With great resolve


Create a language that uses the 14 letters not used in the Hawai’ian language.

Master the gamelan.

Learn to love the Asian carp.

Invest in an independent coffeehouse, since it is well known what a lucrative retirement investment option such a thing is.

Work with my inner child so that he finally stops kicking the back of my chair.

Lose weight, specifically the ten pounds YOU have to lose.

Change my name to Metta World P… what? DAMMIT! Scratch that one.

Invent at least one word or phrase that ends up on the 2013 List of Words Banished from the Queen’s English for Misuse, Overuse and General Uselessness.

Continue to work toward world peace. And, when that fails, as it inevitably will, implement my plan for world domination. Involving independent coffee, of course.


About songdogmi

I'm a longhaired almost-hippie stuck in the inner suburbs of a major rust-belt metropolis who's thoughtful, creative, and kind of geeky. In exchange for a paycheck I run around in a cubicle maze most days. When I escape, I play music, hang out in coffee houses, dink around on the computer, take naps, and think I should be off in the woods somewhere. Every once in a while I get in my car and drive far, far away, though I've always come back so far.

    For the most part, the folks who needed to win did – and the folks who needed to be tossed out (Akin, the mayor of Troy, etc.) were. I would liked to have seen Prop. 2 (collective bargaining) pass, but I freely admit bias as a 28-year union member. And I was elated to hear that our own resident arrogant bastard billionaire slumlord, Matty Maroun, got his nether regions handed to him with the smackdown of Prop. 6. I sincerely hope the 30 million he spent on his advertising deprives him of his next few changes of underwear.

    But the only change I really expect to see will be that of a few faces here and there. The rest will be business as usual. I just feel relieved that the country wasn’t QUITE as insane as I had feared during the early returns.

    If your guys go home and leave the Afghans to fight it out amongst themselves, can the EU troops go home, too? Because that would be grand.
