I’m really getting into the Christmas spirit. It’s nice. The tree is up at the House of Rock and I suppose some resemblence of Christmas shopping will soon take place. I really appreciate those moments where you can just settle and enjoy that feeling which Christmas defines so well. Hot chocolate, fireplaces, sweaters, and heavy consumerism.
Time to start making a list of new goals for 2006.
2005 was the year of fitness, and it went pretty well. I do not yet know what 2006 will bring. Suggestions are welcome.

I suggest the following. If 2005 was a year of fitness then 2006 should be the year of the Giver. You should give of yourself this year. Set goals that involve you “giving back”. Set a goal to fix a major part of your house without hiring a professional. example- That toilet upstairs starts leaking, fix it yourself. Buy a DIY Plumbing book and fix it. Not only will you be saving money, but you sill be teaching yourself a usefull trade. Another one could be Volunteer at a soup kitchen 2 times a month or 25 times this year. I’m assuming you aren’t going to give up on your fitness goals, but with this at least you can better yourself spiritually and mentally, while making this world a better place. OOhhh here is another one: Attend the Neighborhood watch meetings, or volunteer at an elementary school for tutoring, Plant a tree at a park, clean up a park, Be a Big Brother. MikeD the possibilities are endless.
I’d make it the year of the finger-tapping guitar solo.
I was going to suggest year of getting frustrated with kiteboarding and then giving your Globeride to Ryan, but Ben’s suggestion is far superior. Two votes for finger-tapping! But first you will have to go see Manowar live, to fully appreciate the finer subtleties of finger-tapping heavy metal.
* Globerider, my apologies to the former Wipika/Takoon designers who are awesome.
2006: Year of the Dog.
2006: Year of learning how to weld awesome things.
2006: Year of trading Meowstro (AKA Fidel Catstro AKA Chairman Meow) for your Dyson without Ruth’s knowledge.
2006: Year of bikes.
2006: Year of learning how to paint.
2006: Year of being a lathargic slug.
2006: Year of getting your comments flagged as spam.
Sorry ’bout that! I have authorized your questionable posts.
Ryan’s calender looks like this:
1984: Year of Jumping Off of Things
1985: Year of Jumping Off of Things
1986: Year of Jumping Off of Things
2004: Year of Jumping Off of Things
2005: Year of Jumping Off of Things
2006: Year of Jumping Off of Things
the spam robot may have seen a mullet and freaked out.
but you didn’t hear it from me.
I dunno Mike, I think you should make 2006 the year of Taking. Screw “giving”. Start off by pretending you’re homeless and try to get free meals at shelters.
Seen a mullet and freaked out by sheer jealous awe, I believe so.
