New Year's Resolutions... And Other Lies

My resolution?  To be able to say, "Bugger off, people!" with more confidence and more often.

A lot more often.

Seriously, that whole plan I had to raise my daughter to be a lady and polite is gone and has been replaced by a plan which involves a lot of "No." and "Do it yourself." and probably some, "Don't be such a pussy."

Because being nice and polite and thoughtful is a surefire way to get your ass handed back to you and not on silver platter - maybe with an attractive garnish of your ego and self esteem.

And so Internet, say goodbye to the kind Kristin of 1969 - 2007 and welcome, with trepidation, I might add, the go-fuck-yourself Kristin of 2008 and beyond.

Ah, now there's the feisty Kristen I like! Let the real fun and games begin!

Kristin said...

Anonymous - how funny you are! But I agree, things have gotten entirely too sweet around these parts.

Shelley said...

Wow, who pissed on your Cherrios?

Mrs. Chicky said...

I'm looking forward to meeting go-fuck-yourself-Kristin. I bet she's a lot of fun.

Jennifer (Jen on the Edge) said...

Oh this ought to be GOOD. If there's a story behind this, I really want to hear it.

Also, 1969? Really? What month? I'm May. Good year. We are of an excellent vintage.

TBG Happenings said...

ahhh I agree.....we all need to be "just bitchy" enough:)

Happy New Year! and thanks for the warning!

Kristin said...

Shell - EVERYONE!

Mrs. Chicky - I think she is similar to the current Kristin, just with better hair and a lot more swearing.

Jen - August...we're like cyber-bitchy twins!

TBG - That is exactly it, "bitchy enough"... perfect.

wzgirl said...

Oh yea, the Pussy comment. Working on that.

For 2008. Same-Same.

carrie said...

Hear! Hear!

Maybe some of that "saying no" stuff will rub off on me. lord knows, I need it.

Glinda said...

You go, bi&ch!

furiousBall said...

Kristin... she enjoys kicking ass and chewing gum, and she's fresh outta gum

jennie said...

this sounds like fun.

Kristin said...

Furious Ball - Seriously, that might just be my new tag line.

SSC said...

I found your blog while on Joe's page.

You are my new hero, I love you!!!!!

Kristin said...

SSC - I love you too!

Mom2Boober-Do said...

It's like I get it, I do-entirely- trust me on that- but then it scares me, a little, to know this is the world we live in... a world that calls for that.
Either way, I like you. Always have. Looking forward to seeing what more you're made of :O)

Kristin said...

Kris - I know what you mean, but I don't look at it as a total goodbye to kindness, rather, it's more of self preservation... I have had a habit of SUFFERING and SUCKING IT UP no matter what the nonsense... that's what I am done with!

egan said...

I can't wait for the 2008 version of this blog.

Shelley said...

Girlfriend, you're one of the least wimpy people I know. And ...you're kind to boot. That's what I love about you!

rubyiscoming said...

TRUST me, after the shitty ass BM situation we just endured from our domestic adoption (that fell apart), I'm gonna be a beeeeatch from hell in 2008. To hell with dumb people and being overly nice!!! I take no prisoners in 2008!

Arrrrgh

Pattie said...

Woo hoo!!

Can I join up, too?

Happy New Year, Kristin! Loved the photo of your kids, too. What a blessed a beautiful family you have!

;-)

Grim Reality Girl said...

Bitches unite!

Happy New Year! I have a year on you!! 2008 will be great or we will have to kick serious ass.

Jodi said...

Hum, yes, I sense something or somebody kinda made you mad, no?

Phoenix said...

I'm with you. Hell I may just keep that resolution.

Los said...

Now, that's a new twist on a New Year's resolution ... I like it! I haven't thought about what I'm going to resolve to do ... probably resolve to never step foot in a Walmart again ... EVER!

Lisa and Tate said...

I think there is a story behind this that you NEED to share. It will be a great 2008 reading the feisty Kristen.

Fliss and Mike Adventures said...

I will admit that at times, I do feel like that... esp where I work... I want to tell the customers to just bugger off... have a wonderful 2008 - stay happy, safe and take care...

Oh, The Joys said...

I'm not willing to give up saying that just yet.

Tori said...

Fuck you too....

Yay - this is the Kristin I love....

Bring it on bitch!

InterstellarLass said...

Hell yeah. After two weeks at home with my kids, I think I actually told my kid she was being an annoying whiner. Well, she was...

Gen said...

We are going to be real fun this year!!

I am no more Mrs. Nice Mommy, Go ahead and step all over me Mommy, and Mommy to a little Diva.

Little Miss Thing starts walking to school next week. Any sassing results in a week of no TV. And after that - I take things from her room.

I am now channeling my inner bitch back and she's here to stay.
