Cinco de Mayo

Why is this such a big deal in the U.S.? It has nothing to do with us; it’s about Mexico’s defeat of the French in the Battle of Puebla in 1862. Of course, it gives Americans an excuse to go out and get wasted, so I guess that’s the appeal. Not that Americans in general really need an excuse to go out and get wasted, but I suppose today you could go out and get wasted while wearing a sombrero, and it would be considered “festive” and not just weird.

P.S. My friend Lindsay just bought 3 seasons of Gilmore Girls the other day, and they were on sale at Target for $22.99, which is amazing, so if you’ve been thinking about buying any of the seasons, now would be a good time.
