I wonder if spammers make New Year’s resolutions? I wonder this because my spam comments, on all my websites, has increased dramatically since the first of the year. So far, they seem to be doing well on their goal to make life a little less enjoyable for all of us. Good for you, spammers and may you suffer the same fate as the asshole who stole my iPhone.
I’m doing well on my 2009 resolutions, mostly because I didn’t make any. If I have no goals, that makes it impossible for me to fail. I did almost make a goal to blog every day, but every time I do that, I blog even less than usual. Because I have no goals regarding blogging, I’ve blogged more this week than I normally do. I usually wait until I have something interesting to say, but I no longer have that goal. Being interesting is something I can only do on rare occasions – mostly when I meet people who don’t know me and find me marginally fascinating, at least for as long as it takes to finish their drink and head back to the bar.
I’m sitting here trying to think of where I’m going with this blog, but I realize I’m using it to avoid paying my bills. Which makes me realize that I have, in fact, violated my goal to have no goals since my goal is to avoid paying my bills.
