2009 NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTIONS, REVEALED

Happy New Year, friends! I hope you had a great New Year’s Eve. New Year’s Eve tends to be one of those events that has a HUGE build up, but actually turns out to be a.) freezing cold and b.) best summarized like this:



Mine New Year’s Eve was very enjoyable . . . and I met a BLACKSMITH! A female BLACKSMITH! (I’m in England right now, which explains it. This would never happen in New York. No one has a FORGE in the city.) It was pretty excellent. So we had champagne and we talked about tools. I own a toolbox, but there’s nothing very exciting in it. Even my drill is tiny and pink and powered by 4 AA batteries.

The blacksmith told me about all sorts of wonderful things, and after we were done, I had resolution number one all ready to go . . .

#1 Get chainsaw


While her tales of the power hammer were pretty great, I have decided I need a chainsaw more than I need anything else in 2009. You may be wondering what I am going to do with a chainsaw in the middle of New York City. To which I would reply, “What CAN’T I do with a chainsaw in the middle of New York City?!”

I feel that once I have my chainsaw, everything else will be a little bit easier. Meetings will go more smoothly. I will get better service. Traffic will move faster. The answer is, and always has been: chainsaw.

#2 Fix economy

2008 will go down in history as the year that all the money broke—the hangover of an orgy of greed, incompetence, deregulation, and flat-out stupidity. We all watched in amazement as money simply . . . melted. We were reminded what a flimsy concept money is in the first place.

Anyway, SOMEONE has to do something. I first thought that maybe Fred and Sharon could help:



But if you want something done right, you can only do it yourself. So that’s on my list. And since I’ll have a chainsaw, I figure this can’t be too hard. I'll budget a week for that.

#3 Finish repairs on the Large Hadron Collider, the world’s largest and highest-energy particle accelerator

As you probably have guessed, I am a driving force behind the construction of the 17 mile supercollider in Switzerland. My original concept was to have all of the members of Abba collide at 99.9999% the speed of light, almost certainly producing a song greater than Dancing Queen.

My idea was then hijacked by a bunch of scientists, who want to produce a Higgs boson, some kind of fancy particle, which will essentially recreate the conditions that were present less than a billionth of a second after the Big Bang. Also, it may possibly produce some small black holes and something called strangelets, which are either dark matter particles or the title of a new album by 80s emo princes, The Smiths.

Obviously, my idea is better.

So we’re sitting there, eating some chocolate and cheese, and I say, “Listen guys, what does the world need more? Proof of the Standard Model, or Abba’s first single since 1983?” And the scientists nodded. One of them started humming “Waterloo,” which I took as a good sign. But then they went right back to talking about spinning their particles.

Anyway, the thing broke, which buys me a bit more time to pitch my idea again. Failing that, I am simply going to break into the place once we get it fixed, brining all four members of Abba with me. I am certain that Benny, Bjorn, Anna-Frid, and Agantha will willingly be spun around 17 miles of circular tunnel, 570 feet below Geneva, at 99.9999% the speed of light. Seriously, they will be going so fast, they won’t even notice the collision. I postulate that we will create a DISCO SUPERNOVA, or possibly a new, disco ball-shaped planet.

#4 Find home for the Abba Museum

God, what DIDN’T break in 2008? In perhaps what was the most devastating blow, plans for the Abba Museum in Stockholm went completely haywire. The museum lost its location, and now there is NO SCHEDULED DATE for its opening. HORROR.

On the bright side, this frees up some time for Abba to get spun around the supercollider. On the downside, WHERE ARE WE SUPPOSED TO GO TO SEE THE KARATE OUTFITS FROM THE 1976 WORLD TOUR? Where can I go to MEET MY PEOPLE, fellow lovers of Sweden’s greatest musicians? No, a sing-a-long screening of Mamma Mia is not enough. We need a temple.

I have written to the museum keepers to let them know that they are welcome to store the collection in my house in the meantime, and that I will allow people in seven days a week. They haven’t replied yet, but I figure this is because they are busy putting everything into boxes to send to me.

