New Year's Resolution Number 27:

New Year's Resolution Number 27: Write something for the jar at least once each week - even if it's only an empty promise about writing more next week.

I'll keep this one though.

I kept one from last year - which may be a first. A cigarette didn't touch my lips all year. Well, no, that's not entirely true. On July 10th I lit one for a friend as he drove us to the golf club. I held the smoke in my mouth for a lingering second, but, like Bill Clinton, I did not have sexual relations with that woman... or something.

On a completely unrelated topic - on the Trivial Pursuit website, you can register to play for cash. However, one of the conditions - 2.1(a) - stipulates that you must "be a natural person, at least 18 years old, who is assigned to the e-mail address submitted on your account registration form"

No definition of "natural person" is provided, but I decided not to register in case I proved to be too tense.
