I, Phil, resolve no to watch any “Year in Review,” “The Best of 2005,” or “The Top (fill in the blank) of 2005” shows. I also resolve not to read any “Best and Worst of 2005” type news, sports, or entertainment articles in magazines, newspapers, or on websites. I know damn well what happened during the past 12 months! We all do. Unless you’re a coma victim, no one needs these shows or articles. Furthermore, I don’t need a television show or magazine article telling me what was important in the last 52 weeks. I think I’ll decide what I think was important to me during the last 365 days. And I am not voting in any sort of online poll regarding the events or movies of 2005. And for the sake of all that is holy, NO MORE NICK AND JESSICA UPDATES!!!!! Judging by the conversations of the women in my office you’d think that the Nick and Jessica break-up was the biggest disaster of 2005. If you mention Katrina to them they’re likely to give you a blank stare and ask if Katrina was the one who dated Ben Affleck right after J.Lo but before Jennifer Garner.