#5 Bring back Cookie O’Puss

When I was a tiny mj, the ice cream chain Carvel used to have a series of ice cream cakes, which they would relentlessly pimp on our local television stations. The Carvel ice cream cake family included Fudgie the Whale, the Tie Cake, and C.P. (the “celestial person”), which was some kind of alien shaped like a light bulb with an ice cream cone for a nose. None of this made a lot of sense, even to a five year old who didn’t care what it was as long as it was MADE OF ICE CREAM. Carvel could have sold cakes in the shape of giant rats, or guillotines, or Paul Revere’s etching of the Boston Massacre, and I wouldn’t have cared. As long as they all had that delicious vein of chocolate crumble between two flavors of soft serve, I would eat it.

But even I remember slightly questioning Cookie O’Puss. Which was especially odd, because he was GREEN, which suggested a high probably of MINT ice cream, which is my lifelong favorite. Cookie O’Puss was the friend of C.P., the alien with the ice cream cone for a nose. That he was an Irish alien with a slight Brooklyn accent made it all the stranger.



Cookie O’Puss made me nervous. But then LOTS of things made me nervous when I was four years old. Kiss dolls. The band Queen. Teenage boys who talked about dragons. That fourth grade girl in my cab who tormented my friend.

I should explain that I went to Kindergarten in a cab every day. This was because there were only four people in my area going to my school, so the district thought it would be more cost-effective to hire out a station wagon from the local cab company. The local cab company was staffed entirely by a crew of burned out Hell’s Angels that hung out at a place called Phil’s, which was essentially a biker bar.

So on the first day of Kindergarten, my mother put me, her tiny mj, into a maroon station wagon driven by an ENORMOUS HELL'S ANGEL named Mr. Jimbo. Years later she confessed the terror that she felt on that first day . . . but Mr. Jimbo liked kids, and he drove well, so she grew to accept it, and to like it. It turns out that large, bearded, tattooed, leather-vested bikers are EXACTLY who you want shepherding your tiny children. No one messes with Mr. Jimbo or his little charges.

Anyway, there was this girl named Danielle who was, as I remember it, Satan’s very own spider monkey, and her #1 occupation was tormenting people smaller than her. I was a very meek child, but things must have built to a head. She was bothering us Kindergarteners relentlessly one day and I just went POW with my enormous lunchbox. (Which was plastic, and heavy, and had a pair of shoes in it, because I had to change my shoes once I got to school for some reason. The shoes fit perfectly into the place where the thermos was supposed to go, so every single day of Kindergarten, I got: "What are you having for lunch, Maureen? SHOES?” At first, this made me very upset, but after the first three months or so, I started to reply, “YES. I AM HAVING SHOES FOR LUNCH.” This is when I learned that Kindergarteners do not excel at multiple rounds of verbal jousting, and generally had no idea where to go from there. They might manage a “Ew, gross.” But by that point, the barb had lost its sting, and they knew it.)

Anyway, Danielle was perpetrating some form of evil on my friend, and I was just mad as hell and couldn’t take it anymore, and down came the lunchbox. This shocked EVERYONE, such was my gentle and meek nature. In fact, I didn’t even get in trouble, because my teacher said, “If Maureen hit her with a lunchbox, it must have been pretty bad.”

Which was SCORE FOR ME, except we then found out that Danielle had recently had brain surgery.

We kind of got along after that, but it was a delicate détente. She gave me a weird looking elephant she’d made of masking tape, which also made me nervous, because it was so freaky looking. I hid it in a drawer, because I was too afraid of it to get rid of it.

Anyway, Cookie O’Puss was just one item on a long list of concerns. But I still WANTED ONE. And I think 2009 is the year they should come back.

#6 Mo Better Blogs


More blogs. More stuff. All the time. 2009 is the year I plan to make you truly sick of me.

