The Truth

I'm a dork. A geek. A big time nerd. The gelled spikey hair might portray a GQ male supermodel, but deep down, I just can't get away from my dorkness. This blog is just further evidence of this. Aside from teenage girls screaming for attention, who keeps an online diary? Look at me, look at me, I'm a dork. Possibly even worse, I'm a dork screaming out for attention.

My sister is getting married next week in the home country and of course I will be there. After the festivities, I'll be there for another seven glorious days of Mexican food, something that New York is getting better at, but still has a ways to go. All other cuisines, New York does better than just about every city in the world, but for some reason, good Mexican is difficult to find, aside from this little tamale stand in Sunset Park. It's a sad day when I make the best menudo within a 1000 mile radius.

During my time in the motherland, I will of course be visiting with friends and in all likelihood playing video games. It's who I will be playing video games with. I will be playing video games with people that I have known for years, but only hung out with two or three times. That's right, video games with my fantasy sports league friends. Double whammy. These are again, guys I've met and might have even played volleyball with a couple of times back in the day, but people that I've only gotten to know since the establishment of several fantasy sports leagues post-moving to New York. They are my online fantasy friends. And we will be playing video games. I'm not sure if I should just shake their hand and give them the stone faced glare that I do so well or if we should kiss cheeks New York style. I'll have to check the online dating sites to see what proper protocol is.

Tall dark and handsome... kiss on cheek and grab ass.

Short, crazy, and well shaven... slap high five and await his smart comment - you follow with ghost face killa.

Brown, shoulder length hair, lives next door... make fun of all the time. He is outside the circle and game for ridicule and torment.

3.5 feet tall, brown hair, hypnotic eyes... try avoid killing him unless you want to be deaf in your closest ear and or then see annoying looks and comments from his creator.

Bring donuts / Dr. Pepper = can't do no wrong... spring for pizza and you may never leave.

That is the best I can do.. may the force be with you.

You may be a dork, a geek and a big-time nerd ... but we love you anyways and can't wait to see you and your beautiful family! By the way, I'm already shopping for Mexican food ingredients. Tacos, enchiladas, homemade salsa and guacamole ... and we might even spring for some tamales from Manuel's! Love, Mom

Don't run away from your feelings. We had a moment back in Bucket 2, don't deny it.
