Eve of my 57th birthday.

During the last 24 hours sefton and I have written a really interesting (I think) story on the Morning Electroshock forum over at site.

We seem to have similar mentalities albeit different styles when it comes to writing and we have put some very exciting prose together online. Never met the guy face to face but we once spoke on the phone for 20 minutes.

My birthday tomorrow. I'm fine right now but tomorrow I'll be old! 57. What of that? Dunno. It's just a number, factors of 1, 3, 19, 57, not even prime. I'm planning to dine out at a restaurant that offers a free entrée for the B'day Boy and later go to Rosters where they donate chicken wings equal to the number of years you have managed to remain upright and breathing.

I'll try to remain sober as well.

2009 is a new year

I have in the past made resolutions, goals really, things I want to do, not so much the, "I want to be a better person" sort of thing.

I have set myself a goal of finding an agent to present my books to publisher's for several years and haven't done a thing about it yet. I won't waste time with soul-searching, but, at risk of annoying friends who may roll their eyes at seeing tnis one again, I will once more set that goal.

1. Get a literary agent.
2. Finish up Smiling Buddha, the novel I began in 2002 after returning from Taiwan.
3. Develop an online source of income, whether it be eBay or and MLM or an affiliate.
4. Be gone from Canada for next winter. heh.
5. Have a personal best time at Ironman Canada again this August 30th.
6. Finish the 50 day CORE challenge on Feb 13th with 500 pts or more.

I may add to this but that is good for a start