#7 Write some books

Which will include Suite Scarlett three, and A BOOK I CAN'T TELL YOU ABOUT YET.

This list is sort of rough, and I’d like to improve on it. So if you have any ideas, please let me know.

And now, let me give out a SIGNED BOOK to a random commenter from the last post. And that random commenter is Cat, who spread Cheer by volunteering at a homeless shelter over the holidays. Cat, send me your address!

For now, that is the end of the book giveaway. And I say FOR NOW, because there will ALWAYS be times in the future that I give away some books. You never know when it can happen.

I think that finding a location for the ABBA museum should be your top priority this year.
I mean, the house is JUST STADING THERE. The extra building they had started is just a bunch of steel squares at the moment.
It's pretty sad.
They should just keep doing what they started with and build us that museum!!
It would really brighten up the sad, sad, SAD place that lies between Londonviadukten and Slussen.

1-Pink Vespas and chainsaws are the world's future.
2-I shall do anything I can to help you fix the economy. Me helping basically consists of prank calling Fred and Sharon over and over and over and over again.
3-I will help you!That includes rounding up Abba,forcing them to watch Mamma Mia over and over again until they're sick of their own songs, but they will NEVER get sick of them because they're ABBA! so that's when the spinning will start. WHY?! you may ask. BECAUSE, I will answer; they will be distracted. DUHH.
4-I think a little island in Greece should do it. Yes, Abba was Swedish. But Mamma Mia basis location was"the little island" in Greece...is it possible there is land co-owned by Sweden and Greece? If not there WILL be and then THAT is where the Abba Museum will build itself in it wonderfulness.
5-One phrase/question/sentence/fragment/inquistion.
WHAT is better then ice cream from Ireland from New York from Outer Space made by Carvel?
6- That's what I thought. NOTHING.
7-I think there needs to be a revision of the Things MJ is aScared OF List. Apparently there needs to be separate chapter or books even of the different age groups of scared/creeped out MJ/tiny mj.MR.JIMBO is my new favorite person excluding you by the way.
8-Duh. Mo Better Blogs will not only provide us with everlasting entertainment and the pride in the backs of our minds. But also...well never mind. That's what it will do. :} Pride? you ask. Why? You question. Pride,I say,because you think we'll get sick of you and your blogginess. Au Contraire, mon ami! We shall never get sick of you, hence the pride of,..well yeah. Hence the Pride!
9-YOU! mon ami, are the Master of Suspense. Suite Scarlett TRES when TWO isn't even out yet. Feisty. and something you CANT talk about. I disagree. You coullllllllllllllld.

First off, my CAPTCHA code for this comment is "growl." I think that is awesome.

Second, MY BRAIN BROKE. A song better than Dancing Queen? This just does not compute. But if anyone can do it, you can. I am trusting ABBA with you. BUT PLEASE DO NOT BREAK THEM WHEN YOU COLLIDE THEM. Please. Or I will be sad. And please do not let J.K. get a hold of their stuff next time she sneaks into your apartment.

Third, I was very amused at the kindergarten!mj tangent.

Fourth, I think you skipped a Very Important Resolution. FREE ALAN RICKMAN! He's not getting out of there on his own.

Fabulous resolutions. I totally agree about the chainsaw, by the way. Actually, you could probably fix the ABBA museum fiasco that way - You: "Give me ABBA sequin suits. Now." Them: "Um, but actually we need those -" You: "Bzzt." *waves chainsaw about threateningly* Them: "Oh my, I just realized that not only do I need to give you those ABBA sequin suits, but also I need to give you a substantial amount of money. Here. Go away. Please."
See? And then you could use that money (of an undetermined value) to fix the economy! Piece of cake really!

Maureen, have you considered running for government office?
Seriously. When a chainsaw is first on your list, it's time to start running for governor.
(I say this NOT as a slam on our nation's varied and occasionally troubled governors. It's what I tell my mother every time she solves our outlandish landscape issues single-handedly, with a chainsaw. The chainsaw is an art form.)

