The Best of 2010

Here are a few of my favorite things of 2010...

Best Restaurant Discovery...

Holy cow, Y'all...if you are ever in Atlanta you must eat here! It's not authentic Mexican, it's not Tex Mex, it's like Southwestern/Southern/Mexican. I just call it damn good food! You can visit their website by clicking here. There is one dish not listed on the menu, it's a combo of beans, rice & turnip greens called "The George". If you visit, make sure you ask for it. SO.DAMN.GOOD!

Best Movie...
"Black Swan"? Nope! "The Kids Are All Right"? Nope! "Social Network"? Nope! Nothing against those movies but the # 1 movie of 2010 to me has to be "Toy Story 3". This movie is far from than just an animated kids movie. It touches so deeply. I would even go so far as to say it deserves the Oscar for best movie of the year. It was also the #1 grossing movie of the year with over $ 415,000,000 domestically. WOW!

Best Song...

Michael Buble' "Haven't Met You Yet". I LOVE.LOVE.LOVE this song. It really describes what I'm singing daily to my future husband that I haven't met yet.

Best Video...

There was no better video. PERIOD! I mean Lady Gaga & Beyonce together in a super fun & campy video, what could be better? TOO GOOD FOR WORDS!

Best TV Show...

I love a lot of shows like "Glee , "How I Met Your Mother" and "Modern Family" but "The Middle" edges them all out as my favorite. This show is just so damn funny and reminds me of my life growing up. Patricia Heaton is pitch perfect as the typical suburban mom.

Best NEW TV Show...

If you are not watching "Raising Hope"...why the hell not? Stop whatever you are doing and set your Tivo/DVR. It comes on right after Glee and I know you guys are watching Glee. Stay tuned and check this show out. It is hysterical! And Cloris Leachman as Maw Maw is beyond fantastic and will crack your ass up.

Enjoy your day!

Pat Robertson: Snow Is God's Way of Punishing Americans Who Were Planning to Drive to Do Something Gay

Rev. Pat Robertson sparked controversy in today's broadcast of his 700 Club program when he claimed that God created the blizzard currently battering the Northeast "to punish Americans who were planning to drive to do something gay."

Explaining his theory, Rev. Robertson said, "Because of the bad road conditions the Almighty has made, any gay activities that people were planning on doing will have to be postponed by a day or two."

Additionally, he argued, God shut down major airports in the New York area "so that people who were hoping to fly to do something of a gay nature would have to take a train or a bus, so it might be days before the gay thing they were going to do could occur."

As for the millions of straight people in New York City who were also grounded by the bad weather, the televangelist said, "I think God probably wonders, if these people are really straight, then what are they doing in New York?"

This is just absurd I can't even comment on it except to say...UGH!!

Hump Day Hunk Of The Year

Each week I post a hump day hunk. I've decided I would choose a Hunk of the Year to post on the last Wednesday of the year. This hunk will be chosen from one of my weekly hunk posts. This year it could only be one guy...

On March 29, 2010 he made this statement via his website...
 "I am proud to say that I am a fortunate homosexual man. I am very blessed to be who I am."
I've heard some people say that his coming out was no big surprise. However, for those of us who have struggled with our sexuality, it was a big deal and very courageous.

Here's a clip from his Oprah show appearance this year...

Happy HUMP Day,Y'all

What's Happening

I hope you guys all had a very Merry Christmas. Here in the ATL we received our first white Christmas in 128 years!
My friend took this pic on her deck. Isn't it beautiful! I told her I may have to steal it and use it as my Christmas card next year. I love the green bird feeder with the red birds coming in to feed. So pretty!

Christmas day is also my birthday, so it was super nice to have it snow. It just made the day feel even more special. I turned 42 this year, that's dead in single gay man years. Ugh! At least I'm still cute. Haha j/k

Look what Santa brought me...
It's a 7 quart Le Creuset enameled cast iron dutch oven. I'm in love. I've had several like this but never a real
Le Creuset.  I also got a ceramic Le Creuset baking dish in the same color. Yay!

While I was on vacation I saw, Black Swan...

Every great review I read about this movie failed to do it justice. All I can say is... A-MA-ZING! Natalie Portman will win the Oscar for her perfomance. I also think Mila Kunis will win for Best Supporting Actress.

I better get back to work. I just wanted to say HEY and HOW U DOIN? Hope you all have a great day!

Stem Cell Transplant Cures HIV In 'Berlin Patient'

I just saw this on the Huffigton Post website and had to share this great news...
On the heels of World AIDS Day comes a stunning medical breakthrough: Doctors believe an HIV-positive man who underwent a stem cell transplant has been cured as a result of the procedure.

Timothy Ray Brown, also known as the "Berlin Patient," received the transplant in 2007 as part of a lengthy treatment course for leukemia. His doctors recently published a report in the journal Blood affirming that the results of extensive testing "strongly suggest that cure of HIV infection has been achieved."

