. And bluff my way backstage at a Jonas Brothers concert.

      MJ, couple things. One, no one outsnotties The Becky. Two, you can’t draw. And three, they call that ‘stalking’ and they frown on it. Just ask my probation officer.

Eclectic topics for an over-stimulated world from an over-caffeinated gal living in BeckyLand.

Stuff You Might Want To Know About Me

• I write low-calorie cookbooks and novels. • People say nice things about them. Mostly. • I’m usually pretty funny. Sometimes clever. Often silly. • I’m blogging to connect with readers who like my style and to hear interesting, eclectic things from them. • I won't overwhelm you with big words or good nutrition. Like a non-calorie doughnut of delicious words. • I'm still working on my manuscript involving a high school marching band, synesthesia, and a germaphobe. • I’m a bit of a germaphobe. • I love fried chicken, chocolate cake, and Chinese food and think there should be enormous cash prizes for the discoverers of same. • I hate lima beans and Brussels sprouts and think it should be a crime to grow them. • Love these words: edumacation, truthiness, newsertainment. • Hate these: moist (too gross), lull (bad mouth-feel), arguably (too stupid). • Love Broadway. Hate opera. • I’m an expert on exactly one topic — me. • I don’t know much about welding, the water cycle or being a millionaire, but I bet I could learn.

I’ve organized all my articles for you!
