New Year's Resolutions



I have a theory about new year's resolutions. They have to be something that I can accomplish by myself. They can't depend on somebody doing something for me. For example, "write a 300 page book" would be a good goal. "Become a top ten selling author" isn't a good goal, because it relies on mass popularity - something I have little control over.

So, is my list of new year's resolutions for 2008. I think it's going to be a good year!

1. Leave to dive: scuba certification for both wetsuit and drysuit
2. Go ATV mudding
3. Take mining classes at the Colorado School of Mines (or police classes at the Citizen's Academy)
4. Ride roughstock at the rodeo
5. Have a lot of kinky sex (oops, that one depends on one or more people to accomplish)

I didn't do very good at my resolutions this year, but I've done pretty good in past years:

Gone Baby Gone



I got in my first real gloves-off throw-down hockey fight. It was my fault... I've been playing rugby lately, so I have a tendency to drop my shoulder and hit guys harder than I should for an amateur adult no-checking hockey league. When I didn't get called for a penalty, the guy decided to shark me around the ice in order to get a cheap hit and some revenge. He punched me in the head, and I got a scratch under my eye and on my nose as the cage came up but the helmet didn't come off. I grabbed him and there was some pushing and shoving, but that was pretty much it for the fight.

Anyway, I'll be gone to Paris, France for the Christmas holiday, and then up to Belgium for new year's. The next time I'll be around is in 2008. See you next year!
