There I was, drinking wine, watching Columbo on DVD (a Christmas present!), and I suddenly realized: I don’t want to make my Lame Post Friday post on Saturday! What’s a blogger to do? Pour another glass of wine and blog away while Peter Falk continues to track down the killer.
I said earlier today I might write something about New Year’s Resolutions. Many people these days get all huffy when you bring up New Year’s Resolutions (you know who you are). “I don’t make New Year’s Resolutions!” they aver. “When I see something about myself that needs improvement, I make that change. I don’t wait till January 1st to do it.” Their implication, of course, is that they really need no improvement, how presumptuous of me to imply such a thing. It could be, and how envious I am of such self confidence!
However, the “make improvements any time” school of thought makes me wonder if New Year’s Resolutions are not a gigantic excuse to behave very badly for the latter part of December. One could add “or longer!” although I like to think most of us would feel a little silly saying something like, “I can’t start a diet in July; I must wait till January 1st!”
I guess I don’t really have much to say about New Year’s Resolutions, not even Columbo’s “one more thing.” However, I see I am over 200 words. That works, especially on Lame Post Friday. Back to Columbo!
