It’s not me saying this, no señor. The information comes from a supposedly legitimate media outlet, and I’m nobody to dispute the fact that it’s Americans *and* Canadians who are making my people fat –and not our delicious garnachas or our penchant for Coca-Cola.

Why throw away a perfectly nice painting when you can turn your pandas into Mexican pandas?
Need to turn a Chinese restaurant into a Mexican one?
EASY! Just add some sombreros –and trenzas– to the pandas on your wall paintings, and… boom! You got yourself a Mexican-themed establishment!*
That is exactly what the owners of El Sol Restaurant in Harrisonburg Virginia did –making this already the best thing this blogger has encountered in 2018.
P.S. Did you notice the cacti growing and red chili sprouting from the trees? 🌶

Extra kudos for getting the accent *and* the upside down exclamation points.

On what would have been his 91st birthday, Google is celebrating Colombian Nobel Prize winner and awesome person Gabriel García Márquez, Gabo, as the man once called the greatest Colombian who ever lived was affectionately known.
As this blogger joins the celebration, she is also kindly reminding non-Colombian people (i.e. gringos) of one very important piece of information: #ItsColombiaNotColumbia.
… Oh, and the dude in the aforementioned doodle *is* Gabo, despite the uncanny resemblance to this other colombian.

Sounds about right…
Please update your contacts and –starting today– refer to me as Louder Murkiness, my new, awesome name courtesy of Otter.
It is no secret that Hispanics continue to be underrepresented in the entertainment business (that is, when they don’t call us to play the maid or the mean narcos.)
But some of us couldn’t care less, because there is something far more interesting: The 8-pound, 24-carat-gold-plated statuette that will be handed out at the Academy Awards Sunday night is said to be modeled after Emilio ‘El Indio’ Fernández, a Mexican director –and actor– who used to live in Hollywood in the 1920s.
And while many people still dispute that story, I believe it’s true and will remain true as far as this blog is concerned.
[Oh, and incidentally, El Indio Fernández was actually acquainted with my mom, who was Mexican although not really “colored,” but that’s a whole other story.]
¡Viva México cabrones!
I don’t know who did this, but they shouldn’t be making their own food.
It’s too bad Cosmo Kramer never fulfilled his idea of a cook-your-own-pizza-pie pizzeria. But you can thank Jaime Herrera, of Des Moines, for Happy Burrito, an “innovative” Mexican restaurant where you can build your own burritos. Yes, because really, how hard can this be? Plus, you are in Des Moines, so there’s probably not a whole lot to do there anyway.
But I digress. The point is that this thing is now open and surely pleasing the denizens of Des Moines (even though some of them have absolutely no idea of how to prepare anything.)
