Today’s Music: Ricky Nelson – Garden Party
Note On Today’s Music: The song is apropos of nothing, just a nice mellow number But if you don’t know it already, look up the story behind the song.
Welcome, welcome all! Brand new month! Brand new year! Same old foolishness! What wasn’t the same old though was some of the stuff I read this week!
Red put up her latest site! Carrie is very excited about something, and TC History Gal gave me a Wonderful Team Member Readership award, and I couldn’t be more honored!
Thanks to them, and all of you for letting me finish and start the year in such great company!
Last week, in between the eating and the drinking and the rushing and that horrible, tragic tofu and butter incident, the calendar rolled over. As happens every year, tons of resolutions were made (admit it, you made some). So we asked the most relevant question – What resolution will you break first?
Here’s what you said. (As always, my answers will only last a few days in italics.)
To vote in these damn polls on Friday & not Thursday at 11:59pm! SheSnaaped

To enjoy a very nice Picnic, oh that is a choco bar Androgoth
(That choco bar is for eating, Andro. Andro?!?)
The early to bed clause, unless there is a good reason Androgoth
(Laziness is an excellent reason! Or…so I’ve heard…)
My resolution to not make New Year’s Resolutions…Ugh. KJ

Not to break resolutions, then something about eating. Carrie Cannibalistic Nerd

(I bet the squirrels have some resolutions they would like to share with you!)
not to make resolutions anymore… NBI
(You sound very…resolute.)

Congratulations to Anonymous for this weeks winning answer! And from the offered choices, the most popular was , Resolutions? We don’t need no stinking resolutions so congrats to everyone that wants to struggle through the year with no fixed purpose forced on them by tradition!
This week, it’s all about dealing with the consequences of our actions. Yep, we’re going to have to face up to all teh bad decisions we’ve made over the last several weeks. On the bright side, if we start now, we’ll be in fine shape for beach season! (Yes, I want to fit properly into my banana-hammock this sumer!)
So below is this weeks question. Answer now or think about it over a snack. But answer by 2359 EST, 10 Jan, because that’s when this one ends.
And until next week, here’s some Mitch Hedberg that I hope you enjoy! (One warning – dude’s a potty mouth. Big time.)
First, there’s a sandwich recipe here that I hope at least one of you try!
And there’s a little overlap here, but it’s worth it, just for “spaghetti”. You’ll see it when it comes around.
