Four movies in one day? That’s sooooooo 2010

I don’t like lists of New Year’s resolutions. They’re inevitably the same thing across the board for everyone, with a few minor alterations to make them, as possible, slightly more personal. The lists are familiar: lose weight, become a better person, donate more time/money to charity, blah blah blah.

Those lists are fine, but really, those aren’t things we should make ourselves do just because new calendars go up on our walls. I try (and often fail) to lose weight, become a better person and donate time/money to charity. I am, however, quite good at the blah blah blah.

Last year, I decided to make a list of fun (at least to me) things to do in 2010. The list included:
• Finish Stephen King’s “The Dark Tower” series (I had read two of the seven prior to this year)
• Watch four movies in a theatre in one day (my previous record was three, done at least two different times)
Run a 5K

So, for 2010, I was three-for-three, even adding a few others in as the year progressed, including singing karaoke (not as a featured performer, mind you, but as a background singer; either way it still counts) and eating a one-pound hamburger.


Mmmmmm … burger.
I honestly can’t remember if “bench press 275 pounds) was on that list, but if it was I failed that one.

I’m trying to think of my official Things to Do in 2011 list, and I’m going to solicit a few ideas before making a formal announcement. So far, ideas include:
• Watching the “Twilight” movies (I’d do it to make fun of them)
• Read Great Expectations
• Complete the Buffalo Wild Wings Blazing Wings Challenge
• Eat another one-pound burger (I really just want to enjoy that burger again)
• Watch the entire Battlestar Galactica series
• Write (and finish) 80-100-page story
• Write and record an album (or, at the very least, a 5-7-song EP)

Please leave some good suggestions in the comments section, and I’ll follow up later with my selections.

  1. Your personal Blockbuster has the entire Twilight series that have been released on DVD-you may borrow them Jan. 1 to begin your quest. 🙂
