te quiero, te adoro, mi vida...

i'm listening to "chan chan" by the buena vista social club. wish there were someone here for me to make love to right about now.

i'm having latin music at my wedding. everyone will get laid that night. so damn sultry.

since there's no man here, i must get back to my work, however reluctantly.

on the upside, i won salsa dancing lessons at a charity auction. yummy.

buy this cd. dos gardenias is sexy too. you'll love the whole thing, i promise.

10 people who played with me:

love buena vista.

you will have a great time at salsa (if you have time to take them anytime soon). if you're new to it, just be choosy about whom you partner with. a good indicator is the amount of pressure he puts on the small of your back. if he is barely touching you, he won't be a clear enough guide and if he's clutching too tight, he may be too controlling. it makes all the difference.

Now that you mention it, I need to beat up my friend if he doesn't return my copy to me.

I think I may have some insight as to the cause of your study problems. Perhaps it is the listening to music that makes you want to make love just prior to your study sessions that is causing some concentration issues...

I adore Barack, as well. Just perusing the comments on the side, good luck at salsa. I was in Costa Rica for about two months in the summer and fell in love with salsa dancing. It's so much fun, and such a great workout. I agree with cadiz--you want a guy who will be in control. When I was down there, I happened to dance with a very ugly, paritally-drunk man one evening. While he was the most visiually unappealing partner, he was the best dancer with great control, and I had the best dancing experience of my life.

Love Borges, too.

I'm from a smaller town south of Chi (just out of suburb limits). That said, when out of the state, I also claim I'm from Chicago, since I'm a city girl at heart and it sounds much cooler than saying, "I'm from the land of corn."

I'm still in school , but interning this semester in my congressman's district office (not Barack, unfortunately). As to your question "Who could turn down a job with the US senate?" Me, it seems. I actually haven't turned it down, but i'm conflicted about going out there to work in the congressman's office for a while this summer. I should know this week if they want me to go out there. I'm also going to Mexico for about six weeks, which I'd much rather do than go to DC. (which i loathe.) I don't really want to work for the government, per se, but am more thinking developing world-type issues in an NGO or non-profit or something (Mainly Latin America.)

If you get a job with Barack, I will definitely get along with you fabulously ;-)

Gawd, I'm super-insomniatic tonight. Finals, you know...

Ah, Buena Vista Social Club. Thanks for reminding me of this great album that's sort of been collecting dust on my shelf. Must listen tonight.

Shame on me. I haven't posted for this topic.

Well, that is very interesting, Jasmine. I've never really listened to that group, though I have heard of them. But, for some reason, now I want to listen to them.

I've prayed to the gods of mambo, merengue, and salsa. There was a time when my friends and I were "the mambo kings." Or at least we thought we were.

Salsa is beautiful. Especially when you have the right partner.

yeah, once you've danced with the right partner, your quest will be to find someone who will compare. and, even if you hate his guts, you'll still dream of his arms around you six years later.

it's like that first kiss.

jasmine, this topic brought back a lot of warm memories. thanks.

buena vista social club is still high in my cd/mp3 rotation, even after so many years. i saw them live at the paramount theater in oakland a few years ago, and it was an amazing show. everyone was standing and dancing by the end. here are a few other listening recommendations:

"La Llorona" by Lhasa
"Tanto Tempo" by Bibel Gilberto
"Buena Vista Social Club Presents Omara Portuondo"
