210 of Twenty Ten

Edit: We have our first 2 members… although 1 is me but still TWO! ๐Ÿ™‚

Back in 2008 I joined a book challenge called ’28 books in 2008′ and for someone like me that was just much too easy. Not really a challenge at all, so I thought this year lets up the ante.

This years challenge is 210 books in 2010. Now that’s a challenge! Especially considering it is already late January. I’m cheating a little and including the books I have already read this year. Although, I can’t remember them all. Yes, they were obviously very memorable.

Now, you can join too! Why not compete with me and we’ll see how we go. I’ll be adding a members list and will definitely check everyone elses list to see what they’re reading and get some (much needed, I’m sure) suggestions. Want to see where I’m up too? Here is my list

If you would like to join add a comment to this post and I’ll add you to the members list. And please take this neat button to let everyone else know that you’re competing:

210 of Twenty Ten

Ok, so it’s only a little neat. A little blurry perhaps… it’s just the beginning. There will be more cool to come… watch this space ๐Ÿ™‚

The rules? Well, there aren’t a lot of rules. Previously, I’ve seen challenges like this that restrict the amount of books you can read from one author and well, that is a bit mean! I want to encourage everyone to read as much as they can so you can read whatever you like!

I’d love to see everyone add their own book list though and link back please. The more competitors the better!

So, what are you waiting for? Join!

So Squeaky Clean

Oh my woah! Will you look at Lazily? So Squeaky Clean my friends! It’s all pink and blue and beautiful. Alas, though, I did not make it myself. It is a free theme that I stole.. well borrowed, with permission. I thought it was time for something new and fresh and I didn’t have the time or the skills to do it myself this time. Plus, this has widgets! Oh my how I love a widgetized theme! *drools*
I’m also incredibly envious of the little girl up there (to the right) bikini and beach… it is so hot here today I wish I had a bikini and a beach and a few fish and a flower in my hair.
So what is new and happening here at lazily? Well, I’ve decided to start using tags! (finally) although I am too lazy to go back and tag all the old posts. They’ll be jealous I’m sure. I’m going to add some pages and such… you know all the stuff I always say I’ll do (but hopefully I really do this time). I think mostly though, I’m going to learn! I’m so far behind in anything wordpress and I feel bad because of it. I want to make these things myself damnit! So, I will learn and hopefully the next shiny and sparkly layout will be all mine ๐Ÿ™‚

Now to go tweak!

Hello Twenty-Ten

Initially, I wanted to have a post on 1/1/10 and write about the awesomeness of how Twenty-Ten sounds. Then I got lazy and remembered I don’t much care about the changing of the years and couldn’t much be bothered. As such my post is now dated 17/1/10. Not quite as cool.

I’m not really a new years resolution kind of person but I do like to think about what I’ll acheive in the coming year. I wanted a pay rise and in fact I have already accomplished that. Although, I didn’t get to negotiate it or anything. I should be super happy but instead I feel like they gave me some money to keep me quiet. I want to know why they chose the amount they chose, why am I only worth an additional $2500 a year when I have learnt and helped out so much? What was it that made them give me more money at all? I don’t know. The boss said “you’re getting a pay rise and this is how much, good?” and well… I wasn’t going to say no was I?

This year I want to work more on Lazily… yes, poor neglected Lazily. I’m hoping to learn more skills and be a more competent website owner.

Again, I want to lose some weight. I’m still 19KG from my goal weight, I wonder if I can lose at least another 10KG of that this year? Here’s hoping.

And… I don’t know what else I want. Happiness? I ask for that every year and never get it so perhaps I shouldn’t hope for it again.

What are you hoping to for in the next… however long? ๐Ÿ™‚
