This is Bistek al la Mexicana a common dish found many places. There are several places I get this some better than others but all real decent! Kind of a tomato based sauce with generally pretty tender pieces of beef and a fair amount of it. The rice is pretty generic but the frijoles can be something else. This also includes as many fresh made in front of you tortillas you want and brought to you with a smile. Something like this costs around 50-60 pesos or $3. The squeezed as you watch orange juice is 20 and brings the price up a bit but worth it. Nothing in the States I've ever had compares to this not even close plus it'll cost 7-10 smacks. I don't know what I'm going to eat when I return. It will be an adjustment as I do this so much that is go into Puerto Vallarta on the south side and have me a excellent lunch with "real" Mexican food not the slop I get back there. I do not plan on eating out much at all only at maybe three select places. Pricey yes but worth it because it's so good. I threw away so much money last summer eating way overpriced shitty food. Several times the food got thrown away as well. The whole of Mexico is an eating machine I tell you. I'm gonna miss this.

I feel good and and think the higher temps and humidity contributes to that. It's the same every time. After a month or two you realize and say " Hey I feel pretty damn good!"

Just as important I believe the food made fresh with wholesome fresh ingredients as well contributes to that. Get off the bus in town the food smells everywhere make me hungry just like that.


The Cat Aristotelis

The reason this cat is here today may be a very interesting coincidence. I'll need help from fellow cat people to verify this. I'm fairly sure I have seen this same cat before on the
Cheezburger site. If it is not then it is very close to the same and no matter what this kitty is unhappy and would rip someone a new asshole if it gets a chance.

The picture came out of this small album from Bulgaria. I got the link to the album from a comment made this week on the ongoing murder trial saga being played out here at OTC. This thing is not going away and is not yet over even though the shooter one of the women in the album was convicted on the second go around of second degree murder and is to be sentenced middle November or there abouts.

So - if anyone could happen to verify that this is the same cat that would be a huge coincidence and 'ol One Fly would get one of the biggest kicks ever as he enjoys the shit out of stuff like this.


  1. I can't help you identify this wet cat. It doesn't appear to be Bulgarian at first glance but the guy holding it surely read the translation of Cat's Revenge by Claude Balles.

  2. That is funny man. Never seem him before but he sure looks pissed!

  3. Haha. Great post about trying to make sense out of this thing called The Internet.

    However, I'm guessing all wet cats look this pissed.

  4. That is one seriously pissed off cat and SOMEBODY is going to get fucked up in a minute!
