That's now two people who have wished me a happy Mexican Independance day. I thank you, but I feel I should let you all know that Independance Day is September 16th.

Today is the day we beat the French. And you guys use it as an excuse to get drunk.

(Although, I am told there is something called Steak-o de Mayo that occurs today as well. I feel it must be checked out. In the name of Science.)

Dude, that better not involved Steak and Mayo, because that's gross.

I am all for steak though.

Spain. It's why I speak Spanish instead of English or French.

Oh. Spain's in Europe, though, isn't it?

Higher test scores my ass.

Yes. Once upon a time a Spainard named Hernan Cortes came to Mexico when it was full of Indians, gave them all smallpox and slaughtered or ensalved the rest, and colonised Mexico and everything else on the southern end of the continent.

After living under this for a while, the Mexicans revolted and kicked the Spanish out. Then the French decided to conquer us. We kicked them out too.

Oh. Huh.

Ok, so I'm not real good at history. I have other skills.

Clearly we should have a study session. Learn about each other's cultures.

In the name of Science(tm), I believe I will happily patronize an excursion to this rumored "Steak-o de Mayo" through the providing of transportation for such an important cultural event.

Last year, my mom's boyfriend of the week kept saying that I should drink with him.

Funny thing is, we're Cuban. Not Mexican. ;)

It's Tuesday! Where's my green sky?
