New year resolutions Friday 5

Sally over at RevGalBlogPals writes: Well it had to be didn't it, love them or hate them I bet you've been asked about New Year resolutions. So with no more fuss here is this week's Friday Five:

(It'll be a tandem play for us this week -- good thing, because it's been a while since either of us played!)

1. Do you make New Year resolutions?
The Typist: I used to, but I've been trying to stay away from them.
Cub: I have made and kept resolutions in the past, but I don't feel the need to be so formal this year. My fellow RevGalDogPal Scout says it well: "Silly! Dogs don’t have New Year’s resolutions! We live in the moment. We don’t regret the past. We don’t hope to do better. We know we are always doing our best."

2. Is this something you take seriously, or is it a bit of fun?
The Typist: Well, if I make a resolution it can be any time of year, and yes, I'd take it seriously. But for New Year stuff, nothing special. For a bit of fun, though, Questing Parson has a nice set of resolutions this year.
Cub: As a dog, there's not much that I take too seriously.

3. Share one goal for 2008.
The Typist: To behave at General Conference in a manner that honors God and my fellow delegates.
Cub: To be the best girl I can be.

4. Money is no barrier, share one wild/ impossible dream for 2008.
The Typist: Using about twice the vacation time I have available so I could not only go to the RGBP Big Event and GC2008, but also to things I've had to skip this year, like Perkins Theological School for the Laity, various locations in Alaska, and a visit to my niece in graduate school. And, while we're dreaming, have Cub with me at all of those things.
Cub: Frosty Paws every single day!!!!

5. Someone wants to publish a story of your year in 2008, what will the title of that book be?
The Typist: Confessions of a Church Nerd: Admitting That Following My Instructions Wouldn't Fix Everything
Cub: Bad Liver, Good Life: One Dog's Journey With the Thumb-Havers Who Would Do Anything For Her

love it--your title is fantastic!

i'll be at GC too! not as a delegate, just an observer.

perhaps we could have a revgal meetup at conference?

Big Human and I tried to get Ruthie and Lulu to come up with some New Year's resolutions. We are becoming increasingly convinced that they are wasting their lives in a fog of naps, Cat Chow, and rolling in the grass. But when we had an intervention, Ruthie just said she wanted to sleep more and Lulu stared at us blankly. Looks like it's going to be more of the same in 2008.

I like both of your answers... As to behaving at GC... EH. What fun is that?

I saw go for the Frosty Paws, Cub. You deserve them. Even the cats say so!

Way to go Cub! Behave at a conference? Sin boldly! Or live in the moment, don't regret the past.

Living in the moment and Frosty Paws... my UM puppy agrees!
