She's alive..Weekend Re-cap

Yeah..Pretty much.

::pinches herself::

Ok.

Long time no type. At least for me, who usually types on a daily basis.
Been doing some internal and external tyding up.

This weekend was good...it kind of gave me the 'umph!' I needed to get back on track...I was in a slump the past week...hence the sinking ship and drowing references..

Friday I mellowed out at home..nothing out of the usual...
Went to bed early and got some much needed rest.

Saturday...we played hooky and ditched therapy....
Around mid-day the X picked Miss C up and I was...

::choir chiming...Aleluya::

KID FREE!!!

I hauled ass before I woke up from that dream and went with True to the opening of a Hip Hop clothing store in Old San Juan, owned by some cool friend's of ours. I'll hopefully get pics up and going during the week (my patience with blogger is limited today)...

The store wasn't completely ready...Ok. It wasn't ready at all..they had some paintings..a DJ playing and just a hanging out vibe...I decided to stroll Solo through San Juan and take pics...and check out the cute shops...

Later that evening we chilled at home watchin' the 1st game of the World Series...where the Cardinals Pitcher's killed Detroit...(Detroit's Kenny Rogers returned the favor on Sunday)....

Sunday...we had a big event...

We had this:

Battalla de los Gallos

Battle of the Cocks...


As in a Cock Fight...but replacing the Cocks with Emcees.
The Emcee who won would represent Puerto Rico in the November 4th finals in Colombia, against almost 15 other countries.

And guess what people?


I got to go...

With NO KID.

My mom, said yes to taking care of the Kid...!!!

So after arriving to True's house, I saw the multitude...we had like 5 cars lined up to go...all our friends, me and True on our way....

And guess what else people???


I FORGOT MY FREAKIN' CAMERA!!!!


I badgered myself on that all night...

You guys can't imagine the amount of people there...all these folks from way back when...people still remembering me and asking me when I was gonna come back...

Jeez...it felt so good..it really did...

The Emcee battle left a lot to desire..the kid's competeting got their Emcee's skills apparently by sending 4 proofs of purchase from Corn Pops and three UPC's for a mail-in crash course...

I could've beat a few.

I'll consider that option next year.

We laughed, we cheered, we booed...we screamed...we giggled and we shooks our heads in shame everytime an Emcee was very bad...which was very often...

The Battle consisted on Freestyling...improv raps...which is not an easy task...against your opponent,

Before a huge crowd that was very unforgiving....

At one point they even yelled at one Emcee:

"He's gonna cry..!! He's gonna cry!!"


That was the best....

The winner: a friend of ours..Tek-1...he'll be representing us in Colombia next week..we already gave him our best wishes....I'll keep ya posted on that event..

Afterwards we gathered outside talked, gosipped...met some new people...and we hit the afterparty at Pool Palace...

Bare in mind..I still can't get over I didn't have my cam...

Once at Pool Palace, I got my butt kicked at Air Hockey, saw the MLB recap on the big screen and at almost 1am we decided to call it a night....

It was sunday...monday work schedules had us obligated to get home early.

This week...I'm going to a few events and I have made a plan to glue my camera onto my wrist....

especially for this event:


An art tribute that some of my dear friends are participating in..

So it's an Art-Expo with a Party Vibe..!!

watch out..the paparrazzi is coming!!!
