New To Denver

So yesterday before all of the stuff in the basement Nataly calls me and tells me to turn on the radio and tune in to 95.7 so i do and i almost died when i did.

95.7 use to be KISSFM but now it's LA MEGA which is the hottest raido station in New York. I could not believe that they were playing merengue on a radio station in Denver. I was so excited, I finally have some real music to listen to. I can turn the radio on again. Yay! I am so happy. So i will be able to buy plataino chips at my local grocery store without having to go up hill both ways in the snow barefoot.

In other new's Miami Guy is suppose to come to Denver in May for a friends wedding. For those of you who have not noticed May starts next week. So Miami Guy will be here soon. Cono!

Oh and just because i know that J and Janette had something to do with this Don Omar will be in Denver on May 28 for a concert. So it looks like Don Omar and Miami Guy are both going to be here at the same time.

Conversation's in the basement

So on Tuesday I called up B to invite him to X’s surprise birthday party (which is this Saturday...the party that is not his birthday) We talk for about 20 min and he never mentions anything about getting a divorce. Last night I go to X’s house to hang out and B is there. So we are all hanging out and then B starts this conversation.

B: “ Karla, I am really tired”
Me: “ Yeah I bet you are you are working two jobs”
B: “ No that is not what I am talking about, I am talking about my marriage”
Me: “ oh”

So then he starts telling me about some of the things that are frustrating him and I just let him talk. I just sit and listen because I can tell that he just needs to vent. So I don’t say anything until he says “ I guess I am not man enough for her.” At that point I could not keep quite anymore I had to say something. So I go off in to a ramble about how he should not say that and how he is a wonderful man and pretty soon the dude is crying. No he is not bawling but there are tears running down his face and well that just broke my heart.

So my first thought was “Cono (shit) I did not mean to make him cry.” So I ask him if something I said upset him and he says “ No it’s just that you understand me and yet my wife won’t even try to.” I remind him that I have known him longer then she has and that is why I “understand him” and that he needs to give his wife sometime to get to known him the way that I do.

So he keeps crying and telling me how hurts he is and how he wants to do the right thing for his daughter and then he started talking about his grandmother (who is very ill) and he just kept on crying. I felt so bad for him. The poor guy is under so much stress. Then in the middle of all of this his biological father calls him and that just upsets him even more.
I know his worse fear is for him to become like his biological dad.

I reassured him that he is nothing like his biological dad. Well then really quickly he got up and said that he had to leave that he had to go get some sleep so that he could go to work the next day. I don’t know what happened there. He just got up and got ready to leave. I don’t know if I hit a nerve or something or if he realized that I had just seen him cry. It’s not like this is the first time that we have had a deep and serious conversation but it was the first time that I have ever seen him cry.

The end of a love affair…the beginning of a new addiction

Well it is officially over my love affair with Chipotle that is. I went to Chipotle last night for dinner. I picked up my burrito and went home to eat it. I took a bite and Yuck, for the first time ever I could not stand to eat the rest of my burrito. To me it tasted nasty it had no flavor. I know longer felt the same way about it. I no longer craved it. So I throw it away and now I know that was the last Chipotle burrito I will eat for a long time.

I know what you are thinking, Karla what happened you LOVE Chipotle? I don’t know somewhere along the lines we grow apart. Did you get a different burrito? No, the funny thing is that I had my usual and it just tasted nasty to me. Now let me make this clear there is nothing wrong with Chipotle, their food is really yummy but it’s just that I no longer enjoy eating it.

Even thought my love for Chipotle has ended, I do have a new love or addiction… Nestle Lemon Ice Tea. I forgot my water yesterday and so I went down to the vending machine to get some water. We were all out of water and I refuse to buy soda/pop so I thought I would try the Ice Tea. Well now I am hooked. That will be my new addiction until I grow try of it and replace with yet another addiction.

Confessions over bowling.

