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.


What?? A 100K Everyone Should Get 200 At Least

The Department of Transportation issued a fine against Continental Airlines and ExpressJet Airlines for stranding passengers in Rochester, Minn., for nearly six hours last August.

I haven't flown in some time but I know what this is like. A goddamn measly $100,000 fine for perpetrating this crime onto decent people who have done nothing. Let's understand here-this is pure fucking mental torture and I doubt very much if I could have kept it together if I had been there.

Let the CEO and much of the rest of the higher management pay for this and you would see these problems go away very quickly. This is an insult.


  1. OTC- I know you get high but don't necessarily use an airplane to do it. As for 100K divided by 47 this gives every passenger $ 2000 to replace the clothing they shit and pissed in while being held captive overnight. What's your problem with that besides the dehumanizing aspects? Get over your obsession with being treated as a human being and join the rest of the cows, will ya.

  2. I guess I just don't understand the big picture and need to jump on board.

    To be clear - meant 200K for each human tortured and if a employee feel like that they get it too!

  3. OTC- The crazy bishops have spoken and now if you are sent to a Catholic hospital with a life-threatening condition and your family requests no extrordinary measures; tough shit. They are going to suck your bank account dry and then contend extreme pain will bring you closer to spiritual fulfillment. As if that weren't looneytunes enough in many communities they have the only hospital(s). Talk about a captive market. Maybe they really are turning the dead into zombies.

  4. Employees don't have bladders and lower digestive tracks: you must not of gotten the memo. If positive thinking doesn't overcome this (see Barbara Eisenreich's new book) then all employees will have to wear diapers. They will only be allowed to empty them after their shifts. Any pre-existing conditions like eating food will not be covered when shifting one's self. This is what they meant when they said, " Boy the shift really hit the jet fan."

  5. One Fly- You're old enough to remember the SNL skit; Find The Pope In The Pizza. It was hosted by Father Guido Sarducci. Maybe we could start a new skit; Find The Bishop At The Bottom Of Lake Michigan Pizza. It could hosted by a gay guy named Guido. It could held in conjunction with Take Your Bishop Out To Dinner And Come Back Alone Month. Just Saying it could be a Big Hit(s). Give the Cathaholics something to really pray about.

  6. Ano and Duck-we're going to put you guys in charge.
