New Year's Resolutions

  • Get some culture
  • Stop eating unhealthy food through hunger – fill myself up with healthy stuff before I get that kebab on the way home from the pub
  • Publish a paper
  • Go to a conference in an exotic location (Surrey doesn’t count)
  • Blog once a week
  • Appear as an extra in a movie
  • Play the piano twice a week including an hour’s ‘proper music’
  • Write a song
  • Give up ketchup
  • Become bold and impetuous
  • Diversify my friendship groups, make a new friend who doesn’t know any of my old ones.
  • Gain an Adonis like physique (Ira’s friend Mark suggested I should aim for someone not as attractive as Adonis but more attractive than me, but we were unable to think of anyone in this gap)
  • Average a book a fortnight for 2009
  • Climb outdoors
  • Cook a fish
  • Go to an opera
  • Cook something I’ve killed myself
  • Reach 1000 wins without loss on freecell
  • And then give up freecell
  • Be in a country during a revolution
  • Develop a stash of witty party annecdotes
  • Read all the cards for Articulate and Wikipedia all the entries I don’t know
  • Program something
  • Write a letter of complaint
  • Have a near death experience
  • Give up Radio 4 in the mornings
  • Shave every other day
  • Volunteer for something
  • Claim my tax back
  • Learn a card trick
[late addition]
  • Get a protégé

Hmmm that’ll have to do for now, unless anyone has any suggestions?
