What New Year's resolutions are people making?

We asked a few Tucsonans to share

My resolutions are the following (in no particular order): to conquer Mount Wrightson (with my new puppy!); to finally learn to make purogi, my family's traditional Polish Christmas Eve dinner; to make it to Oregon wine country and indulge in the lovely pinot noir that I keep reading (and dreaming) about!

For 2007, I am resolved to pursuing the life of my cats: sleep all day, play all night, purr when petted and demand high-quality food. I will learn to play "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" on my musical saw and reduce my 11 screen names down to one. Being a realist, that is about all I can hope for!

Here are a few resolutions I have for 2007: Finally record my CD, learn to speak Spanish, work less and earn more, travel abroad, make a difference.

My New Year's resolutions for 2007 are to get my World Harmony: Can It Happen? TV program (which is dedicated to creating more human harmony and peace in our world) on the radio, too; to lose weight; and to become a more effective reader.

I know I personally resolve to lose another five pounds. My original resolution was to initiate a torrid affair with Anderson Cooper, but the former seems more likely at this point.
