Friday Fives

1. If you could suddenly speak one language fluently (that you don't currently speak) what would it be?


2. If you were to suggest a foreign film, that you really enjoyed, what one would you suggest?

Como Agua para Chocolate. This film (Like Water for Chocolate) isn't just one of the best films in the Spanish language, it is one of the best films ever made. Ever. Netflix it, and you will thank me. Don't worry, it has subtitles. The story is so richly and beautifully told, you'll not need them (the subtitles) in time.

3. If you had to call another country home (other than the one you currently live in) what one would you choose?

Mexico - the happiest place in the world for me

4. If you went out to buy an import music CD, what one would you buy?

import music... meaning... foreign language? I would have to pick up more Orishas discs. I have 'A lo Cubano' and it is amazing. Like a Wyclef Jean disc, this CD makes parties happen.

5. If you were to chose an ethnic dinner, what would it be?

Well, I might say Mexican. Growing up and living in the Southwest as I do, Mexican food is as indigenous to me as wonder bread and mayo. So, I would say middle eastern food... like gyros and falafel. Yummy. In fact, as you read this I am up at DU eating at Pita Jungle. The best gyros anywhere on the planet!

administrative update

Don't you just love the sound of that? Are you getting all creamy in your undies? I figured you might. I have made a few changes to the site, all good, and mostly from your feedback. The first exciting news is that you now have access to my archives. It is down there on the bottom left. Please be kind, as my early HTML skills were terrible.

Nextly, some images on the left were added. If you were using Mozilla's Firefox, you saw them all along. However, if you are using Explorer... you are just noticing them now.

Lastly, I have changed the comments section to make it easier for you to post. I got rid of that annoying ticketmaster like verification thing. Now, any yahoo can post a comment (hear that, Grainger). Thanks for reading, and peace!

More interesting than that

Know what I think is lame? People who use their blogs or sites to talk about their dogs or kids. Or... lives. Seriously, that is the pinnacle of both lameness and narcicissim. First rule of writing, don't be a Jean Teasdale. That being said, you should know my dog can read.

How do I know my dog can read? Because this weekend he ate my eyeglasses. You may remember last week, I confided in you the fact that I have a very smelly dog. I think that was about Thursday. On Saturday I woke up to no glasses.

See, when I wake up I grap my glasses off the night stand first thing. It is what I have done for 15 years now. I could be asleep in a ditch with hobos, but I would always have my glasses at hand. On Saturday morning I reached over and they were gone.

You may remember the next scene from Scooby Doo, but it is true. I had to look for my glasses. I can't see without my glasses to find them. So, I was on my hands and knees crawling around like Velma looking for them. I found them, and they were pretty much destroyed. Thanks, Rufus. You made your point, and I apologize.
