New Year Resolutions

Postby Poodle » Wed Jan 01, 2014 9:23 am

New Year Resolutions Part 1a (63b) Subsection 4

1. I will not get sucked in by troll arguments, no matter how amusing.
2. I will be scrupulously polite to all idiots, no matter how provoked.
3. I will not believe in impossible things, no matter ... hang on ...

Well, they didn't last long.

I will do my best to limit my interaction with trolls to one or two responses than then forget it, life is too short.

Eggnog! What a bright new idea. I don't have to drink bloody marys all the time. ;)

Unless they put an egg in it, I don't see the connection.

No eggs. In fact, no coffee either.

Just whiskey. In an empty bathtub, singing "The Rose of Tralee" until the pain goes away.

It's a remedy found somewhere between "medically responsible", and "complete and utter flimflam".
