¡Blog-o de Mayo!

There will be no videos today, because I sincerely hope you don't need YouTube to help you waste time on Cinco de Mayo.

You may, however, require a little mood music, so here ya go!


Now get on out there, crack open a can of Tecate ('cause that's the classy way to do it) and shake! those! maracas! You may not be a real Mexican, but you've studied up on the history (and if not, you're about to*); you've earned it!

*For those of you who did not grow up in Texas, it's not your fault. Read up, and then to make up for lost time, I recommend wrapping a tiny square of colored tissue paper around the eraser end of a pencil, gluing the newly shaped paper to a shoebox, and repeating about six hundred times for no apparent reason. (Was there to be a tiny parade? Yes, I think that may have been the reason.) There. It's as if you were sitting in Mrs. Butler's first grade class with me back on May 5, 1993. That was a good day.
