Did I miss the cut-off??? No worries if I did but I've been a grading fool all night. All these Spanish tests!!! I completely lost track of time. I'm going to give it a shot anyway. I would probably never use them. My dad would and what he would make I can't say, but I can definitely say that it would be delicious. I am partial to the Chili Pepper Red. Right now, my favorite word to add -ito to is sobrino.

It's so hard to pick just one. There were so many!! I guess I'll have to pick the first one that came to me. I LOVED "Where the Red Fern Grows" by Wilson Rawls. Definitely one of my favorites (And yes, the main character's name was Billy, but that's not important right now). :)

Jonathan was right. His hair was totally epic. I miss the days when all I needed was bedhead or something similar. Now I have to spend an hour washing that grey right out of my hair. Epic hair now takes too much work.

My dad made the best picadillo just the other day...oh so good. We'll have to try it with the Bacardi. For the record I have no interest in how much sodium it has in it - wine, rum or otherwise. You mentioned in an earlier post that you're never brave enough to order even the simple Cuban dishes in a restaurant. If you're ever in Baltimore, check out Babalu's: http://babalugrill.com/ My uncle (and Godfather) Esteban de Castro owns it. It is AUTHENTIC Cuban food. The first time I ate there it brought me to tears - like I had my great-grandmother cooking for me again. Have faith. As far as being a bad mother...please, One of the best things in the world is a mother's cooking ;) Besos, Bilito P.S. Thanks for quoting one of my all time favorite movie lines. I've made it my facebook status.

Lucy, I loved math but I totally relate to feeling of brain-death. I also totally love the calculators with the big, clanking buttons. Reminds me of typing away on my old Commodore 64. And Amy is right, you're adorable. SUUUUURRRRGGGEEE!! (I don't know what that means but what the heck).

No she did not. That is low down and dirty.

I LOVE IT! I won't give all my throws to the kids this year so I'll have lots of beads to send Sheila for next year's Carnival tree. Now she needs shamrocks, empty Guinness bottles, cabbages and potatoes to decorate it for the next holiday. I like ody's Lucky Charms idea too. I wonder if I have any of the beads from last year's St. Patrick's Day parade...

*Sigh* Mario, she was supposed to share...but now she'll just have to order another one. Kikita, while Randazzo's is my favorite (www.kingcakes.com), Haydel's is really good too (www.haydelbakery.com) and they have the best prices for what you get in the box. Have a party and take lots of pictures so I can blog about it! And please, please put the beads on Sheila's tree to ward off the bad luck she is bringing upon you all!!! ;)

Laissez le bon temps rouler, Amy!!! You have found the baby and are Queen for the day. Live it up, Your Royal Highness. You're hosting the next King Cake party. I'm glad you enjoyed it!

LOL. Keep the tree up all ready!! I'll send you some beads as gris gris against the bad luck you bring upon yourself!

Sheila, I'm with Amy and Marta on this one. Twelfth night has passed. Regardless of when you put it up, you're only other option is to decorate it for Mardi Gras, but that might just confuse people on the West Coast. We put a tree up on Christmas Eve at my parents' house and then took it down on January 6th. Time to let it go before the bad luck sets in... Love ya! :)

There's nothing to forgive. I know you'll write when you can. It's always worth the wait. I'll pester Amy to post something while your busy with other projects. :)

Yay! Kikita on facebook, Why can't I find you? Search for me (Billy de Castro) and add me as a friend. I'm like the 5th one down when you search my name. Be sure and include the space between the "de" and the "Castro."

I have also chosen not to subscribe to cable. I would not get anything accomplished and I know it. At least in your neighborhood you can put an antennae outside without getting it stolen :)

Have a great trip! I can't wait to read about it. Thanks for the birthday wishes, Kikita. It's been a great day spent with family and friends and I had a lot of Cubans yelling "La edad de Cristo!!!" That would be because I turned 33. I didn't realize what a special birthday it was. Love from New Orleans!
