Dave!I don't generally make New Years resolutions, because I never know where my head will be at ten minutes from now. I could suddenly decide to shave my head and become a porn star or something.

The only goal I really set for myself is to blog every day, but I do that anyway.

So I decided that I should take a good hard look at myself and come up with five things that I can commit to doing in the new year.

DAVETOON: Bad Monkey Celebrating 2009

My New Years Resolutions for 2009...

  • Try a Pop-Tart flavor I've never had before.
  • Travel somewhere I've never been before.
  • Visit a Hard Rock Cafe I haven't seen before.
  • Drink a beer I've never drank before.
  • Buy another Macintosh computer.

Meh. I'll probably have all that done within a month. Those are not very far-reaching resolutions.


My New Years Resolutions for 2010...

  • Star in my own television show.
  • Become a billionaire.
  • Host a "Girls Gone Wild" video.
  • Cure the common cold.
  • Walk on the moon.

Now there's some resolutions!

    Two goals in one = become a billionaire porn star!
    Porn is a recession proof industry.

  2. eric says:

    if you want a little bit of a challenge, you could always consider solving the whole gaza crisis. that one might take ya more than a month. of course, i’m sure if you add it to your 2010 list it will still need doing at that time.

  3. please, please cure the common cold THIS year!!

  4. B.E. Earl says:

    If you need any suggestions on the beer front, I can hook a brutha up. Plus my lady works as a salesperson for a large craft beer distributor, so she’s always recommending something unique for me.

  5. I don’t think becoming a porn star would be a good choice right now. I hear they are having money trouble just like every other industry right now.

  6. Avitable says:

    Have you tried the strawberry milkshake flavor of Pop Tarts? They’re pretty damn good.

  7. NYCWD says:

    When your ready for 2010 let me know.

    I know a good GGW cameraman.

  8. A Lewis says:

    I’d say you’d better get to work on 2010 pretty damned quickly. You’re going to be very busy. Except for the Girls Gone Wild part….that’ll be easy.

  9. Darci says:

    I have been waiting for a 2009 monkey/Dave…thanks for the iPhone wallpaper

  10. Whitenoise says:

    Wow, after that I feel like I’m just not aiming high enough… 😉

  11. Ren says:

    Maybe you should make a resolution to improve your goal setting. Seems like you only have the extremes of too easy or too difficult.

  12. Nicole says:

    Dave, have you ever tried Vailima? It is a great, original Samoan beer. And it’s cheap! Of course I was a poor twenty-something back when I lived there so I guess cheap equaled great. But it’s still worth a try if you can find it Stateside!

  13. Jeff says:

    What happened to the “become a porn star” resolution? 2011?

  14. Sybil Law says:

    I love a man with goals! Esp. if he’s a billionaire. Aw, who am I kidding?! I just love you- for making me smile. You cure the cold, though – and I’ll be your slave. 🙂

  15. whall says:

    I resolve to beg money from billionaire Dave, who made his money starring in a GGW video, and the pivotal episode (100th monkey time) that launched the Dave craze was the one where he accidentally stumbled on the cure for the common cold (lavish amounts of butter). I’ll just beg for enough money to join him on his self-financed trip to the moon.

  16. Naomi says:

    If you host a Girls Gone Wild on the moon, it will probably make you a billionaire–networks can run it late at night and then you’d only have to worry about the common cold cure to complete the set…

  17. I figure if you get enough of ladies us drunk at TequilaCon, just film us “Bloggers Gone Wild!” and make some dough.

    Oh, wait. I meant “ladies and Avitable.”

  18. Immediately I thought to myself… where on earth has Dave NEVER been to??? And WHICH hard rock cafe have you yet visited? The beer… wow – you have a list of kinds of beer you’ve tasted? The mac — you’re going to do that anyway, right?

    I would love to see a Dave’s monkies gone wild… 😛

    happy new year!
