New Year’s Resolution
New Year’s resolutions are stupid. Let me get that out of the way right away. I don’t like them, I almost never make them, and when I have I’ve failed miserably. Okay, so maybe I’m avoiding the chance of failure by not making New Year’s resolutions. What are you, my shrink?
Well, I’ve made one. I’m going to post to this thing at least once a week. Not only do I really need to get back to writing (instead of playing Runescape all day), but now maybe people will actually know what’s going on in my life for a change.
Not that anyone cares what’s going on in my life other than the handful of people I’m going to give this address to. If you have managed to stumble onto this site blind, I have to wonder what you’re doing here. Maybe like Michael Moore you think that Librarians are going to take over the world and want an inside track on the state of the revolution (it’s going slowly, sorry). Or maybe you’re just bored and looking for Charles Manson or Son of Sam trivia and mis-spelled “psycho.”
But after all, Time magazine said that I was person of the year for 2006 because of all my online activities. Maybe I’d better start living up to the title and get busy contributing to the flood of useless information that no one seems to be able to figure out how to organize other than Google. (Now there’s where the revolution is coming from. Or maybe a coup d’etat? “The Microsoft is dead, long live the Google!” as Won’t get fooled again plays in the background.)
I suppose I could take that tangent even further and go off about how someone needs figure out how to organize all this stuff without letting one entity control it all, and hello! the librarians are sitting here waiting! But I’ll wait for some time when a news story more recent than Time’s person of the year comes along and gets me worked up again. Betcha can’t wait, huh? Ah well. At least I enjoy the sound of my own voice.
In the meantime, the insanity that is the holidays has settled down and we’re back to some semblance of normalcy, albeit with a tree shedding needles in the middle of our living room. So it’s time to try something new. Let’s see where this leads to, hmm?
