when my dad first moved to St.Helena , he played soccer like all the other Mexicans. there was a taquero who’d come from Napa to cook at the games. his tacos were so good and so popular, the city caught on. they banned his taco truck, and all food trucks, from St.Helena. 20 some-odd years later, St.Helena still only has one food truck, and it’s a bruschetta truck.
we dropped off our applications for the studios at night. I’m super nervous, mainly because I want it so bad. I’ll miss San Francisco but I’ve lived here for 5 years and I work too much to enjoy any of it anyways. I’m ready for a drastic change in my lifestyle.
it’s been two years since we met and a year since we stopped talking and I always miss you but I hope you found a situation that works for you. you deserve someone good by your side. sorry I couldn’t be that person.
nope. I complain about him all the time but I he just needs to grow up. no reason to stop being with the person I wanna be with. like that quote floating around right now. something like, I accept you as you are but haven’t given up on the idea of you changing your ways. only for the better tho.
my mom constantly and condescendingly telling me how AA is my best option and how I should do that aside harm reduction therapy is making it really hard to believe she’s ever supported me or believed in me.
i want to take today to tell you about this google doodle. i seriously doubt many of you will care, but this was an essential part of my childhood.
Francisco Gabilondo Soler (October 6, 1907, Orizaba, Veracruz – December 14, 1990, Texcoco, State of Mexico) was a Mexican composer and performer of children’s songs. He recorded and performed those songs under the name of Cri-Cri: El Grillito Cantor (“Cri-Cri: The Little Singing Cricket”).
the song i’m posting is El Ratón Vaquero and it was always one of my favorites. the songs this man composed were basically nursery rhymes combined with fables and stories with morals, and ugh i’m getting emotional already so please go ahead AND READ HIS BIO ON WIKIPEDIA OR SOMETHING
I had all the Cri-Cri cassettes. this makes me feel so much. I miss my childhood. I miss spending half the year in Mexico.
