Five Large, I hope one of your resolutions this year is to not accidentally kill anyone, including yourself, while masturbating with your guns. And that you attempt to refrain from profiting from the deaths of children.

@61 - I wish this too for the same reasons.

@24 - Fred Casely - I'm in the NoVA area. If you ever make it out of DC proper & you're not too nuts maybe next year I'll invite you to my New Year's brunch. ;)

Moments like this make me wish SLOG had a message system to ping someone. I realize how ripe for abuse such a system would be, so it ain't happening. Still.

Resolutions: be healthier, drink more water & MAKE MORE ART. (& writings.)

Find more compassion in my heart for those whom I find reprehensible. Use the term "peckerwood" less in describing my enemies, however applicable it seems, and chant for their enlightenment. Chant more, period; meditate more, in all senses of the word. Write more; perform more; self-produce more; audition more; put in more time at the dojo. Do more things that scare me. Cultivate more gratitude, deeper gratitude.

Oh, and let me be the first to be grateful that John "fuckwit" Bailo has finally opted to infest some other part of teh Internet's other than Slog with his muddled, halfwit dribblings.

Mostly, I aim to continue being alive in 2014. Nothing like a close call to remind one how precious life is, and how easy it actually is to make simple changes that promote longevity over immediate gratification.

Also, I aim to continue being a crotchety old fart on every online forum I participate in. Including Slog.

Lastly, I will continue using two spaces after a period. Because that's just right.

Oh, and really lastly, ride more with the goal of doing a century this year (or before I die). I did a half-century before turning 50 (barely) so it's possible. Or I could die. The universe is strikingly random that way.

Lastly (for real this time) dress more for dinner too. A real dinner at the table too. Not with plates balanced on knees with the boob tube blaring manufactured crap at us, as Mrs. Dr. Awesome prefers.

No resolutions from me. "I will do more of this. I will do less of that." Just goals. "This year, this is what I need to accomplish and this is how I'm going to do it."

Revolution. Overthrow white men. Learn from how they treat local Duwamish, immigrants, black people, women, trans people, disabled people, nature, animals. Investigate feasibility of camps.

Increase my efforts to protect K-12 student data - your kid, my kid, everyone's kids. No district, no state should get to decide arbitarily who sees what data (like discipline records, adoption, family financial status, etc.).

We're the adults and need to protect kids until they can make their own choices.

You may believe privacy is eroding but everyone has a line. This is mine.

(And, pray every day for people who are fighting cancer.)

I like @15, @17, and @18's ideas.

Mine: drink less, exercise more. Maybe start smoking weed on the reg as a replacement vice for booze.

And ignore obvious trolls like @39. (If written as satire, though, it's very good. A+ if that is the case. F- otherwise.)

Keep on being a good-enough Mom, and improve if possible.
Improve my sex skills. And my harp skills. And my tatting skills. And my sewing skills.
Find a third lover !
Repair everything in my home. Do the house chores in time. And then, invite more often people home.

@1, plus, use "prit near" in more sentences in 2014, in honor of my late grandfather.

This one came to me while watching "Nebraska" last night.

But, seriously: I've always thought a great plan for New Year's Day was to have a day-long open house. Invite anyone you'd like to see and tell them to come over whenever.

Since we just moved here (D.C.) a couple of months ago and hardly know anyone here, it couldn't really happen today. Maybe that should be my resolution: Make enough friends here this year to make that feasible next year.

Study study study. When the internet is boring, don't try to seek out more internet.

Easier said than done, I've been prepping for a bunch of things lately and all the nonfiction books are dreadfully dull.

I am crap at resolutions. But I came up with one three years ago that I have managed to keep virtually 99% of the time...

For the first time in my life, I have started carrying cash. And when I buy something at a local store, I pay cash.

Sometimes I use my credit card in a restaurant -- chain, or over-the-top stupid expensive (I'm talking about you, Mickey Mantle's steakhouse in Bricktown, Oklahoma City -- although it was the best steak I've ever had in my life) -- then the tip is always always always paid in cash.

Keep the bucks circulating in the community, rather than going to the banks.

There are ATMS everywhere now.
