I’ve Got Your List Right Here

First of all, I don’t make New Year’s Resolutions.  I need immediate gratification.  I pretty much make resolutions every hour, and I give myself a gold star if I accomplish at least one of them.

Secondly, even if I did make New Year’s Resolutions, I think it would be presumptuous of me to assume that you would be the slightest bit interested in what I feel like I need to improve.

Therefore, I’ve decided this post will be about what I feel like you need to improve.  These are my Resolutions for the World:

  1. For every reality show you watch, you must exercise thirty minutes a day.  If it’s Toddlers and Tiaras, you must run naked around an entire public park with a tiara on your head.
  2. If you participate in a reality show in any way, shape, or form (whether it be the production, the music, or even provide a single prop), you must donate a dollar to charity for every misconception you allow to appear on T.V. uncorrected.  Unless you are a Kardashian.  You ladies have to donate a hundred dollars per transgression.
  3. If you are an adult who participates in Toddlers and Tiaras, you must donate yourself to the local zoo as an attraction to be ogled for at least a month.
  4. You must read my blog at least once a day, or several times a day from different computers.
  5. Spay or neuter your cats and dogs so I don’t have to cry every time I hear Sarah McLachlan’s song from the ASPCA commercial.
  7. Stop voting for politicians for stupid reasons, like “they have good hair” or “they like chicken-fried steak.”  But don’t vote for Donald Trump if he decides to run.  No one with that hair can ever be taken seriously at World Summits.
  8. Laugh at least three times a day.
  9. Do something stupid at least once a day so other people can laugh.  (If you need help, my sister, Crash, and I can give you pointers on this one.)
  10. Cure cancer.

I think that about covers it.  I was going to give you a handy little checklist so you could keep track of your goals, but I don’t want to spoil you.  Just print this out and stick it on your fridge.  And, if my list seems a little too ambitious for you, just focus on the important parts, like #4 and #10, for this year.  You can always build on your success in 2013.

  1. Great list 🙂 I’ve already gotten a head start on many of these… 🙂

  2. I see more Toddlers with Tantrums than Toddlers with Tiaras on that show. It’s the Train Wreck that keeps on wreckin’. They act more like Cinder-Smella than Cinderella.

    And FYI- I read your blog from 2 different computers, every day- do I win something for that?

  3. If I want to just run naked through a park with a tiara on my head anyway, do I need to watch Toddlers and Tiaras first?
    Because I’d really rather not.
    And #8 for today was nicely taken care of by this post.

    • Since you were sweet enough to give me a compliment, I absolve you from any Toddler and Tiara watching. Just give me the time and date of the naked park running and you can check that off on your resolution list.

  4. I like #5 too. I bawl my eyes out at those commercials!

    • Those commercials are so rotten because they pretty much effect the people who don’t need to be effected. If you have a heart, you wouldn’t abandon or abuse an animal in the first place!

  5. I can’t listen to Sarah McLachlan because of those commercials.

  6. Those commercials should be banned ! R u giving away prizes

  7. I have never seen the commercial. And does it count if I already regularly do #1 for every single episode of Toddlers?

  8. Could you buy me some extra computers so I can complete #4? I have to share this one with my person.

    I also want to thank you for showing up as one of my Top 5 supporters on my annual stats. And I’m so glad I found your blog. It makes me laugh every day.

  9. And the funny thing is that I do exercise 30 minutes per day AND I routinely run around naked wearing a tiara. So there.

  10. I shouldn’t have read #5. And I definitely shouldn’t have searched for it on YouTube.

  11. I have read your great post . but like you I do not make resolutions. If I did I would be prepared to follow everyone of them …but one thing I will do because i always do it anyway.
    Is to read your blog everyday

  12. So glad I don’t watch reality TV.

  13. Ha! Love your list. As for #5…99% of the TV I watch is on streaming, but I slipped and watched broadcast TV over the holidays. (What penance must I pay for getting sucked into Bravo marathons like Tabatha Takes Over?) I saw the ASPCA ad about 400 times in one afternoon. My son is now 100% aware of its effect on me and warned me that “that ad” was on “his” channel too. Back to streaming to save my tear ducts!

  14. Best list ever! Love the picture, too. I almost never watch TV, so I don’t recognize any of your reality-show references, but the thought of watching anything titled “Toddlers and Tiaras” makes me want to chew my own wrists open. So I think I’ve got 1, 2, and 3 covered. Lucky thing. It’s a little too nippy for nudity at this time of year. 🙂

    Happy New Year!

  15. Um, I would like to point out that I occasionally watch Toddlers and Tiaras because it makes me feel like a balanced human being with good priorities. It’s winter here in Alberta, and running through a park naked, tiara or not, is akin to a suicide mission.

    Can I at least wear snow boots?

  16. writingandrecovering

    Love it. And the doctor thing, SERIOUSLY. I once waited an entire hour after my appointment. I’m busy, too.

  17. Hahahahaha! I’ve ticked off #4 🙂

  18. I got #10 covered.

  19. Thank goodness! Uh, can you give me an estimated date of completion on that one?

  20. Great List! I will start working on that cure for cancer right away….

  21. Great list! I don’t make them either, but I think we should follow your resolutions. I completely agree with all of them, especially the reality shows and Toddlers and Tiaras!!!

  22. #8 and #9 are now on my list…thanks for reminding me that these should be part of my every day life!
