Random happenings at new home

None of these items are related but had me thinking, "I'm blogging this."

Erin's Index finger:
Erin was playing with Six (the cat) tonight and brushed her finger by his tooth cutting it. And for the rest of the night she's keeping her finger pointed. It prompted me to make jokes like, "Who's the handsomest man in the world?" "Where do you want to go next?" and "Are you staying alive?" (*see below) Obviously all very funny.

La Costa Mexican Restaurant:
On Cinco de Mayo Erin and I wanted to find a Mexican restaurant to celebrate the non-American holiday. Without too many options to choose from, most restaurants were already packed. So we ventured to downtown Tacoma to try the Mexican fare. I pass this particular restaurant on the way to work. When we entered we weren't terribly sure why, but it felt like the kind of place where the men are men and so are the women.

Dancing Excercise Lady
Outside our balcony every morning, on the street there is a lady that walks with her dog while she listens to her IPOD. Not only does she listen, but she sings along. Mostly they're top 40 hits. As she walks she stretches her arms every direction, almost making it look like she's dancing down the sidewalk. Her dog, a golden retriever, has a leash on but the woman doesn't cary it; the dog does, in it's mouth.

That's all for now. Talk to you next time.

*When dancing to the Bee Gees' song "Stayin' Alive" you point your finger up and down.

Cinco de Mayo is ONLY an American holiday. The hispanic community celebrates the 12th of September. See what you learn teaching in Mexico, I mean Tustin for all those years.

Cinco de Mayo celebrates the victory of the Mexican army over the French sometime in the 1800s. I learned that teaching right here in good old North Carolina.
Whenever I clean the house, I put on Tommy's ipod and dance all over the house while I dust, vaccuum, clean windows etc. It sure makes it much more enjoyable.
