Anywhere there are shrimp boats, there are Vietnamese people.

Good point, hadn't connected the dots.

I'm falling victim to your avatar too with posts like this - when it's only a 1 liner, I can't focus on the text. When its a paragraph, I'm OK. Until I'm done reading it. What were you saying?

I'm starting to feel that my breasts are keeping my from being taken seriously.

I don't understand why this video was recommended to me on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8xjM-wJYMCg uhoh.gif

I only use YouTube to listen to music.

There are some shirtless pics in there....at what point in the process does youtube decide that they are unacceptable photos because topless chicks are banned?

I think you can get really good ones in various places throughout the southwest; they just tend to differ a bit regionally. I've had some killer stuff in New Mexico where they like to cover everything in a chili sauce, your choice, green or red. Years ago I had a fantastic meal in Las Vegas, NM, and one at some real old school mountain lodge just can't remember where.

And then there's Navajo Tacos. Only ever come across those in NM and northern AZ. That's a whole next level of greasy goodness.

I can't help but add another quick story - I was touristing in Guatemala at a regionally well known "market" of sorts, Chichicastenango and some guy had what look like an inverted wok (curved side up) over some hot coals and was throwing meat (uhh, chicken?) on it where it sizzled and cooked and eventually slid down to the lip where it was plucked and dropped into a soft taco of sorts (with some lettuce, tomatoes, and local cheese). I'm a semi-adventurous eater, but 3rd world impromptu taco stands at flea markets is not something that, on paper, I would have thought I'd go for. But it smelled so freakin good, plus a lot of locals were eating them, so I joined in. I made sure I got what was already cooking before I showed up (worried that I might get something special for the gringo) - and It was absolutely delicious.

Only later did my group relate to me that all the locals were grinning at me when I was eating. I have no idea why - was that cat, dog, or something else? Tasted like super fresh (as in killed that morning) chicken. Even eating the veggies (often a no-no for the same reason as the water) didn't affect me. Heck, I'd go back for more now - local grins or not.

I had iguana tacos in the Dominican Republic. It did, in fact, taste like chicken.

Hmmm, interesting. I won't turn my nose up at it if it ever comes up again. Heck, it was so good, I might just seek it out - and really freak my fellow travelers out smile.gif

It's because of those Pet Shop Boys music videos you listen to.

So my jag-you-are has one of those alert centers that displays various messages like "low windshield fluid" or as in the case below, "low outside temperature." Last night I had a dream that I was driving and the alert center came on and read "Avocado supplies depleted." And it's strange, because it's true that I don't have any avocados at home or in the car. Even stranger is that I got out of the car and checked in the upper right hand corner of the trunk where the avocados are normally located and there weren't any there. Now, keep in mind that there isn't any actual avocado supply depot in my car. But I was sure there was one last night.



Fucking weird.
