The Un-Resolution List 2013

Things I will never do, because I do not want to:

1. Swim in or travel to the Amazon.
There are too many lifeforms that can get into and up a human being. Armchair travel suffices and I leave the experience to travel writers and National Geographic journalists.

2. Eat Fugu.
Puffer fish are droll; the fish that turns into a balloon when stressed and paralyzes you if you did not get the hint.

3. Go bungee jumping.
It is not like flying. It is a high speed spine adjustment.

4. Eat anything endangered.
That is how most species became endangered to begin with.

5. Go unexplored cave spelunking.
Toxic guano fumes, spores and methane gas. Also, I watched "The Descent". Creepy white things without eyes are creepy, despite natural selection and the wonders of evolution.

6. Take a wilderness survival course.
I do not believe in reenacting the past without costumes until I have to.

7. Always write a list of 10.
Who came up with that rule?


  1. I have always been afraid that I would have fugu made by the guy who finished last in his class at culinary school.

    1. The Emperor of Japan is not permitted to eat fugu, even by the guy who graduated top in his class. We're in great company.

  2. I like the idea of an un-resolution. There are many things I'd like to try just to say I had, but I'm pretty much in agreement with your whole list. No bungee jumping, but I am borderline on sky diving. Part of me really wants to, but I have a big fear of falling.

    1. Some of these were on my list, then I looked into it and decided against it. Sky diving is safe. Scary, but safe. A while back saw someone in the news who went skydiving in her eighties...Just saying.

    2. Then I have another 40 years to work up to it. :)

    1. Right? This is one of those obscure questions neither one of us is going to look up.

  4. What is this??? you are posting more than me? lol!
    What is the word coming to?...
    I'm scared...

    seriously.. I never make know I don't conform.

    1. Lol. It won't last long.
      That's a very deep comment; what is the word coming to, indeed?;)

      I think I get more done when I don't make resolutions.

  5. I'm fairly certain I can stick to some of those too. I don't see going into unexplored caves or bungee jumping happening any time this year for me.

    1. Vinny weren't we spelunking in Ants dream? So, technically we've already done it. Gee, I feel much better, don't you?

    2. @Vinny, if it ever happens involuntarily, you're in the wrong movie.
      @Sprite, how can you be in my dream when I don't know what happened?
      It wasn't a dream was it? We're in the matrix. *Gasp*

  6. Perfect, un-resolutions. I have to agree about the bungee jumping thing- seems like self-inflicted whiplash. Pass!

    1. Hello winopants. Am I right?
      Some things need to be crossed off lists without doing them.