So on Friday I went to the Wine and Cheese party. I had a nice time. Four of my co-workers showed up. I was so glad to see them because that meant that I had someone to talk to. Well I drank a lot of wine but not enough to get drunk but just enough to feel “nice”. As I was leaving the party my best guy friend (we will call him “B”) called me and asked me if I was going to Ryan’s birthday party the next day. I told him yes and we started talking about some other things.

So on Saturday I went to WW. First of all NEVER wear a velour tracksuit to weigh in at WW. I stepped on the scale and it said that I gained 5 lbs but once I took of the jacket I magically went down a pound. So officially its says that I gained 4 lbs. Later that night I went to Ryan’s birthday party with X, Jessica, Nataly and Gabe. We went to Fat City. When we got there Ryan and Melissa, Chad and Misty, and Adam where waiting for us in the bowling area. So we bowled had a few drinks (long island ice tea’s for this chica) and just hung out. It was so good to see Adam it has been over a year since the last time I have seen him. He has lost a ton of weight and looks really good.

Well do you guys remember how I mention in my entry on March 14 that my best guy friend was in love with me? Well that best guy friend is “ B” well he shows up at 10. He comes over gives me a big hug and says “ Mami you look good” I thank him and we continue to hang out. He is sitting on one side of our bowling area and I was sitting on the other. So he calls me over there saying that he has something to tell me. So I go over there two seconds after I sit down he has his arm around my shoulder.

Me: “ So what is up”
B: “ uh nothing”
Me: “ you told me that you had something to tell me?”
B: “ eh…I did? um that is right I did say that”
Me: “yeah so what is it?”
B: “ eh…long time no see?”
Me: (laughing) “ that’s it, that is what you had to tell me?”
B: “ Oh yeah and that you look really good tonight”
Me: (Laughing) “ Ay B you are to much, but thanks”

So then I try to get up to leave and he grabs my leg and gently push’s me back down.

B: “ eh where are you going?”
Me: “ Back to the other side”
B: “ Nah just hang out here with me for a little while?”

So I did, Adam sat on the other side of me and we just all hung out and cracked jokes on each other. B started to mess with Adam by trying to grab his chest. Adam would then bring me closer to him and say “ Don’t leave me he will violate me if you leave” Ha Ha those guys are too much. Well B kept telling me how good I looked and that I was hot.

I told him I was going to have to bring him around more often because he was a good ego buster.

Well some where in there he told me the following “ Damn why did I listen to X, if I would have just ignored him instead of listing to him I would have been with you instead of my wife but now it’s to late and I can’t have you”

Those were his words not mines. That was the first time he has EVER confessed his feelings for me to me. He has told Jessica and Nataly before but he has never told me how he feels.

Later on Jessica told him that we look good together and he told her that I looked good and that I was his “Dominican Mami’ and that he loves it when I speak Spanish. He asked Jessica to teach him Spanish.

All night long he kept touching my hair, my arm, my leg. It was like he had to touch me. He kept telling me how pretty I am. He kept making small comments that reveled how he really felt about me. When Adam put his arm around me and said, “ Hey did you know that me and Karla are going out?” I said, “ Eh, we are?” B laughed and said “ Eh No” Adam kept messing with him and for a second it looked like B was going to kill him. We had to tell him that Adam was just joking. He was like “ that’s not funny, don’t play like that.”

Jessica and Nataly say that when we are together it looks like we are the only two people in the room that we look “ really cute together” Ay girls did you forget the same fact that he is eh… MARRIED!

Well he called me twice yesterday. He asked me to burn him a copy of Barrio Fino and then he told me that he would pick it up today when we go to lunch. Eh since when did we have plans to go to lunch? Well I called him on that and he said that he wanted to pick up the CD today instead of on Thursday when we had plans to go out to a benefit dinner because he wants to listen to it right away so he thought that we could go out to lunch today. I agreed to meet him for lunch.

So now I am on my way to lunch with my best guy friend who has just confessed to me that he loves me.

Q & A

How old were you when you had your first kiss?

18 (Yeah, I am a late bloomer)

If you had to hang out with her, which one of these three would you pick and why: Cinderella, Snow White, or Sleeping Beauty?