Will chainsaws save us from the zombies, though?

A chainsaw will be very useful when the zombie apocalypse comes in 2012, and then when it runs out of gas you can take that pretty pink screwdriver and AIM FOR THE HEAD. :P

While these are all fantastic resolutions, Ms. Maureen, I'm still disappointed in your failure to express support for Bill Nighy in my pursuit to get him to pursue a position as eleventh Doctor. This is quite possibly the most important issue of today - more important than the economy, or Obama becoming president, or the world failing - and I think your failure to recognize it is extremely discouraging.

These really are quite lovely resolutions. And that Kindergarten story beats every single other kindergarten story I've ever heard. Mr. Jimbo is my hero.

I am slightly confused though. You speak of being frightened of the band Queen as a tiny mj. Does this fear continue on in your grown-up mj mind? Hmmm...I confess this quite perturbs me, though I cannot explain why.

Oh, and Happy New Year!

Hello Maureen,

You may not know this, but ABBA were more successful in Australia than anywhere. After all, ABBA: The Movie was filmed here! We Aussies were treated to an hour-long ABBA special on TV on New Year's Eve with an exclusive interview with Bjorn, so the love affair continues. And me, I'm just trying to figure out a way to put my ABBA scrapbook up online to show of to fellow fans.
Happy new year!

My resolution this year is, before I do anything, I am going to think "What would Tyra do?"
It was just my friend Steve's birthday. I was thinking about what present to get him, when I heard on E!, on some year in review show, that for Miley Cyrus's 16th birthday, Tyra gave her a picture of Tyra as a 16 year old. This sounded like a good plan. So I gave Steve, who just turned 26, a framed picture of Tyra when she was 26. I think this way of thought will get me far in 2009.

The Kindergarten story really made me laugh, when I was in kindergarten I was quite and stayed to myself. My teacher told my mother that I needed to be taken out of school and put away for being to quiet. When my mother yelled at her my teacher gave up on that and let me be quiet.

Each table in our classroom was a color marked by a piece of paper masking tapped to the table. Everybody was put at a table. Each table would be at a different station at different times and they would shift by color. My favorite color was purple and that's the table I really wanted to be at.

My Teacher put me at the GRAY table. Alone. Gray the dullest color of them all. Gray. Everybody picked on me for it until she felt bad and put the girl who hated me at the table with me and the boy who was always at the principal's office.

I think lunch box hitting must just seem like the ULTIMATE INSULT in elementary school because I remember being on the bus and finally getting so irked at someone (I think they called be short?) that I smacked him with my lunchbox and it was like THIS EPIC GASP-FEST. Except that he only found this hilarious. I think it would've helped if I had your chainsaw with me. Chainsaws make everything better. (:

Ha, this is a late comment - but I'm so happy, Maureen, that you've updated your blog of awesomeness!

Envious of you, I am, that you got to spent your New Year's Eve and Day in England - but mine weren't bad, either, I have to say. That video of endless liquor immediately spurred the idea to post said video on the MySpace page of a certain friend of mine who has pledged to get me drunk (and has not yet succeeded). A pledge she repeated on New Year's Eve, of course.

But that New Year's Eve was spent completely sober. We took an expedition to our local cinema, and started to watch The Spirit. This movie was relatively slow and cheesy, but did have a few deliciously weird parts (such as a small head attached to a foot bouncing around in front of Samuel L. Jackson). Just as I was starting to get into the plot a leetle bit, the rest of the group decided to give up and get a refund.

Out in the parking lot, we realized that the getaway car had a flat. So the passage into the California New Year was spent standing in the freezing cold, watching a tire change done by our aspiring mechanic friend.

But it was incredibly AWESOME, because behind the mall are loads of suburbs, which usually repulse me but tonight were ringing true with endless shouting, car horn honking, trumpet blaring, and firework popping. I heard way more in that parking lot than I ever had from my house. It was fantastical.

ABBA will conquer 2009, you can be sure.
