Tortilla Sandwich

July 29, 2005

So first things first, in case you are wondering what this "Tortilla Sandwich" is all about let me explain.

It's not some recipe or the name of a new restaurant.

It's the best way to describe the essence of my background. It's a mixture of my Mexican and American heritage which once fused together creates the wonderful world I grew up in.

It's a culture where I watched every India Maria movie out there, woke up to episodes of El Chapulin Colorado and had atole for breakfast. Yet at the same time I never missed an episode of Saturday Night Live, craved my favorite meal of meatloaf and mashed potatoes, and fell asleep listening to the Ramones.

That's me in a nutshell.
