Resolutions review
#1: The classic 'get fit and lose weight'. The goal here is the same as always: 244lb. Begun the year at 271, currently at 266 according to this morning's weighing. I have found that most upticks in weight happen the days I'm off work. In Progress -Positive.

#2: Visit my primary care doctor twice, my dentist at least twice. Still one of four.

#3: Scan every worthy piece of artwork in my assorted sketchbooks, mine and others, and get them posted. Finished off all the MFF art and my active sketchbooks! Doing good.

#4: Eliminate one, if not two, characters from my online repertoire. I still have too many. Nothing yet.

#5: Do things more resulting in long-term benefits, especially as regards friends and family, over quick and simple short-term things. Delayed gratification. Hard to measure, but some positives.

#6: Enter the hard phase of "Stuff-reduction". EBay off at least 50% of my Transformers collection. Reduce, through Ebay, gifts, or charitable donation, my comic book collection to 50% its current size. Eliminate video games I will never play, likely through charitable donation. Nothing yet.

#7: Save $500 a month. I have a new nicely interest-bearing account at HSBC currently at $1100. Doing good!

#8: Eliminate obstacles to my love life. I will be focusing on doing one or two things a month, every month, which will increase my availability, minimize my distraction, and hopefully make me a.. better relationship choice. January: Success. February: One success, one yet to do, one to be dealt with in the next post.

#9: Get Mom set for me to leave the house. This includes purchasing of a new computer for my use and setting her up with the former one, performing all necessary cleaning chores possible, tossing junk out of the basement and attic discreetly. etc. New computer will be in March. Little else done.

#10: Increase my career path by studying one book or magazine every month that is cooking-related, to make myself a better chef; or, seek out an alternate career and prepare one thing a month in study for that. January: Cook's Illustrated magazine, but I am only counting that once this year.

#11: Update my resume. 6 years since I've touched it, so much that needs to change. Nothing yet.

#12: Eat a snake. Planned for eapa's NYC visit in March.

Ess HISSES!

Shasa: "No, no, don't worry, it will be a bad snake."

Ess HISSES!

Kinsha: "You're not a bad snake Ess; It will be someone you don't like."

Ess... could be agreeable to that.

I didn't think Ess's travel plans would include NYC in march anyways.

*petpets Kinshasa's tail* Any snakes in particular, if I had to eat one, you want taken out Ess?
