mexican food, i waited at this place for an hour with my gf. The cook is this huge mexican lady. Real cool people.

I had the americanized stuff. Chips with salsa, chicken fajita wrap deal, and some bean/rice deal. She had the same. A few lime flavored coronas and i'm all set.

Actually, I believe it was from the French. Although, I could be wrong, too.

errr you scare me leonard..

*mexican patriotic music in the backround*
it was in 1862 when 4000 mexican soldiers took on 8000 french/ traitor soldiers and owned them. it was hard for them to slaughter thier own friends and relatives but you gotta do what you gotta do for your country, and for independence. thier liberty and courage was great that day and will always be remembered in our traditions.

now why we party on 05/05 is because us mexicans will never forget who are real friends are and that same event we had the americans come over and help us with this whole ordeal. SAME thing happened with pearl harbor and the persian gulf war, we helped them out with the same amount of force as they helped us back then. that why its a big party cuz like i said, you should NEVER forget who your real friends are.
*end of mexican patriotic music in the backround*

I can't believe that I drank more before I was 18 than now that I am 19. Probably because I have a license now and don't want a DUI on my record.
