Wow I haven't posted in over a week. Sorry for that. If anything I've been busy catching up on work as I was out a few days this week feeling under the weather. Not to fret, I am doing much better.

This weekend was quite eventful. My favorite cousin Mari and her friend Paty came to stay w/ us so we ended up at this great BYOB in Wicker Park called Barcello's. It was the bomb and being that it was a BYOB even better. We were a party of 6 and between all of us we practically downed 7 bottles of wine! Here are some moments from the evening.

After that we ended up at El Kallejón, which is basically the old Lola's. OMG was I wasted by the time we got there. After an eventful cab ride, and more drinks, dancing, drag show, etc....wait let me share some pics before I continue:

As you can see we were having a good time. Well let's just say that last Saturday I finally joined the drink & purge club. In my 30 years I have never thrown up from drinking. Well that's not true anymore. LOL! I guess you could say I am a late bloomer and I broke my seal that night. And boy did I!!!! I hear it was rather hilarious. I must say I felt much better after the fact. So sorry I made Paty's cousin Noelia (aka Kelly Ripa) throw up as a result of my puking my guts out at the table! LOL.

I am still cracking up about the whole incident. From what I've been told it pretty much resembled an infamous scene from Stand By Me:

LOL! We were so lucky we weren't kicked out. I think there were too many drag queens running around to even care about us. But what a fun night it was. We must do it again!!!

In other news, I'm still trying to watch Charmed. I'm almost done w/ season 3. This is the season we bid farwell to my dear Shannen Doherty:

Why does everyone hate her??? Yeah she's a bitch but aren't we all? As soon as I'm done w/ this season only 5 more to go! I swear it's going to take me all year to finish. On a good note, one of my other faves replaced her, Rose McGowan.

I found a new blog I wanted to share w/ you all. It's called Electro Queer and I'm loving it! It's just the right mix of current electro pop and retro cheese. I mean Tiffany is his favorite singer of all time, how can you not love it? Check it out!

Ok peeps I must get going. Enjoy yourselves.

Bad Latino movies 1.0

Mi Vida Loca. Enough said. Watch the fine acting in this scene where Mousy confronts La Sad Girl or whatever chola name was popular in the mid 90s. I think their hair evoked more emotion.

But what this scene leaves me pondering...WTF is a leva?????????

I found out what a leva is!!!:

hispanic slang for traitor A term used by Chicano urban/barrio youth to mean that a member of a group has turned his/her back on the rest|meaning that a member of a gang/group has disappointed his/her peers by joining another group/gang.

Un rayo de sol

Do any of you remember Sor Inés? Well she was a singing nun who had one hit in 1996 in Mexico. Produced by José Ramón Flores (the man behind Fey's teeny-bopper hits), her single Un rayo de sol became a favorite on the now defunct Siempre en domingo. Seriously, can you get any campier than a nun singing over euro dance beats? It was awful, and I could not pass it up! So here I leave you w/ a chance to download this forgotten EP:

Sor Inés 1996 EP

Get it while you can kiddies!

In other news, it's friggin' freezing outside, but I can't complain...give me -10º over a nasty hot summer heatwave anyday!

Bear fever has overcome the entire Chicago area. I don't think I've felt this gay since...well...ok I've always felt über gay, but it's at times like these that I realize how removed I am from sports and all their hoopla. The only bears I know hang out in boystown. Grrr indeed.
