Hello! Happy new year! Did you miss me? I spent most of the holidays arguing with various family members and eating. I also played a lot of Plants vs. Zombies on my Ipod – in fact, I beat the game! – and watched all of the Star Wars movies again, except with Rifftrax. I didn’t practice or write or teach or administer anything. Fun times.
So, my resolutions (not 11 things I’m giving up):
– Work out a lot and get really fit
– Eat lots of healthy and delicious vegan food
– Produce Call of Cthulhu: The Opera
– Write more good things
And that’s really it.
You notice I didn’t write “Lose 20 pounds” or “Write a novel that has a chance in hell of being published”. I’ve found goal-type resolutions are not likely to be kept. So instead of saying “Lose weight” I’ve said “Exercise more!” Whether I lose weight or not that’s a good thing.
And speaking of healthy and delicious vegan food, I got the Veganomicon for Christmas. So far I have made:
– Lasagna with Spinach and Mushrooms (using a cashew ricotta)
– BBQ Seitan Sandwiches with coleslaw
– Mediterranean Baked Lima Beans
all of which were AWESOME. The lasagna was actually the first lasagna I’ve ever made, because even when I ate dairy I never ate cheese, so I’m glad it turned out well.
Moving on to the approval of random strangers, on New Year’s Day I got an email from WordPress, telling me how my blogging was for 2010.
They think I did AWESOME!
A Boeing 747-400 passenger jet can hold 416 passengers. This blog was viewed about 7,400 times in 2010. That’s about 18 full 747s.
In 2010, you wrote 138 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 481 posts. You uploaded 69 pictures, taking up a total of 48mb. That’s about 1 pictures per week.
Your busiest day of the year was April 13th with 109 views. The most popular post that day was Complaining with Kay, Episode 50: Regrettably, the Best of Complaining with Kay.
Also my post about the anti-Mennonite conspiracy theorist continues to be popular:
Some visitors came searching, mostly for scintillator, do not want, mennonite, mennonites, and mennonite people.
So there you go. WordPress thinks I’m great!
