Need more New Year's resolutions?

Thought so. I'm here to help. Also, to offer somewhat inedible meringues.

I resolve to:

Save the good towels for guests
Save my pride
Save face
Save a horse, ride a cowboy

Buy short
Buy long
Buy a loom and learn to weave
Buy a boat and learn to sail
Buy fancy stationary and revive the art of letter-writing
Buy a hermit crab
Buy a clue (here's a quarter)

Drink only the finest Scotch
Drink only diet soda
Drink deeply from life's rich bouquet
Drink deeply from life's rich tapestry
Drink deeply from a garden hose
Buy a garden hose
Replace the word "drink" with "quaff" and don a cravat

Cancel porn and just watch Mad Men
Cancel both cable and internet connection and watch informercials

Name a goldfish Henry
Name your goldfish crackers and then freak out when people eat them

Alison, facking brilliant little post here. Love the slow flow and the word play.

Thanks for the good laughs and something to read out loud after stuffing and turkey ;)

Throw the leaves from my neighbors property back to them.

Have a user name that spells the name of a band followed by the word SUck and make a comment for any of that rock band's videos with a compliment of how good that band is. (See what other people will say about that...)

Everytime I'm in a shopping aisle, there's always someone who comes down with a grocery cart expecting me to move out of the way. Next time, I'm not moving out of the way.

Join a culinary arts program in the local community college.

Think of MMA grappling as a significant way for guys to show their love and hatred to each other at the same time.

Convince local officials to make a three-way restroom system. One is for ladies, the other for gentlemen, and the third restroom for Pat O'Neil Riley (Memorable Character from SNL)
