In response to Bill-806's comment:
DRUGS, DRUGS, & MORE DRUGS !!!!! As I said, nothing good comes out of OLD MEXICO !!!!!!
My wife is Mexican. Are you saying she's not good?
I lived in Mexico City for almost 5 years; it's a wonderful place. The people are welcoming, genuine and actually use less drugs than Americans.
It's breathtaking, isn't it? Assuming Bill-666 is not a smart, funny person pretending to be a total moron - that's a big 66-6, Pendejo! - one needs to accept that not only is he a vile, ignorant, bigot....but he is so pathetically lacking love, validation and attention he actually thinks it's self-actualising when (so many) decent people laugh at him. If he wasn't the Idi Amin of the BDC I'd feel sorry for the fool.
Moon - As I'm sure you agree, your wife's nationality is (outside of proper, valuable, important, cultural interests) meaningless. Tall, short, fat, thin, gay, straight, bi, trans, black, white, Mexican, Spanish, educated working class Boston Irish scum (hello there!)....no decent person would care. Obviously. Sorry for preaching to the decent choir here.
A really bad thing happened yesterday, and I couldn't not think of Bill-666. My current gf, the first English woman I've been involved with in 15 years or so is, IMO, intelligent, articulate, hilarious, beautiful, charming, elegant and, crucially, blind, deaf, digs rock'n'roll and, against all the odds, me.
(Of course, the good stuff I mentioned above is due to the Ghanaian/Jamaican milkshakes she's been quaffing down at the Tall Toad at the end of the road with a couple of bad a$$s demon friends of hers.)
***dimwit clarification*** yes, 666, she's...gasp....black! (her mum's from Ghana, her dad's parents are from Jamaica...and she's as English as one could be.....though she describes herself as "British" (which winds me up, but that's another issue)).
We were politely asked to leave a cocktail bar last night. Any guesses why?
She works for a government agency and is always, IMO, very "well dressed". She's also a good bit younger than I am (white, which is salient). My main job is in banking, but I also have a record label and I'm like the anti-Superman i.e. once the 12-hour days/5-day week is over I revert to the teenage trash I've always been and change into the black Levis (for 30-odd years 505s (the beer drinkers 501s i.e. zip not buttons) but now 511s), black ankle boots and t-shirts in the nearest phone booth.
For a change we decided to have a posh cocktail last night in a well-known, central London hotel bar (no names - we assumed it wasn't the hotel's policy) before putting the pedal down overnight.....and we were "politely" asked to leave because the Bigot-666 equivalent at the hotel bar assumed a young, well-dressed black woman, met by an older, white guy in jeans, was a prostitute.
We burst out laughing, but took down his name and will do our damnest to get him/them fired. Evil, ignorant, bigot(s).
I sincerely hope he/they don't end up homeless, poverty-stricken and dying of hypothermia on the Strand during a March cold snap....I don't wish pain on anyone....but if he/they do? That's exactly what killed off the dinosaurs approximately 6,000 years ago.
No no no, that's not right! Wait! By Jove I've got it! It wasn't Ringo Starr or Rae Dawn Chong that killed off the dinosaurs...it was Raquel Welch and her fur bikini! The dinosaurs were so gay 8,000 years ago her sexuality killed them stone dead on site....a sort of 37C Medusa.
