Obligatory New Years Post [Jan. 1st, 2004|02:07 pm]
[Current Mood |post-yule]

Our planet has, once again, spun past our chosen line of solar demarcation. It seems like this year went by quickly and, indeed, it did. So a happy new year to everyone and good wishes to everyone.

So, what about resolutions? I didn't actually finish last year's resolution to cook with 26 new ingredients during 2003. I did get halfway there and found some interesting new recipes in the process.

Sure, there are good reasons why I didn't finish it. There was an extended period of unemployment which ruled out a number of pricier ingredients. I was also busy writing a book which I hadn't planned on last January. But all of these are, really, still excuses.

So the new resolution? Honestly, I don't think I should make a new resolution since I didn't finish my last one. So this year I'll attempt to finish up the remaining 13 ingredients (one per four weeks). Or write another book. Just no repeat of the unemployment thing, please.

I think my resolution will be to quit smoking, since I don't smoke it should be fairly easy.

And darnit, -every- time I hear you talk about the resolution, I hear the dubbed Iron Chef 'dish intro' music.


Resolution failed: Get story published in kid's magazine.
Runner up succeeded: Complete Nanowrimo.
Runner up succeeded: Do more work with the Tai-Pan folks. (Will have a story published November 2004; have artwork published Nov 2003.)

Number of 'always wanted to do's' checked off list: two. (the other one: rock climbing wall. :) )
