my 2010 readolutions: updated

Umm, no, actually, I don’t have any readolutions for 2010.

Why? A) setting myself up for further failure just seems so masochistic, b) the few issues I have are minuscule in the face of my overall awesomeness and c) perfection is so friggin’ boring.

Instead, I have 10 bloggy type aims for 2010, which, I’m sure you’ll soon agree, are much more suited to me.

Aim #1 – Read. A lot. Rant about it. A lot.

Aim #2 – Continue with the tasting-a-month thing up to the point just before it completely pisses me off.

Aim #3 – Embrace my randomness. It is the stuff of epics.

Aim #4 – Try not to become too obsessed with my new photoshop software as well as send said rude pictures to people at their work. *Sorry KC!* *BTW, that doesn’t count cos it’s still 2009.*

Aim #5 – Mock people, in particular authors. FYI, apparently you’ve not really made it on the reading interwebz until you’ve become the subject of hate mail. Needless to say that I’m pretty disappointed it hasn’t happened to me yet – hmpf! to those Fanyons who call themselves… err… Fanyons… – so obviously I need to try harder.

Aim #6 – Avoid Attempt to avoid losing hours going through Sarah’s pron blog.

Aim #7 – Get new minions since the old ones have utterly failed me:

Aim #8 – Over a 24 hour period, create a Twitter account, start a wankfest and then ninja flash out of there.

Aim #9 – Convince more authors that it is perfectly legitimate promo to be involved in my super fun ‘choose your own m/m story’ program. *Already suckered someone into doing a Valentine’s Day short for us. Mwahahahaha!*

Aim #10 – And always, always serve up cookies to my virtual peeps:

Happy New Year, everyone, and good reading to you in 2010! 🙂

ETA: Some wacked loser, who lives on the wrong side of the river in Perth, just sent me my first hate mail.

Besides being the only person in the world to have achieved a 2010 aim before the year has even started – yep, that’s how awesome I am -, I told that author he needs to shut the hell up, stop writing historical genre crap and give me my m/m steampunk.

I’m pretty sure we’re headed towards a wankfest. Fingers crossed.

    I like your bloggy type aims, and look forward to you achieving them in 2010. 🙂

  2. nichem says:

    Ooh, good blog aims. Well, except the new minions thing. *grumble*

    Looking forward to the tastes and the cookies and the randomness and the rants and the Valentine's Day short.

    And thanks for the link to Sarah's pron blog. *fans self* Not sure why you'd want to avoid that– seems like a good way to spend a few hours to me.

  3. GASP! As on of your minions, I take offense to this. Why I never!!

    *Grabs all of Kris's cookies and hides them until she apologizes*

  4. Chris says:

    Did you ask Kate Perry via her blog who the cover model was? Just an idea…

    Most excellent aim for 2010. I'm pretty sure you can achieve all of them, albeit maybe not #4. 😉

  5. Great blog goals!!! i love randomness and cookies! oh yeshhh the delish cookies!

    Happy 2010 New Year!!!

  6. Chris says:

    Damn. That link to Sarah's pron blog? Major dangerous time suckage alert!

  7. K. Z. Snow says:

    In other words, not a damned thing is going to change around here.

    I'll get back to you on whether that's good or bad.

    (I'm not ambivalent about the cookie, though — really nice!)

  8. Tam says:

    Holy shit, you and I are sharing cookies now. We are of the hive mind. Along with TA Chase it appears since I stole said cookie from him.

    I think you'll be a great success this year my dear. I'll create a new hotmail and send you a hate-mail or two just to make your day.

  9. MsM says:

    Good luck with your aims! Sorry you have shitty minions. LOL


    MsM <--bad bad minion.

  10. Ingrid says:

    KZ, I have to agree with you. That does sounds the same like this year

  11. Jenre says:

    Do you know what? Sod the resolutions! As long as you're here doing your thing, I'm happy.

    Keep it up girl. I know it's been a tough year for you but we're all behind you, even if we do fail as your personal minions :).

  12. Kris says:

    Lesley, well, you know it'll be tough, but I'll do my darnedest. 😉

    Richelle, you think I should give you all one last shot?? Hmmm, maybe.

    “And thanks for the link to Sarah's pron blog.”

    You know me, mate. I'm all about sharing. 🙂

    Katiebabs chook: If you were really a minion you would help racy and Tish complete their mission. Just sayin'.

  13. Kris says:

    Chris, did you miss the part where the minions were meant to do it or what?! Also, I have no idea why you say that about my #4 aim.

    “Damn. That link to Sarah's pron blog? Major dangerous time suckage alert!”

    Told ya so.

    Claire: ” i love randomness and cookies!”

    Phew! 😉 Happy New Year to you too, hun, and may 2010 bring you many, many book boyfriends. *g*

    KZ: Meanie. You can be so rude to me sometimes. *adds KZ to list of authors to mock* *oh wait she's already there* *three times*

  14. Kris says:

    Tam, my twin. 🙂

    “I'll create a new hotmail and send you a hate-mail or two just to make your day.”

    Awww, you really do luff me. *sniffles*

    MsM, if you were really sorry you'd do something about it. Hmpf.

    Ingrid: *pouts*

    Jen, thanks, hun. I'm really hoping 2010 is better.

    God knows I'm not sure how I would've got through this year without you all playing with me and supporting me during the year. It would've been majorly sucky so thanks to all of you!

  15. Whew, glad I'm not a minion. And yes, keep serving cookies, please!

    And what is this about mocking authors? If you mock authors, how do you expect them to write chews ur own for you? Do you really want hate mail that much? Why not mock people who aren't authors? People like, reviewers, say. Or bloggers? Or random Canadians? I see an untapped resource there, I'm sure. *runs quickly through kitchen door and down street*

  16. Tam says:

    You better run Wren. Random Canadians. Phhhttthhhhpppp 😛

  17. Kris says:


    1. “Whew, glad I'm not a minion.” What the hell do you mean you aren't a minion?!

