It's 2008 or something

I do not do resolutions. I think they're silly and pointless. And if you make them and feel judged by that comment, well, sorry, you do your thing and I'll do mine. I just know that making some kind of absolute statement about what I will or will not do in the new year will just backfire on me when I am suddenly eating sugar or watching too much porn or not doing more creative writing. I try to work on change and growth all the time in various ways and I figure that's the best way to approach it. Trying to build a wall between the current year and the one that just ended seems childish. Like the self-improvement version of jamming your fingers in your ears and shouting "LALALA, I CAN'T HEAR YOU!!!" And people always end up seeming so pissed around the first week of February when they're lives aren't all magickally better and resolved. In the words of many great philosophers: DUH!

One thing I would like to do this year is start a new band. And it's not because I do not love my current band because I do. But I like new musical experiences. They push me as a drummer and they're always fun and challenging. After the semi-dyke-dramatic dissolution of my old band I think I unconsciously steered myself towards and all dude situation. But I am over all that old stuff and I miss being in a band with some gender balance and a different approach to song writing and such than the band I am currently in. I'll always love poppy, catchy stuff but I'd like to move towards some different sounds than EXBF and push myself to drum a bit differently. So hopefully I can get that going and have big fun with it.

Oh, also, I resolve to have a lot of sex with Chris Meloni. Mark my words.

I will address each paragraph in enumerated form.

1. I totally agree, and I always think: Jeez, can't you have any sort of conviction or zeal to achieve anything on a day other than January 1?

2. Branching out is good, as long as you don't quit Ex-Boyfriends any time soon, because I won't let you do that, because obviously I have that kind of control.

3. That's the only sensible resolution I've ever heard. Alternately, mmmmm.

Do you think I should let Chris Meloni know in advance or just show up at his trailer on the SVU set with a bottle of Cristal and some lube?

The latter. Let him know you've got jurisdiction in his precinct.

In the criminal justice system he's is going to be especially sexed up.

That sounds especially heinous.
