11 Musical New Year's Resolutions For 2011

Craig's Hlist stopped making New Year's Eve resolutions the older and more stubborn we got. We normally don't quit or change things forever unless we are forced to do so. ('Sup, ladies?) This makes it hard for us to keep any New Year's Eve resolutions. If anything, it's easier to change organically along the way. This is the same reason heroin addicts have to be weaned off dope with methadone.

But that doesn't mean CHL doesn't have things we wants to change about ourselves. Temper, eating bad food, sleeping too much, not enough gym time, keeping in touch with old friends, these are all things that we want to remedy. We could be calmer, eat more veggies, skip the bar for the YMCA, and call our old friends on the way home from work at least once a week.

Will CHL do all that, though? Well, we will just have to see what 2011 has in store for us. Things are going to get pretty odd the first two months, we can tell you that much.
