New Year’s Resolutions

January 3, 2011

Now that I’ve  sobered up, I think it’s time for me to assess the things I’d like to achieve during this glorious New Year.

It’s not a lot, only a small list really, but it’s all about quality, not quantity…  Right?


1. Marry Hugh Jackman

You had to know this would be number one on my list.


2. Start Smoking Again

I keep saying I am going to do this, but I never quite get around to it.


3. Eat More Chocolate Cake

I don’t know if this is possible, but I am going to give it my best effort.


4. Write More Books

Very important.


5. Get Up Off My Lazy Ass And WorkOut

(with him)

I’m not really looking forward to this one, but I need to be camera ready for the RWA 2011 CONFERENCE!


What are your New Year’s Resolutions?

    HA! Great list!

    My list is short as well…..1) Keeping my fingers crossed that I’m invited to your wedding when you and Hugh get married.

    2) Find a workout buddy that looks as good as yours

    3) Write more

      Here’s to a truly fantastic 2011!!

    I’ve spent the evening traveling from blog to blog, reading the same group of lame resolutions from folks – until I saw yours – they’re realistic, and quite bitchin’, if you ask me. ESPECIALLY the one about starting smoking again – just promise me you won’t fail, and spend another miserable year as a boring non-smoker!!! I’d like to believe I was sent here to bring you back to the dark side, and you can rely on me to do just that.

    By way of introduction: My friends say I’m a chain-smoking, semi-drunken ex go-go dancer from the ’60s – and I guess that sums it up nicely. My enemies probably say something less flattering, but it doesn’t matter, ’cause they’re mostly dead. But I’m also a celebrity – and as a celebrity, I set my own rules concerning where and when I smoke. Wherever I light up automatically becomes the smoking section. I ALWAYS smoke on airline flights, and rarely have a problem with it. A fistful of dollars handed to the flight attendant usually takes care of things at the beginning of the flight, and I give the stink-eye to passengers who have a problem with me, and if that doesn’t work, a few screamed obscenities usually does the trick. If all else fails, I’ll head to the lavatory – you ever seen what a stiletto heel does to a smoke detector?

    Of course I’ve heard the claims about the adverse effects of smoking – that’s why I had an ashtray installed on my exercise bike – right next to the cupholder for my scotch.

    Let’s face it, smokers are much more interesting and attractive people than non-smokers. How many times have we been trapped in a room with non-smokers? Do I have to remind you what that’s like? Don’t get me wrong – getting into a knife fight with a rabid “anti” isn’t necessarily the best approach, but speaking from personal experience, it IS a bit of an adrenaline rush.
    I think I’m a good example of the positive benefits of smoking… if I didn’t smoke, do you think I would have had my own television specials, guest-starred on numerous TV shows, and starred in several motion pictures? And what about all the stars I’ve slept with? Could I have done that if I were a non-smoker? Of course not. Just ask the game-show host who told me I couldn’t smoke during the show – I put my cigarette out in his eye, and walked off the set. Of course, I would never do things like this out of meanness – I’m simply a strong, assertive female, a worthy role model to all you kids out there. And, I suppose some of it does stem from meanness now that I think about it… But as a woman, and as a smoker, I have the power – it would be wrong not to use it.

    And one last point – I’m not looking for any payments from “Big Tobacco” because I smoke – truth be told, I may owe them a few bucks, since I occasionally shoplift a couple packs here and there – you know how it is…

    Your friend,


    PS – And please, if you have nothing better to do, stop over at my blog. It’s guaranteed to cheer you up, especially since I’m always half-crocked when I write it.

      Roxy, you are awesome. I am totally inspired. I’m going to buy a pack right now. Thank you. You are a role model to me as well.

        You are very very kind to say that! And your first pack will be my treat – I got an extra pack for you while the clerk at the Circle K was looking elsewhere…

        —A big dose of ’60s love from Roxy!

        PS – I was wondering if I could have your permission to put a link to your blog in my blogroll? I have wonderful readers that would appreciate it. Most of them have weekly computer privileges (at least the minimum-security ones).

      • January 4, 2011 3:19 pm

        Thank you! And I am both flattered and honored that you would link to me. I would love to be on your blogroll.

        I also think that my readers would benefit from your wisdom and from your example so I have added you to my blogroll. I believe that everyone could use some 1960’s sensibility in their lives.

    I’ll just adopt all of those and pretend they’re mind. (Easier to break that way!)

    • January 4, 2011 9:50 am

      You can have them all except the Hugh Jackman one. He’s mine.

    I love your list, and I would steal it. Only trouble is I’m happily married, I can’t eat chocolate and smoking, well..cough..cough…can’t do that either….cough. Besides that, it’s stolen.

    • January 4, 2011 2:05 pm

      You are welcome to them. Except for Hugh. Who you didn’t want anyway. So it’s all good.

      Thanks for stopping by Leanne!

    Nice list…I know you will look hot for RWA. Wish I was going with ya….

    • January 5, 2011 8:53 am

      Oh are you not going? That’s too bad. We’ll have to hang out at another conference then!
