You're reading: What are your New Year's resolutions?
on social media

The majority of responses to the Readers Poll question of the week came from Ukrainians. Clearly that means all those ex-pats who’ve been leaving town are not only spending the holidays in the bosoms of the families but are also consciously avoiding having their oft-soon-broken resolutions published in print.

In contrast, a number of readers were not the least bit shy about airing their dirty laundry, and bad habits, in public. Answers were diverse, but the majority opted for the usual (and all-too-necessary) health-related resolutions. “Quit smoking” is probably the most beloved of all self-deceptive promises everywhere, and it duly put in an appearance in the Post poll. One woman wrote of, “the usual three: exercise, diet and spend more time with the family” and another reader covered all the angles by resolving, “to leave behind all the harmful habits I have” while “staying healthy and cheerful.” Now there’s a challenge.

So, apparently, is to “start going to the theater instead of strip bars,” for one gentleman – who should maybe take baby steps and start with a couple of floor shows at Joss. Of course if he fulfills his other resolution to “rent an apartment and move there with my girlfriend,” he’ll likely have some moral support fulfilling the first one.
