Person(s) of the Year: Voters. I had a tough time with my year end wrap up for 2012 because I usually tend to gravitate toward entertainment news over serious topics. However the biggest story of the year was undoubtedly the politics. I chose voters as my Person(s) of the Year because in the end it was our choices that made history. President Obama won re-election because voters chose him. Voters also passed bills in favor of gay marriage and marijuana usage. Voters got out to the polls to make their voices heard and hopefully it will be the start of some real change.
Best Book (audio): Girl Walks Into a Bar by Rachel Dratch– I bought this audio book to listen to as I drove from Connecticut to Texas. It’s a great book that is both funny and touching. Since my first listen, I have gone back and ‘read’ it about 10 more times. No joke. I’ve listened to it at work and on planes and it continues to entertain me. Side note: I hate to read, so all my books are always audio.
Best Album: Ceremonial by Florance and the Machine. There were not a lot of memorable moments in music this year. It occurred to me that Ceremonials was by far the album that I listened to the most. Seeing Florance and the Machine live in concert elevated it to another level. If you get a chance, they are a must see.
Best bear run adds: Orlando Bear Bash via Tumblr. They know their market and have pumped out cock and cum filled adds. LOVE IT!
Best Reality Show Winner: Sharon Needles. Chad Michaels may have won All Stars but she was already beaten by Sharon Needles. Hands down my favorite Rupaul winner.
Funniest Movie: For a Good Time Call. This film was missed by a lot of movie go-ers even though it was hilarious. Catch it on video if you get the chance.
Person who I hated and ended up liking: Taylor Swift Ok I’ll admit it… she won me over with her song We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together. I love it, especially the part in the middle where she talks.
Best TV moment: Rupaul’s All Stars Drag Race: (Episode 5) The ‘Lip Sync for Your Life’ competition between JuJubee and Raven to Robyn’s Dancing On My Own. IT. WAS. EVERYTHING. Easily the best moment of the season. Sorry Chad Michaels, you were upstaged again.
Best One Hit Wonder: Call Me Maybe. Is Carly Rae Jepsen going to have another hit? That is big far NO! Sorry Carly. Call Me Maybe is a really good song though.
Best Sneakers: Brenden. I had to give Brenden a special mention because he invited me to parties and introduced me to all his friends when I first moved here. I will always be grateful for that. It really made a huge difference. He’s a good friend. He also has the best sneakers. His current pair is orange.
Best Picture (that I can’t publish): Andy S. I can’t/won’t show it because it’s not mine to share. However it’s such an awesome picture on so many levels. He manages cute and sexy amongst a gold gilded living room. It was so amazing that both me and by boyfriend created our own versions of it. (No I can’t show those either)
Shout Outs: The men of Dallas– Nick, Stephen, Mark Ami and Jared, Jay and Stephan, Kevin, Scott and Greg, Mikel, Mario, Javier, Wylie, Darren, Ricky, Howard and Mike, Doug, Brad, Jeff K, John, Keith and Katrina, Levin, Travis, and any of the other Dallas bears that I may have forgotten. You’ve been warm and welcoming. Thanks for making my move that much easier.
Best of the Best: Russell. I can’t give a 2012 wrap up without mentioning the man who has made me the happiest this year. From our first date we had an instant connection and I knew he was someone special. He’s kind and funny, not to mention he’s the best looking man I’ve ever seen. I can’t wait to see what the future has in store. You’re the best Bubba.
