Personally, I don’t bother with them. I’d probably forget whatever resolutions I’d make in the first place.
I tend to do better with setting short term goals for myself. Once a goal is met, I may create another goal (for the same task) and so on. It’s a lot easier to keep track of things that way.
Here’s what some other professionals have to say about new years resolutions
Thankfully the office closed early today. By the time I’d left, 7th Ave was already closed and the barricades were being erected.
Tonight sounds like a cold and crazy one
Gov. Blago appoints a Senator…whom no one wants to have appointed.
Is this a foreshadowing of what could happen in NYC with Hillary’s seat?
IAF unleashes massive strike on Hamas tunnel network near Rafah
The real question should be…why has Israel waited so long to do this?
Bonus: There’s video too from the IDF!
Something that came to mind this morning..NY area teams whose names end in “ets” seem to choke when it comes time to clinch a playofff spot.
Like ever morning, i went through the usual paces on the subway, transferring at 59th St (and Lex) to the downtown N/R line. It’s something I’ve done countless times.
So when the N train pulled up on the downtown platform, I got on, still in m earl morning daze (it was about 6am). With my attention half in the newspaper, I realize that it’s taking longer than usual to get to the next stop. Next thing I know–I’m in Queens!
Apparently some Queens bound trains were being re-routed on the downtown track. Of course, the MTA, being the efficient organization that it is, didn’t have any signs uip alerting riders.
THe Browns showed both GM Phil Savage and coach Romeo Crennel the door in the past 24 hours.
It was a horrendous 4-12 season for the Browns.
Heck, at least we did better than the Lions
Anyone else noticing that Facebook and Fark are down this morning?
Party was a lot of fun…not much of a mess left behind
Lots of beer and wine leftover…anyone want to come over to visit?
The headline says it all: Scientific illiteracy all the rage among the glitterati
Anyone really suprised?
Granted, the “glitterati” in this article also included politicians too (not suprising either)
Operation “cast lead”: The IDF launched a massive operation, striking Hamas installations throughout the Gaza Strip on Saturday.
The wide-scale offensive on Hamas installations in the Gaza Strip was codenamed ‘Operation Cast Lead,’ after a Hanukkah poem by H.N. Bialik referring to a “dreidel cast from solid lead.”
A good opening salvo, but the IDF really needs to go in and make a very decisive statement (unlike Lebanon in 2006).
24 years ago @ 0923h out at LIJ the Sister was born
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO THE SISTER!
Big party here tonight….much prep to do
Took the brother to the gym and the work all day today.
Mom is staying through the weekend here. Sister’s big party is tomorrow night and there’s lots of prep/cleaning to do…
Besides patronize the Bodegas and 7-11s (that seem to be the only things open)…the NYT has some ideas
Personally, if the family wasn’t coming to visit today, I’d definitely hit up the 92nd St Y’s screening of The Life of Brian and The Holy Grail!
Bush reverses a pardon
Bush may also want to find out who recommended said pardon in the first place (and then who vetted it) and stick Darth Cheney on those persons.
I’ve got to write a roast for this weekend.
Problem is–I’ve got no clue how to write a roast (that’s not something I learned in school or any supplemental writing classes).
Ideas are very much welcome
Time for the annual classic (in all it’s geeky goodness!):
The Physics of Santa Claus
and of course, equal time for the
Rebuttal of the physics of Santa Claus
No, not necessarily in the sense of a ketogenic of fat-adapted diet.
Rather, a Beverly Hills cosmetic surgeon used fat from liposuction patients to fuel his vehicle!
Granted, there’s a bit of illegality involved here (it’s probably illegal to use human medical waste in such a way). What is interesting though, is the mention that some of the major meat/poultry providers are looking to use the extra shmaltz from their plants to fuel their (truck) fleets. Sound pretty cool.
Two Hannukah (or Channukah) stories that have their origins in New York City and Long Island.
The first is the Major League Dreidel competition–taking place at a bar on the LES. The league with a thankfully short season, features a game of dreidel very different from what previous generations of LES residents played.
Meanwhile out on Long Island, there was the potato latke eating competition. The winner, a 6’2″ bodybuilder, downed 46 latkes (7 lbs) in 8 minutes! (He has to be bulking–but even still, that’s just sick)
