i lied. i went to folklife yesterday. it was very crowded and smelled of hippies and mud. (a bit like the original woodstock, i would imagine.)
here's some really awful video of kaze daiko doing the taiko drum thing.
personally, i like those vids 'cause everything is happening behind the stools. (ok, really it's just funny 'cause i didn't want to battle dancing hippies to get to a spot where i could take a better video. 'cause believe me. the hippies. they were dancing. they're always dancing.)
and so, having experienced folklife for 30 minutes, i will never attend again.
(kaze daiko was cool though.)
OH!! i didn't mention that i got a REAAAAAALLLLY awesome card from burnt!! (THANK YOU, BURNT!!!!)(i would scan and post it, but i'm not sure if it's ok. and i haven't asked ms. tortilla yet. *hangs head in shame*)
right, this week is FINALLY the bday party, saturday to be precise. so it's cake time. also, i'm making chimichangas, quesadillas, guacamole and cupcakes. but not guacamole cupcakes. yuck.
i'll probably post the finished cake's photo here on sat morning. don't hate me if i post it later that day, ok?
oh hey! while you're here! do you happen to have a good drink recipe that goes well with mexican food? also, can it be made in a large quantities? (cause i don't want to bartend all night. i've got games to play!)
i'm all for making a huge batch of margaritas (and having limes on hand for when i decide to shoot tequila. because, believe you me, i will. bet on it.) but i believe there are some people that don't like tequila. (d? any suggestions? can you drink vodka? leff doesn't want margaritas either.)
thanks in advance for any suggestions!
