Lazy Resolutions

I realize we are well into the New Year and the resolution thing is old news. Hell most of you have already broken yours by now. But I came up with 3 resolutions I think I might be able to pull off.

1. Increase my Vitamin C intake.
2. Become rich.
3. Use more big words in my posts.

Really if you take a look, they're pretty do-able.
I've already bought a half gallon of Orange Juice, when I finish this post I'm having a glass. That will make three days in a row of drinking orange juice.
I'm buying a lottery ticket tomorrow. When I said, 'Become rich.' I didn't mean by working, I meant by luck. Remember, I don't want to put too much effort into this.
I have a dictionary at hand whenever posting. There are so many words in there I'm not using. Actually, this is the resolution that has me the most pumped, not my health or financial independence, but my blogs. I'll pick a word at the beginning of the week and try to use it in my posts all week. I'm not going to call is Big Word Monday or Dictionary Tuesday, again to much work. I'll pick a new word on which ever day I feel like, that way it won't become a chore.

I've put a full half hour to 45 minutes of cogitation into these resolutions, with these three I will become healthier, wealthier and expand my vocabulary. I can't believe I didn't think of this sooner.

Word of the Week:

cog⋅i⋅ta⋅tion–noun

1. concerted thought or reflection; meditation; contemplation: After hours of cogitation he came up with a new proposal.
2. the faculty of thinking: She was a serious student and had a great power of cogitation.
3. a thought; design or plan: to jot down one's cogitations.

Oh Sue, I saw something totally wrong in your post, well you did not do anything wrong, but at first it looked like Big Dick tuesday and then I read it again. I gotta say I was looking forward to Tuesdays.

I love how you worked cogitation into today's post. You snuck it in so well, I almost didn't catch it. At first I wasn't sure if cogitation was the word of the week, but by definition #3, I was almost certain.

It is cogitation, right? No? Was it lottery, then?


Also? For some reason, Ettarose's comment about Big Dick Tuesday made me snort.

Margaret! I can't believe you caught on so quickly. Cogitation is my word of the week. Ettarose made me snort too.

And Ettarose there will be no Big Dick Tuesday's on this blog. I don't know that many guys named Dick.

Here's to more cogitation into using more big words!

Sue, I don't think so on that last comment, as I think Rhodes is capitalized. ;)

Also I like the resolution. Keep it simple. That's the key.

Oh what fun. Learning new words but without having to go to that tedious dick-tionary to look up the meanings.

Etta - I'm sure you are disappointed but sometimes we get tricked that way using the Evelyn Woods techniques.

Cheers
