Volver opens in Chicago today...finally!!!!!. I am so excited to go see it, most importantly because it marks the return of my favorite Chica Almodóvar, Carmen Maura!

So it got me thinking...since I am such an Almodóvar fan, what are my top 5 Almodóvar films? Just off the top of my head:

1. Mujeres al borde de un ataque de nervios (Women On The Verge Of A Nervous Breakdown)
2. Pepi, Luci, Bom y otras chicas al montón (Pepi, Luci, Bom and Other Girls on the Heap)
3. La ley del deseo (Law of Desire)
4. La flor de mi secreto (The Flower Of My Secret)
5. Tacones lejanos (High Heels)

If you can't tell I tend to like his 80s films and early 90s. I almost feel like 5 is not enough? I wanted to include 'Kika', 'Atame', 'Entre tineblas' and so forth. I am really looking forward to tonight's showing, I hope he doesn't let me down.

Sore loser

The other day I noticed I had what looked like a cold sore on my lip. I hadn't got one in 2 years! It sucks, it's like the size of a dime! Ok not really but it sure as hell feels like it. I'm not vain or anything, it's just more uncomfortable than anything.

Enough w/ that. I have to thank my baby for nurturing my bad taste and purchasing me the following:

And to think he only paid $2.99 for it!!!! What a crappy mid 90s syndicated TV show! I love it!!! It's so awful and girly, 2 things I just love :) Some of you may recall this was based on the popular series of books of the same name, Sweet Valley High. I never actually read the books. I think it was because I was a little embarrassed, yeah that's shocking but even I had to draw the line somewhere! Though I did read a gazillion Nancy Drew books.

So guess what's going on in 13 days???? The Exposé reunion show!!! I'm so looking forward to this. I am so ready to queen out and scream at the top of my lungs!!! Exposé is my favorite girl group of all time! While I love the many knock-offs (The Cover Girls, Sweet Sensation, Seduction, Pajama Party, etc.), they can't hold a candle to these gals. Did I mention it's a midweek show and I even took days off of work to go???!! But the best part is that we get to go to Bryant's afterwards! If there is one thing from Milwaukee that I could bring to Chicago it would be Bryan'ts, my favorite bar ever!!! I'm also looking forward to seeing my cousins, and not to mention the fact that I'm also going to be meeting my childhood best friend up at the show, whom I haven't seen in probably 10+ years.

I'm headed off tonight to look at a few places to see about having my bday bash at. Wish me luck. January is approaching sooner than we think!!!!!

Friday I went w/ my Milwaukee Sister to watch her man perform w/ his dance troupe, Luna Negra. It was a great show and as usual the Sistas M had a blast. You think we were two 12 year old girls the way we can't stop giggling. As always it was a joy to hang out w/ you my sistah!

So Saturday I finally got around to painting the living room! I found these funky pillows the last time my mom was in town and knew I had to decorate around them. This was the result:

If I must say so, it looks hot! Maybe it's time for a change in careers. It's my inner interior designer...or I'm just that gay. Yeah, like I even have to think about that one! LOL.

We had a nice dinner last night @ Puebla and got tipsy on margaritas. We ended up at Circuit afterwards. It was nice. I'm still working on a locale for my infamous upcoming bday bash. Wish me luck.

Thanks again to everyone who was concerned for our baby Chus. He had his stitches out last Saturday and seems to be doing fine. Like I said earlier we are just awaiting some final lab results to see what cause the stone, etc. Otherwise he's being super hyper and active as usual. I've even noticed he's being more playful w/ other dogs. Something that he sometimes tends to shy away from. I am so glad my baby is back to normal :) Poor thing's had one too many operations already. Santa needs to bring him something extra special this year :) Even if he's a spoiled brat!!! Any ideas?? Last year he got his very own cabbage patch kid doll (we named her ginger as she's a redhead)...but the poor thing looks like chaka khan now! Miss thing got a fro'!!!!!

So I tittled this post TQM, in honor of my new favorite song. It's called Te quiero mucho and is by a new singer from Columbia named Naty Botero. Rob was like She sounds like a trashy version of Bebé! Hey I love trashy!!! Anyhoo check out her official myspace page. Chava was unable to find it at mixup, maybe next time? I think you'd like her, she's fabulous! While I'm at it thank you so much Chava for getting me my CDs while you were in Mexico. Though they have yet to arrive, I thought I'd publically thank you! I love you hard!!!!! Sorry to veer, enough with my ranting and is the video which is trash-tastic!!!!!

Tonight I am going w/ my Sista M to see his man dance. It's about fucking time I get to meet him. He has to meet the Sista M requirements.

My friend from work took this pic from the Belanovaconcert @ the Green Dolphin. I enjoyed the show, but I agree w/ Eddie on a lot of his complaints, I have to say I did enjoy their performance. My biggest complaint though was the crowd. I don't think half of those people even heard a Belanova song before. What a shame. Pun intended.

Ode to Joey

Can we just take a moment and talk about how friggin' hot Joey Lawrence is??? I know Mario López is also on Dancing With The Stars, but I just can't over Joey!!! He's always been hot, and even I can even get past his Humboldt Park eyebrows, but my god is his body hot! Holy shit, his ass could feed a third world country it's so juicy! Damn! Someone bring me some ice to cool me down...

So let's all drool together:
