my 2010 readolutions: an analysis

I think I was meant to do this before the end of last year, but, well, I couldn’t be fucked doing it then so you’re getting it now.

How I did with my 10 bloggy type aims for 2010?

Aim #1 – Read. A lot. Rant about it. A lot.  Please.  As if I was going to fail at this.

Aim #2 – Continue with the tasting-a-month thing up to the point just before it completely pisses me off.  I did it for 6 months.  Got tired of it, felt guilty – it happens.  not often, but it happens. – and then caught up on my tastings in 6ish days.  My version of the 12 days of Krismas.

Aim #3 – Embrace my randomness. It is the stuff of epics. I’m pretty sure I was even more random in 2010. I think it might be associated with getting older.  In a senile kind of a way.

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.  My obsession lasted maybe a week.  Damned toy poodle flu.

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.  I received my first hate mail within hours of posting this.  It’s disgusting how much Sean Kennedy loves me.  In all seriousness, though, I was quite disappointed in the utter lack of people hating me.  Obviously I need to try to be even more offensive.

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

Aim #7 – Get new minions since the old ones have utterly failed me.  Success!  And the proof that my new minions appreciate my awesomesauceness. 

Aim #8 – Over a 24 hour period, create a Twitter account, start a wankfest and then ninja flash out of there.  Well, I joined Twitter… That’s got to count for a 1/3 of a mark, right?  Right.

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.  I think you’ll all agree that we picked on some wonderful authors in 2010.  But fear not, my vegemite muffins!  For I, Kris, the Queen of the Fucking Universe, have already got the next victim lined up for a Valentine’s story!  There will be wereoctopi and other types of win!  Woo and hoo.

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

  1. Tam says:

    Wow, you're freaking amazing. Hopefully this year will be the one where you become the recipient of copious amounts of hate mail. You can do it, I know you can. 🙂

    Check your junk mail folder, maybe your e-mail is so smart it's screening out hate mail.

  2. Ingrid says:

    From one of your old minions: Good luck with those.
    Lucky for me you ran out of space to enter resolution 816: make me join twitter

  3. “Aim #3 – Embrace my randomness. It is the stuff of epics. I'm pretty sure I was even more random in 2010. I think it might be associated with getting older. In a senile kind of a way.”

    That fact that you recognize it and can explain and make sense of your randomness means you are not nearly random enough. #fail

  4. Kris says:

    Tam: You got me all excited. For nothing. All that was there were some emails about how to make my imaginary dick bigger and people trying to sell me gold mines in Africa. Very disappointing.

    Oh, and…

    “Wow, you're freaking amazing.”

    I know.

    Ingrid: “Lucky for me you ran out of space to enter resolution 816: make me join twitter.”

    You have no idea about the fun you're missing out on, Ingrid. There are cookies galore and living vicariously through the tweets of gay pron stars.

    FV: Nope, actually that would be my OCD. 😛

  5. Eyre says:

    Hon, if I were an author, I'd send you hate mail.

    BTW, I love your randomness. You are pretty amazing.

  6. You actually made up ten things you “want” to do….

    The saint preserve us if you actually succeed…

    As for the hate mail… never fear, I haven't finished my list YET….


  7. Kris says:

    Eyre: Thank you, dear heart. For the offer and for loving my randomness. It is pretty awesome.

    EH: The saints won't be of any help to you then. Trust me on this. 😛

    I'll look forward to reading your list.

  8. Emilie says:

    Happy New Year, Kris. Yes, I am a day late as far as you're concerned. Otherwise I'm a pretty good minion.

    I think you succeeded wonderfully well with the randomness. You did quite well with the reading and ranting as well. The “choose your own m/m stories” rocked. I love that the authors are even putting covers on their stories. Good covers, too.

    I actually can't remember you starting wankfests. I remember major wankfests started and continued by other people on the Internet this year. I usually just watch them, with the fascination of watching a slow train wreck. Sometimes I take the “highlights” of the wank back to my LJ and give my opinion on it there.

    I remember you mocking books and characters, authors not so much. I'll have to read back. There was a lot of teasing, but the authors were generally pretty good sports about that.

    You achieved more of your resolutions than not. I think you did a good job on them.

  9. Today was a holiday so I think you need to give us more than just one cookie today! Please? LOL

  10. Ally Blue says:

    Two words: tentacle sex.

    You know it's coming *g*

    Also, I eagerly await the wankfest you will one day start. It will be AWESOME.

  11. Kris says:

    Thanks, Emilie luv. For that comment you will get this month's coveted Minion of the Month Award. Congratulations.

    The rest of you, take note.

    Amy: If you're lucky I might post one for you on Twitter. And by lucky I mean suck up to me.

    Ally: Well, wereoctopi deserve love too. 😛

    “Also, I eagerly await the wankfest you will one day start. It will be AWESOME.”

    It will probably get me killed by certain peeps, but it will be fun!

  12. Angelia says:

    I'm good for the choose your own adventure any time. I promised after the holidays.

  13. #Aim 6 tis impossible – no one can resist Sarah's pron blog!

  14. You mean to tell me that you haven't been getting my expertly crafted, vitriolic and grammatically correct hate-emails?

    I wonder who I've been sending them to…?

  15. Lily says:

    Yes, you definitely are made of awesomeness!!

    Fab list!

  16. Chris says:

    *returns from Sarah's pron blog link*

    What were we talking about?

  17. orannia says:

    I think you more than succeeded with your readalutions for 2010, particularly And always, always serve up cookies to my virtual peeps, which personally I think you excelled at 🙂 This is one happy minion! *beams*

  18. Kris says:

    Angelia: You did and trust me you were top of the list… until Ally practically begged me to do a wereoctopi story. It was so embarassment.

    You're next. I'm already gathering my choices for you, Angelia. 😉

    KC: Good point. That means the whole aim is null and void so I win. :DDD

    Wren: You probably sent it to Jen. Don't worry though. She's used to it. 😛

  19. Kris says:

    Lily: “Yes, you definitely are made of awesomeness!!”

    I know, but it's nice to hear it out loud sometimes.

    Chris: You saw the manga pic, didn't you. You perve.

    Orannia: Awww, you will always be one of my fave minions, sweetie. *huggles*

  20. K. Z. Snow says:

    You mean…you're not going to become one of my Snowflakes? But, but…I was going to make you president of the club!


  21. Kris says:

    KZ: So tempting, but… No.

  22. K. Z. Snow says:

    Shit. That leaves Castanet.

    “proboy” – Yeah, wish I could afford to hire one.

  23. Kris says:

    You should feel lucky that you have MsC. She's an army of rabid fans all rolled into one. 😛

  24. orannia says:

    Ohhh. *beams* *hugs*

  25. I am speechless and drooling over the absolutely scrumptious scruffy kissing cookies. *sigh*

  26. Kris says:

    Miranda: Speechless at how awesome I am? I understand. It happens a lot.

    Scruffy cookies are some of the best kind. 🙂
