And so we're told this is the golden age

It's 2007. Which would be a terrific year for a new James Bond film, were it not for the fact that one just came out in 2006.

Just another reminder that most of the world doesn't pay attention to the minute details.

I'm not one for making New Year's resolutions, mostly because I know myself well enough to recognize that I wouldn't keep them if I made them, then I'd get down on myself for making commitments to myself that I didn't honor.

Instead, I try to use themes. For 2007, my theme will be "stop thinking, and act." There are a number of things I've been thinking about doing for some time, but haven't applied much definitive action toward accomplishing them. (I have an annoying tendency toward paralysis by analysis. Sometimes, I'm my own worst supervillain.) This year, I'll make a concerted effort to break through the logjam, in at least one or two areas of my life.

I hope that whatever your approach to the coming year may be, it works out the way that you envision.

And I hope we're all here to talk about how it went, next January first. Dick Clark, too. Even if we won't always understand what the heck he's saying.

Oh, by the way...
I am 85% Spider-Man.
I am intelligent, witty, a bit geeky, and have great power and responsibility.

At least, that's what this quiz says.

Paralysis by analysis. I like that. Wait, that came out wrong. I don't in fact, like paralysis by analysis. I just like the way you put it.

Oh and a 007 in 2007. Why didn't they think of that?!

Janet totally stole my comment while I was taking the time to think about what to write. ;) I too suffer from ParalAnalysis.

Oh and I'm 95% Superman and 60% Spider-man, though I knew where it was headed as I answered the questions.

And maybe they better step up filming on Bond 22(Risico?). To a more obscure degree, I was also disappointed that Transformers is coming out in 2007, when the original animated movie from 1986 was set in the year 2005. A 2005 release would have pleased the diehard fanboys, plus it's always funny to see how the future is depicted when we actually reach a certain date. 2005 was nowhere near as hi-tech as it was depicted back then.

I would have even settled for 2006 as the 20th anniversary though, and at least the movie was rereleased on a special edition DVD.

You're right, most of the world doesn't pay attention to the minute details.