Hmm, Sleeping Beauty because all that girl does is sleep and I desperately need to catch up on my sleep.
Okay, a train leaves Chicago headed for Dallas at 56mph, a dog crosses the street in Boston going 2.3mph.... just kidding.

Ha ha now on to some more questions

Aliens show up and plan to wipe out the entire human race. They elect YOU to start over and they give you any 3 men to repopulate the earth with. Who are they and why?

Hmm this is a hard one….let me think…Daddy Yankee because he is soooo hot, The Rock not only is he incredibly sexy but he has a great personality as well and Alberto Puljos… Damn Desiree you called it.

Chocolate or vanilla?


Who was your first crush? How old were you?

His name was Hector he was my sister’s friend I was 7 he was 17…I have always liked older men. :)

Do you like corn?

I heart corn.

If you were stranded on an island, what celebrity would you want to be stranded with?

Jay Hernandez …umm…yummy

...where do you bury the survivors?

I’ll never tell…. You will never get it out of me Kom! NEVER!!!! :)

Ok, I happen to agree that real women have curves. How come most women are trying to diet themselves into pre-pubescent boys?

First of all YAY!!! a guy who likes women with curves but now to answer your question because society has told us that looking like pre-pubescent boys is in and no one would love you unless you look like one.

What is your favorite body part on a man?

Damn Janette that was my j/ favorite body part on a man has to be the shoulders.

if you could have any job what would it be?

Caro you already know the answer to this one, but I will answer it any way. If I could have any job it would be a stripper….ha ha no just kidding it would be a make-up artist. I love playing with make-up and making people look and feel good.

If you could be a super heroine, what would your powers be?
Hmmm…if I could be a super heroine I will have to be Wonder Woman…but I would want to be Wonder Woman with Storm’s powers.

If you could only have ONE emotion/feeling... what would you pick & why?!

Only one emotion/feeling…hmmm I would pick calm because that way no matter what is going on I would always be calm and clear head and able to handle the situation (not very exciting I know.)

Those were great questions. Thanks guys.

My Motivation

Image hosted by

My cousin Alex is getting married in December.  I want to go to his wedding but a lot can happen from here to there.  If i am able to go to the wedding i want to be able to wear that dress. So i am going to work out hard core so that i can fit into that dress. Oh and as a side note Alex and Miami guy are friends which means that Miami guy is going to be at the wedding and hopefully i will be also wearing that dress. :)

Damn really....

I am the Siren

A man is often secretly oppressed by the role he has to play - by always having to be responsible, in control, and rational. The Siren is the ultimate male fantasy figure because she offers a total release form the limitations of his life. In her presence, which is always heightened and sexually charged, the male feels transported to a realm of pure pleasure. In a world where women are often too timid to project such an image, learn to take control of the male libido by embodying his fantasy.

Symbol: Water. The song of the Siren is liquid and enticing, and the Siren herself is fluid and ungraspable. Like the sea, the Siren lures you with the promise of infinite adventure and pleasure. Forgetting past and future, men follow her far out to sea, where they drown.

Walking With Butterflies

Ok so last week besides getting all worked up about the whole Cookie Monster thing, I started to work out again. Since Wednesday I have been walking with my mom and Jessica. Then when we get home Jessica and I do some Pilates. Also I have been eating "clean" as my friend calls it. I guess it most be working because about four people now have come up to and told me I have lost weight. :) I know, I know you don't lose weight over night but I guess I must be doing something right. I don't know where this new motivation is coming from but I hope it sticks around for a little while longer. I did not go to WW this week either, instead I went to the 9news health fair with my mom and aunts. I go with them ever year.

So yesterday I woke up early and decide to go for a walk. As I was getting ready to go Jessica woke up and asked me to wait for her so that we can go walking together. So I waited for her. We walked around the neighborhood once and then Jessica was tired so she went home and I kept walking. As I was walking all of these Monarch Butterflies started to fly around. It looked like they were walking with me. It was a really peaceful and quite way to start the morning. Here is a pic of one of the butterflies.

