wow, are you the resolution fairy? can i visit for a weekend?

Great list.... Support from Thor and all your friends....that might do it.

Those are fine things to accomplish!

Attending a Civil War re-enactment sounds fascinating! I've always wanted to do one of those, especially since my beard is getting long.

You just need to motivate yourself properly!

Support from friends would be encouraging.

I'm learning how to sew right now, and loving it!

Hope you get to cross some of your 2012 items off this year. If you find yourself in the NH area I can teach you the basics of sewing - I'm more about utilitarian sewing than fine tailoring (not counting fursuits). If you are going to FC, go book a session with Big Red Paul - best massage I've ever had.

Yeah! I'm planning to be at FC. And I love Paul... though he warned me that you can either be a client or a buddy of his, but not both. If you know what I mean. So, that's the reason I've never gotten a massage from him. I'm holding out for more.

ALl the Civil War guys I ever met are friendly. We have a straight biker whose frended us, and we talk regularly.

I keep on wonderin' ... when they're re-inacting a war and one of them "dies" ... one with a big beard ... does that give me license (as far as history goes) to go over and pee on him?

I mean, he's dead, right? So he can't complain, right?

Good luck and sally forth ...
