The definition of resolute

It's that time of year when, of course, people make entirely doomed efforts to change their lifestyle/diet/health/weight, whatever it is, with the poorly-named New Year's resolution. I never, ever make them precisely because, if you were genuinely resolute about making a change to your life, the date is entirely irrelevant. Why should Friday becoming Saturday, as New Year falls this year, make it any more likely that you'll give up smoking than Friday becoming Saturday did on October 8th/9th, for example?

So, while I've never understood why people celebrate New Year quite so vigorously, I hope you all do so unencumbered by these pointless and futile gestures and enjoy it guilt-free.
