"These aren't the resolutions you're looking for."*

The beautiful BB has come up with a brilliant idea on her blog. She's made a quote from Batman her New Year's resolution. It was 'It's not who I am underneath, but what I do that defines me.'
It's from 2005's Batman Begins. This is fantastic. I'm wracking my brains thinking of a similar superhero-based resolution for myself. There's 'With great power comes great responsibility', which is Spider-Man, of course, but I dismissed it as it's not really a resolution, as true as it is. There's Dredd's 'I am the law!!' which can be a resolution, but I'm not the law, not even in my own house. There's also Doctor Robert Bruce Banner's 'Hulk Smash!' which does fit into my philosophy, but my name's not Hulk. 'Mick Smash!' doesn't have the same ring, it just sounds like a brand of instant mashed potato you'd see in Lidl. The one I nearly considered was 'One more drinksh not gonna hurt, ishit?' from Iron Man, but in the end, as unoriginal as I am, I also plumped for Batman. It's this quote, from the 1966 TV show, with Adam West:

It sums me right up, that does.

That's also my new catchphrase.

How spooky.

Well, your resolution clearly wins as the biggest mindfuck. And I greatly enjoyed the flattery, narcissism is one of my strong points, though ;-)

Do you still consider it flattery when you realise I'm not wearing my glasses and my vision is all blurry?

I care more for the flattery of my ideas than my appearance :-)

It's not who I am underneath, but what I do that defines me.

And what I do is dress in leather, jump off roofs and punch people briskly and repeatedly in the face.
