Spanish Boots

December 19, 2010

Some worthy news of late:

1.  There’s this place called Montadito, or something.  It brings the heat.  They sell these mini bocadillos for one euro only.  People order eight or fourteen of them and share.

Tonight I jumped on the bocadillo de patata, tomorrow it might be some shrimp with that garlic sauce.  Plus they got bocadillos con chocolate.  Chocolate sandwiches in the Christmas season.  Word is born…

2. For Dylan fans, Bethany recently bought some Spanish boots of Spanish leather.

3.  Saw ‘The Town’ the other night. As far as crime thrillers go, it was tough (Jon Hamm taking no prisoners) with glimpses of gloss (Affleck at his noblest).  They copped out with the ending but it was ok because Jeremy Renner was in it.  Who else takes a psychopath and plays him without winks?  For those who haven’t seen ‘The Hurt Locker,’ please do.

4.  Out here they celebrate January 6th more than December 25th.  Papa Noel (santa) is cool and all, but January 6th is the day of the three kings.  Supposedly they travel from house to house on magic camels and bring the kids presents.  Overall this is more rational than Santa because a) there’s three of them and b) they only have to get to every house in Spain, not the entire world.

By my math, if we give Santa all 24 hours of Christmas Eve (generous), he has to deliver about 80,000 presents per second if he wants to give one to each of the roughly 6.8 billion people in the world.

On the other hand, the three Kings only have to deliver  170 presents per second each to the good Spanish people.  A considerably easier job, but the camels need to be quick like Rondo.Kings for a Day

  1. In my opinion a sandwich with chocolate and churros is not the tastiest
