Private Life
2004 Resolutions
  • Become very conversant in the positions of the candidates for President. All the major candidates for the Republicans and Democrats, as well as third party candidates who aren't on the lunatic fringe (e.g., Lyndon LaRouche) or doing it for a lark (e.g., Bob Ott's Let's Have a Pizza Jam party).

    Hmm, didn't do as well as I wanted on this.

  • Have lots of good sex this year. Preferably with a girlfriend. And preferably great sex.


  • Get in good enough shape to be able to dance for a half hour straight at the Mercury without break.


  • Read a book a week on average.

    Check. Surprisingly enough. Am at 50 books so far.

  • Keep my basket o' paper empty.


  • Get a 4 review score.

    Success. With a vengeance.

  • Take a fiction writing class, and start getting some of my ideas written down for the consumption of others.

    Thought about this one a lot. No action. Failure. Anyone know of a fiction writing class that starts in December?

You could take a creative writing class at one of the local community colleges in January.

Oh, and welcome back.

yeah, but that would be too late for 2004. i'd have to make it a 2005 resolution then.

At this point, I doubt that you'll find one soon enough for that.

It's the only failure i even have a chance at. No way i can get in shape by the end of the month.

Most people never live up to even one of their New Year's Resolutions, so I wouldn't consider it a big deal.

If you want to get into shape enough to dance a half hour straight without dying, you should come out dancing with Dom and I on Saturday nights sometime. We'll keep your ass on the dance floor. Granted, we dance at the Vogue, but it's a nice change of pace once in a while and the more the merrier.
