To placate Kelly, here is the list of failures I had over the year. 🙂
Cook from a Bill Granger book once a week (if I’m home) – and blog it as proof
FAIL – Had a very long period of not really cooking at all. Also had a very long period of not blogging at all. Over the past few weeks or so though I have gotten back in to cooking so I am making progress. Still love Bill Granger books though.
Have a weekend by myself solo
SUCCESS – Did one better, had an entire week in a wicked van by myself solo. This trip was really essential for me to recuperate mentally from life and I came back feeling renewed, refreshed and a lot happier. I guess as a somewhat introverted person I needed this time away.
Go Camping with Mat and Kelly
SUCCESS – Pauline arranged for quite a few people to go camping on her birthday and we finally got to sleep on uncomfortable ground but have lots of fun doing it.
Buy a dishwasher
FAIL – Still haven’t got a new kitchen and therefore no dishwasher. This will surely happen in 2009!
Go to Sydney
SUCCESS – I’m not sure if a one hour stopover on the way to Hong Kong counts, but I did surprisingly get to go in December for a work trip. Didn’t spend long there though, just long enough to eat some good german food and get chatted up by men in a gay bar.
Be more environmentally friendly and reduce my power usage
FAIL – I didn’t really do anything here. 🙁
Do my tax on time
FAIL – Bigtime – I still haven’t done it.
Lessen my addiction to consumerism (not sure how I’ll measure this)
EVEN – I removed all rss feeds about sneakers and cut my purchases down of shoes, but I did go shopping in Hong Kong and also buy a Dell mini laptop. I think I’m not so bad this year, but not good enough to call it a success.
One day a fortnight without tv or internet
FAIL – A few accidentals from not being at home, but definitely not a concerted effort to turn off the boxes.
Read my mail at least once a week
FAIL – Once a month more like it.
Fail to success score is 6 to 3 with one even. This means I suck. 🙂

Still very very impressed that you updated the list, I actually couldn’t even remember you writing the list in the first place! hahaha
Hope you’re doing one for 2009?
D’oh…just saw you already have done your list for 2009. My bad!
