before i start writing about what i couldn't resist let me tell you about the wonderful weekend i had with the hola gang and my family.
I didn't do much on Friday, just stayed home watched 20/20 and then read my book...middlesex...that i need to finish by the 15th because that's when the book club meets. On saturday, i got up read some more...i'm really behind...and then prepared the pico de gallo. ms. j, aka ms. coordinator, was going to pick me up at 3:30. As usual she was late but that was ok with me because i read some more. We got to Mr. Parol Officer's at around 5:30, he lives all the way in egypt!!!ok he lives in romeoville but it feels like it's all the way in egypt!! it was really nice to see mr. parol officer and mrs. counselor!!! soon after Mr. motorcyle got there, we kept waiting for mr. officer to start eating but it was already late and we are all hungry so we decided to start without him. in the middle of dinner we started to feel guilty so we called mr. officer..."dude where are you?" turns out that the future suegra was in town so he wasn't able to make it. "why didn't you call us to let us know?" "cause it thought i was going to be able to get out of this but i couldn't"...todavia ni se casa y ya esta "trying to get out" !!! hehehehehe. once he hung up we got back to our dinner and we all decided that Mr. officer was definetly the next one to get married!! once we finished eating we started watching t.v. and drinking some wine. Scarface (sp?) was on so we watched it. Throughout the whole movie i tried to imate Al Pacino's "say hello to my little friend" but they would start laughing so i would loose my concentration so i never really would say the entire line. Mr. Parole officer and Mr. motorcycle did a very good imitation!! according to them it's a guy thing...what ever!!!!! i tried practicing all night but they kept telling me that i sounded like a girl, "heelllooooo? i am a girl!!!!!" MEN!!! i had a great time and i can't wait for our christmas dinner!!! on our way home i noticed that Mr. K had called earlier :-) that made me even more happy. i got home at around 1:30 am and my phone rings. it was mr. K calling to let me know that he was on his way home from a club. I was thinking "and i need to this because?" anyway, we had a good conversation and then said our good nights.
On sunday, i got up played with kachito and then headed down to Pilsen. I was meeting my parents and my 3 sisters at the Mexican Fine Arts Museum. As i was getting out the 18th st. train station i thought "this is were i will be getting off once cracked chancla opens her bookstore"....which will be pretty soon ;-) i made it to the Museum and i see my daddy and the first thing he tells me is "por hoy decide hacer un turista, haci que yo nose nada de chicago" i thought that was cute!! we were there for a couple of hours. Mom and Dad seemed to really have enjoyed the dia de los muertos exhibit!!! my older sister, whom i consider my second mom, was showing me the things the ofrendas had, she explained to me how some of the things were used. i knew most of it but she seemed to really be enjoying herself telling me all those things that i just let her. we all went to the little shop, my brother in law was having fun with the toys they had, "esto los vendian en el tiangis de cuitzeo". yeah they had a good time!! Afterwards we headed down to cafe ba ba rriba! boooy did we laugh at the restaurant!! My daddy kept doing the spanish accent throughout our entire stay at the restaurant. it was soo cute!! we got an english speaking person so my daddy and my mommy got to speak english. We ordered some sangria...i thought about mariposa and santiago ;-)... or as my daddy kept calling it all night "thangria de valenthia". I was so happy to see both my parents be so happy!! my daddy's b-day is coming up so we decided to sing him happy birthday while we were there "grathias, muchas grathias" was my daddy's response. we couldn't stop laughing!!! i got dropped off at my place at around 6. i started reading my book but i couldn't really concentrate so i decided to call Mr. K, "watcha doing?" "i bought some new computer gadgets so i'm trying to put them together, want to come over to help me out?" do I want to come over?!?!?! hasta la pregunta es necia!!! We worked on the computer thingies for a while but never got it to work so we stopped. Then we watched a movie...something with angelina jolie forgot the name of it...AND then...aah i couldn't resist!!!! i ended up spending the night!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
