El queso es old and moldy

Or: Off to jolly old Mexico for more bloody dental work, need more meds.

Reasons We Should/n't Rent out our house, get a gardener and Move to Mexico:


  • Cheap dental, medical and plastic surgery.
  • Housing and food also cost-effective
  • Same distance from parents
  • Said parents might come and visit US.
  • Chance to learn Spanish.
  • No quarantine laws like Hawaii; also no 6 hour flight.
  • Mexican destination weddings increasingly popular.
  • Only 4-6-? hours from Santa Barbara
  • Home of some great musical influences.
  • Inexpensive household help
  • Excellent food, if you know where to get it.
  • Possibility of fantastic tan opportunities.
  • Possibility of skin cancer.
  • "La cucaracha, en la cocina" and "Ay, yaaaay yiii yiiiiiii" are probably the only lyrics I know.
  • Mana.
  • The infamous ene or inyay or however you spell the little curvy thing that goes over the n's.
  • Internet connection possibly questionable
  • Cats not pleased to move
  • Unacceptable crime rates/instability
  • We don't know anyone down there
  • Totally don't get the Lucha Libre/tellanovella concept.
  • Have already invested a lot of time/years starting own business here.
  • Some of the excellent food could make us sick; I don't eat goat, tripe or chicken feet.

If you move all the way down to Cabo, I'll go with you. Truly booming wedding biz down there! and the guacamole...YUM

Hah! I thought I was the ONLY person to ever quote that movie. Brendan Fraser was the bomb. Still is, actually. Don't forget the rest of that line: "...where is the bathroom?"

Pienso que es una idea fantastico para mover a Mexico. Puedo visitar y ensenarte la lengua de español y todo es mas barato. No t preocupes que hay animales pequenas en su cama y la gripe en las calles, Mexico es una país de fiesta!

Oh, mi blog es eaudedeux.blogspot.com ahora, me explico en la pagína.

Peter: There we go, but for the fact that I've already invested 10+ years in the SB wedding scene. V. attractive other than that, though.

Janet...Yo no quiero the guacamole so much...but I'm told I make it preee-tty good. I'd love to go to Cabo!

Chiada: It was on the other day. Simply couldn't help myself. Knew you'd get the reference.

Des: Yo pienso...uhhh...that your Spanish is much, much better than mine. Also...if I come to Vegas...actually, I'm emailing you.
