New Year's Whatevers

I know that all of you youngsters out there have made resolutions like:lose weight, save money, drink more. (Oh wait.  That last one might be mine.)

Me?  I want to stay vertical.  Seriously.  At my age, vertical is good. 
But the expectation is that I need to make resolutions that I'll actually have some control over.  So....

#1: Wear more hats.

Not just any el cheapo hat, but a hat that the Queen of England would wear.  My philosophy is: if you're going to wear a hat, make it count.
 
#2: Make some soup.  And eat it while you sit in front of the television, watching "Lassie."  Not the original "Lassie" with Timmy, but the one I remember best, with the forest ranger.

#3: See if I can get arrested for something and then claim "diplomatic immunity."  Just like on NCIS.

 
 
 

So...of these things I resolve to accomplish in 2013, I may be able to drink more.  Because, well...I can.

  1. Drink more and wear hats!!! Love it. I think instead of Lassie I would sit and watch old reruns of the Beverley Hillbillies. I bet those are a hoot after a couple of martinis

  4. I hope you are wearing just the right hat when you get arrested...there are those mug shots to consider!

  5. I prefer horizontal. Except I can't drink when I'm horizontal...here's to your quest for important and lovely hats.

  6. Put on your fine hat, have a few, perform a random act of Kirby and then maybe you'll be arrested.

  7. You are so much better than me.I mad NO resolutions this year. I don't cook, I don't own a TV (although I could probably find Lassie on Netflix) and I am afraid I might run into some of my former students in jail. I do have some lovely hats though.

    Good luck with your resolutions.

  9. You could go to England, put on a mighty fine Queen of England style hat, and get drunk while reading about Lassie and her forest ranger dude. Maybe you will get arrested for some obscure law they have that prevents such a public display of frivolity while disguised as the Queen of England. I bet if they don't have such a law, they will make up a special law just for you and name it the Kirby in a Queens Hat Rule.

  10. I hate hat hair, so wearing more hats won't be on my list. Unless of course I never have to take the hat off for anyone to see the hat hair?

  11. diplomatic immunity...I like it. I love wearing hats, but they're not Queen worthy. Eat in front the t.v. I've got that one covered. I love your sense of humor.

  12. Oh I so wish I were a hat girl! I just end up looking dorky, but you go girl! Lassie? A possibility. We almost always eat in front of the TV. Drinking? I'm already there. Black Velvet Toasted Caramel.
