Hau’oli Makahiki Hou!

Which is “Happy New Year” in Hawaiian, of course. And I hope they were good holidays for all of you fellow kinksters out there. As it’s New Year’s Day for me, I’m feeling a bit reflective. 2012 was the best of times and the worst of times in some ways, and yes I know it’s a terribly unoriginal thought, but that’s how it feels.

I posted a lot less last year than I did the year before, and I apologize for that. At the same time, my stats tell me the blog got nearly 110,000 hits in 2012, which is amazing to me. I know that’s the amount that popular blogs rack up in a day, but for my humble little unknown corner of kinkdom, that’s pretty heady stuff! πŸ™‚

I can’t promise there will be more activity in 2013, but considering I held off for the longest time ever starting a blog because I didn’t really think I had anything to say…well, I’m satisfied with my efforts. Even more importantly, I feel very blessed for whatever attention has come my way, thanks to all of you.

And since I know all the brats are going, “Okay, fine fine with the nostalgia and stuff, yadda, yadda, yadda….but where’s the story you promised us?!” I will dispense with further reflection and say yes, there is a new Cassie and Nicky story posted. PAY ATTENTION NOW: I’m posting it in two parts because it is long — one tonight and one tomorrow night. So if you like to read things only when they are complete, come back in a day or so. You’ve been warned. *g*

    Hey Alyx,

    Happy New Year to you πŸ™‚

    It’s so hot here, today I had to drive with a wet towel on my steering wheel. Anyway, it’s probably just my brain overheated, but I can’t seem to find the new story? Looking forward to it, wherever it is.

    Cheers to 2013 (is there a Hawaiian expression for ‘cheers’?)

    • Alyx says:

      Happy New Year, Mil! Damn, that’s hot…don’t you have air-conditioning???

      I hope you are not one of those who clicked on my link when it wasn’t working. *embarrassed* Sorry about that! Here’s a direct link for you. But remember, it’s not all posted yet.

      Be Careful What You Wish For

      Do Aussies use “cheers” like the Brits do, to mean “thanks”? If so, then “mahalo” would do it in Hawaiian. πŸ™‚

      • Mil says:

        Mahalo Alyx πŸ™‚

        I have aircon, but it takes some time to take the heat out of a red hot steering wheel.. perhaps I should try arnica gel πŸ˜‰

        Yes, we too use “cheers” for “thanks” but not as often as the Brits. We also use “cheers” in a toast where you clang glasses and slosh our drinks together – apparently originating as assurance of not poisoning each other with spiked beverages. Do you not use “cheers” like that too?

        • Alyx says:

          Ah yes, that’s the only way Yanks use “cheers,” actually. But if you want a Hawaiian equivalent, that would be “okole maluna”…..”bottoms up”! πŸ˜‰

    And aaages later the story arrives! To think that I actually didn’t die from the lo(OoOoOooOoo)ng wait is pretty amazing!

    πŸ˜€

    Happy new year, Alyx! I’m glad I found this blog and now I’ll start bugging the top out of you forever and ever.

    Happy New Year Alyx!!
    Here’s hoping 2013 is your best one yet!

    I like your Hawaiian quote, I could have googled a Scots-Gaelic one for you..but I am bone-idle and still licking my wounds after after the Hogmanay celebrations here! I am seriously getting too old..so my New Years resolution is no alcohol!

    I thought you created plenty of activity in all the various comments sections…worthy of a blog all on their own!

    Take care Alyx.
    S.

    • Alyx says:

      Happy New Year to you too, Sandy! I hope your 2013 proves to be filled with peace, prosperity, and happiness….not to mention lots of kinky adventures. πŸ˜‰

      Hogmanay, huh? You lot know how to celebrate, that’s for sure. But here now, I thought the purpose of New Year’s resolutions was to pick something you had a hope of actually carrying out??? πŸ˜†

  5. Pixie says:

    *sigh* Feelin bratty, not like me I know but…..so thought I would push my luck and say I loved the story but I am greedy, please don’t make us wait another AGE before the next one!! (Can you see the stomping foot?).

