Top Tens and Resolutions

I don't generally make lists, except of the grocery or things-to-do variety, but since they seem to be everywhere I turn these days, I started thinking about them.

Albeit not too hard, as you'll soon be able to tell.

TOP TEN FAVORITE AUTHORS-AS-PEOPLE (in no particular order):

Jeanne, Clare, Katrina, and everybody at Liquid Silver Books, because they're so darned nice. (That's more than ten, but I just wanted to give a nod to tradition.)


Pull together a band of flying monkeys, because I believe they would come in handy for a variety of tasks.

Good luck with that resolution. My friend Craig has dancing monkeys but that's something altogether different.

Have a good evening and stay safe and warm as you ring in the new year. Much success in 2010.

Best thing to do is setup some hick girl with a yapping dog and red disco shoes and tell her she has to kill the wicked witch.

Glenda knew what she was doing. Got her flying monkeys without having to lift a finger.

Chris said...

Best resolution I've read so far! Happy New Year!

K. Z. Snow said...

Thank you, Tam, and infinitely more thanks for your support. UX4 will be on its way to you on the 5th or 6th. Don't paint the town red tonight; I'm sure everybody in Ottawa knows where you live. ;-)

K. Z. Snow said...

Hiya, Chris! Ah, fuck resolutions. I don't think I've ever kept one in my life.

K. Z. Snow said...

HA TeddyPig!

Man, I've been rethinking those monkeys. Monkeys are vicious creatures--I was once bitten by one--but their suits are just so damned cute! They kind of remind me of Johnny Roventini, the Phillip Morris bellhop from those old TV and magazine ads.

Hick girls I don't need. There are plenty around here already. Now a Dorothy drag queen would be cool. ;-)

MB (Leah) said...

My New Year's resolution? To eat what the eff I want to and be a deboucherous pig.

Cause seriously, whenever I've been a deboucherous pig, I've lost tons of weight and had tons of hot sex. Trying to be a good, healthy girl doesn't work for me. snort

Good luck with them flying monkeys. :D

Oh and one other resolution, read Acts of the Saints :D

K. Z. Snow said...

Hey, Leah, long time no see! How are things in that tropical paradise? Bet you don't have two feet on snow on the ground and temps in the teens.

By all means, go for it! May I live vicariously through you? :-D

Hope you like Acts. But be warned: it's no picnic.

Kris said...

You need to come on down to the Land of Oz, hun. Flying monkies are the least of it.

Happy New Year to you!!

K. Z. Snow said...

Kris, talk about minions! Want me to hook you up with some?

Jeanne Barrack said...

Hey, KZ
Yesterday was not one of my better days...but seeing your list made me feel much better!
I'm trying to look at 2010 with a more positive outlook.
Change that to optimistic...
Knew good things would come your way, kiddo!

word veri: rolat
*sigh* this word veri cannot speak French properly.
It should read
laissez le bon temps rouler
Let the good times roll!

K. Z. Snow said...

Happy New Year, hon! And BIG congrats on that wonderful review for Bend in the Road!

Jeanne said...

Thanks, KZ
You know what word I liked especially in that review.8>)

Clare London said...

Gosh, is that Clare *me*, or one of other fab Clares you know ? :)

These year-end lists have been getting me down a tad - I've been preparing a provocative post at my blog on the topic, but (luckily? heh) a fellow author has stepped into the gap I had in the schedule. So the provocation waits for another day *hehe*. Its theme also fits rather neatly with your lovely 'authors-as-people category.

You've had a great year, love, and with more to come. I'm so excited for you.

Forget the monkeys, I want surfer dudes in beach shorts and friendship beads who'll smile when I feel down. Dammit, even if they can't iron my shirts and I *still* have to find time myself for promo...


"coldblers", changing at the last minute to "mablichn"?!!

K. Z. Snow said...

Well, damn, I should've been more specific, since I know so flippin' many writers named Clare. ;-)

Yeah, those end-of-the-year lists tend to get me down too. If it weren't for dear Jen, the only listmaker who thinks I can write, I might be considering a new career right about now.

For what it's worth, you're tops in my book, sugar. (And let's not forget who's received not one but two golden tickets from invitation-only publishers! That'll only happen to me if I start my own elite company and invite myself. *g*)
