  1. Eagle-Eyed Editor Says:

    A worthy list! I’m starting mine soon (now where did I put that notepad?).


  2. Michael Says:

    I’m puzzled over the Eye Pads myself.


  3. on thehomefrontandbeyond Says:

    ha ha ha – I am going to make so many resolutions for 2013 that I will just have to fulfill some of them–I think I may start with buying my own toothbrush – thanks for this hit of comedy


  4. Tori Nelson Says:

    My too-skinny sister is making a resolution to QUIT the YMCA. I’m trying my hardest to make a resolution not to hate her.


  5. mistyslaws Says:

    Owning is highly overrated. Sharing is caring, I say. Might want to make a note to add to your 2014 list: Take daily antibiotics. You’ll thank me later.


  6. 1pointperspective Says:

    #28. Stop and smell the roses
    #29. Remember to plant roses


    • The Byronic Man Says:

      I have a rose-smelling app that lets me smell the roses without ever having to slow down, much less stop. It’s just as life-affrming without any wasted minutes! I’ve also got the “sitting here watching the world go round and round” app. By using them both, I can multi-task my leisure.


  7. renée a. schuls-jacobson Says:

    Wanna jump off the fiscal cliff with me? We can hold hands. 😉


    • The Byronic Man Says:

      I had to stop paying attention to that whole thing – I know it’s a big deal, but there’s so much media hoop-jumping and political air-bagging that I had to stop. Just say when to jump and I’m ready.


      • renée a. schuls-jacobson Says:

        Actually, truth be old, I thought we had already fallen off the cliff. Seriously, how can we have so much debt and even be hanging on to that branch that is sticking out of the cliff. I think it snapped a long time ago. This is all phoney-baloney.


  8. speaker7 Says:

    I think 4, 5 and 6 are especially doable. If I could suggest an addition? Solve all problems.


  9. pegoleg Says:

    5 and 6 might be in conflict.


    • The Byronic Man Says:

      I realized after I left town that it’s kinda sorta stolen from a joke from the 1984 movie Fletch. Someone asks Chevy Chase if he owns rubber gloves and he replies, “I lease, actually, with an option to buy.”

      Do you think I might be overly-concerned about joke-theft?


  10. Ms. PC Says:

    Those smokers have it so easy when it comes to resolutions.


  11. My Inner Chick Says:

    Great list.

    I am finding number 4 quite impossible! X


  12. Life in the Boomer Lane Says:

    Great list. I’ve always had #6 nailed. This year I will add “Be humble about it.”


  13. becca3416 Says:

    Number 4 seems pretty much doable.
    Numbers 8 and 11 – gold.


  14. Angie Z. Says:

    Fantastic list! I have never made a New Year’s resolution. It’d probably end up like my job review goals I have to make every year….which I make and then forget about until my next job review in October.


  15. pithypants Says:

    #15 Floss at least one tooth per day.


  16. Elyse Says:

    13 goals, Bryonic? 13? Doesn’t that mean that the world will end when you keep the 13th?



    • The Byronic Man Says:

      Theres actually 2,013 of them. I like to make one resolution for every year. It’s a daunting task, but thank God I’m not Chinese!

      (Because it’s, like, 4709 or something in the Chinese calendar. Not because I have anything against the Chinese. Just to clarify.)


  17. Laura Says:

    I kind of like the idea of a Goofball Apocalypse. Someone should make a prediction about it, or maybe a musical.


  18. She's a Maineiac Says:

    Number FOUR! yes! I will never get there–but I have hope. I fpeople would just stop blogging for two damn seconds.

    Oh, and number 6. But I’m thinking it would be even better if I could have someone else do everything better for me.


  19. scarletloser Says:

    I have #10 on my eye pod.


  20. winopants Says:

    Brilliant, I’m so going to start smoking on the 31st with the intention of quitting the next day. The glow of accomplishment will be mine


  21. The Bumble Files Says:

    Excellent list. I’m going to steal #4-6 if that’s ok. And, good luck with this. We can all feel like failures on Jan 2nd together.


  22. List of X Says:

    The best New Year’s resolution is to not make any New Year’s resolutions. But it’s one of the hardest goals to achieve.


  23. becomingcliche Says:

    Thanks for #10. Now that song is stuck in my head, along with the shameful knowledge that I bought that 45 as a kid.


  24. Lori Lipsky Says:

    Good luck with the whole Eye Pod thing. You’re gonna love it!


  25. benzeknees Says:

    I had lots of eye pads as a child (5 eye operations in 5 years) – not the kind of eye pad thing you were looking for?


  26. stephrogers Says:

    I’m going to borrow numbers 2, 9 and 10. I am also planning on buying a new pen and using it all the way to the end. I have never done that before. It will be huge achievement.


  27. Maria Says:

    #3 is priceless – made me spit my drink, thankfully it was water.


  28. Valentine Logar Says:

    A resolution I can actually attempt and perhaps fulfill!

    Learn in-laws names.


  29. MissQ Says:

    I’ve been forgetting to buy a new toothbrush for like three months.
    Every time I use my toothbrush, I’m all “Ew! Today is the day!”
    But it’s not! *sob


    • The Byronic Man Says:

      And you never think there’s that big of a difference until you get the new one, and suddenly the old one seems like an overcooked piece of asparagus you’ve been trying to clean your teeth with.