    *cough* Thank you

  6. Pixie says:

    And on reflection I retract and politely retreat….

    • Alyx says:

      ROTFL! Okay, I know PT’s influence must be taking hold — your bratty streak lasted all of ONE MINUTE before you retracted it! πŸ˜† And even before you retracted it….Sweetie, I hate to tell you this, but you have a lot to learn about being bratty. You should take lessons from Fizzy. *g*
      On second thought, if you value your ability to sit, better not. πŸ˜€

      But to answer your perfectly understandable foot stomp *well-placed swat for that* I am very much hoping that it won’t take another age before I post again. I have to say I haven’t quite solved the writer’s block problem, but I do want to try to keep barreling through and share all the stories I have in the queue, at least.

      I value all the patience and support and teasing words and even the tantrums….it’s all encouragement because I know it means you all care. So thank you for being there for asking for more. It really makes me feel very blessed. *hug* πŸ™‚

      • I wonder if Fizzy thinks ‘well placed swats’ might help with writer’s block?

        *contemplative look*

        • Pixie says:

          You are SO wise TMT πŸ™‚

        • sandy1984 says:

          That means ‘well placed swats’ really should work on all Authors then?
          If my memory is correct, it’s been almost a whole year since we’ve been thrilled by one of TMT’s sublime offerings…14th February to be exact!!

          What’s good for the goose and all that, Alyx!

        • Fizzy says:

          *nodding earnestly* oh, I do think it would help with your writer’s block, TMT! And Alyx’s too. As Sandy and the others said, it’s been far too long. What does everyone think? Should TMT and Alyx take turns spanking each other until one of them cries β€œuncle” and writes us a story? πŸ˜†

          • sandy says:

            I was on Alyx’s side until she threatend to swat everyone…so I’m voting for TMT and Alyx to whack each other and write a story each just for our entertainment!

            PS, Fizzy, I don’t understand why you used the word uncle there, is it because you’re too scared to say f**k, in case Alyx gets her ruler out or something?

        • Alyx says:

          ROTFL!! Hah, they got you there, TMT! And me too! Little brats are too smart(mouthed) for their own good, sometimes! I say we spank them all — a few well-placed swats on all those naughty bottoms would make me feel quite inspired! How ’bout you, Aer? Would that help with your writer’s block? 😈

          • *g* I hate to disappoint, dear Brats, but I don’t actually have ‘writer’s block’ at all. Soooo… I suppose what we need to do here, is assist Alyx with hers!?

            (And Alyx, those little buggers should all be given stinging rears for sheer cheek!)

            • sandy1984 says:

              Alyx, it sounds like TMT has contracted ‘can’t-be-arsed-itis’, do you know a cure by any chance?

            • Boy , y’all really hangin Alyx out to dry man and y’all ain give her no softener ! Just left here there hard and scratchie ! You is my friend here πŸ™‚ I could wait on one story from you baby . Take as long as you need here Alyx ! Dis brat gat ya back dred

            • Alyx says:

              Okay, you all make me laugh. Especially Bahamagirl’s laundry analogy — no softener and all hard and scratchy, huh? πŸ˜† And because you make me laugh, I will not be giving you all the stingy swats that I agree with TMT you deserve!

              If I do need help with my writer’s block (and I have been writing recently, so….so far not), I know I can count on TMT to give me a helping hand *cough* and for you all to be cheering her on very supportive.

              • Thanks for lookin out for my but Alyx . Tell ya what , I’ll try to be good for lent ok . That’s 40 days ( whole 40 ) of behaving . The last time I tried I made it to 40 minutes , but I’m sure I could do the 40 days naw. I feel lucky πŸ™‚

  7. Pixie says:

    *hugs back* Oh yes we certainly care! πŸ™‚ Yes PT’s influence is erm… Well, quite consistent and grabs my attention, lol! BUT I can be a brat, really I CAN πŸ˜€

  8. PT says:

    *coughs …. glares ….. then coughs again*
