    Who makes New Year resolutions??

    Who makes resolutions on the first day of a New Year, and can you keep all of them for longer than a month?
    I've tried but have never succeeded.

    Of course I don't, you can't improve on perfection.

    I find them easy to keep. The trick is to resolve to keep doing things just like you already are.

    I wonder came up with this idea for New Year Resolutions. Probably some politician - feels like an unfunded mandate to me.

    I make them, and they generally last till I sober up.

    My news years resolution is not to make a new years resolution. Problem solved.

    In 2000 I made a new year's resolution to stop making new year's resolutions. So far, so good.

    Except that one year I said I would never mix beer with Schnapps again, and I've stuck to it since!

    Ya know OFK, I made that same resolution about 5 or six years ago... Except mine was that I resolved to never make another New Years Resolution.

    I do, but I try to keep them sensible.

    Some of my past ones:

    Always buckle up....even for the short trips.

    Never cuss in front of my son.

    Never trash my Ex in front of my son, or too my son.

    Be a good friend.

    Those are all good... I may be forced to adopt a couple of them before too long...

    I made a New Year's resolution to break all my New Year's resolutions. I'm still caught in the time-space continuum anomaly created by that paradox.
