So Much for *that* New Year's Resolution....

I try not to make New Year's resolutions, simply because I am lazy, and it seems too much like setting myself up for certain failure. But, against my better judgement, I actually (privately) made some resolutions that I was going to try my hardest to make come to fruition.

Number one was: Try to get more exercise.

Two was: Try to eat healthier.

Three was: Weed out 99/100's of the cursing in my vocabulary.

It comes as no surprise to anyone who knows me fairly well that number three has already bit the el big-o wiener-o. The reason for polluting my airspace with harsh invective? Scads and scads of the Secret Santa bunch have not only *gotten* their gifts, but got to open them as well! I'm still gift-less. (Mumble, grumble....@#$#%#......)

I guess I'll have to go and break resolution number two and eat some chocolate to console myself....

That is a resolution that I could not possibly keep. I think you are correct in thinking that we were separated at birth.

Sorry that your gift has not arrived yet.

i'm soooo sorry you haven't gotten your parcel yet. i'm your secret spoiler person...i did send it in what i thought was plenty of time. i just called the post office to see what's going on and they tell me you should have it tomorrow. if you don't get it tomorrow, post here or email me (secretsanta_shhhhh@hotmail.com) and let me know and i'll call and yell at them some more. okay?

Secret Santa -- there was a message when I got home today that I can go pick up my package at the post office! YAY! I plan to go on my lunch hour tomorrow to go and get it! I'm so excited that I can barely wait!

I'm quite sure that you mailed it in plenty of time, but living here in the boondocks means that it takes everything a jillion years to get here. The post office here is severely messed up. I once had a letter that I was mailing across TOWN have to go to a central hub in Jacksonville, Florida -- a completely different state from me! Like I said, crazy-messed up.

Thank you1 I can't wait to get my package tomorrow!

I am glad your Secret Santa is making sure you get your gift. May it make you grin.

Not that chocolate is a bad thing. I hope you consume it under happier conditions soon :)

Fo shizzle ;)
