My Predictions (Not Resolutions) For 2007
No, these aren’t “resolutions”, they're more like “prophecies”, Ya’ know, since I’m bad like that.
*Finish Christmas shopping before Christmas. Would you believe we haven’t finished from last year? Unless you’re one of our friends (or possible relatives) reading this who we haven’t seen yet, then yeah, we got your gift weeks ago.
*I will learn to speak French (again). Before going to Japan my wife and I used those audio-only Pimsleur learning CD’s. They worked pretty well - natives were pretty impressed. I’m hoping to do the same thing for our trip to France in October. And it helps that the wife speaks fluent French.
*My daughter will be potty trained by the end of the year. I wish she were trained now because on some days you’d swear she eats nothing but raw meat and beans. A diaper is a real nasty thing. Actually, she’s been telling us “poo-poo” when she’s done her business or is about to seal the deal. That means something, right?
*Apple will release a “real” movie iPod. And I’ll buy the thing the day Steve Jobs announces it wearing those stupid jeans, black turtleneck, and tennis shoes (somebody’s got to tell him it’s not 1986 anymore.)
* I’ll never knowingly use the urinal next to the big boss at work ever again. That just happened this morning and well, talk about ‘stage fright’.
*I’ll stop watching Golden Girls late at night. It annoys the wife and she leaves the room. Actually, I’ll have to really think about this one - Rose and “Ma” are pretty funny. Count this as the first one to go down in flames.
*Nintendo Wii’s will be plentiful. And I’ll laugh at myself for waiting in line at Best Buy with those crazy people a few weeks ago.
What about all of you...have any 'resolutions', I mean prophecies?
