Happy New Year

A couple of New Year’s resolutions:

  1. I should probably take down this 2007 calender and get a 2008 one.
  2. Are we supposed to set the clocks forward or back? Oh, that’s spring and fall. Nevermind. Just the calender thing, then.

    2007? Hmm…. I think I’ve got a 2005 calendar up somewhere still.

  3. Binks says:

    Calendar? You mean that thing in my task tray right? The one that tells me the time and date…

  4. heather says:

    Don’t bother, somebody forgot to buy new calendars for this year–maybe we will just skip it.

  5. Don Monkey says:

    I’m with Gebiv here, except that I KNOW that I have a 2006 calendar up in my Study right now.

    As Homer Simpson once said, “Sure, it’s not 2006 right NOW, but who KNOWS what the future may bring?”

    New Calender? Pfft, this means the one still hanging from 1980 is good again. Woohoo!

    My 2001 calender will forever hang on my wall, I don’t care how dated it gets.

    Happy new year!

    I don’t use calenders.

  13. Davesnot says:

    I’m not in to time, man.

  14. Joe says:

    I’ve got a little “todo list” whiteboard with a month calendar grid on it… I can say with some certainty that it stopped being useful sometime before the last time Jan 1 was on a Sunday.

    365 days of Irish Banter and Profane Words was on my desk last week. Others around me have paged through the first few weeks. Nothing is sacred any more.

    steve….dude… is your wavatar… a samurai penguin?

  17. You set the clock forward in the spring, you move it left in the summer, you set it back in the autumn, and you move it right in the winter.

    Everyone knows that!

    I resolved to keep on top of the mail this year (snail-mail, that is). I must intend to keep it, since I gave my wife full nagging rights over unopened and unsorted mail.


  19. Crusader Corim says:

    I resolve not to make any New Year’s Resolutions.

    I mean…

    Ah well, another year, another failure.

  20. malfunction84 says:

    My digital watch blinked out months ago, but I waited until today to replace the battery. This way, I don’t have to set the date.

  21. Steve says:


    well.. it’s a penguin with a sword.

    In some circles i am known as deathblade_penguin

    (dont ask)

  22. Kajen says:

    Well, just dropping by to wish the obligatory happy new year to y’all.

    All of my resolutions have to do with spending less on toys, never using a credit card ever again (haven’t used one since Oct), paying credit cards off, canceling them all and never getting another one, and cleaning and organizing my existing toy collection.

  24. Shamus says:

    ryanlb: Credit cards are cruel things. Good luck with your resolution!
