Welcome to 2009. It’s a lot like 2008 except the new car smell hasn’t yet dissipated enough to reveal the stench of personal crisis and financial angst underneath. That usually comes sometime towards the end of the first quarter. Before then, I’m capitalizing on my hopes and wishes by committing to a small handful of resolutions, including: finishing The Knack re-write, thereby raising the quality of my back catalog to tolerable levels; lowering my cheese intake (I know that sounds funny, but I’m friggin’ serious); getting Heroes’ Day off my hard drive and into readers’ hands. Or maybe I’ll learn to play the bass. I’ve always wanted to do that.
Best of all, though, I’m finally getting rid of that stupid Stewie Griffin calendar hanging on my wall:
How about you? Any resolutions / plans / obligations this year?
