Something New For New Years

Here we are again.

It’s that time of the year when Baby New Year is slapped on his bottom by Dr. Dick Clark and nurse Ryan Seacrest and is welcomed into the world by thousands of people in Time Square, along with millions watching in there homes. It makes you think about making that New Year’s resolution yet again.

So, you might be wondering what my resolution is this year. OK, I’ll tell you. My New Years resolution this year has two parts to it. Doesn’t it sound so top secret that way?

Part one is to keep on eating healthy and to exercise, blah, blah you know the drill; but part two is different and new. I will be trying something new every month, something I’ve never done before or have been afraid to try.

It’s a resolution that I can keep along with part one. To tell you the truth, it’s one that I can keep without really trying. It’s only 12 new things. Maybe I might take a cooking class in February or try water skiing for the month of August, or curl up and read the complete works on Jane Austen in November.

Sure, some months will be more exciting than others and I might even share a few of them with you. See, this year’s resolution is already working for me: awesome column ideas. Nothing illegal mind you. I already know that the color orange is not a good color on me.

How did I come up with this wonderful-awesome-column-making New Years resolution, you ask?

Simply, I ripped it off. Oh, I mean I borrowed it from my aunt Doreen. It was her New Years resolution that she had this past year. She did some fun things and had a blast doing them. Like one month she entered herself in a hairy leg contest.

OK, I wouldn’t be able to do that one. A two day growth is about as much as I can take. After that, it’s time to shave the legs.

You might be wondering what my January challenge will be. I will be dying my hair blonde. I have never really dyed my hair any other color than what my natural hair color is.

When I was a kid, my hair was very blonde, very close to looking like a “Village of the Damned” child. But as I got older, it turned to what it is today.

I’m not going “Village of the Damned” blonde, but it will be in the blonde family. Jason doesn’t believe that my hair was ever blonde, even though there are pictures to prove it. So to prove to Jason that I can get out of my comfort zone and change my hair color, it also gets my January challenge out of the way. A win-win scenario. This girl will be a blonde of a little while anyway.

Please no blonde jokes. I’ve heard them all anyway.

If you have any ideas of stuff that I could do, drop me an e-mail.
