Hello people. Yes yes today is not the fifth but currently I am at a cinco de mayo parade thingy. It just kinda of a bunch of stands. A band. Soccer game. But first the stands are nothing but food stands. Just tacks. A few overpriced toys stand. The band is good. It's just a random Mexican one. The soccer game was disappointing. It was a street game but with a ref... And nobody were doing tricks. I was expecting to see a nutmeg. I'm just trying to say I was disappointed . It was nothing like last time. What are you people doing for cinco de mayo? Did any of you guys go to a parade thingy?

I love Miracle Whip as much as the next guy, but I was not aware that the condiment had an entire day devoted to it. Crazy.

Man, I feel bad for having to look up what Cinco de Mayo is.

Does anybody realize that nobody in Mexico actually celebrates 5 de Mayo?

As the local mexicano here .. I can atest to this and we do not celebrate it at all , we just remember the day but it ain´t no holiyday, and for those who do not know what the fuss is about is the day when Mexico repelled off and invasion from France at the state of Puebla in 1862.

Cinco de Mayo also happens to be my birthday. Having a birthday on a drinking holiday tends to make things interesting.

It was a holiday? Hmm...unfortunately, IT companies don't seem to care since we didn't a holiday.
