After a raucous New Year's Eve spent watching Pride and Prejudice and eating Thai food on Capitol Hill, it is time to turn to the more serious task of examining one's goals for the year. Here goes:
Reclaim other half of the apartment
Use ultra-sharp new knives to debone the shit out of a chicken carcass -- and make homemade broth!
Watch DVDs given as presents for Christmases 2001-5
When asking someone "How are you," actually stop to hear the answer
Bust out the roller skates
Take a morning off to see the baby panda
Dust off the passport, and actually use it
Learn how to flirt
Eat more cheese
Fairly attainable, I think. Happy new year!
