I've Decided On Two New Year's Resolutions....


So as to not complicate my life any further I've locked down on two and only two, New Year's Resolutions. I'm fairly certain these two resolutions are two that I can keep.


#1) I am going to try to cuss less. Yes, it's true. I've been referred to as a *potty mouth* more times than I care to confess, so I thought this should be the year I clean up my act. I have no doubts that Lenny Bruce is now twirling in his grave upon hearing about my quest to quell the cussing. Sorry Lenny, I've always been a fan. However, the mainstream world still doesn't quite seem ready to make cusswords part of the mainstream. However, in honor of Lenny I will from time to time post a funny cartoon or two. I came across a Blog Cuss-O-Meter which claims my blog has a high (44%) cuss level, which I thought was interesting, since I haven't cussed (much) for the entire month of December. I've also gained more new followers during December, so that does tell me something.

#2) I'm going to work on my memory (especially the short term, which also requires some amount of actual physical exertion). I've begun walking every day even though today was the first day. Playing golf two or three times a week doesn't seem to be cutting it any more. I'm also dedicated to spending one half hour every day playing games online that exercise your mind. It's also possible that this could cut into some time spent blogging, but I'll have to learn to manage my time better. Some might think this is just another addiction, but it's not. I can rationalize with the best of them.


Next, I found a blog rating meter that is apparently based on how many times the words dead, death, shoot and torture are used. It was mildly amusing, at best. They gave me an *R* Rating. It's interesting (or not) how I don't even recall using those words.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


I'm also going to end my cooking blog, as it has been too time consuming to keep up with both blogs and still be able to comment on all the other blogs I enjoy frequenting. Apparently, there are others of that same belief. Although it isn't actually an official resolution, it will soon be a done deal.


I'll still be posting a recipe on this blog from time to time, so stay tuned for more. Good recipes come in quite handy when new ideas for what to blog about, don't.

I've tried to scale back on my cussing too, although I can't tell you how many times I've had to backspace over a well-deserved F*word placement.

Not sure if you've heard of pogo.com - I enjoy that site. When I first joined, I spent too much time playing games on it. Now I hop on every day to do the daily trivia game - but probably only spend an hour or two a week playing other games. Lots of word games, card games and brain puzzles. Gotta keep the ol' noggin' tack as a sharp. See?

Yup... I have played at Pogo forever! Until I discovered Poker Stars, lol. Now, I'm all over the place.

I post about whatever I want whenever I want...a little about food, a little about fabric, a lotta about what amuzes me. Primadonna's can do that you know.

Good luck on the resolutions!

Cuss less, Damn I don't think I could do that. Though I do have to watch my mouth at work.

Snooty Primadona said...

Did I forget to mention that I only meant on my blog? I will ALWAYS swear at least twice when playing golf, lol. I can't help it.

Heather said...

Thank goodness you will still cuss on the course. I have to watch my mouth because of the damn, I mean darn kids, but I love to let one loose on the course every now and then. My acronyms help me disguise swear words sometimes, but there are certain shots that demand a, "What the f**k was that?" LOL

Snooty Primadona said...

LOL @ Heather.... Exactly!

I had to set the example for my kids and I mostly do not cuss anymore. I had very colorful language when I married TOG! However, after all these years.... there are still times when an F bomb is the only appropriate word to use!

Good luck with your resolutions!

I had to tone down my "potty mouth" when my first grandchild was born. I still slip up occasionally. Good luck!
