So I think I muttered something about possible resolutions for this new year thing in my last post, ones that won't instantly turn to dust. Speaking of dust, I just watched The Golden Compass (not Gilden) and if you've seen the movie or read the book, you get the dust reference. If you haven't seen it, it was meh so I guess it really was Gilden.
Yes so it's New Year's Day, and so far my list of resolutions includes:
- floss daily
I can't help it, with this distraction and all. We got iTunes gift certificates and I'm rebuilding my 90s and early millennia with missing singles and CDs. The ones that were borrowed and never returned, lifted when throwing house parties, lost with the relationships - the ones thrown from car windows along with a lot of tears and swear words - and smokes. These are the ones that over the years have been unexpectedly heard again on the airwaves, usually prefaced with the word retro, and always made me say "I've got to get that one again" prior to drifting into a mind-blowing memory, rife with potential for tangents. Those are the best kind of trips down memory lane - the ones with soundtracks. Today it was The Charlatans and I'll leave it at that.
Anyhow, this brings me to a small request. On my list of things to do before oh-eight ended was a template cleanse which is nothing like a body detox but I'll use the silly analogy anyway. So when I slimmed down the sidebars and shoved them into a new pair of skinny jeans with lots of muffin top flowing in all unharnessed directions - a muffin top that I'm hiding with a cleverly draped t-shirt - I lost some stuff. One of those things was my blogroll.
So I have decided on another resolution for 2009, one too accompany the massaging of mah bloody gums, and one with potential for success: I will build a new blogroll and this post will serve as an open roll call. If I've never seen you before, I may debate the linkage but I'm nice so don't be scared of that disclaimer.
So basically: leave me your linkage, and I will more than likely provide some technorati love for 2009. But no commercial ventures please - just personal blogs. Discretion is up to me baby.
from the Hunter S. Thompson Motivational Poster collectionAnd I've decided to live my life according to Hunter S. Thompson: so free drugs to everyone who learns to really relax. Not sure who's supplying the drugs, and those drugs might be Motrin or Beano, but it's free drugs that are free but not drug-free, so stop complaining would ya'.
Oh and I found some floss last night so when it comes to keeping my resolution, I'm right on target. YEE HAW.
