"Let's get going and fix it right
Twist and turn, make it tight...

"Trabajamos juntos
we work together now..."

"Cut it, measure it, tap it flat
Bend and twist, just like that..."

"Each of us has a special job..."
"We work together - todos juntos!..."
"We can fix it right!"

"What Are You Looking At?
Strike a pose.
Strike a pose.
Vogue, vogue, vogue
Vogue, vogue, vogue...
"Come on, vogue
Let your body move to the music [move to the music]
Hey, hey, hey
Come on, vogue
Let your body go with the flow [go with the flow]
You know you can do it..."
"Beauty's where you find it
Not just where you bump and grind it
Soul is in the musical
That's where I feel so beautiful
Magical, life's a ball
So get up on the dance floor..."
"Vogue, [Vogue]
Beauty's where you find it [move to the music]
Vogue, [Vogue]

"Ladies with an attitude
Fella's that were in the mood
Don't just stand there, let's get to it
Strike a pose, there's nothing to it
Vogue, vogue, vogue, vogue
Oooh, you've got to
Let your body move to the music
Oooh, you've got to just
Let your body go with the flow
Oooh, you've got to just,Vogue!"

99 cent fish tacos

my father in law is the director of marketing and training for bajio.
i know, it sounds so fancy.
it is;-)
we call him the "hot old man."
i was the "hot blonde," until i died my hair.
now i'm the blushing brunette??? or something.
my face does have a red tint.
especially in the summer.
it's inevitable. concealer and powder please.
so he told us they just launched a new menu item: fish tacos
"99 cents on cinco de mayo," he said.
so of course we went.
s.d.gib is on break. ann marie met us.
the pork loin was in rare form.
all he wanted was orange bang.
have you tried it?
it's frothy, it's lovely.
so we walked in and the tacos were posted for the regular price of $2.49.
so i called my father in law.
they rang up as 99 cents.
we sat down with our food.
and orange bang.
i also got a pineapple shrimp salad.
it's DEE-vine.
a few minutes later the phone rings.
i noticed the employee talking.
she hangs up.
walks over to the white board,
and well, you can see what she fixed on their sign.
"the daughter in law of the director of marketing is in our store right now and said you're not advertising our cinco de mayo special. could you please fix it?"
or something like that;-)
i laughed.
want to find a bajio near you?

so they're 99 cents today.
you should try them.
it's festive.
for cinco de mayo, saavy?
