Happy Cinco de Mayo

Although I am not Mexican, I did grow up around the Mexican culture, it’s very similar to my Guatemalan culture. Growing up in California, I was exposed to this celebration yearly. I really enjoyed it, it had always been a very festive holiday. You would see colorful decorations all around, in school, shops, just about everywhere. There was music, dancing, costumes, parades, and a lot of tequila and beer hehe, the same in Los Angeles just on a much larger scale, specifically on Olvera Street in Los Angeles. Olvera Street get’s really packed on weekends if Cinco de Mayo falls on a weekend, during the week it’s a bit slower as any other major holiday. The food has always been so good. It’s one of my favorites! Cinco de Mayo is celebrated all over the United States, outside of the US apart from Mexico, I don’t know. I’ll leave you with a video, with some celebrating going on from a past Cinco de Mayo.

As for myself, the only celebrating I’ll be doing is at home. As it’s a weekday, and I don’t know anyone in Massachusetts apart from William and his family. So it’ll be us doing a little Cinco de Mayo celebrating here. Not much, but it’ll be fun. Mexican food and corona’s tonight woohoo!!! Anyway this is short and sweet, Happy Cinco de Mayo everyone, be safe and don’t drink/text and drive. I’ll leave you with another Cinco de Mayo video.

Happy Birthday Jackie!

Well I have been gone a few days, sorry I meant to blog sooner. So today is my sister Jackie’s birthday. She is living in California, and I am missing her very much today. I sent her a birthday text early in the morning so hopefully mine was the first yay lol. So today, we watched part of the Bruins hockey game, it was great, they went into overtime and then shoot out, that was fantastic, in the end we had a victory yay. The Boston Red Sox play today as well, last I seen we are winning. Unfortunately it’s an away game, so I can’t hear it on the radio, and I don’t have a TV in the room I am in, and I like to keep the door closed. I would turn the TV on in the other room, so I can hear it, but I don’t know if that’s a good idea. I’ll pop over there, turn it on and see what the score is as of 4:41 pm. They are a the top of the 8th, Red Sox are winning 8 – 3 against the Kansas City Royals! Gooo Red Sox!

I have been doing pretty good on eBay I’m proud of that. I try to list something every day, but it does take a lot of time to get together the information you want, and photos and such. When another item didn’t sell, I need to go back in there and relist again. Eventually I feel all my items will sell I need to have a positive out look on something like that.

This weekend we seen a few films, let me see *thinks* oh yeah we seen Leatherheads, that was a silly film but I really enjoyed it. I’ve seen it before, but always liked it, so thought why not! Last night we seen Bad Lieutenant, omgosh that was just a weird film, seriously weird! They had a lot of great actors in it, Nicolas Cage, Eva Mendes, Val Kilmer, Fairuza Balk (always felt she had a creepy look) :silly: Ahh well it’s probably just me. Oh yeah the Red Sox won 8-6, that was a close game, but I’m glad my Red Sox won yippie! Ahh I think I’ll go now, I’m trying to list a few items. Hope you all had a great Sunday, have a wonderful week.
