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
Silliest playtime: Conversations with Kevin Scott, Marsha Mason, Nic Lemon
Most raucous laughter: Monthly bonfires organized by Janine Short
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
Most humbing moment: Little Joe’s Heart campaign and response
Friend of the year (tie): Leela Holliman, Nic Lemon, Marsha Mason
Dream come true: Travelling Costa Rica (bonus: with my brother, Shawn “Chongo” Solnik)
Greatest moment of the year: Photo with cast of PuppetUp!
I’m honored to make this prestigious list, Randy. And the feeling is mutual, my friend. Although you should probably clarify which of us is the mascot. Come to think of it, I’M not even sure which is which… 😉
Don’t limit yourself, my friend…I think sports team mascot is well within reach for you!
