I know a lot of you are fans and are looking forward to the movie, so give me an idea of how you think would be the best way to give away these tickets. Por mi, yo los invitaría a todos, pero I don’t think they’d have enough room for all us at the AMC Studio 30… LOL! I’ll do another post very, very soon (like probably later tonight) to let you know how we’ll be selecting the ticket winners, but I do want your input to make this as fair as possible, so please leave your comments below!...

Would You Vote For Me? | mexicanismos | Scoop.it
My blog has been nominated for an award!! I’m so excited!

So my wife was out to lunch with one of her sisters and she came across this contest, the 2011 Houston Web Awards. Without telling me, she went ahead and nominated my humble little home on the net for one of the categories: Best Personal Blog, and well, the news was very well received when she finally sent me an email with the link to her nomination. I haven’t the slightest idea how fierce the competition is, or if Juan of Words actually has any chance of winning in this category, or any other one for that matter, but just the idea of gaining any recognition for all my hard work is quite flattering and exciting to say the least.

And here is where YOU come in… LOL! I generally don’t like to ask for things like this, but hell, I really would like to win! It would be fun. So, if you would PLEASE, follow the steps below and vote for my blog as the “Best Personal Blog” in the 2011 Houston Web Awards (ANYONE CAN VOTE)!

Huevoniando: The Dog Days Of Summer | Houston Chronicle | mexicanismos | Scoop.it
Chron.com - The dog days of summer are finally here! Tiempo para hacer absolutamente nada… or at least that’s what it meant for me growing up. My brothers and I would stay up as late as we wanted, or until my father would get tired of hearing us, and the television, and yell at us to go to bed, and wake up as late as we wanted to también. Well, not really. After 10 a.m. my mother would automatically come into the room and just start yelling at us to “get up!”

¡Ya levántense! Ya es bien tarde.

¿Cómo van a quedarse en la cama todo el día?

No puedo creer que no piensen hacer nada…

A ver aquí hay muchas cosas que hacer… levántense y pónganse a limpiar la yarda.

Ayúdenme a barrer, limpien el garaje, que hay bastante tiradero ahí
