I did this post last year and it was super fun! Here’s a quick rundown of our faves from 2020 as well as our words or advice for 2021. Happy New Year everyone!
Favorite Book: The Kitchen House by Kathleen Grissom, Daisy Jones & The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid. I read the former and listened to the latter. In hindsight, I should have read Kitchen House and listened to Daisy Jones. If you get DJ, definitely go audible.
TV Show: Queen’s Gambit (Netflix), The Real Housewives of Potomac (Bravo), What We Do in the Shadows (FX) If you watch anything, check out that last one! C.K. and I both enjoyed it. I believe you can get it on Hulu.
Movie: Palm Springs, available on Hulu. This movie is so charming. And it set some pretty major records for film festivals.
Word for 2021: Childlike
Favorite TV Show: Big Brother All Stars on CBS
Favorite Book: Making Money by Terry Pratchett
Favorite Meal: Asian Pork Ramen in our slow cooker. C.K. was the king of slow cooked meats during the pandemic. He loved this dish and while it was good, the rest of us didn’t really eat too much of it.
Favorite thing about 2020: Moments around our firepit in the courtyard
Proud moment of 2020: Performing for the New York Modular Society
Word of 2021: Dominate (same as last year)
Toy: Super Mario Lego sets and his Stadia gaming console
Video Game: “I don’t have a favorite. I love all my games equally.” He’s going to be a great dad someday.
Book: Usagi Yojimbo #7 (graphic novel)
TV Show: Animaniacs reboot on Netflix
Wish for 2021: Let’s end racism.
Toy: American Girl doll. (She named it Angela. I love that the doll is prob Italian.)
TV Show: Ouch on Netflix
Best part of 2020: Christmas
Advice for 2021: “We should all still be social distancing, I think.”
Word for 2021: Share
And now…the pets. We can’t forget them.
Biggest accomplishment: Still conquering that one step on the patio to get to the grass. #hipsdontlie #stillgotit
Food: Anything really
Best part of 2020: The puppies now have kennel time everyday.
Favorite thing to do: Start sassing the nice lady for my 4pm meal at 1:30 pm everyday. I will wear her down.
Advice for 2012: “If I’m still on the couch and no one is in the living room, please come get me down.”
Nigel & Magnus (1yo)
Favorite thing to do: Steal underwear (Nigel) & Eat mulch (Magnus)
Favorite thing about 2020: The humans are always home!
Least favorite thing about 2020: Kennel time. Nice lady forces us to take naps. We love the security of the kennel but resent the steal bars of oppression. Also least favorite is delivery people and their attacks on the front door with sounds and boxes.
Fave Song: “Mood4Eva” by Beyonce
Fave Book: Codependent No More by Melody Beattie
Fave chew toys: used tissues, Barbie shoes, Misha feathers, larger pieces of mulch, corners of windowsills
