Tinfoil Hat Time

So I walked out of work yesterday with Ballroom Blitz running through my head for some unknown reason. I hopped into the car, switched on the radio, and there was the Drive playing the same song, which is not that common on their playlist.

It must be time to get one of those tinfoil hats to keep the radio waves out.

RIP: Taqueria Fiesta

We knew it was coming, because someone wants to build a bank on the property, but we didn't know when. Yesterday, when we tried to take catalana there for a postponed fajita dinner, we found that our favorite Mexican restaurant, Taqueria Fiesta, had finally been forced to close.

If we're really lucky, Salud -- the owner -- will decide to open up again somewhere else in the neighborhood. They originally came to the area to serve the fairly large Mexican population in the area, but the food was good and affordable, which meant that it was a great place to eat.
