My New Year's Eve Hodge-Podge

I'm not going out to celebrate tonight; that gets old after so many years. I am looking forward to the New Year, though. 2006 had its ups and downs -- as, I suppose, do all years. There will be distinct and substantive changes in '07, for sure. And I am more than ready for that. Out with the old, in with the new. In more ways than one.

Which reminds me of another rule for 2007: If I'm going to waste time, I prefer to squander it on something pleasurable. I have no patience for trifling with the pinheads, pimps, panderers, Philistines, prevaricators, Pollyannas, and provocateurs of the world. Give me a break.

Do you make New Year's resolutions?
Do you keep the resolutions you make?
Do you consider it pointless to make resolutions?
Are you nevertheless committed to making some changes in your life this year?
Do you believe in fate?
Do you believe in free will?
Do you believe in karmic justice?


One thing I firmly believe vis-à-vis writing is that you must love your characters. If you don't, they are not going to do what you need them to do for you. I've lately reached the conclusion that with regard to my current WIP, I don't have enough love for my characters. Without the requisite amount of affection on my part, small wonder that they're not performing magic for me. Thus, I can see that I need to tweak them and make them both stronger and more solid and, hence, more loveable. I think that when I love them a little more, they're going to be capable of doing much greater things. I'm not calling it a New Year's resolution, but it is a resolution. I am resolved to making them work harder for me.

Your Expression Number is 7
Very intelligent, you are usually thinking, introspecting, or analyzing.
You have a good mind, and you are especially good at finding out the truth.
Very little ever escapes your observation and deep understanding.

You tend to obsess over wisdom and hidden truths.
You are likely to become a authority on any subject you undertake.
Operating on a different wavelength, most people don't know you that well.

Very logical and rational, at times you tend to lack emotion.
So much so, that you often have times coping with emotional situations.
You are not very adaptable - you may tend to be overly critical at times.

Uh, um, that is nothing like, ah.....

New Years Eve is THE day to stay home......I learned 16 years ago when I got a DUI (defered), that New Years is the day to stay home and be quiet....

I'm also a number 7. The last paragraph is pretty accurate. I'm not emotional most of the time and I am critical. But not being emotional has its benefits especially when a cool head is needed in a crisis situation.

I can't remember the last time I went out for New Years Eve.

Serena Joy said...

Mmm-hmm, little bit of thieving going on, looks like to me. You both got MY lucky number. LOL.

Roxan, I'm critical, too. Damn straight, I am. I see it as a civic duty. I mean, if people like you and I don't point out lunacy when we see it, who will?:)