Image hosted by

So my second time around the neighborhood I would alternate in between walking and running. When I got home I drank a big glass of water and then went to do some Pilates.

After that I showered and ate breakfast. I went with my mom and Jessica to help Raquel (mi prima) move in to her new apartment. Then we went to the guys softball game (they won 7-4) and then to my sister's house for our "cousin's meeting". Our "cousin's meeting" was about some stuff that is going on in our family. We all got together and we called Caro. So we talked, yelled, cried, almost killed each other, etc but in the end I think we all got everything that we wanted to say out. We lost Caro somewhere during the conversation because the cell phone we were using died. We tried to call Caro back but umm she would not pick up. So we ended the meeting and then I went home to watch Grey Anatomy.

Say What?

I might be the only person who had not hear about this till now...

Healthier Cookie Monster Eating Fewer Cookies

Image hosted by

NEW YORK -- The Cookie Monster is straightening up his act and taking control over his cookie obsession. "Sesame Street's" beloved blue, furry monster is going to learn some lessons about moderation as the children's show kicks off its 36th season on PBS. Cookie Monster will now advocate eating healthy. His "C is for cookie" song has been replaced with a new song -- "A Cookie Is a Sometimes Food."

It's part of the show's Healthy Habits For Life initiative, and other characters are taking part, too. "Elmo loves exercise," says Elmo. "Count your fruits and vegetables," says the Count. And "Hand-washing is fun!" says Big Bird.

The show's vice president of research and education said each episode will open with a "health tip," and there will be new characters, such as talking eggplants and carrots.

Show producers said with the rise in childhood obesity, "Sesame Street" is focusing on teaching children about healthy foods and physical activity.

I got that article from

I was so upset when i read that. Yes, Ok we want our kids to eat healthy but messing with a television icon is not the answer...LEAVE COOKIE MONSTER ALONE!

Oh i am so heart broken...what has happen to the good old days....ok all i can say is "c is for cookie thats good enough for me! oh cookie cookie cookie starts with c"

Ahh Spring

Nothing says spring like a big snow storm .....

So on Friday when I got home from work I sat down to read my new book Muddy Cup and I fell asleep. When I woke up it was noon on Saturday. Wow I did not know that I was that tired. So since I woke up late on Saturday I missed my WW meeting. I went to the movies with Jessica, Nataly and Denise we went to see Fever Pitch and even though it was a movie that involved the Boston Red Socks “ cough Yankee fan cough” it was actually pretty good. I saw the preview to the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants it looked really good and I can’t wait till it comes out so that I can go see it.

So Saturday everyone in Denver kept talking about some blizzard that we were suppose to be getting. I took one look around at the clear blue sky and said “ where ?” Well when I woke up on Sunday I notice that it was bright outside and I thought “ you see no blizzard” that was until I open my blinds to see nothing but snow. My first reaction what “ Where the hell did all this snow come from?”
We were snowed in all day Sunday so we just hung out at my house watching t.v. and eating that was about it. Some areas received more snow then other. Last time we checked we had about 18’ in our backyard. Monday was a Snow Day so I did not have to go to work. The funny thing about that is that the sun came out and by noon most of the snow had melted and the roads were clear. I spent most of the morning Monday shoveling snow and then I made a snowman in my back yard. Now it is Tuesday and I am back at work.

Selena Vive

Image hosted by


Can you believe that it has been 10 yrs?  I can't,  last night Univison aired the "Selena Vive" tribute concert which featured lots of famous artist such as La India, Gloria Estefan, Paulina Rubio, Jennifer Lopez and many more either singing her songs or talking about Selena.  Her family was there and evey time the camera would show her mom my heart would brake. I thought the tribute was wonderful and i have to say that i especially like the Kumbia Kings and when Los Dinos preformance. I missed the first two hours of ths show because i was at work but i heard that La India did a wonderful job of singing "No Debes Jugar". I hope the Univision airs the tribute again so i can watch the whole thing.

