Can your laptop handle it?

So ZAch and I were playing ESPN 2K5 last night when a roachdecided to make its debut appearance on my apartment. Debbie and have not seen one for a good year now, so when chulo starts running around, I look at Zach and say, "Man, i don't have my sandals, dude." He looks at me with a "Are you braindead" look and says, "You have all your shoes over here!" (For those who dont know, Debbie's asian culture requires that we and all our guests please remove their shoes upon entering our home).

So grab Debbie's Nike shoe and hammer away at the roach. This guy runs around like a possessed Randy Moss. He jukes left and then right, and here I am wacking away trying to nail him. Then the roach makes a run for one of my couches and gets under it. Well I wasn't having that so I lift the couch, completely disregarding whatever was on it. Zach then informs me my laptop was on the head rest area of my couch and obviously fell over when i lifted it. That's when I lost it. I started again after the roach and finally nailed him to a stand still. After which I way laid him to an abrupt end to his life.

"You little punk!" I started to say to myself. Other not so nice words were in the hopper ready to come out but I decided to restrain myself. I go over and check my laptop. It still works!! It fell from a good 4 feet off the ground and this thing is cruising like nothing happened to it. Sweetness!! How many people can say that about their laptops, HUH? I am definitely recmmending this bad boy to anyone that shops for a PC laptop. I think it's one of the best work horses i ever have owned. And it can take a hit! Like Terrel Owens last night against the 49ers.

Looking for a good laptop? go to www.averatec.com wanna buy it? go to either Best buy or Sams Club to find them. Either online or in person, they'll have it. And they're very affordable, too.

well that's my rant for today. Blessings to all.

Motherland doing its part...

Hector, my brother told me that Mexico was coordinating this but i didnt really think it would get any or much news coverage on it. Mexican President Vicente Fox called for the Mexican Red Cross and the military to coordinate a relief effort that includes a navy ship with vehicles and supplies into the gulf coast of LA. and a two part convoy which consists of medical professionals, food, mobile kitchens for feeding up to 7,000, supplies, and other goodies all packed into a 45 truck convoy. Guarded by MEX and USA people, the convoy is headed up to San Antonio crossing the border at Laredo, TX.

I am just excited to see that Mexico, a country that has had mixed relations with the USA for many reasons (including its border relations and its oil-supply relations) and a country clearly outmatched in regards to financial and military strength compared to the USA, can put all that aside and offer their help in the way they know best...through their people and their cooking! This is why i love my culture and my family roots. We may never be the richest country in the world but in our hearts always feel like we have something to give though it appears we have nothing to give.

I love the motherland, she makes me proud. Please continue to pray for the people affected by the hurricane. BIG UPS ALSO TO SUPER TED AND HIS AWESOME PICS. Also thanks for staying in one piece out there. Debbie and I were worried sick and praying for you while you were in harm's way.

Dios me los Bendiga a todos.
