oh snow and boredom

don't feel like posting. here's a song.

Why Do You Let Me Stay Here? - She and Him

i don't care much for zooey deschanel as an actress. honestly, i think her eyes are dead on screen and she annoys the hell out of me. BUT, as an indie rock darling, she's cute, and her voice is cute, and her pop songs are good, and i like her.
like this song, feels like summer, and the beach. and i miss being warm.

i resolve...

i typed in the words 'i resolve' to google and here are some of my favorites:

"Be more tolerant of climate change naysayers" - i'm assuming this one was written by a weatherman. or maybe al gore.
"Clip my toenails once a month, whether they need it or not" - resolutions about simple hygiene make me wonder about the social norms inside this persons head.
"To Make Resolutions for Those Who Especially Need Them" - wow. i could go on and on about the ethics of this, but it sounds like too much fun. just may be my next post.
"to stop being a phoney and typing “LOL” when I didn’t really “laugh out loud”" - thank you. i knew you weren't laughing out loud.
"to visit taco trucks" - ok then.
"I resolve to give up all candy for the year 2009" - why would you set yourself up for failure??
"not make any more new years resolutions"- yeah, real original there cranky pants, just because you can't keep yours, don't disparage the rest of us.

i do not resolve...

every year i make resolutions, and like most, i don't really bother to keep them, usually. but, the ritual of making resolutions (just like my absolute love of making lists) is extremely satisfying. so, every year, i diligently make my list, and i diligently break my list in a few months. my faithful standbys; lose weight, get healthy, live for the day, stop wasting time, read more, create more, speak french. this year, i say every year, this year will be different. but it never is, as is human nature. predictably irrational.

without further ado, my list of resolutions for 2009. things i will NOT do, instead of things i will do. who knows, maybe this will be my year.

1. i will continue to not wear crocs.
2. i will not drink my daily calorie intake in one sitting every evening.
3. i will not continue to worry about my weight.
4. i will not knit another wash cloth or scarf. (so over it)
5. i will not spend a hundred dollars (or more) during every trip to ikea.
6. i will not throw out twenty dollars worth of groceries every week.
7. i will not let the economic downturn and our horrible financial situation consume me.
8. i will not spend 2-3 combined hours on facebook every day. (yeah, i know)
9. i will not say 'retarded' to describe everything. (blagh)
10. i will not take for granted my husband, my child or my lot in life.

i can handle this.
resolutions, i got it.
