New Years Resolutions

Nothing. Zero. Zilch. Nada.

That's about it. One good thing abot the New Year is that it is my birthday which has its advantages.

1. I can usually work out exactly how old I am in exact years, months and days.

2. I always seem to have a public holiday on my birthday.

3. I always get fireworks.

4. The coming in of the new year is also an anniversary of my journey on this blue blob around a small sun on the edge of the galaxy.

5. People remember your birthday more easily than other "standard" days such as May 13th.

6. In my younger days I got one kiss for the new year and one for the birthday!

Things that suck about having a birthday around this time of year.

1. Sometimes I feel a little seedy on the day as do others.

2. When I was a kid, Xmas and birthday presents were "combined". A guy who has his birthday at Christmas also has the same dilemma.

3. A lot of things are closed, so going out can be a hassle.

This year I spent New Year's Eve perched on a hill some 15km away from the fireworks on Sydney Harbour, watching a set of four synchronized firework launch spots going off at once. It was wonderful. Jan 1st was an extremely hot 43 degrees c (110 Farenheit) so most of the day was spent ducking from air conditioned location to another, although I did take a swim at Wentworth Falls Lakes later in the day.

Numerogically I'm a seven in a one year which heralds in a batch of new beginnings. It should be exciting.

Paraphrasing sleepy. Hope "y'all" have a great new year and keep writing.


  • Many happy returns, and may 2006 be full of good adventure. Glad to see you are there, and not a bunch of burning ashes flying in the wind.

  • Thankyou Peter, it was a little worrying there for a bit. But nothing eventuated of the heat and the wind.

  • Happy New Birthday!! The present thing would have been a bugger as a kid.

  • Happy Birthday, you little New Year's babe, you! More reason to party every year, I suppose. Here's to Johnno!
