Sometimes I write letters to Ellen DeGeneres. No particular reason. Just because I can.
I gave up making resolutions a long time ago. They’re just too much like fireworks. I get really excited when making my resolutions. I stick to them for maybe
a week a day and a half, and then I watch as they fizzle away. Then I spend the rest of the year completely forgetting I made resolutions – until December rolls around, at which point, I remember the old resolutions I didn’t accomplish and feel like a huge failure. So this year, I’ve compiled a short list of ridiculous resolutions that are impossible to accomplish in 12 months. It’ll give me something to laugh about in December.
- Become a New York Times best-selling author – Maybe someday this will happen but not this year. That would require me to finish my novel first and at the moment, I’ve been enslaved by a mafia lawyer who believes his story should come first.
- Clean my house.
- Put laundry away – After I wash it. Not before – which I’ve done sometimes just make it look like I did something around the house. (Is that weird? If so, forget I mentioned it.)
- Learn how to cook – something other than burnt macaroni & cheese.
- Think of resolutions that are more entertaining than these.
That’s all for now, Ellen. I hope your New Year went well.
I must admit that one of my favorite things to do is read other blogs! Love, Love, Love! But, in the spirit of Short Circuit,
photo blogs and well…pretty much any blog that’s entertaining. If you know of any blogs you think I might be interested in, please share the info in the comments. Or, let your blogging friends know that I’m looking for them….in a harmless way….not a psycho kind of way. Happy New Year, everyone! Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have to go pretend I’m cleaning a toilet.
