Resolutions, Schmesolutions


In the spirit of the new year, I’m sharing the words of one of my favorite musicians, Jamie Cullum. For what it’s worth, my resolutions are to get 8 hours of sleep a night (although I’ve yet to do that in 2008), try out for a play, talk to my niece at least once a week, and buy some clothes (I have an anti-shopping problem). And now…here’s Jamie.

Next Year,
Things are gonna change,
Gonna drink less beer
And start all over again
Gonna pull up my socks
Gonna clean my shower
Not gonna live by the clock
But get up at a decent hour
Gonna read more books
Gonna keep up with the news
Gonna learn how to cook
And spend less money on shoes
Pay my bills on time
File my mail away, everyday
Only drink the finest wine
And call my Gran every Sunday
Well Baby they come and go
Will I do any of these things?
The answer’s probably no
But if there’s one thing, I must do,
Despite my greatest fears
I’m gonna say to you
How I’ve felt all of these years
Next Year

Happy 2008, Hippos!

    al — you need to add: “jog every morning with pam anderson” to your list. i mean, that’s just a suggestion…

    What is it with men and Pamela Anderson? Oh, wait. I think I know.

    Al – Congrats on crossing off #’s 16-19 on your Before Death List! I went through a phase about a year ago where I started taking a picture a day. I don’t do the “every day” thing anymore, but I always have a camera with me.

    My picture from today is on my personal blog (, and it’s of my daughter with her new contact lenses. I’ve also updated my law school search process there in case anyone is interested.
