Happy New Year!!
Let all acquaintance be forgot...
Oh, we're over New Year?
....we've been over it for a week now?
I guess that means I'm right on cue.
This girl is what we would call a late-bandwagon-jumper-on-er. I mean, if that were a real thing. And used real words.
While it was still the cool thing to do, I read through
Some bloggers were pretty reasonable, like "buy toilet paper before I run out," and "wash my hair when it gets dirty." My favorite: "eat and breathe."
But others were out of their minds. Srsly, you're going to build a miniature version of the Great Wall of China out of Chiclets??
That would be impressive, actually.
I used to make resolutions when I was younger. They were usually a combination of serious, totally unattainable, and nonsensical. I wanted puppies, more estrogen for the purpose of a certain focused development (ahem), and Brad Pitt. Because for goodness sake at 16 years old what else could I actually need to make my life better?
Now that I have a little bit more life under my belt, and I don't mean that literally even though I am literally growing enough on my thighs to build another person, I thought I should take another more serious crack at this resolution thing because this time there is room for improvement.
But I'll do it a tad differently.
Here's the deal: 2011-12 were not my best years. No. They were, in fact, my least favorite and if I wasn't trying to eliminate the negativity in my thinking I'd say they were complete crap.
Were I not trying to stay so stinking positive I'd also say I must be doing something wrong and I should probably focus on doing the exact opposite this year because how much worse could I possibly do?
As in, pull a George Costanza and do the reverse of everything I would normally do.
But I'm positive now, so my official statement is: hey, just for giggles why don't I try doing everything I wouldn't normally do to see if that brings health and happiness to me and the whole wide world!
Why not, this could be fun:
Opposite Day Resolutions for 2013
Don't be lazy.
If you don't want to get up to do something you probably should be up and doing it.
2012 Stacie felt swearing was crude and should be kept behind closed doors where only a certain husband could hear and know he was in big trouble. Not anymore. Bring that sh** out.
Green beans and tofu will never compare, so why fight it?
Tweet fake rumors about Angelina Jolie.
Because you're still not over the breakup of Brad and Jen. That was supposed to last forever Idon'twannatalkaboutit.
Stand up to foo's.
Tact, discretion: who needs 'em? If that lady in the 14 items or less line obviously has more than 14 items let her know her rudeness is unappreciated. Use swear words.
No make up.
Save time, save money. You already have a husband and he's not going anywhere.
Move to Florida.
The humidity is good for curls.
You don't want a professional office job anyway, plus the only time you really feel alive is when a cold piece of metal is shoved through your skin. No, no wait that's when you really feel like vomiting, so never mind.
Consume adult brownies.
McD's will come in handy here.
Take up plumbing.
Because students are not being encouraged to pick up a trade in school and are instead shoved into college programs that some simply cannot handle. I'm afraid there may be a real lack of plumbers in the next 10-15 years.
. . . .
That's my plan, I think it's a good start.
Here's to a ***** ***** *** ***** 2013, and Happy **** ******** New Year to you and yours!!
