Any New Year's Resolutions?

Postby bigken117 » Thu Jan 01, 2009 12:08 am

Eat better...
Drink less...
Be nicer at work...


Not mine, I don't have any. If I needed something, it would be to get my sh|t in order, like I have 2 years of old bills that need to be shredded cluttering up space in my back room.


What are some of yours?

Pass on the 'Buffalo Theory' to another generation. :-b


One night at Cheers, Cliff Clavin explained the "Buffalo Theory" to his buddy, Norm: "Well ya see, Norm, it's like this: A herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo. And, when the herd is hunted, it is the slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first. "This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole, because the general speed and health of the whole group keeps improving by the regular killing of the weakest members." In much the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells. Excessive intake of alcohol, as we know, kills brain cells. But naturally, it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way, regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. "That's why you always feel smarter after a few beers." :-D

3. Learn more.
4. Be more organised with money.
5. Drive giantsfan14 into psychiatric care.

Mine are similar.

Drink better...

Work at being nicer...

Really though, I don't make resolutions. But I have big expectations for 2009. 2007 was the worst year of my life; I have no complaints about '08. We can build on this! I have big plans for 2008, but none of them are really resolutions. Also, Captain Morgans Private Reserve is my new favorite thing. It's like regular Camptain Morgans, only better, and vanilla-y.

I don't make any resolutions, but if I had to, it's to get better at roto.

My wife graduates from law school in May and I've found a job with better pay so I guess our goal is to actually get started on life as we near 30.

+1 for the Herm Edwards reference.

Agree completely on the Private Stock. ;-D
