I like stereotypes, I like following in other people’s wakes and I like copying other people’s ideas and calling them my own. So it can be no surprise to you that I am doing a Year in Review post, like every other blogger out there. However, mine is better because I am funnier and more interesting than everyone else out there (except the Bloggess, Megan and Aunt Becky – none of whom did a Year in Review post so I have no competition - hmm... maybe I should take a hint from them, with their oober-successful blogs... nah).
I will be giving awards to myself and my own life and select few people that I like. Self centered, yes. But this is a blog primarily about me, so it seems fitting.
Country I lived in the longest this year:
Spain. Congrats Spain! You held my attention the longest this year. A close honorable mention goes to Ireland for attempting to real me in. But unfortunately, a case of the crazy roommates left me wanting more. And more, I found.
Thing that made me laugh the most: Antonio’s rooster call. Every week this made me die a terrible laugh induced death. It was at its all time highest the night that our dear drunk groupie Ernesto dressed in a flamenco dress and followed Antonio with his rendition of a turkey while doing the worm. Honorable mention goes to a drunken conversation about sexual intercourses I had with Joel & Dave one very late night on gchat.
Friend(s) who loved me the most this year:
B Lee and Emmy Lee. Because they flew half way around the world just to see me (and for no other reason). Honorable mention goes to my roomies in Greenpoint for letting me sleep on their couch (aka my studio apartment) for WAY too long.
People I met who I liked the most in a non-sexual way – not to say I wouldn’t, I just didn’t:
It’s a three way tie with Dave, Joel and Diana. These people make me happy on a daily basis and if you don’t follow their blogs, you should. End of story. Honorable mention goes to my BFF Clair in Spain whose dirty mouth makes mine look like a Mr Clean commercial.
People I haven’t met who I liked the most in a non-sexual way:
Jimmy Fallon. Who may not know it but we have a twitter relationship. And I like to watch videos of him while I’m in bed. @jimmyfallon you are my soul mate, so DM me already! Honorable mention would have gone to Hugh Jackman or his brother, but then I met them. So they get no award.
Biggest mistake I made this year (in a non-sexual way):
Booking a tour through This Is Valencia. Because I ended up sleeping in a parking lot on a t-shirt soaked in tomato sauce for most of it. Honorable mention goes to assuming that since Lisbon, Portugal is a coastal city, it’s got a beach. Sorry guys. I messed that one up.
Best travel blog of 2010:
Mine. Duh. Honorable Mention: Well. There is none. Because I can’t pick. So I’ll just list the only 7 blogs that remained on my RSS reader at the end of the 2010 year. These people are the only travel people whose blogs didn’t annoy me to the point of unsubscription last year (In No Any An Undisclosed Particular Order).
Happy New Year! Can’t wait for 2011 and what it brings for us!
