A Crazy Karaoke Night At Sabores' Restaurant
Last Friday's karaoke night at Sabores' Restaurant was a little more crazier than usual (the crazier the better) and, as usual, there were lots of pictures. Most of them I was able to buy back but a few escaped me.
I love hanging out with beautiful girls and Friday was no exception. I get a kick out of all the pictures, but there are some behind the scenes pics that are rarely published. Most of the good pics are taken by the girls and then pored over to make sure they meet everyone's approval.
Most of the pictures I take rarely make the cut because, quite frankly, I'm not very good at it. I'm amazed when one of my shots turns out well.
One picture in particular was of my beautiful friends Iliana and Luly. The picture came out very well. Well, truth be told, most of the girls are mischievous and while the elegant photo featured above is breathtaking, this is a picture of the two when no one is posing.
Yes, my friends, the two elegant ladies featured above rarely "strike a pose" when I take pictures. As one can plainly see, they are playing with fried plantain chips (banana chips).
On another night, they coyly posed with Luly's famous chocolate chip cookies. That is, until when I'm in the picture when, once again, they transform into impish little gremlins. I don't protest though. They make my evenings at Sabores memorable.
The News As I See It: Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders introduced a new bill that would make four-year college tuition free. Which was great news, unless you were the student who was just walking out of your graduation.
Sanders made around $2,000 last year for two speeches and a TV appearance, compared to the $25 million the Clintons made. This makes him the first person in history to run for president just because he really needs the money.

Printable Things I Never Told You: 1) I know five people who are clinically insane. I'm two of them. 2) Your outfit says you work in an office, but your shoes say it might have a pole in it. 3) "Bluetooth or crazy" is a guessing game I play when I see people talking to themselves on the street. I usually guess wrong. 4) Today was so bad, I thought Steven Seagal was starring in it. 5) Nobody was healthier than my vegan, gluten-free, friend Chad until the day that little squirrel beat him to death.....and that's five !
Today's Horoscope: Gemini - May 27th: An Asian person may appear in your life this week. If you're lucky, it will be a Sushi chef. On the other hand, it may be a lovely young woman. But remember, just because her tattoo has Chinese characters in it doesn't make her spiritual. It's right above the crack of her ass and it translates to "beef with broccoli."

The AREA 51 Retirement Home Bar And Grill: A man goes to his doctor's office and says, "I'm sorry doctor, I know this is unusual, but I seem to have lettuce stuck up my ass!"
The doctor says, "Good grief! I'd better take a look."The doctor examines the man and says, "It's even worse and that's just the tip of the iceberg!"
A man is struck by a bus on a busy street in New York City. He lies injured on the sidewalk as a crowd of on-lookers gathers around. The man gasps, "Somebody get me a priest!"
A policeman checks the crowd and there's no priest, no minister, no man of God of any kind. Then out of the crowd steps a little old man.
He says, "Mr. Policeman, I'm not a priest. I'm not even a Catholic. But for fifty years now I've been living behind St. Elizabeth's Catholic Church on First Avenue, and every night I'm listening to the Catholic litany. Maybe I can be of some comfort to this man."
The policeman agrees and brings the old man over to where the injured man lay. He kneels down, leans over the injured man and says slowly in a solemn voice, "B-4. I-19. N-38. G-54. O-72..."
The Hits Just Keep On Coming: A drunk is sitting in a bar having a drink when a beautiful woman sits down next to him. The drunk, seeing opportunity buys the women a beer and proceeds to hit on her. Then, he asks her, "Would you sleep with me for a million dollars?" The woman looks at him and says, "For a million dollars, sure!"
The drunk then asks, "Would you sleep with me for 20 dollars?" The woman is instantly upset and yells, "Twenty dollars, what do you think I am some kind of whore?!" The drunk then looks at her and says, "We have already established that fact, madam, now we're just negotiating the price."
A young couple is out carousing one evening. While driving down the highway the guy says to the girl, "If I go 100 miles an hour, will you take off your clothes?" She agrees and he begins to speed up.
When the speedometer hits 100, she starts to strip. When she gets all her clothes off, he is so busy staring at her that he drives off the road and flips the car.
The girl is thrown clear without a scratch but her clothes and her boyfriend are trapped in the car. He pleads, "Go get help." She says, "I can't, I'm naked." He points to his shoe that was thrown clear and says "Cover your snatch with that shoe and go get help."
She takes the shoe, covers herself and runs to the gas station down the road. When she arrives she is frantic and yells to the attendant, "Help! My boyfriend's stuck!" A drunk sitting nearby looked down at the shoe covering her crotch and replied, "I think it's too late, lady, he's too far in."
Airplanes: offering you the comforts of gas station food and drinks at popular night club prices.
That's it for today, my little chickadees. Remember, don't let maladies and ailments keep you down. I used to be schizophrenic, but we're all right now. I'm heading over to AREA 51 for happy hour.
