1. Somehow pay off the bike and car.
2. Burn off 3 or 4 inches of fat off the spare tire so I can fit into the leathers/pants better. I'm waiting on the pending corporate health club benifits.
3. Get as many track days as possible in while still accomplishing #1 up there.

Thinking in terms of "listing" and "resolutions" is simply looking at the formal, typically perceived structure of resolution making space-time. I, instead, focus on the possibility of the resolution making itself; what appears to be a random act is thus actually the norm ---- it is the **list** which is the freak of chance. Indeed, quantum mechanics now demonstrates what we knew all along: two or more lists can simultaneously exist in the same place at the same time. Thus, by attuning oneself to the dynamic energy (called "listing"), one can manifest the resolution. Of course, to the unknowledgeable, this appears as making a list of resolutions.

Be careful with that stuff. While, I have used it in the past and is quite effective, Xenadrine, is like Rocket Fuel for your ticker. Start off on small doses and work your way up to the prescribed/recommend amount.

For those who don't know me, I was just joking about the previous post....

Seriously, I don't do resolutions. Self-improvement is a year-round effort, not just something to dwell on once a year.

Hmmmm I hate this time of the year but here is my list

#1) Lose weight, so I can get back into my old leathers

#2) Stop being such a smart ass...I'm going to miss the spousal unit flipping me the bird and wearing my cool T-shirt that reads...."Thats MR. Asshole to you!"

#3)Ride everyday I can to work.

#4)Try to organize group rides every Sunday morning for the summer.

#5) Park my bike in "Harley spots only" at the Penny Road Pub, and see how many times I get my ass kicked.

#6) Try to attend more social gatherings with other CLSB members.

#7) Try to get my list of things to do down to one page.

Rick
