What's on your list? Anything?

Here's mine:

1) 35" waist. If it takes losing pounds, fine. I'm more concerned with inches and fitting into my good clothes! I'm at 36" and growing right now. Gotta fix that.

2) Exercise more. Whether it leads to losing the weight or not, I don't care. The main thing is cardio and lung capacity.

3) Go back to Church. I'm officially "middle-aged." Most people are dead before 83 and I'm halfway there. Gotta get right with the Man (or Woman) upstairs.

4) Spend less time playing on the internet posting things like New Year's resolutions.

1) Exercise more, I like to stay in shape, but never find the time to do something good for my body (I guess those gallons of double chocolate fudge ice cream doesn't help either ;)).

Well, that's about it!

I started mine, on my birthday, 2 weeks ago, and THAT was to quit cigarettes once & for all. I've quit 2 times in the past, once for a week, and once for 3 months. This time, well this time I am gonna make it forever ~ this time I am going to be successful!! I smoked for 42 years. Just had a complete physical, ultra sounds, scopes, body fluids tested, blood taken, you name it, & I had it ! 4 different doctors, and over $ 1,700 in medical bills. Result ? Everything is perfect, not a flaw, except high blood pressure, which is kept in check with pills. So, I am thinkfull and don't wanna push my luck. Another 42 years withOUT ciggies !! My lungs are clear, heart is perfect (recovered from being broken, torn, stapled and bent in 1974). ;)

1) See the kids more (you think taking six weeks out to travel round Europe will void this?)

2) Spend more time with Claire

3) Buy a Bentley (I said I'd do it this year, but I didnt)

4) Drop a waist size

Just remember not to let it be too big a thing for you.

She probably wont, but just in case she does turn you down, just say something like "no problem, another time"

Good luck to you and Dope!

I can hear the first date conversation, as Dope picks her up:

"Foxy Lady" :- Ewww, is THIS your FATHER'S car?

Dope: Naw, it's MINE ~ My Baby !

"Foxy Lady" - "Ewww, it's sooooo big ~ it's like my GrandPaws Lincoln; is it a Lincoln ??"

Dope: No! It's a CAD-O-LAC! Fleeetwoood Bro-HAM !

"Foxy Lady" :- "Ewww, why do wnat THIS ? ~ I like HONDAs and Nissans!" ~ The're waaay cool"

Dope: No, this is real luxury, you can recline and feel the smooth ride.

Foxy Lady :- "All my friends have Toy O tas" ~~ I like Toy -O Tas" ~ This is like a old man's yacht type beached whale boat car thingieee"

Dope takes her to White Castle buys her fries & Coke & rightfully takes her home! End of Foxy Lady.

More like "ditches her at White Castle..." There's no set of (.)(.)'s out there that can talk shit about MY precious love-mobile. Haha, actually she's been in my car and likes it. She said my Caddy reminded her of the Plymouth from Christine because she could see my car coming to life at night and murdering my enemies. LOL! That I have to say was the best compliment I've ever recieved on my car. And actually fast food is usually what we eat when we go out. Haha. She's more used to riding in my Chevy since that's what I take up to school. She can't have anything negative to say about any of my cars. She drives a Focus, so she's one to talk.... Haha naah she's really sweet though and we get along perfectly. We were very, very, VERY compatable....

LOL! Sorry. You wouldn't believe how many people still don't know. Being a Manson fan I always have to answer lots of stupid questions on his behalf. Wearing a Manson shirt pretty much makes you an Information Center on the man. I've heard them all, like my personal favorites.....

Idiot: "Is it true that he had two of his ribs removed so he could suck his own-"

DopeStar: "No, it's not. You would also have to add vertebrae and no one would survive that kind of operation....."

Idiot: "Oh.... well is it true he was the kid from The Wonder Years?"

DopeStar: "No, his real name is Brian Warner, he's from Canton, Ohio and was not the kid from The Wonder Years....."

Idiot: "Oh, well those boobs he had in that video he got implants rig-"

DopeStar: "No it was a body suit......"

Idiot: "Is his eye really that color because I read-"

So you can see how stupid some people can be and how "war bitten" I've become from the experiences.... Don't believe everything you hear people....

I have looked into Freemasonry and it's a pretty good organization. It does emphasize growth in the things that Kev mentioned as well as community involvement.

My New Year's resolutions are:
1.Lose weight
2. Make more money
3. Buy another car or 2
4. Work on being a better husband, father, and brother
5. Find another job to help me accomplish #s 2,3, and 6.
6. Start saving for the purchase of a home at age 30.
7. Continue the trend started at the beginning of 2006(in the black ink and my savings growing).
8. This ties in everything: Strengthen my spiritual life.

Resolutions?

1) Exercise more
2) Have more nights I can't remember, and be able to blame them on alcohol, not senility
3) More power from the Fleetwood
4) A cooking job I enjoy, and can learn with, and make money from
5) Figure out what I want from my relationship with the g/f.

I never pick anything too serious for a resolution, most of my resolutions are mere tests of will power. I started a tradition with a friend of mine years ago that we would give up something odd, yet substantial, each year. Previous years I have given up; Fried foods (all of them, potato chips, french fries, wings, etc), coffee, chocolate, cursing (failed on that one) and this year I will try to give up carbonated beverages.

Hope everyone has a safe new years celebration and a prosperous new year.

After the year I've had, my life could use one of those extreme makeovers. But I'm keeping my resolutions within reason:

Get serious about learning to play the piano. I started learning back in 1998 and got so I could play a handful of pieces I liked, but I haven't seen it through and I've barely played at all the past couple of years. I've got a beautiful old upright piano that deserves to be more than just a piece of furniture in my living room.
Live within my means and start rebuilding my savings.
Exercise at least three times a week. I've got a treadmill my ex left, and when the weather is nice, I can ride my bike or walk the dog.
Stop cussing so damn much. Oops.

Previous years I have given up; Fried foods (all of them, potato chips, french fries, wings, etc), coffee, chocolate, cursing (failed on that one) and this year I will try to give up carbonated beverages.

Gotta give you credit for the willpower, but I could never do it. Need my coffee in the morning, Diet Coke later in the day and chocolate whenever I feel like it.

i dont like saving resolutions just for new years, but if i had to here they are...

1) better school grades
2) find a girlfriend (being single sucks, although i do have more $$$)
3) have fun

how about we give up on the "trouser monster" for a month!?!?!?
Can anyone do it?!?!?!


I did for over a year once... However currently the g/f can't go a week without it.

Less than 24 hours into the new year, and I've already broken four.

1) Didn't go to church this morning
2) Ate like a pig at mom's tonight--I feel FAT right now.
3) Spent two hours surfing Amazon tonight
4) Didn't get on the treadmill today like I planned to last night.

So far, not bad. No cussing, even when my wireless router acted up. Spent several sessions tickling the ivories—OK, more like stumbling around on the keyboard. But I'm surprised that even though it's been months, I wasn't as rusty as I expected. I'm working on Claire de Lune, Für Elise and Moon River, and while it's slow and halting, with multiple missed notes, you can tell what it's at least supposed to be. Just have to keep at it.
