Christmas, New Year & All The Inbetween

Christmas is done and dusted, yet another year gone and a new one fast approaching. I am sad to report that Santa did not pop an Audi in my mailbox. Nor did he deliver me Alicide from True Blood or invent fat free chocolate that doesn't give me diarrhea.
What I did get was an iPod nano, which is truly a blessing in disguise since I ate a lot of the real chocolate over Christmas and can feel my butt literally dragging on the ground behind me when I walk. Alas I'm too scared to jump on the scales, concerned that my endless chocolate indulgence may have just backtracked my urge to kick Cindy Crawford's ass in the modelling department by about three weeks. So undoubtedly there will be a 'Warring With My Waistline' part two on the blog within the next few weeks.
Hopefully this time I will look like picture one rather than picture two:


Anyway, while I battle a chocolate addiction and an endless tug of war with my my waistline, may you all eat drink and be merry on this New Year's eve. May you dance in the street, may you spit from the top of the Eiffel tower and may you swim naked in someone else's backyard pool. And while you're doing all that, I'll be fondling my jar of Nutella with wanton abandon.
Have a good one everybody, I'll see you all next year! (That joke never gets old ... Never)

Follow Friday #13

Happy Friday everyone!
Yes, it’s that time of week again where bloggers unite to participate in the Follow Friday venture. The idea behind #FF is to promote traffic to your own blog, make new friends with other like-minded bloggers and discuss new and interesting topics each week.
Participating is simple. First you need to follow my blog because I’m totally awesome, then you can follow me on Twitter @kristyberridge (actually you don’t have to do this, it’s wishful thinking), but do follow my blog or assassins will get you …
Then you must follow our illustrious hosts Rachel of http://www.parajunkee.com/ and Alison of http://www.alisoncanread.com/ If you want more details on how to enter your own blog in the follow and hop, all directions are on their webpages
Now, once you’ve followed, check out my answer to this week’s questions and don’t forget to leave a comment so I can do the right thing and follow you back!


This week's question: The New year is here - and everyone wants to know your New Year's resolution! What are you going to try and revise, revamp and redo for 2012 on your blog!


Answer: I'm really going to try and promote my own book The Hunted a little bit more rather than talking crap. If you've read a lot of my posts, you'll know what I'm talking about. Never fear though, I will still post random incoherent thoughts for those of you who like the ride on my crazy train. Apart from that, I might actually try to figure out how to use the blogger features without screaming at the computer like the techno world is against me.
