Some new stuff

These are some new word uses, colloquial word, and other random stuff that I've learned this week.

Pesado- it usually means that something is heavy. It can also be used to refer to an irritating person.

Me toca las narices - like saying "you are a pain in the neck"

Morcilla- spanish sausage

wit- ingenioso

chuletillas - little lamb chops

pimiento del piquillo- a pepper from navarra

carbón- coal, kids that are bad kit carbón from Los Reyes Magos for Christmas. Santa Claus (Papa Noel) is not as famous as Los Reyes Magos, the three wise men or the three kings who carried gifts to baby Jesus.

Sandy- a lemon beer without alcohol

Halloween- It was a Celtic tradition that was introduced to America and transformed into the modern day Halloween.

enseñar- it usually means - to teach. It is also used here when someone says that they will show an apartment. They do not say << voy a mostrar (to show) la habitación >> They say <>

lienzo- canvas

puente- it means <> but they use when they have a long break like the long Halloween break. One of my students said that he was going to sleep during the bridge...

chamizo- In La Rioja, a chamizo is a room where teenagers go to hang out on the weekends. They pay for it monthly, and it includes all kinds of activities.

Don't put all your eggs in one basket- No pongas todos los huevos en una cesta

People who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones- No tires piedras a tu propio tejado.

Well, this does not include the stuff that I have written down.

Pura Vida!

hey thanks for your comment on my blog. I do not have a tutorial anywhere, but I will be working on one because I have been asked about how I style my hair quite a few times :)

I will post the video on my blog when I do.
