HAPPY NUDE REAR!


Welcome to 2010! I hope it brings joy and laughter and good things to all. Now, a bit about the state of me. :D

Last January, I signed up for findyourwords, choosing a target of 50k for the year. I didn't quite make it, for various and sundry mostly family-related reasons, but I got close enough to put a smile on my face:


That is almost as much as I wrote in the last two years combined: 2007=25k, 2008=22k. *boggles*

So, I've decided to sign up for it again, and have once again chosen 50k, but now I'm looking at 75k and thinking... it's only just over 200 words a day, self, you know you can do it. And I have until the end of January to change my mind. *headdesk*

literati and I also set a reading target of 33 books for last year, and while she made it with whole days to spare, I didn't quite hit that target either (30/33 = 91%). Also, partway into the year, I convinced her that twelve comics equal one book, so the majority of my total 'book' count is actually made up of DC comic runs and major comic events.


30 / 33
(91%)


2010's target is 40 'books', and it's going to be even more comic-filled and full of pretty pictures and speech bubbles. And this whole comic book addiction is all suki_blue's fault. :D

Your books-to-comics equations crack me up.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Hee! It was carefully calculated, really it was. *g* (~20 mins per comic = 4hrs for a dozen, and I know I've read plenty of books in 4 hours and under *g*)

Thank you! *smooch*

HAPPY NUDE REAR!!! but not if it's too cold. :D

Never thought to substitute comics for books... damn.

And YAY for words!!!!
darkhavens: nude rear [me]darkhavens on January 1st, 2010 02:17 am (UTC)
Yay for words indeed! Sometimes they played hide and seek at the most inopportune moments, and at other times came pouring out... also often at inopportune moments. *g*

The comic book sub is a good gig, but Lit hsa put her foot down this year and decreed that 10 of the books have to be actual books, gasp shock horror! She's such a harsh task master. ;)

Happy New Year!
Wow! I'm so impressed and inspired by your goals. I think it's time I did some goal-setting myself.

Have a great year and I hope you share your book choices with us along the way ... and your writing!

Re: Happy New Year!
Thank you! :D

Goal-setting seems to work better for me than resolutions, for some odd reason.

I'm going to try and be more vocal on lj this year, not just posting fic and then hiding in the shadows, so I may very well end up making 'This is wot I read this week' and 'This is wot I watched this week' posts. Hopefully, it won't scare too many watchers away. *g*

Re: Happy New Year!
Well, it won't scare me! I'll be reading and learning and adding things to me "read" list and my "watch" list.

I'm mentally working on my goals. One that I haven't quite figure out has to do with books I've started and haven't finished. My home is littered with books with tails: bookmakers with strings and tassles attached. I need to read those books so they don't make me feel guilty whenever I see them. ;-)

Merry merry new year to you and Mommie Dearest!!
*grabs you and hugs you tight*

Hope 2010 is awesome for you both. :)

Back atcha. ;)

I'm hoping 2010 brings better things for us all.

Happy new year and good luck with your goals. Think I'll have to sign up myself. You can have some of my books. I probably read 100+. >.
darkhavens: nude rear [me]darkhavens on January 2nd, 2010 01:55 pm (UTC)
Thank you! :D

I used to go through at least a dozen books a week, without fail. And then I got a computer, discovered fanfic and now most of my reading is fannish. That's why Lit and I decided to set a fanfic-free goal (though, frankly, a lot of the published stuff nowadays is inferior to the better fics out there).

100+ is a good total! keep up the good work. ;)

I know! Where did the years go? Where's that easily accessible space station? Where are our personal teleporters? We've been duped. *g*

Happy Nude Rear to you too! May it be a happy, relaxed, problem-free year filled with fun stuff.

And this whole comic book addiction is all suki_blue's fault.

Happy to claim that responsibility, but really we should both blame amejisuto because it was her who one day many years ago sent me a very hot picture as reference when I asked: 'Okay, who the hell is this Dick you keep going on about?' *g*

Well done on the targets!
darkhavens: batflash flirty [literati]darkhavens on January 5th, 2010 07:21 pm (UTC)
Hahaha! I am sure Ame would be chuffed to shoulder that blame. *g*

I showed MD that hotass rearview shot where he's telling off the Secret Six and she was very impressed. :P

Here's hoping this new year will bring better things for us all. *smooches and smishes*
