Mad Hot Ballroom

I saw this movie at Blockbusters the other day and i have been dying to see it so i rented it. My mami and I watched it on Friday night. I LOVE this movie. It is sooooooo cute. My mami ended up loving it even more then i did, so much so that she called all my aunt's and uncle's and told them that they had to come over to watch it. Last night during our usual Sunday dinners (my family gets together every sunday for dinner) my mom kept telling me " put the movie on, put the movie on." So i did. Ay, why did i do that?

Right after the movie was over my aunt's and uncles started to take out their cellphones and started calling family in New York and Miami just to tell them about this movie. Ay, what have i done. Look what i started just by asking my mom to watch a movie with me :)

I saw that they have it on sale at Target, so i went and bought it for my madre since she loves it so much. I can't wait till i give it to her later on tonight.

If you have not seen this movie then let me tell you are missing out on a GREAT movie. It had me smiling and laughing the whole time. I was so excited for the little dominican kids from Washington Heights. My aunt's say that i am being bias because i am a little dominican kid from Washington Heights :) i promise you that has nothing to do with it. O.K. yes it does, but anyway this is a great movie and i am mad that they started this program the year after i left New York. Why could they have not done this sooner like oh i don't know 1993?

Bueno i hope you all had a lovely weekend. Go rent or buy this movie i promise you are not going to regret it.

An Update and a Question.

What's up Yo?

Don't mind me i am in a silly mood today, so let see what has been going on... hmmm... oh yes i have this week off from work. Yay!! I have been home chilling doing nothing. It is soooo nice to just sleep in.

Caro came home last Thursday for the weekend and that was cool. It was great to see everyone's reaction when they saw her. LOL, we are some sneaky mother**** Caro, Joe and Moi that is. I loved our "Kitchen" conversation during your last night here Caro. Good times, good times.

A few nights ago Joanne asked me what happened to our beloved Dominican Bachlorette bueno mi gente what can i say about our bachlorette, last time we saw her she had kicked Adrian to the curve. Well now our lovely bachlorette is this close to becoming a cat lady, and she DISLIKES cats. So that should tell you something. There are still NO men in Denver. I think i am going to have to import some guy in from another city.

Do you guys remember Adrian? bueno, he went and got married to some girl he met at the club a few weeks ago. Yes, he sure did.

I got a text message from my dear cousin Nataly the other day telling me that the first guy i had ever kissed passed away. He died in a motorcycle accident in D.R.

Damn, last time i saw him was six years ago and the last image i have of him is the one of him standing in the middle of the road yelling " Coño Karla, come back here" as i walked away from him mad as hell. I never saw or talked to him again after that and now i never will.

Ok enough of the sad stuff now for the question.

I was thinking since a lot of the "original" suicas (Dirty Girls) are also fellow bloggers how do you ladies feel about having a "ex-sucia" retreat some where? I think it would be cool for all of us to get together and cause some mean hang out some where.

So tell me ladies what do you think? we could be real biotches and do it at the same time as the other sucias or we can do it whenever. Also let me know what you ladies would like to do. We can take a curise or just fly out somewhere and lay on the beach while we drink mojitos and check out papi chulos. The choice is up to you my dears. So let me know either by sending me and email or commenting here.

Leaving La Sucias

A year ago I joined a gang, Yup, you read that right I said I joined a gang. Last year I became a sucia. The sucia gang was formed on October 6 and three days later I joined. The night I joined I met our leader La Queen Sucia. I had a good time that night and left feeling like I had made the right choice by joining.

At first we were a small group of women who came together to support each other and just talk we had great conversations about everything from politics to the Texas vibrator law. We were a really tight group of women from all over the world and from all walks of life. Did you know that there is a sucia gang member in South Africa? Yup that is right South Africa. Some of you might be surprise to know that a few of our fellow bloggers are also members or use to be members of La suicas.

Anyways the sucias was the hottest sh*t around for a long time. Then came that May weekend where everything changed. What exactly happen I can not say I was not there, all I know is that when La Sucias came back from that trip things turned ugly quickly. Nasty emails were sent out and a sucias was actually kicked out of the group. A few days’ later apologies were sent out but by then it was to late the damage had been done, the sucias would never recover from it. That weekend became the white elephant in the room we all knew it was there but yet no one dare to talk about it.

Little by little the "original" sucias started to leave, some left officially (like I did) by letting everyone in the group know they were leaving, some just left and never came back. I still wonder what happened to them.

As the "original" sucias were leaving "new" sucias were coming in. Some of the "new" sucias were cool and I am glad that I got to know some of them, but some of the "new" sucias were just there to cause trouble.