    2. “If you mock authors, how do you expect them to write chews ur own for you?” Too late to back out now, mate. *hehehe*

    3. “Do you really want hate mail that much?” Is it really too much to ask to get just one piece of hate mail??

    4. “Why not mock people who aren't authors? People like, reviewers, say. Or bloggers? Or random Canadians?” Cos it get's boring taking the piss out of Tam and Jen all the time. Plus they say variety is the spice of life. *beams*

  18. sorry *pants* can't talk now *pants* I'm running!

  19. ohh… does that mean we can make fun of Aussies?

  20. Kris says:

    “ohh… does that mean we can make fun of Aussies?”

    Sure you can, Katiebabs chook. I make fun of Sean all the time, don't I. *beams*

  21. Lily says:

    Your bloggy type aims sound like 2010 will be another great year in Krisland! Looking forward to it.

    Yummy cookie but boy oh boy, these guys sure do get around! 😉

  22. jessewave says:

    Those are wonderful goals. Are your going to break them all by New Year's Day?

    You can send me your photoshop photos any time.

    Are those hash cookies? If they are regular cookies I don't want 'em. 😀

    I never knew that Sarah had a pr0n blog – just goes to show

  23. jessewave says:

    Why can't I correct my post? I meant to say “Are you going to break them all by New Year's Day?”

  24. Kris says:

    Lily, it's bound to be something that's for sure. LOL.

    “Yummy cookie but boy oh boy, these guys sure do get around! ;)”

    Are you really surprised? Those two are hot as!

    Wave, hey there. 🙂 Don't you mean are you going to achieve them all on New Year's Day? 😉

    “You can send me your photoshop photos any time.”

    Yay!!! I'll send you the one I made especially for KC. It's wicked… even if I do say so myself. *g*

  25. Kris says:

    BTW, just got my first hate mail and ETA'ed the post to reflect this.

    Needless to say that I'm happy dancing right now. *beams*

  26. Sean Kennedy says:

    You will NEVER see the steampunk now, you sorry excuse for a papa smurf. I would rather see the streets of Perth run red with blood. Or, as you know, just another Saturday night in Northbridge.

  27. Kris says:

    Let's face it, it's New Year's so Northbridge will be awash tonight…

    … so I guess I'll expect your story to beta read tomorrow then. What a terrific way to start the New Year!

    Thanks, Twinkie Boy! You're so good to me *sometimes*. 🙂

  28. Sean Kennedy says:

    I'm glad I'm just attending a g+t DVD night. Hopefully such modern classics as Bring it On will be screened.

    It's getting there. Writing the final action scene then the LENGTHY epilogue and the editing and revising can begin.

  29. Kris says:

    What no Mean Girls? That's just disappointing.

    The “LENGTHY epilogue”?? You know our mate from Leeds hates that. You sure you wanna mess with her? 😉

  30. Jenre says:

    The mate from Leeds is reserving judgement until after she's read the book.

  31. Tam says:

    Ohhh, Bring it On, we have that movie on DVD. (the advantages of having a teenage girl-child) What about Van Helsing? Although Hugh Jackman is wearing a few too many clothes. I shall be staying in tonight and doing something positively unexciting. Hope you guys had a good night.

  32. Tam says:

    Oh and you already have a story you are supposed to beta reading Kris. *taps foot* Sure, throw me over for a rich and famous author. I can take it. *sniff*

  33. Hate mail? They don't like the cookies?

  34. Emmy, who loves her blogs 140 characters at a time says:

    you should totally come play with us on Twitter. we have some…interesting convos over there.

  35. JenB says:

    We do have some interesting conversations on Twitter. And sometimes Emmy shows us her boobies!

  36. Tracy says:

    I highly object to #7. I am still in contact with Kate Perry and she still has no clue who that guy is. It's like her publisher's best kept secret!

    One of the things she said: “I still think he's some Clark Kent-esque grade school teacher who doesn't
    want to be identified so he stays safe from the school mommies.” Probably.

    She said that everything shut down for the holidays but she'll be hot on the cover models trail right after that…stay tuned. 🙂

    Oh – and I like you readolutions…or the lack thereof.

  37. Kris says:

    Jenre, you stick with that, hun.

    Tam, Tam. Being a chick as well as being awesome I can do a couple of things at once.

    Katiebabs chook: I think it's more that said someone doesn't like that I outed his obsession with blue mesh.

    Emmy & JenB: You know it was the boobies comment that got me, right. Must resist.

    Tracy, you're *partially* forgiven!!! *Partial will become total once the big reveal happens.*

    I guess that means for certain that it's not the famous cover model dude cos they would've been admitting that. Hmmmm. Curiouser and curiouser.

    Well done, #1! I see cookies in your future.

  38. orannia says:

    I love your 2010 aims, particularly:

    * Embrace my randomness. Because you're right, it is the stuff of epics 🙂

    * And always, always serve up cookies to my virtual peeps. YAH!

    But I haven't been a good minion? *decides to sulk while looking at Sarah's blog*

    *see's first photo at Sarah's blog and faints*

  39. Kris says:

    Orannia? Orannia?!

    Whoops. I did say it was pron, right??

  40. orannia says:

    *raises head*

    Whoops. I did say it was pron, right??

    You did…but I wasn't expecting that first photo… *grin*

  41. Kris says:

    Indeed, Orannia, it's quite, umm, visual, isn't it. LOL.
