New Year Resolutions for 2005

I usually don't make resolutions because I know I probably won't keep them but I'm going to make some up just in case I decide to keep them. So here they are:

1) Learn to eat with chopsticks. (But my mom says to do this I must eat slower, so...)

2) Eat slower.

3) Make a new friend.

4) Not talk about people behind their backs (I hate when people do it to me, so why do it to them.)

5) Not label things "BAD" in my mind so quickly. Be open.

6) Try new things.*

7) Use asterisks and footnotes more often.

8) Improve my singing voice.

9) Lose the weight complex. (Either by losing weight or by accepting this is the body I'm stuck in.)

10) Think of a tenth resolution.

11) Gain more self-confidence, let go of my insecurities (of which I have a lot of.)

12) Coin a new cathphrase a la "poopie farts" and "tres cool."

13) Make more lists. It's very fun.

14) Not make fun of my little brother anymore.

* Minus drugs.

So yesterday I saw the Lemony Snicket movie. It was very good, a bit different from the books, but a faithful and enjoyable adaptation nontheless. I really enjoyed to movie, however it probably was one of the WORST movie going experiences of my life. Let's see, there was this little kid who somehow knew all of the words in the movie and repeated most of them aloud. Like how many times could this kid have seen the movie to know most of the words? It makes me sick to think about it. The couple behind me insisted on shaking their bag of popcorn repeatedly in my ear. THREE cellphones went off at separate times during the movie. Including one from a black family who was sitting in front of me, who I SWEAR it must've been their first time in a movie theater. This family not only had a cellphone go off, the mother answered it and talked to the person on the other end. IN THE MIDDLE (well towards the end) OF THE MOVIE!! And the kids would stand up when the movie would get intense, like they were ready to run out of there at any moment. The mother got up three times to go to the bathroom (BIG WOMAN, itty bitty bladder I guess). But the clincher for me, was when Jim Carrey's character appeared on the screen in a disguise (you'll have to see the movie to know what I mean) the woman said, very loudly, "WHO DAT?" I mean, c'mon lady. How old are you? It was terrible. But the movie was good.