Why is that, when a group of women see that an other group of woman is getting along they have to come and try to start sh*t? Yes the sucias were on shaky ground because of that retreat in May, but we were working on it, then those few new sucias came in and messed everything up.

I hate the fact that a select few women ruined a good thing for everyone else, because of these "new" sucias and their mission to cause trouble it soon became them vs. us. The "new" sucias vs. the "original" sucias.

A lot of the older sucias no longer felt welcome in a group that they help create (myself included). This caused even more of the “original” suicas to leave. I stopped "hanging" out with the sucias in June and when I came back, I could not believe what was going on. The group that I came back to was not the same group I had left, la sucias had changed.

Shortly after that I stopped posting but I was still a "part" of the group, I still knew what was going on. I left the group again in August. This time when I came back I "tried" to put all that drama behind me and give the "new" sucias a chance, I am glad that I did because I was able to meet even more of the "new" sucias who are mad cool, but those few who are only a part of that group to cause trouble were still there doing their thing and again I felt unwelcome. So I decided that it was time to leave. I left the sucias a week ago.

To all the "original" sucias who left I miss you guys and I hope you are all doing well. To the "new" sucias I wish you luck and I hope you ladies are able to keep the group together.

So for the last time I want to say " SUCIAS" out!

Aquí me ven
Tratando de dejar atrás
Las malas cosas del pasado
Limpiándome toda la piel
De lo que un día me hizo daño
Para sanar mis heridas

Aquí me ven
Es hora de recuperar
Lo que dejé por olvidado
Las ganas de volver a amar
Y de vencer el calendario
Para encontrar mi salida

Aquí me ven
Tratando de limpiar los restos
Que quedaron del fracaso
Creyendo que tal vez podré
Recoger todos mis pedazos
Y recuperar mi vida

Aquí estaré
Y como una mujer asumiré
Que voy a retomar mis pasos
Que lo que nunca pudo ser es cosa
Del pasado

-Marc Anthony
Here you see me
Trying to leave behind
The bad things from the past
Cleaning my skin
Of what one day hurt me
So that i can heal my wounds

Here you see me
It is time to recover
what i left for forgotten
the desire to love again
and to defeat the calendar
so that i can find my exit

Here you see me
Trying to clean up what
is left of failure
Believing that i might be able
to pick up all my pieces
and recover my life

Here I will be
and like a woman, I will assume
that i will be able to take back all my steps
that what was once impossible is now
part of the past

-Marc Anthony

This is loosely translated in to english.

Breast Cancer Awareness

It has taken me forever to write this because El Papi Chulo list is a hard entry to follow. Also this is a hard entry for me to write but i have to do it, it is the least i can do. I own it to you.

As you all know by now October is Breast Cancer awareness month. I know that no one on here knows this but breast cancer hit's close to home for Caro and me. Our aunt was diagnosis with Advance Stage 3 breast cancer last year.

No one in my family wanted to tell me that my aunt had breast cancer. I found out by mistake, Nataly let it slip one day, my first reaction was one of shock and then it was to sit on the floor and cry. Actually it was more like a sob but you get what I mean. I am very close to my aunt she is my second mom. She helped raise me. I have always thought of her and my tio (uncle) as my second set of parents and her daughters as my sisters. In fact when I was 5 I use to tell everyone I had 4 older sisters instead of two. I was heartbroken when my mom explain to me that Josie and Gricy where my cousins not my sisters. LOL.

My aunt had surgery to remove the cancerfrom her right breast in March and had chemo right after that. Chemo was really hard for her because not only was she sick and unable to do anything (which she hated) but also she could not travel and that was the hardest part of all since this was all happening at the same time that my grandmother was very ill and my aunt wanted to go to be with my abuela. Last Tuesday was her last day of radiation and this week her doctor gave her a clean bill of health and permission to travel. My Tia is so excited about the fact that she can go to D.R. to visit my grandmother and now my grandfather.

My tia is now a survivor, but there are still millions of women and men who are still fighting for their lives, So in their name i am asking that you guys take a moment and stop by The Breast Cancer Site and help fund a mammogram by clicking on the pink button in the middle of the web site. Also if you can please join the Race for the Cure when it comes to your town or if you can't do the race stop by the Susan G Komen website and see what else you can do to raise awareness.

I will end this post with a picture of a survivor, mi tia. Te quiero mucho tia.

I'm Back

Hey everyone, I am back!!!! Did you miss me? I had a good time at my conference, Rifle was not all that bad it was a beautiful drive up there i took some pictures but i don't think that they will do the beauty of nature justics. It is something that you have to see with your own eyes to understand what i am talking about. I will post the pic's that i took later on. I am pretty tired so i am going to go take a nap and i know that there are a ton of spelling mistakes but right about know i don't care. There will be a better post later.
