New Year's Resolutions

Arf arf! Bark! Woof woof!


...Whoa, sorry about that. Looks like my computer picked up the Y2K9 virus.

Y2K9... you get it.

We here at Exfanding Your Horizons officially welcome you into the New Year (2009, in case you just emerged from a time portal and need to know when you are). To show our dedication to the commitment we never made to provide you with totally unique content that you won't find anywhere else on the blogosphere, we've prepared for you a list of our New Year's Resolutions.

Because nobody is blogging about that.

These, however are geek resolutions. You know... the kind that we might actually have a shot at accomplishing.

Approved for public consumption, here are our geek resolutions, and by Pelor, we're going to do them this year!

Alex's resolutions:
- Buy fewer comics (single issues)
- Buy more trade paperbacks (and stop buying the single issues as they come out, then buy the trade when that comes out)
- Never again buy bags and boards
- Organize my comics collection (this, I promise, will never happen)
- Publish my graphic novel
- Stop complaining about not understanding anything that's happening in the DC Universe
- Watch the remaining Star Wars movies

Nathaniel's resolutions:
- Make a serious effort at finally, finally finishing my homebrew Super Mario World (which hasn't been in development as long as Duke Nukem Forever, but it's getting there)
- Release another level for either Jedi Knight II or III
- Finish my in-progress Jetpack FAQ
- Walk away from the upcoming Star Trek movie without being upset in any way
- Read enough comics to tackle Final Crisis and not be hopelessly confused
- Acquire a Wii and play through Mega Man 9 and Metroid Prime 3: Corruption
- Get Alex to watch the other Star Wars movies, a bit of Star Trek, and to witness some Mega Man

This won't be easy. Wish us luck. Grind up some leprechauns and sprinkle them over our breakfast each morning if you have to. We'll need it.
