King of Miami Bloggers

Val Prieto of Babalublog...

...is a big birthday boy today!

You know, there are few things which make me respect a person more than:

1) Knowing who you are
2) Walking the walk
3) Helping others out


Which is different from being "proud" of your background. Which is different from talking a good game, but doing nothing about it. Which is different from just blogging, but taking time off from your busy life to give moral support, money and attention to your life's purpose.

And in all three categories, Val excels. Happy ManCamp II, buddy.

UPDATE: Val relates that his birthday "do" went like a house en fuego. Unfortunately, today, he has a massive hangover.

Here then, with my compliments is a hangover cure from the valet of the King of Spain, himself!

Note, not the present King of Spain, no -- but his grandfather, Alfonso XIII, who knew a thing or two about partying.

Cura Para Resacas

Mix in a Highball glass:

Three RAW egg-yolks
Two shucked oysters
One large tablespoon of Worcester sauce (Lea & Perrins preferred)
Salt
Pepper

Drink in one "go", else you'll regurgitate.

Hope that helped, Val!

  • Oh, Victoria...my birthday is next Tuesday, the 31st...

    Ahh, an Aquarius!

    The sign of either brilliance or madness. *duck!*

    is a blog cupcake possible ;-)

    Your blogcupcake wish is my blogcommand. ;)

    BTW, do you know that you share a birthday with Dutch Queen, Beatrix?

    The anecdote of her birthday goes that the merchants who had totalled up thousands of guilders worth of souvenirs in honour of the future baby's birth (in...1938, IIRC), had placed:

    January 1938

    On the various tea towels, Delft cups, table mats, and other assorted tschokes.

    As you can imagine, the little future Queen's birth on the very last day of January, was greeted with a huge sigh of relief. ;)

    Cheers,
    Victoria

  • Victoria, what a wonderful story!

    It's also the birthday of:
    Ernie Banks
    Nolan Ryan
    Jackie Robinson

    hence my baseball interests...

  • Thank you so much Victoria!!! Needless to say, the ManCamp bash was a success yesterday. I know becuase I dont remember a damn thing, my head is pounding and my mouth tastes like sweaty tube socks.

    Good grief! Talk about a murderers row.

    Now, Ron, you might've said already, but which is your favourite baseball club?

    I like the Cubbies, but I'm a Red Sox fan (going on a decade).

    Cheers,
    Victoria

    As long as it wasn't your honeymoon, you're fine. ;)

    And in your honour again, I will post my foolproof "resaca" cure (I looked up the word).

    I got it from the King of Spain, imaginate!

    Cheers,
    Victoria

    Alas, A Detroit Tigers fan for life...and perhaps they'll play .500 ball in my next life!

  • The resaca remedy seems almost as nasty as the resaca itself. Im not so sure I could actually kkep that down.

    With Alan Trammel at the helm, baby, you won't have to wait that long!

    P.S.: The Tigers have not been, I confess, much on my cultural radar. Hank Greenberg and the Georgia Peach are just about the only ballplayers I know from the club.

    But if Paul can make me take a closer look at the Steelers, maybe you can do the same thing for the Tigers!

    Cheers,
    Victoria

    That's what you get for following the advice of a King with the dread "13" in his title!

    For what it's worth, now that your hangover must be well-and-cured, I heard taking one single aspirin (Bayer) before sleeping, works wonders. ;)

    Cheers,
    Victoria

  • Geezz, Ron, you are so obvious! Learn to be subtle!

    And no, "Ice me, Baby!" isn't subtler.

    Heheheee!

    I'm living in the Land of the Devil Rays, so don't bemoan your fate too much. It could be worse, you know.
