Christmas Wish List

Well it is that time of year again.  And, honestly I think I have been pretty good.  Below are items that would be on my wish list.  And by wish list I mean praying really hard type of wishing.  Hey, you can’t hold it against me for trying.  Anyway, some of these I will most likely have to gift myself in order to get them.

Wow, how time flies.  I have been away from my blog for quite some time.  The year has been eventful to say the least.  Four weddings and a funeral, literally.

I’ll try to make it back more often.

LAN Party with the gang from DigitalfrAGS

On Saturday, I got to spend the afternoon with the gang from DigitalfrAGS in Aguascalientes, Mexico for a little PC gaming at their monthly LAN party.  Turnout was expected to be around 9 people and by evening time we had twice that in attendance.  In past LANs we had a more than decent turnout of 30+ people.  This one was more last minute.

However, what the LAN party  lacked in people it made up with in pure fun.  This time around I set up my rig alongside my brother in law, whom I invited, as we blasted humans, aliens and predators in AvP2.  Then, for a little comical shoot ’em up action with Team Fortress 2, we played capture the flag.  I had a blast.  No pun intended.  Unfortunately do to other responsibilities, we had to call it night about 10PM but the rest of the guys went on to play until about 4AM.  Maybe next time.


My daughter’s favorite new toys

It is amazing how fast they grow and how much they discover. She recently started to realize that she had feet and now they are one of her favorite past times

Pair of Nerds

My daughter turned 5 months on December 12.  I decided to give her first lesson with the keyboard on my Mac.



I should have her programming by age 3.

Birria at “El Hoyo”

We had birria yesterday at my favorite spot in Aguascalientes called Birreria El Maguey.  We never remember the name and just call it “El Hoyo” meaning “the hole” in Spanish.  Because, up until recently the place was just the that, a hole in the wall.

 The place is like a building in ruins with old photos and some ranch paraphernalia.  From the outside, the place does not get your attention at all but it has, in my opinion, one of the best plates of birria available in Aguascalientes.  I always ask for a plate with mixed meat (dark and light) with “machito”.  Although people would tell you otherwise, machito is not male genitalia :P.  It is fatty meat that has been stuffed into intestine, similar to a sausage, that is served along with the birria.  To top off the dish, it is covered with a red sauce and onions.  Other condiments usually available are oregano (or cilantro), lime, chili serranos… all served with fresh corn tortillas.  

I give the birria at Birreria El Maguey a 5 out 5.
