Plaid Shirtdress and New Year's Eve

I've never been good at making toasts or being counted on for encouraging words of wisdom when it mattered - I'm much too uncoordinated for that. So I'll leave the "right" words for wishing you all a Happy New Year to the harbingers of wisdom themselves - author Neil Gaiman and my man, Charlie Brown:

I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes. Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You're doing things you've never done before, and more importantly, you're Doing Something. So that's my wish for you, and all of us, and my wish for myself. Make New Mistakes. Make glorious, amazing mistakes. Make mistakes nobody's ever made before. Don't freeze, don't stop, don't worry that it isn't good enough, or it isn't perfect, whatever it is: art, or love, or work or family or life. Whatever it is you're scared of doing, Do it. Make your mistakes, next year and forever.
- Neil Gaiman

Peppermint Patty: What you do think, Chuck, would be good rules for living in the New Year?
Charlie Brown: Keep the ball low, don't leave your crayons in the sun, use dental floss every day, don't spill the shoe polish, always knock before entering, don't let the ants get in the sugar, never volunteer to be a program chairman, always get your first serve in, and feed your dog whenever he's hungry.  
- Happy New Year, Charlie Brown
