I am NOT going to resolve to:

1. Gain back the 22 pounds I have lost since October.

2. Stop going to water aerobics classes as many times per week as I can.

3. Eat all the chocolate and other goodies that are in this house right now!

4. Never finish writing about the experience and aftermath of litigating Conservatorship of Wendland.

5. Stop practicing my flute at what the neighbors probably consider ungodly hours. Sometimes that’s the only time left in the day!

6. Stop watching Letterman while practicing my flute.

7. Never work my way through the pile of books I have stacked up on my nightstand and have vowed to read.

8. Wear my same, old, black concert attire when I perform with the Delta Winds at on March 28, 2007.

9. Be anywhere but right in front of my television — with all telephones unplugged or turned off — when the final season of The Sopranos finally premieres in April.

10. Replace the ring tone on my cell phone with something other than the theme from The Sopranos.

11. Replace the wallpaper on my cell phone with something other than a picture of James Gandolfini as Tony Soprano.

12. Watch the decimated version of The Sopranos on A&E.

13. Resume watching One Life to Live so long as anyone other than my dear friend, Clint Ritchie, is portraying Clint Buchanan.


  1. I don’t participate – but I often read and comment.
    Yours was most entertaining —

    What a busy life you lead. When do you find time for Tony Soprano? Grin.

    Fortunately, I don’t require a lot of sleep! ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. How funnny!

    You had at “The Sopranos!”

    Totally addicted myself! Happy Thursday! Thanks for stopping by “The Garden!”

    great list! very creative!

    i’m also intrigued by the attorney/musician thing – you must have a lot of energy!

    happy thursday!

  6. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Great list! Love it!

    I like the cartoon rendering of you. I think you’ve made it as a lawyer when the courtroom is closed to reporters and someone makes an artist rendering of you.


  7. Let me guess…you don’t like the Sopranos? ๐Ÿ™‚ Great list! Happy Thursday and Happy New Year!

    Diana: That’s an artist’s rendering of me arguing before the California Supreme Court. The courtroom was full of reporters from around the world — just no videocameras, hence, the need for artists.

  9. Sounds like you have a lot of resolutions “NOT” to do! I think that’s better than trying to keep a bunch. Have fun with them!

  10. I’d like to loose 22 lbs myself! Great blog, thanks for stopping by mine!

    Very funny, great idea. I love the Sopranos, too. But at least I’ll have 24 to keep me busy until April. ๐Ÿ˜‰
    Thanks for visiting.
