It's miércoles! That's español for Wednesday okay?
You know, I grew up with five major world cuisines: Salvadoran, American, Mexican, Italian, and Chinese. I suppose most of us grow up with most of these correct? Burgers and hot dogs =American! Tacos and burritos = Mexican! Spaghetti and lasagna = Italian! Chow mein and rice = Chinese! The Salvi food is due to my heritage, but it's not as international as the other four. In the last few years though, I've discovered this Thai cuisine, which is kick ass man! OMG! It's like Chinese food, but with an extra twist! I love that stuff, especially their iced tea which is just delicious! I used to order it with the funny gooey boba balls at the bottom (insert gay joke here ye gutter minds), but it gets a bit cumbersome sucking up those things and at times they just go up the thick straw and directly into and down my throat (one last gay joke just for you perverts!), causing a bit of a discomfort. L.A. is now loaded with Thai places, or maybe it's always been this way and I am now barely noticing these awesome establishments of culinary delight, due to my current recognition of such yummy food.
Speaking of yummy food, let's talk about England! LOL! I have the utmost respect for so much of their culture, as I'm sure many across the world do right? England has been at the forefront of technology, science, the arts, law, government, etc. since the days of old, which all came together during their mighty rule over the Earth, better known in history as the British Empire! OH MIGHTY BRITAIN, THE 19th CENTURY BELONGED TO YE! I mean, what language am I now writing in for crying out loud? English! I know Scotland, Wales, Ireland, and many other former British colonies or current British regions hate England due to their greedy abusive ways, and I guess this is rightfully so, but history has spoken, and the past cannot be broken. What was it about this tiny somewhat isolated area in Europe that has spawned such international greatness? What was in their air or water that has made them so fiercely competitive and influential? The United States overtook the Brits as the most powerful nation in the 20th century, but who founded the original 13 colonies? And what language do Americans speak? English! And who are the best actors? Sir Ian McKellen, Dame Judi Dench, Kate Winslet, Laurence Olivier. And the greatest writers: Shakespeare, James Joyce, Jane Austen, Charles Dickens! And even in the modern era, the English have given the world rock gods: The Beatles, The Stones, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, The Who, etc. I dare say old chap, I do wanna visit this land some day. As much of a Hispanophile as I am, I can't deny I gots a bit of Anglophilia as well. That sounds nasty doesn't it? HA!
This American author however, has a different, more negative view of the "glorious" English, and is tired of anti-Americanism:
