I wish each and everyone of you a Happy New Year. May you have the best year of your miseralb....er....lives. :D
I find the assault on free thought disturbing,
I find the willingness to give it up frightening.

    I've never made a resolution.
  • BuffcoBuffco Senior Member Posts: 10,239 Senior Member
    I just did. In 2014, I will acquire bagpipes.

    Just to blow your animal minds... it's 2014 right now in Australia.

    Settle down Mr. Big Dreams Jr (remember?). Why don't you just give up oxygen while you are at it.

    Same to you Wetdog.

    Sherb...been there done that. Good for you. You'll physically feel better for it.
  • Same to everybody. Many happy returns.

    My resolution is to make the best Hextall we can all enjoy.

    a happy new year is waking up to the sound of footsteps that AREN'T coming to draw a blood sample or collect your vitals. :-)

    Wish you all a healthy, happy 2014.
  • There were no hot nurses with tats? Bummer.
  • creekguycreekguy Senior Member Posts: 3,905 Senior Member
    And everybody please have a great year to come.

    My resolute Resolution: to spend less time on the web, including u-no-where! Well, its more like a wish, or an idle self suggestion. Really, i'm just prepping myself to do it in 2015.

    Otherwise, I resolve NOT to fear the end of Quantitative Easing.

    a couple of hot nurses, but didn't see any tats in evidence -- then again, they usually snuck up on me at 2 a.m. and my main goal was just to fall back asleep.

    You are the Maximus Decimus Meridius of the Lodge. Your goal should be to entertain us with pictures of women with tats...and maybe of kittens.
  • ouzelproouzelpro Senior Member Posts: 5,361 Senior Member
    No kittens, please. Happy Next Year!
  • Bak4MorBak4Mor Senior Member Posts: 970 Senior Member
    Merry new year. I resolve to spend more time here.

    Totally...a hospital is no place to get any rest at all!



    Happy New Year to everyone

    I've started cutting way back on the diet DP. And limiting most soft drinks.

    Eating better and healthier most days of the week. I'll still have something good that is bad for me, just not as often.

    Happy New Year to all!
    I have a cold so I'm just starting a nice, tall gin & tonic. You never know when the common cold can turn into malaria so I'm taking no chances.
    I'm going to take puppy for a walk in the country tomorrow and start my 2014 bird sightings list.

    Diet Coke and DP is good?

    Who knew?

    These days the only sweet drinks I like are, or are based on, Campari, red vermouth and green Chartreuse. And those are few and far between. Since I started taking methotrexate for my arthritis I'm only allowed two or three drinks a month, and I'm not going to waste them on Campari or vermouth unless they are in a Negroni or Manhattan.

    Negronis are awesome! I'm out of Campari and did not want to brave the state store over the past week.
    I've never had one in a bar, I've only made them myself since I've discovered Campari early this year. I'm looking forward to having one mixed by someone who knows what they are doing.

    I do indeed. How is the purchase of the Boston Whaler coming?

    You know that scene when Kuato gets shot in Total Recall and he's gasping for a breath while trying to relay on last message to Quaid? In that exact state of being, Kuato would have so much more strength than my dream of a Boston Whaler that he could suplex the dream off the top rope and then smash it to bits with a folding chair.
  • HextallHextall Senior Member Posts: 9,520 Senior Member
    I should note though, that in the ashes of the Boston Whaler purchase, arises a new dream... a full suspension mountain bike. I actually have a spreadsheet with various makes and models cataloged to bring my dream to fruition!

    When one dream dies, another is born. It is the circle of life.

    ARGHH! You would go and ruin my New Year's fantasy by using the two words that do not appear in my inventory because of all the unimportant crap - food, bills, car and house maintenance etc. - that have prevented the purchase of a Whaler throughout my life. My Porta-Bote just ain't the same.
