2012 is winding down, my friends, so it's time to start brainstorming all the resolutions we're going to commit to, post proudly on Facebook, and then quietly renege on by Valentines'. To not do so would be positively UNAMERICAN, so let's get started!
Just remember: The ol' "better diet and more exercise" routine is BO-RING. Nobody cares if you ever fit into your college jeans again, mkay? So why not give us something with a little more zip? A little more pizazz? A little more "yahoo and how?"
You know, like:
- Better bowel habits.
Or drinking less booze. Really, this cake works for both.
- Become a vegetarian
That's always a hip, happening kind of choice - unlike using the words "hip" and/or "happening." And if you need a little incentive:
Thaaaat oughta do it.
(The baker sent this to me herself, btw, so don't think I'm being mean by leaving that watermark on. And yes, it's SUPPOSED to be bloody fried chicken. So speaking as someone who really likes fried chicken, I'd like to wish a pox on the house of Jen's Just Desserts - while fully realizing the overwhelming irony of the name.)
For a more intellectual New Year's goal, how about:
- Go to college
Clown college totally counts. Plus it's perfect for anyone who hates children*!
Here's one we can all aspire to:
- Be more supportive of friends and loved ones:
Or, finally, in 2013:
- Don't be afraid to admit when you've made a mistake.
After all, there's no shame in admitting when you're wrong.
There are, however, certain website audiences which will get a real kick out of it.
Thanks to Anony M., Jen R., Diana, Michelle B., & Sarah G. for the suggestions. Personally, I think I'm going with "play more video games" and "leave the house more." You, uh, don't suppose those two will interfere with each other, do you? o.0
*I say this as a former clown who does, in fact, have a strong dislike of children. (Hey, don't judge 'til you've seen a roving pack of unsupervised children descend upon a single clown bearing a bag of candy, ok? They're animals. ANIMALS, I tell you!)
