It Ain't Over 'Til It's Over

The Alibi's New Year's Guide

The end is upon us, but it's not here yet. The wrapping paper is still piled on the floor, and there's enough turkey in the freezer to feed a family of six for weeks. It's been a stressful year, topped with a maddening holiday season, but, finally, 2005 is on its last legs.

New Year's Resolutions

A reference guide

Once the partying is done and the hangovers cured, the guilt starts to set in. The daunting realization that it's the beginning of another yeara year you promised to make better than the last. To make this compact, clip-out New Year's Resolutions Guide as productive as possible, here's a bit of preliminary advice.

1) Your resolution should be something you have control over. Don't resolve to win the lottery. That's a wish, not a resolution.

2) Tell yourself you can accomplish your goal. It may sound silly, but part of doing something is believing you can do it.

3) Don't be afraid to ask for help. You are not alone in your battle. Find support groups, talk to your loved ones and seek out others with the same goals.

All right, here's a random, obviously incomplete list of organizations you might consider contacting to help make 2006 a successful new year.

Party Games

Your antidote to a dull New Year's Eve

Party games are fun for moderately sized groups, and are a good way to integrate and transform regular old drinking, eating, conversation and funny hats into end-of-the-year entertainment. Most of these games are—or are derived from—old parlor games and were attained from my new favorite website, wikipedia.org (thanks, wikipedia!). Happy New Year and watch out for falling ammunition.
