A Resolution Kept

'Twas about a year ago when I decided that ordinary New Years' resolutions were a colossal waste of time. You spend hours deciding what to resolve, and then several tortured days or weeks trying to keep those resolutions before throwing up your hands and giving up in disgust.

No more, I decided. Instead, I, the Chuckmeister, decided I'd make and keep two relatively simple resolutions: One, I'd try to gain ten pounds, and Two, I'd start a blog. Gaining a few LLL BBB's shouldn't be too tough, I figured. I have been plagued with a bad back for years so my exercise level is nil and my caloric retention level is quite high. As to the blog part, I thought that might be quite a bit tougher. But my friend Geoff West, who just happens to be a blogger extraordinaire and purveyor of "A Bubbling Cauldron," a blog of some considerable repute and influence around these parts, suggested to me that I had a lot more to say than there was ink at the local paper to print it. So, I took a deep breath and began to compose my first entry. January 6th, 2010 it was, and I haven't looked back. Since then I've posted some 47 times on every subject I thought worth the trouble. I'd like to say that each and every one of those blog entries was incise, pithy, well reasoned and breathtakingly lucid. I'd like to say that, but I can't. What I can say is that each and every one gave me a warm and fuzzy feeling when I pushed the "Publish" button, sending my humble thoughts out on an Internet mission in search of a reader somewhere - anywhere. And rest assured, dear reader, I take my responsibilities seriously. These ramblings of a troubled mind will continued unabated well into the future if the Great Gods of Electrons prove willing.

So, fellow carbon-based life forms, I send these thoughts along to you with the hope that your 2011 proves happy, healthy, productive and enjoyable. And remember, never take life too seriously. You'll never get out of it alive...
