The screen in my building's elevator, which delivers ads to an until now untargeted, yet captive audience (god forbid I spend a full minute of my day not staring at some type of monitor), informed me of the following on my ride this afternoon:

In Scotland, it is believed to be good luck if a tall, dark, and handsome man enters your home on the first day of the new year.

I'm so glad I was made aware of this curious old wive's tale. I must ask, however, when and in what country is it ever NOT good luck if a tall, dark, and handsome man shows up knocking at your abode? I'm just asking.

Well, another year is upon us, and that means it's resolution time. I'll go ahead and say that one of mine is to lose weight. As for one I'm more likely to keep, how about I take a crack at that world peace thing y'all have been talking about? ;)

Happy New Year, everyone! Good luck with your own resolutions. :)

Happy New Year sweety. I'm sure your year will be a great one. I hope everything is going well for you. And if you need a tall, dark, *ahem* handsome man to walk into your apartment...just get me a plane ticket and I'll be on over. ;-) Derek
