Have you considered sleeping in a giant calzone? Then you could snack in your sleep.

I'm entering my mid-thirties this year, so I'll probably have to do something about losing some weight. I'm not fat, as such, but my God-given Latino style snakehips are starting to look a little out of place after a good fifteen years of booze and chips.

I think I will try to be a little nicer and more polite as a person, less prone to snapping and sarcasm. I'm noticing that the kids are picking up soem of my natural cynicism and caustic "wit," so I think I will try to restrain myself a little more, for their sake.

To successfully convince Obama to grow a moustache. 

That would be pretty sweet if Obama grew a goatee to play up the whole evil thing with everyone blaming him for everything wrong with the world.  My pops is the best.  It's so easy to get him going.  All I have to do is say "Obama" or he pops up on TV, and my dad will immediately call him a douche and get all flustered and pissed off.  It's hilarious.  If it's not a week I visit, then I call him up and get him going at least once a week.  Good times.

I don't know why I didn't think of that before. You are a very clever bloke.

 

Anyhoo...

I successfully pulled that off over the past year and a half or so (though without it being any sort of strict resolution).  I still swear a bit, but not as much as I used to, and I'm a lot more mellow about everything, taking things in stride.  I still will get worked up once in a while, but I cool off much more quickly and generally before I do or say something I later regret.

So essentially be a little less English?

I could never stop swearing completely. Obviously, I can't swear at work, but other than that, I have a swear jar that is always full of coins. That's how I paid for my first PlayStation 3.

 

I had the no swearing new years resolution one year. I think I lasted 5 minutes before someone drooped their drink and my shirt got a stain.

* Not to cut my scalp hair for 365 days 
* To cut down on sugar and eat more fruits / vegetables
* To look (harder) for a GF

* To finally visit Iceland. I've always wanted to go there (via ship, to get a sense of its remote location) and make an extended hike from one end of the island to the other while making a gazillion of photos far away from overcrowded tourism areas.

As long as they are fake swear words, I can't use them. The knowledge that they are not real does not make them satisfactory words to use.

I resolve to post more beautiful women, bring my GPA up, and find a better apartment.

Well, I've thought about it and my resolutions are:

 

- To start excercising on a more regular basis, specifically do more cardio on my hometrainer. I've been so sedentary recently that I need to keep my body in shape.

 

- Work more on personal projects for my portfolio, specifically a set of long-neglected projects that have been taking far too long.

 

I'm not going to set dates or anything because my mind is a bastard and if I miss one date it takes over and goes "psh, why even bother, you're already a failure, why not just curl up into the fetal position and never do anything ever again, ever?"

I've always wanted to visit Thingvellir (apologies for the spelling Icelandic cousins) and the island of Surtsey, see some of the newest parts of the Earth and the site of one of the first parliaments. Snorri Sturlusson's fault.

For 2014 to be even more awesome than 2013. :) (and listen to more music/see more culture - preferably classic, opera and theatre)

I first read that as "To look (harder) for a gif"  :lol:
