Don't Make Me Stay Home. You Know How I Hate Doing Nothing.

by Rainier on May 5, 2010 @ 12:00 a.m. PDT | Filed under MOTD

Still getting back into the swing of things after a gorgeous weekend and a slow Monday. We managed to squeeze in a few more episodes of House and Fringe, so we're almost caught up. The only remaining Fringe episode on the DVR is "Brown Betty," which is some sort of musical, detective noir episode. I'm not quite sure what to expect, but it should certainly be interesting ....

Today is Cinco de Mayo (May 5), which is usually confused with Mexico's Independence Day but actually commemorates the Mexican army's victory over the French at Battle of Puebla in 1862.

(Must ... resist ... obvious punch line.)

At this point, who hasn't defeated the French?

(OK, so I failed.)

We'll be certain to have some extra margaritas in honor of the day. ¡Arriba!
