Ok. No more traveling… for 2 months. Things went pretty fast in Costa Rica. I didn’t have a whole lot of time to do much, but that was cool since I spent it all with family. My reason for the trip was to attend my cousin’s wedding. So with such a big occasion I got to see most, if not all my family there. Occasions like that are rare for me, so I enjoyed it.

Evelyn & Me

Not to get all sappy or anything, but there is a special place in my heart for my cousin, Evelyn. I didn’t grow up with cousins all around, since they were all in Costa Rica and I grew up in the states. But whenever I would meet up with her, she made me feel welcome and always put up with the bad Spanish I spoke. I can only imagine how annoying it must have been for her to commmunicate with me. As for her as a person, you won’t find many people out there with a bigger heart. I am thrilled that she and her new husband Frank are starting a new life together. And I’m glad I was there to see the ceremony. I wouldn’t have missed it for the world.

Cerveza!

I was able to bring back a few things. Namely some cigars and Costa Rican beer called Imperial. But when you say Imperial, say it with some latin flavor. Sound it out like, Im-pur-ee-all! I think it’s good and I’m not a huge drinker. But my buddy Jay is. His family is from Shiner, TX. Home of the Shiner brewery, and he loves the Imperial beer. So someone who knows his beer likes it. And trust me when I tell you, Jay knows his beer. So It must be good! Anyway I brought over some. So let’s see: Costa Rican Cigars. Cuban cigars. Costa Rican Beer. How do you say “poker night” in Spanish?

And just for the hell of it, here is a link with reviews on Costa Rican beer. Kind of old, though. http://www.realbeer.com/nmvbp/rev_cr.htm

For the record, anyone out there can produce a video like this about any team in the NBA. It’s just part of the game. I am forced to post this because of the nauseating love affair the media and basketball world is having with the Phoenix Suns right now and showing the Spurs as villains.


You shouldn’t be surprised. It’s playoff basketball. And the Suns are doing what they need to do to win. Until a ref blows a whistle to stop it, why should they? But like I said, anyone out there can make a video showing the Spurs doing some acting jobs and committing hard fouls. So that’s that. Hopefully the series ends tonight.

Today's Deep Thought

  • I don't remember much at all from when I was born, except for the bright lights and being held upside down and being slapped hard on my bottom. Also, I remember thinking the doctor had a funny mustache, and when I grew up I would never have a mustache like that.
