New year's resolution  
To serve life in all of its forms, and not be so much of a dick.

I think that about covers it. Happy 2006.

I'm quitting smoking right now, and I've got this one in for the long haul. I have a strong urge right now to pile every book I own into crates and give them away, an urge which lasts for the first three days of every year. I'm fighting off this sensation by relaxing alone for the first time in two weeks. X-men's not as good as I remember; King of New York is about "eh" so far. Secondhand Lions is still good.

I wish I was far more coherent than I am.

Kudos on the smoking, both for health reasons and because tobacco farming is custom-made to destroy the environment and keep developing and marginalized countries poor. Which are processes I'd imagine you're against. So you're fighting the good fight for non-self-interest reasons as well. Thought you might appreciate knowing that. Break a leg.

"Kudos" as we all know is Norwegian for "that was a good job you did, sonny jim rose".

congrats both of you on trying to quit!

I... don't smoke. But I do appreciate the support.

I don't read livejournals so much as skim them.
But good luck, that's great. While I do have many a black dress, I would like you alive longer rather than...shorter? I hear making water your best friend helps. Yeah, I'm done.

Well, that just makes it harder, doesn't it?

Yeah, that being a dick thing is kind of your deal-breaker. I mean, I remember this one time, you were being a dick and... wait. No, that was another one. Not so much a dick. A bit self deprecating.

Or wait, were you referring to that thing... with the seals? That's on a whole other schema, friend.

Good plan. I will learn to operate a motor vehicle, and in our own ways, we will be better human beings. Well, you'll be a better human being. I may just know how to drive a car.

Seriously though, I like your New Year's resolution. I tend to get behind the ones that are very specific or very general. Yours falls into the second category, and is, well, good.

I am tired, and thus ineloquent. Don't give your books away.

Don't give all of your books away

Don't cut off your wang

Don't be a stranger

I find this wonderfully complimentary to my own resolutions:
Learn to serve man
and kick dick ass. (gramttically correct in terms of the slang, but weird)

doc
you were a dick? maybe i just didnt pick up on some sarcasm back then. i say you get married in 2006. that would be a fun resolution. or how about taking up some long distance travel. like maybe japan. i think you need to internationalize. that should be your resolution.

i guess serving all lifeforms is decent as well. im taking baby steps. serve most life forms. i dont want to deal with all the inherent contradictions.

really, though, everyone that wants to smile should have "play chibi-robo" as a new years resolution. seriously.

that and give up on god already ( i have to keep up my militant atheist something something ). that should be another resolution.

anyway, kyoto wishes for you to visit.
