Delusional Dissolutions

It's that time of the year again.  It's time to make those New Year's Revolutions.


Oh.  It's not "revolution".

Yeah, good catch. The only thing revolving around here is my head after a bit of wine.  

Let me try again.  

Resolutions.  Goals.  Yeah, that's it. 

They should be SMART goals:

S - Sarcastic
M- Memorable
A - Antagonistic
R - Retarted
T - Tasty


Oh, sorry.  I was hungry.  Maybe "T" shouldn't be for Tasty.  How about Tempting?

Example:   I will win the lottery (sarcastic, memorable, tempting) but will not share any of the winnings with my bloggy buddies (antagonistic).  I will do this by not purchasing a lottery ticket (sarcastic, retarded). 


AnyMeasurableGoal, I hope you had a great Christmas.  Did you have any awkward Christmas moments?  My mom had one when my brother opened a gift.   It was a shirt.  Underneath the shirt was a pair of white silk long johns.  Oops.  Those were for me.  

No.  I will not model them for you.

I hope you have some kind of plans for bringing in the new year.  Me?  Hubby and I hope to have a winey dinner at the house and watch movies. 

SMART - Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic, Time-bound.  Go for it.  

H A P P Y   N E W   Y E A R!!!

I really have no realistic resolutions - well, maybe just one: to clean my room. Yeah, I'm still a teenager (and lazy) at heart.

Whatever you decide, resolve to have a Happy New Year!

Ha! Wine and silk long johns go with everything!

My revolutions always begin and end with wine (-;

I can't imagine this year will be much different.

If it ain't broke ...(-:

I don't make resolutions. Why bother?

By the way, your mom also sent me a pair of white silk long johns. Love 'em, but were they meant for you?

Ziva said...

SMART goals, huh? I have nothing.

Suzanne said...

Okay, awkward Christmas moment: My cousin took a picture of my mom and me, right before she snapped the picture I said, "Say douche bag." I'll post the pic on FaceBook, hopefully tonight.
Resolution: Get the hell out of my going no where job.

Happy New Year Carol!

I'll drink to that - movie and booze. Happy Early New Year. My resolution is to get rid of this cold in my node.

@00dozo - I'm on my way to help you clean your room.

@Mrsblogalot - Yes, wine is a good thing! "I will drink at least 3 glasses of wine a week." Is that a good goal?

@Mike - Of course not. You're "older" now so you probably won't even remember the resolutions once you make them. ;-)

@Ziva - Less chance of failure.

@Sue - Take this job and shovel ;-) Good Luck!

@Lauren - Achoo! I hope it's gone soon.

Leeuna said...

Happy New Year Reffie. Wayne and I will probably welcome in the new year with movies and "whine".

Unknown said...

If I have any revolutions, I'll just be dizzier than I already am! Resolutions? Eh, just one as said above-Get a real flippin' job (at home, online & away from people...heehee) Happy New Year, my friend! May 2011 bring more happiness, health & wealth than we know what to do with! (((HUGS)))

I know it's boring but I never make resolutions.

why set yourself up for failure at the beginning of a brand spanking new year?

Ivy said...

SMART - Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic, Time-bound. Go for it.

Time-bound. I can honestly say that is one I've never done. I've always been the one to say "this year I'm gonna (fill in the blank with goal not achieved)."

Hmm... maybe this is where I went wrong!

Marissa said...

This year, I want to teach my cat Trixie to clean out her own litter box. So far, she's pretending she has no idea what I'm talking about.

ReformingGeek said...

@Leeuna - I hope the whine went well.

@Collette - **HUGS** Here's to you winning the lottery!

@Jean - So just getting up every day is an accomplishment? ;-)

@Ivy - Well...."this year" is time-bound but breaking it down into tasks with shorter timeframes might help.

@Marissa - Hum...let me know how that goes....

Mama-Face said...

oh my gosh. My son gave me a lesson THIS NEW YEARS on the SMART tactic of achieving goals. I still don't understand. There's a goal for you. I mean me.

"1.00s, 1.50s, 1.75s for the short arms. If you know what I'm talking about, you're probably old, too."

"Boomer brain fog: What was the last, middle, and first part of what you just said to me?"
