    Back to the old me.

    EG has retired and been replaced by his former self; el Guapo. There will be no further name/avatar changes. That is all.

    It's great to have the old el Guapo back. I never liked that shifty EG character anyway...too much of pinko, liberal whiner for my blood.

    EG was too sanitized and PC sounding, it was an ill fitting name and made your butt look fat!

    el Guapo, well now there's a perfect fit!

    Yay!

    I was starting to feel like a right-winger on this site. The return of El Guapo should give me the appearance of being safely in the middle once again.

    Dude, make sure the pads in your helmet are washed regularly! Those can get quite nasty.

    El Guapo, I refered to you as EG on Tuesday and it didn't feel as natural as El Guapo or El Jefe. Perhaps I should be El Borracho. I personally like the spanish word enratonar.

    The Hangover?"

    Lots of Mexican Norteño songs refer to "El Grito", which translated into English as "The Cry."

    Maybe, in contrast to El Guapo, you could be El Guano? El Camino? El Paso?

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
