TR Contest: Nerd Year Resolutions ’11

Thumbnail image for new-year-baby1.gif

?This weekend’s contest is your Nerdy New Year’s Resolutions. Yes, this is the same contest I ran last year. Yes, I’m expecting to all of you to have new resolutions. Yes, I’m also hoping you haven’t broken your resolutions already. If you recall, my 2010 resolutions were…

? To finish watching Doctor Who and Torchwood, and get started on the Avatar cartoon
To try and halt my body’s transformation into a Unicron-sized mass of
flab, thanks to my awesome and utterly sedentary pro-blogging lifestyle
? To not let FFXIII fuck up my TR schedule, no matter how much I want to
? To try and actually edit at least some of my posts

Which I can truthfully say 1) achieved, 2) achieved, 3) achieved because FFXII sucked sweaty ass, and 4) achieved, but there’s room for improvement, probably several houses of rooms. My 2011 resolutions:

? Watch all of the new Battlestar Galactica
? Read all of George R.R. Martin’s Fire and Ice books (two down, two to go)
? To reverse my body’s transformation into a Unicron-sized mass of
flab, to at least some degree
? Edit more than 5% of my posts

Now it’s your turn. One resolution per person. Contests ends at 12:01 am EST on Monday, January 10th. I will be checking that at least the winners haven’t repeated themselves from last year, so there’s no point in doing it. I won’t wish you to have a good weekend, because frankly I think that might be impossible after today’s FFF. But… stay strong. And stay away from cars and Pixar movies if you can. And don’t try not to cry. We can’t start the healing until we’ve gotten past the pain.
