New Year’s Resolution

I wouldn’t say I’m a huge fan of New Year’s Resolutions. It’s not that I don’t think there are things we or – more specifically, I – should aim for or decide to accomplish. It’s just that I don’t think setting the resolution right on the first of the year is necessarily the best bet.

You see, any master procrastinator knows their patterns, ridiculous little OCD-ish “reasons” for not starting something important right at the moment they realize a change needs to be made. Need to lose a few pounds? I should probably finish the food in my fridge before I start my new diet so it doesn’t all go to waste, or I should probably wait until after my birthday next week since there will be cake and, you know, that would totally just ruin my whole healthy eating pattern right there and OH MY GOD LET ME SEE HOW MANY MORE EXCUSES I CAN COME UP WITH.

Yes, that needed to be in all caps.

And it’s in that same master procrastinator spirit that I bobble my head at the, “So, what are your New Year’s resolutions?” questions. I mean, do I have things I’d really, really, really like to accomplish this year? You bet your ass I do. But do I think that plastering them all over the Internets will help me accomplish them? Not so much, no.

But my husband has asked me to make “Stop head bobbling” my resolution for this year, and so it shall be.

Some of you may be wondering what this whole head bobbling business is all about, and so I present to you the highly contagious, completely awesome, just as completely annoying and ever so hard to quit Head Bobble. Please pardon the terrible quality – it was the best I could find.

And this is where you come in (*cough, cough* so I have someone to blame if it doesn’t work out, *cough, cough*). For those of you who follow my rather sporadic blogging and actually see me face-to-face on a regular basis, if you see a bobble, a friendly nudge would be greatly appreciated. Please and thank you.
