Happy New Half Of The Year!

Today at noon, the year officially rolled over into its second half. Can you believe that? To celebrate, we're going to be recapping resolutions and confessing whether we've managed to stick to them or not. For those who would rather not participate (chicken shits), there's a gigantic chocolate fountain in the back. I hope you brought your bathing suit! Please, no cannonballs in the shallow end.


1. Don't die. (Well die eventually, just not this year.)
Check. Although, I think I died a little when I heard Jamie Lynn's baby wasn't born with two heads. Where's the justice anymore?

2. Don't kill anyone. (Unless they're really asking for it.)
Check. But if I don't get my refund from the Hilltop soon, that may change.

3. Keep your sanity. (I will guard this last marble with my life.)
Check. It seems I'm adding and then subtracting marbles daily. We'll come back to this one when the wedding is closer.

4. Walk more. (Instead of scooting across the office in your chair yelling, "Weeee!")
Does pacing count? If so, check!

5. Buy new clothes. (Well, if you insist.)
How did I forget this resolution?! I'm going out to fulfill this one tonight.

6. Take up a new dirty habit to replace smoking. (Like gardening... Or crack.)
What is... Etsy, ITunes, Boba, and Yahoo Answers.

7. Create a new slang word and see if it sticks. ("Yo Blo." BLO: the shorthand of Blogger. Also referred to as a Homebloy.)
Oh yeah Homebloys. So I only have one other person saying it *cough*Newt*cough*. But that's one more than I had in January! Progress baby, progress.

8. Spread some love through the Blogosphere.
Aw. Do you feel loved yet? What if I bribe you with goodies during the upcoming PB Contest?

3rd Annual Blog Header Showdown Recap:
(Say that ten times fast)
As you can see, "Peeking" was the winner. I think saying it won by a "long shot" would be an understatement. The final statistics were:

Peeking- 74.4%
Bullshittier- 11.6%
What's For Blog- 14%

Thanks to everyone who voted! Without you, well, this place would suck.

i see blue corners at the top, are those supposed to be there (i'm viewing on a Mac w/ Safari)

At 30 June, 2008, Blogger Chris said...

I didn't make any resolutions, so I'm right on track.

"Peeking" is awesome!

At 30 June, 2008, Blogger Knight said...

Peeking looks so GOOD up there!

I like to promptly forget what my resolutions were so I never feel about about not doing any of them.

If you kill the people at the Hilltop they are asking for it so technically you are still on track.

Later homebloy!

LOVE peeking!

My resolution was ... huh. Didn't I make one? Oh, right, I didn't. Because it would've been broken by Jan 2.

So yay me!

Furiousball: That's part of the Blogger template. No matter what I do, I can never seem to get rid of it. It only shows up as a faint outline on my screen. Is it more noticeable on yours?

At 30 June, 2008, Blogger Jay said...

I may not have accomplished all (okay ANY) of my resolutions yet, but it's still early. I used this same "wait til the last minute" strategy in college and it worked just fine.

Most of the time.

Bullshitier and What's for Blog never stood a chance.

my resolution was not to make resolutions this year, that way I could not break them for the first time ever. So, YAY me for having unbroken New Years resolutions this year!! Um, can I still jump in the chocolate?

At 30 June, 2008, Blogger Dana said...

Love PEEKER! And there is a reason the only resolution I make is to not make a resolution. Yep! Chicken shit comes to mind.

The new header looks GREAT!!

At 30 June, 2008, Blogger Alice said...

I guess you could always trade in your smoking for porn - it's plenty dirty and less taxing on your lungs!

At 30 June, 2008, Blogger Reb said...

I do like this header (even if I didn't vote for it). I have kept the resolution that I made when I was about 16 to mot make any more resolutions - and no, I won't tell how many years that's been.

i must join the ranks of those who resolve not to resolve.

there's safety in numbers.

At 30 June, 2008, Blogger fiwa said...

Woohoo!!! I didn't make any resolutions - does that mean I can head straight to the chocolate fountain with the rest of my homebloy chickenshits?! I knew it would pay off sometime.

Of COURSE peeking won by a landslide. It's cute.

PS... the yeastie girls song is, um...quite explicit. I guess I should have mentioned that when I listed it, huh?

At 30 June, 2008, Blogger meno said...

Looks good around here.

I bravely didn't make any resolutions either. *getting on bathing suit*

At 30 June, 2008, Blogger gary rith said...

Smooch baby, I love your blog and YES, you do spread joy throughout the blogoshphere.
My resolution 2008? 'Drink only good whiskey'. CHECK. I succeed there daily.

At 30 June, 2008, Blogger Pamer said...

i love the "peeking" banner...reminds me of Kilroy...remember "Kilroy was here"???

Happy Half New Year!!!

I feel the love everyday from The Pickled Beef


PS Happy Canada Day tomorrow!!!

Ya, you're welcome. Peeking was totally my idea.

Really glad to see you haven't killed anyone...yet...

At 30 June, 2008, Blogger Newt said...

Looks marvelous darling. Or should I say Homebloy!

At 01 July, 2008, Blogger Mary said...

On Weeds tonight they were using Blah blah very similarly to using blo. Coinsidence?

At 01 July, 2008, Blogger captain corky said...

I say go with crack. Gardening can be so boring, but CRACK is Exciting and FUN. ;)

At 01 July, 2008, Blogger Terri said...

way cool and the one I voted for!

Ahhh yes, very nice header. I thought you had another resolution, show everyone your boobs. No? and if you are going to buy clothes, I suggest Garanimals. Very stylish ...


At 02 July, 2008, Blogger Sparkling Red said...

I'm a little confused by #5, because if I had made a resolution it would be to STOP buying so many new clothes. And shoes. Maybe I could send you some of my extra new clothes and then we'd both balance out. I have really good taste. You'll look hot, trust me.

Awww, I thought I had voted, but I can't find myself on the map (I checked my vacation location, just to be sure). Oh, well, my choice won, so you must of gotten it telepathically, right?
