I am not usually big on New Year's resolutions- last year, I did not bother to make one. As I stated in last night's post, I resolved to have periodic blog posts concerning Jack Vance.
After yet another view of ittdgy's beautiful nature pix, I also resolved to buy a better camera with a good telephoto lens. Today on the job, I saw my current avian favorite, a chattering, though awfully shy, belted kingfisher that I would love to "capture" on "film". I anticipate purchasing said camera as soon as is feasible, because the first of my annual "pilgrimages" (and future blog post?) will probably take place in February.
I also resolved to renew my 2007 resolution to do one hundred push-ups every weekday, with a daily regimen of sit-ups as well (banged out a weak-ass thirty today before showering for work). Why? Because I hate doing these exercises, and need the imposed discipline of a resolution in order to do them. I adhered to my resolution in '07, so I have a good precendent to follow.
As far as my original 2010, resolution, my next post will start off this Vancian trend...