Brown's case paves a path for constructing a permanent cure for HIV through genetically-engineered stem cells.

Last week, Time named another AIDS-related discovery to its list of the Top 10 Medical Breakthroughs of 2010. Recent studies show that healthy individuals who take antiretrovirals, medicine commonly prescribed for treating HIV, can reduce their risk of contracting the disease by up to 73 percent.

While these developments by no means prove a cure for the virus has been found, they can certainly provide hope for the more than 33 million people living with HIV worldwide. Alongside such findings, global efforts to combat the epidemic have accelerated as of late, with new initiatives emerging in the Philippines and South Africa this week.

That's So Gay: Harvey Milk

I hate it when people use the phrase "That's so gay" in a negative way. It's usually used to describe something tacky or tasteless. I've decided to take the phrase back and make it positive. This is the sixth in a series of posts I am doing about all things gay.
Harvey Milk

Harvey Bernard Milk (May 22, 1930 – November 27, 1978) was an American politician who became the first openly gay man to be elected to public office in California, when he won a seat on the San Francisco Board of Supervisors. Politics and gay activism were not his early interests; he was not open about his homosexuality and did not participate in civic matters until around age 40, after his experiences in the counterculture of the 1960s.

Milk moved from New York City to settle in San Francisco in 1972 amid a migration of gay men to the Castro District. He took advantage of the growing political and economic power of the neighborhood to promote his interests, and ran unsuccessfully for political office three times. His theatrical campaigns earned him increasing popularity, and Milk won a seat as a city supervisor in 1977, part of the broader social changes the city was experiencing.

Milk served 11 months in office and was responsible for passing a stringent gay rights ordinance for the city. On November 27, 1978, Milk and Mayor George Moscone were assassinated by Dan White, another city supervisor who had recently resigned but wanted his job back. Milk's election was made possible by and was a key component of a shift in San Francisco politics. The assassinations and the ensuing events were the result of continuing ideological conflicts in the city.
Despite his short career in politics, Milk became an icon in San Francisco and "a martyr for gay rights", according to University of San Francisco professor Peter Novak. In 2002, Milk was called "the most famous and most significantly open LGBT official ever elected in the United States". Anne Kronenberg, his final campaign manager, wrote of him: "What set Harvey apart from you or me was that he was a visionary. He imagined a righteous world inside his head and then he set about to create it for real, for all of us. Milk was posthumously awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2009.(Information contained in this blog was taken directly from wikipedia. Read more about Harvey Milk by clicking here).

Natalee Holloway

As most of you have heard, on Nov. 12th a jawbone with one intact molar was found on a beach outside a hotel in Aruba. The jawbone was later confirmed to be that of a young woman. A few days later , dental records for Natalee Holloway were sent to Aruba authorities. Today those authorities have confirmed that the jawbone did NOT belong to Natalee. For her family, the not knowing must be excruciating. In any death, the pain never goes away but I can't imagine not knowing what happened to my child. There is no semblance of closure and the opportunity to grieve properly and move on.

Natalee Holloway disappeared on May 30, 2005, during a high school graduation trip to Aruba. She was scheduled to fly home later on May 30, but did not show up for her flight home. She was last seen by her classmates outside a nightclub in a car with Joran van der Sloot and brothers Deepak and Satish Kalpoe. When questioned, the three men said they dropped her off at her hotel and denied knowing what happened to her after that.

There have been several arrest through the years and subsequent releases due to lack of evidence. Most notably, Joran van der Sloot. He is such a DOUCHE BAG! I mean he is such a major case for me believing in capital punishment. On November 24, 2008, On the Record aired an interview with Van der Sloot in which he alleged that he sold Holloway into sexual slavery. He said he received money when Holloway was taken, and later on to keep quiet. Van der Sloot also alleged he paid the Kalpoe brothers for their assistance, and that his father paid off two police officers who had learned that Holloway was taken to Venezuela. He later retracted the statements made in the interview.

This year he tried to extort money from Natalee's mom, Beth. She informed the FBI and they set up a sting. Joran was paid $10,000 cash and wired $15,000 to an account in the Netherlands, where he lived. They were to pay the remainder of the $ 250,000 after he gave told them where they could find Natalee's remains. He gave false information and was later charged with extortion and wire fraud. He later admitted the extortion saying "I wanted to get back at Natalee's family — her parents have been making my life tough for five years".

On May 30, 2010, Stephany Ramirez was reported missing in Lima, Peru. That is five years to the day that Natalee Holloway was reported missing. Her body was found three days later in a hotel room registered to Joran van der Sloot. He was since charged with her murder and currently sits in a prison in Peru. He originally confessed to this murder but has since retracted the confession. I hope he rots there in that prison. I actually hope he is severely tortured during his time there. He deserves it!
