In addition to finding boxers that fit, getting a hair cut, my back waxed and fixing that damn computer, here's my checklist for 2009:
Begin eating mushrooms.
Successfully silk screen a shirt.
Influence popular opinion regarding the current donut situation in the Yellow.
Run 5 miles in succession twice a week by end of the year.
Lose 20 pounds.
Give away 400 CDs.
Successfully silk screen a painting of James Brown.
Do a blog entry each day of June--30 posts total within the month.
Submit to a calendar company, a fully developed idea for The Root Down desk calendar.
Learn to shuffle cards.

Become more knowledgeable in Blues and the key components and players.

Less coffee in 2009.
Cut back soda consumption to one reasonably sized soda a month.
