2007-05-21 - 4:20 p.m.Today must be your lucky day! Curiouoso* has gotton off his lazy ass and updated!
Saturday Arturo flew into town unexpectedly. You might remember that "Arturo" and wine or tequila (or anything alcoholic!) goes together like salt and pepper, puss & boots, Sugar and spice; Wait! We did not go to a strip club in a drunken frenzy! We did sip a little wine, mostly Merlots and a little pinot, 6 bottles worth of little actually.
Sunday it was up early and off to Sedona for a "pink jeep tour" to ancient ruins. (Aren't all ruins ancient? That doesn't include Arturo and I after a little wine thank you!)
We had lots of fun and actually held off wine drinking, except some minor tasting and one bottle which qualifies as a small tasting around us, since I get up @ 3:45 or 4 AM every morning.
I am working locally this week and actually kept busy today. My job consists of getting paid $175. a day for roughly 15 mins of work @ 5AM each day, then hoping and praying something breaks before you fall asleep. I actually considered paying the night janitorial staff to break something so I can fix it the next day, but The best I could come up with was "Basura" on the garbage, so they would take it out, but I guess they don't read either. Anyway, how do you translate that sort of request? Por favor breakee something-o pero no muy mal porque Yo needs to fixo it manana?!
Not going to happen this lifetime.
Speaking of things that don't work, I've driven 4 company vehicles lately, and 3 of them had bad batteries and wouldn't start. The Auto shop guy replaced all the batteries even though 3 of those trucks are going to auction next week. I guess thats how you can tell summer in Phoenix....Your battery goes terminal over night. I thought our own car whose battery took a permanant dive 2 days after our warranty expired was bad, but the van assigned to me isn't 13 months old yet and that battery wouldn't even put out 9 volts.
Hillary Clinton had a thing on her website to vote for which song should be her campaign song, but instead of getting into that, I started thinking about all the Assholes running for president and posting a bunch of songs and matching them to the appropriate candidate. So here goes, and feel free to add your own ideas via notes!
Candidates: There's way too many so...click here
The Who, Won't Get Fooled Again. "There's nothing in the streets
I'll tip my hat to the new constitution
Meet the new boss
Jimmy Buffett, Bank of Bad Habits
"Bank of bad habits
Randy Newman, Political Science
"No one likes us-I don't know why
We give them money-but are they grateful?
Asia's crowded and Europe's too old
They all hate us anyhow
John Meyer, John melloncamp, Joan Baez, and many more...I'm out of ideas and you're tired of reading, so Arturo has cooked up another Gourmet meal of Pork Loin stuffed with an eggplant, garlic, mild red pepper chutney and sourdough stuffing paired with a Sweet Curried Organic Apple Sauce, Lightly Grilled "Cedar Plank" Wild Salmon over a bed of Curried Saffron Rice. There's much more including a selection of fine wines to complement the Chef's handiwork, but I don't want you getting too hungry or too jealous!
Curiouoso* drooling over the mere thought of this repast!|
