I read nonfiction, but I'd rather write humor. I am not perfect, nor am I consistent. I am a work in progress.

Why make real resolutions when you'll abandon them anyway?

New Year's Resolutions Are Funny

Every year people make resolutions to change something about themselves or start doing something differently. Unfortunately, their New Year's resolutions end quickly, and soon they are back to the same thing again. Setting New Year's resolutions has become such a joke that it's probably more useful to write a list of funny resolutions and laugh at them. You could, of course, set resolutions for yourself at any time of the year.

40 Resolutions to Make You Laugh

Here is a list of funny New Year's resolutions that you can laugh at before you set yourself up for failure this year. Write your own funny New Year's resolutions at the bottom of this page, so the list can be even longer. Good luck resisting falling into the resolutions trap!

I will...

  1. Watch more cute and cuddly kitten videos on YouTube.
  2. Check my work e-mail account at least once this year.
  3. Switch my username to “password” and my password to “username” to make each a lot harder for hackers to figure out.
  4. Watch less TV . . . in standard definition.
  5. Stop buying worthless junk on eBay—because QVC has better specials.
  6. Start using Facebook for something other than Farmville and stupid quizzes.
  7. Help kids stay safe by not texting on my cell phone while eating McDonald’s and speeding through crosswalks in school zones with a frost-covered windshield.
  8. Avoid fingertip soreness by learning to play Rock Band instead of a real guitar.
  9. Start a blog about how I would write more often if I had something important to write. Only make one blog entry and leave it published for years.

Hey, I am giving something up.

10 Resolutions About Money and Finances

I will...

  1. Pay off my credit cards every month in full . . . with my other credit cards.
  2. Save some money for a rainy day. That way I can shop online instead of having to go to an actual store.
  3. Keep better records throughout the year. That way I can listen to better music while I'm figuring my taxes.
  4. Look for investors for my "home office" business.
  5. Lower my bills by digging a hole to put them in.
  6. Avoid getting a divorce by practicing polygamy.
  7. Borrow things more often. Return them less often.
  8. Visit the grocery more often than restaurants, especially when free samples are being served.
  9. Buy a fire extinguisher—so my money won't burn a hole in my pocket.
  10. Stop throwing away money that could at least be burned for heat.

      Hi Blake ~ Thanks for the early morning laughs to start my day, especially the one I made about paying off my credit cards every month. My husband thought that was funny coming out of my mouth about twenty years ago.
