I don’t usually do resolutions, and I’m not one to look back too closely at what’s gone by. But I do try to see if there are any lessons to be taken from the passing year, and consider them when setting goals for the next. Sounds like semantics, I know, but I find… it’s not the precise wording that matters, but that we keep growing, keep moving forward, however small the steps may be.

Sometimes my plans are bigger than my strength or my will. I may be manic and write down I WANNA GET AN AGENT AND GET A CONTRACT FOR A FIVE BOOK SERIES AND STILL BLOG AND WRITE EBOOKS AND DO FREELANCE WORK, AND I’M GOING TO LOSE FIFTY POUNDS, MEDIATE EVERY DAY, DO YOGA THREE DAYS A WEEK, etc. etc. But we all know those things can’t all be done. No matter how good our intentions, we are only human.

I didn’t meet all of my goals, but it’s been a wonderful, productive year nonetheless. I grew, I changed, I moved forward, and I had a great deal of fun all the way. I haven’t thought out my goals yet, so I can’t share them with you, but… know that I hope to publish a lot more in 2012, both as fun me and kinky me! And I wish you and yours all the happiness and joy of a new year!

Thursday 13 for December 14 — Hey, the world didn’t end!

Silly Mayans.


I’m absolutely beat with a stick — between work and getting sick…blah blah blah. I’m sure you guys get sick of hearing my excuses. So here’s a quick list!


One of my favorite ways to celebrate the holiday season is to glut myself on holiday movies! Here are 13 of my very favorites!

1. A Christmas Story- Ralphie and his family have been at the top of my list for years. “YOU’LL SHOOT YOUR EYE OUT!”

2. It’s a Wonderful Life – I can’t help it. The original makes me cry every year, and not a remake since has even come close.

3. Love, Actually – I can’t tell you what it is about this movie that moves me so much, especially since it’s so sad! But ultimately, in the end, it does tell a story about the beauty and pain that love can bring.

4. Elf – The best way to spread Christmas cheer is to sing loud for all to hear! Also stars one of my massive girlcrushes, Zooey Deschanel, any my favorite version of “Baby, It’s Cold Outside.” Although John Barrowman and the boys from Glee did it for me as well. 😉

5. Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer – The Island of Misfit Toys!

6. The Year Without a Santa Clause – I grew up with all these Rankin/Bass stop motion animation specials, and they still mean “Christmas” to me.

7. A Christmas Carol- the only question is which one! Seriously, I like pretty much all of them.

8. Santa Claus is Coming to Town – Heat Meiser and Snow Meiser, Baby Vixen, Jingle and Jangle? Who can say no? Another Rankin/Bass classic.

9. How the Grinch Stole Christmas must be the original cartoon, although the live action version is cute.

10. A Charlie Brown Christmas – That poor tree. At least it got to be decorated and loved… and have freaky characters dancing weird 60’s dances around it…

11. Gremlins – It is too a Christmas movie — as well as a great object lesson in following directions and taking care of your pets!

12. The Muppet Christmas Carol or John Denver and the Muppets – Anything with Muppets in it is okay by me. 😀

13. Miracle on 34th St. – The original classic. *sigh*