Ok so i spent a good part of my week off feeling like i was being haunted. No not by Casper or any other cool ghost like that. No i was haunted by the ghost of Miami Guy. Miami Guy looks like Don Omar. In case you have no idea who Don Omar is here is a pic...
Image hosted by

Now take away the tattoos and give him the short faded haircut that every guy in New York has instead of braids and you have Miami guy. I mean they look excatly the same. They are the same height, weight, everything. No Don Omar is not Miami Guy, and yes i am sure about that.  Now Don Omar is a famous Reggeaton singer who has a few number one hits. Well after telling Jessica that Miami guy looks like Don Omar who do you think comes on the radio??? Yup you guessed it Don Omar and that was the being of my haunting.

After that everytime i turned on the radio it would be a Don Omar song. If i turned on the t.v. there was Don Omar. I talked to my girl Nataly (she means well she really does) who said that it must be a "sign" and that i should "call him" Miami guy that is not Don Omar. Eh no not going to happen. Well the week drags on and it seems like Don Omar is EVERYWHERE at all times.

So now Jessica and Nataly are teasing me about it " you see, its a sign you should call Miami Guy". Haha you girls are funny but it is not going to happen. I REFUSE to call Miami Guy.

 Then to top it all off my aunt calls my house and i pick up before i can say "Hello" i can here that she is signing along to the radio. I bet you'll never guess who it was....DON OMAR and the thing that makes the matter worse is that THIS is the AUNT that introduced me to Miami guy.  The whole deal with Miami guy is all her fault and now she is singing along to Don Omar. Ay that was to much for me so i sent an email to "Ask Reese" and got some really great advise from her. (Everyone should write to "Ask Reese" for advise).

So now here i am back at work (looking at the Daddy Yankee pic for yesterdays post) and even here at work i am haunted by Don Omar/Miami guy. One of the students came into my classroom singing a Don Omar song. I think i am going to have to go and hide under a rock.

So what is wrong with the guys from Denver?

Like I said in the entry below I went out on Friday night with my cousin’s and some friends to the Purple Martini and Blue Ice.

The Purple Martini is an upscale lounge/bar. There are two locations one is downtown and the other is located in the Denver Tech Center (DTC) we went to the one in DTC. Usually when we go to the Purple Martini we have a good time. Well that was not going to happen. When we got there, there was a very long line of people waiting to get in. We were able to cut the line because we already had people inside waiting for us. Once we got in the place was crowded. Here we were in this “hotspot” and there were no cute guys around. I mean not even one. The music that night was wack and there were just way to many people in there it was extremely hot in there, but we were going to meet up with some people there so we hung out there for a few hours had some drink, dance, etc and then we decide to go to Blue Ice.

Before we left for Blue Ice, Ray looks around and says “I thought I landed in Denver not Silicone Valley” To which I responded with a “ What?” He says “ Look around just about all the women in here have fake boobs”. So I start to look around and guess what he was right just about every other women in there had fake boobs.

Well we get to Blue Ice and it is also crowded but not as crowded as Purple Martini they are playing better music also. Well about an hour after arriving at Blue Ice, Ray asks me “ So cuz what is wrong with the men from Denver?” I look at him and say, “ What do you mean?” He says, “ Are they all gay or something?” I say (laughing) “ What no why?” He says “ Yo we have been here for over and hour and not one guy has come up to you ladies and asked you to dance or bought you a drink or even try to spit some game.”

When I did not respond because eh he was right he added, “ If you were in New York by now you would be fighting to keep the guys off you.” Again he is right. So when I did not respond again he says “Karla are you listening to me?” To which I say “ eh yeah I was just making a mental note to self to go visit New York more often.”

He laughs and then he gets his boy Lenny (who is also from New York and his sister’s boyfriend) and asks him the same question to which Lenny responds with a “ Yo he is right, if ya were in New York and guys notice that there were five sexy Latina girls all alone the would have been all over ya” All this talk got me think and damn Ray was right there is something wrong with the guys in Denver.

