New Year resolutions in Canberra

By johnboy - 31 December 2012 26

OK guys, knock yourselves out in the comments with your own resolutions, or those you’d like for others (not me or RiotACT as I’ll take pleasure in deleting those).

Or just knock yourselves out with festive spirit.

What’s Your opinion?

I intend to visit the Oaks Estate bottle shop. And also to try and be more tolerant. And to bench press lots more. Like tonnes.

Happy new year to everyone, including our moderator, without whom…

I’d like to text less while tailgating with my fog lights on at midday, it just makes it impossible to not use the indicator and line up the cyclist at the same time.

I was thinking of starting a mobile mechanic service and permanently parking on the main intersection near Kambah Village. Seems to be an inordinate number of people who suffer from stuck accelerator cables in the area, and I reckon I could make some tasty coin. Could probably get a fleet in going in no time and expand through Belconnen, Charnwood, Queanbeyan, etc.

For a variety of reasons including work pressure and family illness I haven’t had much time to myself this year.

So in 2013, I’m going to play my guitars more. “Hanging Around” by The Stranglers is the first song for the new year, followed by some tasty blues. I’m going to read more, starting with “Undertones of War” by Edmund Blunden, which I’ve been meaning to read since I joined the Army. And I’m going to do more bushwalking, because there’s nothing like being in a place with no traffic noise in the background.

Above all, I’m going to spend more time doing good blokey things with my sons, who could do with a bit more attention from their dad.

I’d like to wish all Rioters a safe and prosperous 2013 doing things that bring you pleasure in the company of people you enjoy being with. And Hats Off to JB and the crew for keeping this show rolling along. I really enjoy coming here every day. :-)

Nice work :)

A happy new year to you, all other RA regulars/lurkers, johnboy and the rest of the crew involved in keeping this place running.

In spite of being out of Canberra for almost 4 years, I still visit here regularly, and have done since 2005 or so (yikes!) – there’s no other site like it. Kudos to everyone involved :)

I’ll be staying with my 2009 New Year Resolution, to get fit and be as muscly as possible. I never gave it up and have stuck with it since then. Don’t listen to the media reports saying most resolutions are broken within a few weeks. It is easy to stick with one if it is achievable and you have a firm commitment to better yourself.

To make my fame and fortune after being featured in the RiotACT “parking style” articles.

I’m going to try to remember to write “2013”.

Enjoy the next orbit, Rioters.

Give up the lung-busters, get rid of the fags, and stop smoking. And do it all again, and again, and again.

So right you lot – get ready for some seriously peeved posts!

Good luck, it’s the best thing you’ll ever do.

I recommend cold turkey, I tried (and failed) to quit with ‘assistants’ like patches/gum half a dozen times and found cold turkey (and a month long stint of nasty bronchitis) the best way to make it a permanent change.
