my resolutions are:
-Increase alcohol-cost efficiency by spilling less beer
-Use George Foreman grill to make hamburgers to go with beer
-Get caught on ATOT by my boss less, in turn getting yelled at less
-To find a girl to see thats NOT dumb as a doorknob
-Get a ticket for going over 100mph in my 88 Camry 4cyl, then dispute the ticket saying my car doesn't go that fast
-Convince my roommate to put down at least a few of his dogs that are too big to walk and in turn pee on themselves in the house

Okay...my serious resolution (like I ever wear pants anyway) is to upgrade my road racing (cycling) license from Cat 3 to Cat 2. I'm pretty sure I can do it, I just need to buckle down and do some serious training this year.

FYI- the categories in cycling are 1-5 (1=highest, 5=n00b). You move to the next highest Cat by placing top 6 in a USCF event (7point for 1st, 5 for 2nd, down to 1 point for 6th). When you have X number of points (I'll need 30 over 12 months) you can petition your rep to cat up.

The only downside is that the 2s usually race against 1s and pros so I could conceivably end up racing against Lance Armstrong's teammates next year if I manage to cat up (USPS does compete in many domestic races and a few of his teammates live up the road in Greenville, SC).

It's unpossible :Q Knowing that you ride in a thong........... I am sure all the other cat 1 & 2 people will not want you in the lead ;) and the "broom truck" will sweep you away ;)


ps. Good Luck :)
