Yup Yup Yuppers
Anyways...enough about that!
Here is a quickie update.
- The White Ribbon campaign is still underway. Thanks to Daily Texican about the suggestion for media coverage. I am not too sure about it yet...I am wondering if this campaign should be more of a grass roots effort and then work its way up, and then to get media coverage from its own accord. My sister and I went to buy the materials last week and she helped me make some ribbons (Thanks Angie!), and we should have some 200 to pass within the next couple of weeks. I want to add some quotes to the ribbons by great figures of the past and present on the topics of peace, understanding and civic enagement. I also want to include quotes in Spanish. So it may be a while before the ribbons get out because I am pretty busy these days. I was also thinking of making it like a "Pay it Forward" kind of thing (man I loved and hated that movie because you are so happy towards the end and then they go off and kill Haley Joel Osment! I came out of the theatre bawling like a baby!)...like if you get one ribbon...you should pass another three...but I am not too sure how happy people will be with that...hmmm...I have more to think about in concern to this campaign.
- My Tercera Cultura students will be having their exhibtion at the Narciso Martinez Cultural Arts Center in San Benito from March 6th to April 6th. The opening reception will be Sunday, March 6th from 3pm - 6pm. Go and check it out! The center is located in San Benito near the intersection of Stenger and Sam Houston right across the Stonewall Jackson Hotel. It's going to be an interesting and eclectic show so don't miss out!
- Charro Days has begun! I am so happy about it. I can't wait to take part in the fun. I had a horrid dream last night that Sombrero Fest was charging $15 to get in. I bet they wish! Some years the $3 fee was too much even for my family and I...right now it is at $5. I can do $5 so I am going this year...I didn't last year because I was a poor student...but this year I can so I will let you all know how it goes. I will also look into recording some sounds. I really like how the Venice blog uses audio recordings and webcams to capture the sights and sounds of Venice...something that would make this blog especially nice...but for now I am hoping I can atleast get a grito for you all.
- Yay! I finally have good amount of money where I can finally develop like 30 rolls of film that have been waiting for my attention. Included among that stash of undeveloped film are my pictures of Brownsville Snow. But...it will take me about 2-3 weeks to get them up. I have a pretty full plate right now...but that too is pending for this blog so I will get it up by towards the end of March...maybe they wil still be appreciated 4 months after the fact...who knows!
Ok. Gotta go! I have to get ready and drive to work! Bye-bye folks and have a nice Charro Days weekend!