The last couple of times that us girls went out we came back home empty handed. We were never invited to go dance, no one bought us a drink, and we did not even get a single gross look for the sketchy guy at the bar. Nothing it’s like all the cute guys in Denver were shipped out to another state.

So I decided to ask my guy friends what was up. The first one I asked was my best guy friend B.

Me;” Hey B, I have a question to ask you.”
B: (Trying to be Dominican) “Dimelo Mami “
Me: “ What is wrong with the guys from Denver?”
B: “ What do you mean?”
Me: “ Well, how is it that five hot, sexy, young Latina’s can go out for a night on the town and come home empty handed?”
B: “ Say what?”
Me “ Yeah, that is what I said?”
B: “ You mean to tell me you mami’s went out and not a single guy asked you to dance, bought you a drink, spit some game, or even asked for your number?”
Me: “Yup, that is what I am telling you”
B: “ Damn yo!”
B: “ I don’t know what is wrong with them.”
B: “ First of all I am not from Denver.”
Me: “ Yeah I know you are from Chicago, but you are a guy and you do live in Denver."
B: “ Damn if ya were in Chicago you would not have even made it in to the club, by the time you ladies made it in to the club you would have about 15 phone numbers”
B: “ Karla are you there?”
Me: “ Yeah, sorry about that I was on Orbitz checking to see how much a flight to Chicago cost.”
B: (laughing) “ Damn what is wrong with the guys from Denver?”
Me: “ That is my question?”

Well since B did not answer my question I kept asking. After the normal “ Yo, I am not from Denver, I am from L.A./ New York/ Dallas/ Chicago/ Miami” response most of the guys had no idea either. The best answer I got was “ Yo, the dudes here in Denver are attracted to things that flash, you know what I mean ma fake things. They don’t know a good women when they see one.”

That is a good answer but still not good enough so could someone please answer my question what is wrong with the guys from Denver?


Now let me explain Sunday’s post. I don’t normally drink to the point that I get wasted. So you know that something is up when I do. So let me recap this week so that you guys can understand why this girl had to have a few drinks that night.

Well my week off was great in fact I wish it were longer. It has been a long time since I was able to actually take a break. I had absolutely nothing to do and for the first few days I was lost. I had no idea what to do. I am so use to always being in action doing something, going somewhere, calling someone. So it was very hard for me to just relax. By the third day of my break I was over my need to do something and I was finally able to relax.

On Wednesday my cousin Ray came to visit from NY he brought with him my grandmother as a surprise. You can imagine the looks on our faces when she walked in. I think my dad almost died. He was so happy to see his mami. So I spent the next couple of days just hanging out with my grandmother and cousin. My abuela spoiled me rotten while she was here. She made all of my favorite food. It was so nice to be able to sit down and talk to her and hug her and just having her in the same room.

We spent the whole morning Friday shopping. Yay for shopping we went to the outlets and to the Cherry Creek Mall. I bought baby Alex some clothes at the Gap and an iPod for myself at the Apple store. I LOVE my iPod! I think they should hand those out to everyone. We went out on Friday night to the Purple Martini and Blue Ice to celebrate my cousin’s Angelica’s birthday. More on that later…. I am going to write a separate entry about that because eh I have a question to ask.

On Saturday after only getting four hours of sleep I dragged myself to WW to find out that I lost 4 lbs! How I did that I have no idea. After going to WW I went to visit baby Alex and then to the supermarket.

While at the supermarket this really cute guy comes up and asks me a question in Spanish. I had to do a double take because the dude looked like Miami guy but younger.
So I gave him the information that he was looking for and then kept on shopping have way down the Diary aisle I said “Duh Karla that guys was really cute what the hell are you doing “ So I went back to see if I could find him. No luck the dude disappeared. Yes I am still kicking myself for that one. I blame my slow reaction time to lack of sleep.

Here we are it is now Tuesday my first day back at work. I am glad to be back at work, but only because that means that I can escape the evil house phone that keeps ring with bad news.
