Same Old New Year's Doings!

I failed.

Three things I try to do every single year, and I failed at all of them.

I try to get through the Halloween season WITHOUT hearing "Monster Mash" by Bobby "Boris" Pickett.

I failed. 

I try to get through the Christmas season WITHOUT hearing "Grandma Got Run Over By a Reindeer."

I failed!

And I try to make it through the end of December and into the New Year WITHOUT having anyone say "See you next year!" to me.

I failed!

Oh, well, at least there's one thing I know I won't do this year. Just like last year and all the years before it, I will NOT make a list of New Year's resolutions. (Unless you count my resolution not to make such a list, I suppose...)

So there you have it. My three big failures of 2012.

What, you were expecting some gut-wrenching, emotional confession? From me? From me?

That's pretty funny.

Thanks for your time.

    1. Well, yeah. As I said above, I try every year, regardless of my success rate in previous years. :)

    1. I thought it was cute the first few times I heard it. Then they started overplaying it...

  3. I join you in the no resolutions...and as for what I aim for over the holidays and my failings...well...that would take a book. I am looking forward to 2013...now that I've got my silver fix :) Happy New Year!!!

    1. No, no. It's not "Silver Fix," it's "Silver Fox!" (ducks)

  7. I never make New Year's Resolutions. What a terrible way to start a new year. :)

    1. Right. I figure that if there's something about myself that I want to change, why wait until January 1st to change it? What if it occurs to me on February 9th? :)
