Someone post a topic…

Not to be a pooper, but someone needs to post a topic…I think Paco said he had one ready, but it’s been too long with nothing to read on here. I understand due to recent developments; Eduardo having a new job, Paco being unable to see this at work, me being lazy…and Fernando waiting for...

I got a letter from the government the other day. I opened and read it…it said they were suckers.

In the coming weeks, I’m scheduled to depart for Costa Rica. I’m pretty excited, and K knew that my passport, while it served me well for 10 years, was due for renewal. Being the conscious traveler I am, I sent my passport in for renewal in mid November. The lady at the local office told...

WinCo- late night encounter

So last night was time for our family grocery shopping, to make things interesting, I decided to go to WinCo. I went alone. I had to go to the bank first to withdrawal cash, being as Winco, hasn’t figured out yet how to take ATM cards at their registers. SO money in hand, I went...

Why….

This is a response to an earlier story about Winco and Safeway, but I’m convinced Winco has supernatural powers. It seems whenever I go in there an unseen force causes my kids to transform into white trash. They could be on their best behavior all week, and the minute we’re about to cross the threshold...

Robbie in the hood and Little John

I had two other minor fights in my elementary years. FIGHT 1- Robbie S. Robbie was this little Hungarian kid who lived in our subdivision. I never had any issues, or problems with him prior to this. One day he, and I, and some other kids were all out in the street near his house...

Kick ’em when they’re up. Run when they’re down.

Other than the Justin F. incident, I’ve never been in any ‘scheduled’ fights. Technically, I guess that wasn’t really a fight either. Most of my skirmishes were spontaneous in nature, and ended very briefly. They weren’t with a nemesis’s or anything. I never really had a nemesis. The first battle was short lived, against a...

Just like a one-winged gull, Jaimenacho in the 80’s

During my Jr. High school Years I listened to mainly 80’s new wave and alternative music. Several albums that had special places in my heart. 1) The Smithereens- Green Thoughts. This album was just good. I can’t describe it really. I bought it in 8th Grade at the Sam Goody in Reno, Nevada along with...

Jaime Apologizes

I’d like to formally apologize for losing what might very well be one of the most fantastic collections of prank phone calls in the world. I feel terrible. You have to know that I didn’t intend on losing them. They are actually NOT lost, just someplace very unlikely to ever return from. I took the...

CHALK CHALK BERT

One evening Eduardo and I were sitting around our apartment being bored, as we often were during the middle of the week. We both worked a lot, and really didn’t have much time for going out, or doing anything that would hinder school or work the following day. One time we decided we should go...

TUDE looks kind of EGGY

High School for us, as I mentioned was pretty dull socially. We didn’t party; we didn’t do anything like that (mainly because we weren’t cool enough to be invited to parties very often, if at all) Our entertainment usually came from doing some kind of juvenile delinquent behavior. My junior year we had an influx...

is it TRUE… BROWN?

When we started getting older, staying on one street in the subdivision the whole time was frankly, boring. We got older. Our parents trusted us more, and we were allowed to have the entire manor as our stomping grounds. One particular summer day Pecos, Myself, our friend Aaron (brother of Ross), and our friend Ryan...

Anyone else?

Waiting for the others to talk about their cars… what about Ricardo? Antonio? Etc… I am going to post another topic in a few days… but I can think of a lot of great cars that other folks have had.
