As the alcohol sets in and the year ends, I thought I’d take a moment to consider the 2013 Randys, the seminal moments and/or people of the past year.
Every year is special but this was truly a year for the books (or Kindles/Kobos if you’re one of those people).
Most engaging conversation: Weekly meetings with friend, Agah Bahari
Friend, child of the universe and novel buddy (as in we’re writing a novel) Agah
Silliest playtime: Conversations with Kevin Scott, Marsha Mason, Nic Lemon
Just set the camera to record and place a diaper on the furniture…there will be pee
Most raucous laughter: Monthly bonfires organized by Janine Short
Conversation runs the gamut from politics to coitus interruptus and everything in between
Most head-spinning period: Austin Film Festival, both the sessions and attendees
Oddest friendship (tie): Virtual connection to blogger Ned Hickson; Duke #75, mascot of the Toronto Marlies
One is a pro hockey mascot and the other is a humorist (US spelling here)
Most humbing moment: Little Joe’s Heart campaign and response
We lost a little fighter this year…he will not be forgotten
Friend of the year (tie): Leela Holliman, Nic Lemon, Marsha Mason
This is Leela…you met Nick and Marsha above
Dream come true: Travelling Costa Rica (bonus: with my brother, Shawn “Chongo” Solnik)
One of the few photos of my brother NOT flipping the bird…here he flips fish
Greatest moment of the year: Photo with cast of PuppetUp!
I don’t care if you’re sick of hearing about these guys
