Resolution Conclusions

A debrief on my New Years Resolutions for 2006.

1: Steve

I wrote [here][] about my resolution to get to know Steve, my neighbour. I did actually talk to him over the garden fence once, on the subject of disposal of garden waste. And then I moved house. And so did he. So I think I’ve done as well as could be expected.


2: Read less

I also resolved to read less. In 2005, I read 33 books. So far, in 2006 I have read 11. Result.

3: Be More Aragorn

This was always a very fuzzy goal, especially as I never precisely defined what the terms mean. It’s going to be hard to know whether I succeeded or not. I have built a lot of flat-packed furniture this year, and I think Aragorn would approve of that, so let’s call it a success.

4: Eat more chilli con carne

We got off to a good start on this one, having chilli every Sunday night. But then with the arrival of Bernard, we were a little less organised, and it’s fallen on our priorities list.

Still, I’m pretty sure that I ate more chilli con carne this year than last. So let’s call that one a success too.

5: Work through the exercises in Fretless Bass: A Hands-On Guide Including Fundamentals, Techniques, Grooves and Solos by Bunny Brunel and Josquin de Pres

I managed to make it most of the way through this book. But hey, there are still a couple of months of the year left, so perhaps it is not too late.
