    I want to start giving out fortune cookies to you for the weekend because I am AZN. My first fortune cookie for you is some wise words from Charo, the only celebrity that has made me all starstruck (until I meet Bjork which will result in me fainting.) Lately I have been asking myself What Would Charo Do? WWCD?? I found this great quote and a video of her singing “Love Will Keep Us Together” from her television special that aired in the mid-70′s. That song is so special to me.


    “If you believe in what you do, you are immortal. The day that you don’t believe it, the day you’re taking other people’s opinion, you better go to Tijuana.” – Charo aka María Rosario Pilar Martínez Molina Moquiere de les Esperades Santa Ana Romanguera y de la Najosa Rasten

    Fun Fact: My latest fake name for the club is Tia Juana.

    Happy weekend ladies and gents!

    Awesome Black History Month props!

    LL Cool J is 41, and I am certain he can still frequently be spotted visiting “Kanday” at “The Bristol Motel”… ;)

    I love, LOVE how Charo–to this day!!–has refused to adopt English consonants into her English vocabulary. All the rolled r’s and soft g’s…amazing.
