Phil’s New Year’s Resolution No. 1

In the age old tradition of Phil’s 12 Days of Christmas, I will now try to come up with New Year’s Resolutions about how I specifically plan to cope with the next 12 months of my life.

Phil’s New Year’s Resolution No. 1: During the Year 2006 I, Phil, resolve not to die. This is priority number 1 for me in the coming year. If I manage that successfully then the rest is gravy. Many of my long time readers, ok, well the few of you that are long time readers, remember my previous post related to this subject. Death is one of my biggest pet peeves. I absolutely hate it. I’m not a big fan of it happening to people I know, and I especially hate the thought of it happening to me. As I’ve previously stated, if presented with the opportunity to be dead I will just refuse to do so. Just as Santa Claus ceases to exist for a child when they stop believing in him, death will cease to exist for me because I refuse to believe it can happen to me. As an example of my gratitude to all of you for being so supportive over the time my blog has existed, I hope you all live through the next year too. Beside, if you die, who will leave me comments?

  5. Aww…you love us.

  6. Fun stuff Phil! Clearly, I can always count on you for a laugh! LOL!! Anyway, just to clarify, are we getting a resolution for each month of the new year(only 12)? To be honest, I am up for one a day from you!!! Please resolve to keep your good sense of humor, because I know when I need a pick-me-up I can read your blog, which to me is just as good as that first cup of java in the morning! Thanks Phil!

  7. Well, that’s a good resolution if I’ve ever heard one. :0)

  8. I believe in reincarnation. So, to me death is just part of the cycle and because of that end, the will be a new beginning and new adventures.But good luck on the not dying. I am keeping my fingers and toes crossed that you are successful.-N

  9. Right on, Phil! Good luck with that. Same here. Wouldn’t miss it for quids.🙂

  10. i fully intend NOT to die. as a matter of fact, i intend to never die.

  11. I’ll try really hard not to die this year.Looking forward to tomorrow’s resolution.

  12. Tigger- Did you change your name?Well-Woman- I hope you do haunt me. I would love to have a ghost hanging around. If you recall my Death House post from October I have no probs with ghosts.Kim, thanks for your kind words. I can’t promise a resolution per day right now since I’m working on moving and doing a lot of writing in other places. Heidi- Thanks for the crossed fingers. I hope you don’t die either.Michelle- Yes, death still terrifies me.Princess- Yes, I do love all of you. That’s why I’m here. Chloe- Great, join the club. Linny- I think it should be everyone’s first resolution, but apparently more people worry about losing weight than being dead. Natalia- If there was a guarantee of reincarnation I’d have no problem with dying. What’s better than a free do-over?Justine- You’ll know I’m dead if I stop blogging.Berly- Yes, please try not to die. I need all the comments I can get here.
