[+/-] New Years Resolutions - woohoo

So many resolutions this year. As with my weight loss efforts, I've figured that making my resolutions public knowledge will help me garner support from my friends, while providing incentive not to look like a complete tosser if I don't go through with it, so here is the list (items struck through are complete) (partially stolen from Psychomuffin, since she is uber-organised, and can think of all these nifty things):
