Sweet Land of Liberty

Questions asked of me while in Beanerland:

1.) "Are you afraid to live in the U.S.? It seems like the "white" people are always killing the Mexicans and "black" people just because of their skin color. Is this true?"

2.) "How is the economy holding up in the U.S. after the destruction caused by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita?"

3.) "Does everyone in the U.S. own a gun?"

Questions asked of me upon returning to the Grand ol' U.S. of A.:

1.) "Did you eat lots of tacos?"

2.) "Did you drink lots of tequila?"

3.) "Where's your pinata?"

Viva Mexico!!!

Yeah, yeah...I haven't updated my blog in like 20 years. Get off my back already. Home girl has been very busy working, playing, and trying to squeeze in some sleep here and there, which has proven to be VERY difficult. Not that I don't have problems falling asleep. Sleeping is my favorite hobby, only second to Guy #6. But between work and hobby #1, sleeping has become non-existant in my life. And for anyone who knows me in real life, they know that lack of sleep makes me very very grumpy.

Here's an example of my grumpiness:

Supervisor at work: "Good morning, Merry Widow. How are you today?"
Me: "I AM SLEEPY AND I'M GRUMPY. I hope you don't expect me to cure cancer today."
Supervisor at work (looking scared because I'm usually pretty cheery): "Um, is everything ok?"
Me: "If by 'ok' you mean that I am tired and grumpy, then yes. Everything is ok."

And no, I didn't get fired. But I did take a nap during one of my meetings.

ANYWHO, I'm leaving for Mexico City tomorrow to help my abuelito (that means grandpa, for all you gringos out there) celebrate his 80th birthday. We're gonna get our fiesta on, full Mexican style. You know, like with tortillas and stuff. So I'll be chillin in beaner town for 10 days and when I get back, I have exactly 4 days to pull TWO whole power point presentations out of my big J-Lo butt so that I can impress the big wigs at work. Good times.

So until then, I leave you with a few topics to discuss amongst yourselves:

1.) Ways to make me not be obsessed with Guy #6.
2.) Reasons as to why I should visit Guy #3 in Ft. Worth for his birthday, even though he never bought me a birthday present like he said he would.
3.) Nick Lachey & Jessica Simpson: Are they breaking up?
4.) Global Warming

I also leave you with some possible future blog topics that I may or may not post:
1.) Why I should not drink anymore.
2.) Why are guys scumbags??? (No, not Guy #6...I had a VERY scarey experience with some jerk wads that decided to try to assault me at the bar last weekend.)
3.) Getting motivated to go back to school.
4.) My crazy (but in a good way) family.
5.) The joys of being beaner.

Peace out, blogland. I'll be back before you can say "yo quiero taco bell."

Love,
M-Wid

Hi, Jessica!!!

You, of course, know that I'm gonna start self-censoring even more now...no more posts about Guy #6.
