  1. I wish I could swear in multiple languages! That would definitely come in handy at home (while I’m foul-mouthed generally, I’m not around my kids).

  2. I like playing around with swearing in foreign languages… In Spain I learned a few swear words and could use them but like I said, saying things like “fuck”, “hostia” (spanish), or “tabernaque” (french) doesn’t really have the same punch and therefore doesn’t really feel like swearing. And what’s the point of swearing if you don’t feel like you are swearing? So I reserve it for special occasions, when people least expect it ;)

    But in Portuguese… I can swear like a sailor! That’s what you get growing up with two brothers and no sisters…

  3. Oi Alê! tudo bem por aí?! entao, acabou “La sombra del viento”? O meu tá aqui na estante, só pra depois do mestrado, tô ficando louca, nao vejo a hora de acabar. A data final( super- apertada) é 15 de junho e eu nao terminei nem a introdução! Completamente bloqueada. Será que isso é sintoma de que eu escolhi o tema errado pra dissertação? Dá até dor de barriga…rsss


  4. Ale,

    I also loved roasted veggies with olive oil, yumm.

    I wish I could ride a bike really well. I also with I were more business savvy.

    I learned “hostia” from a friend from Barcelona, when I started learning Spanish. I also like “…de puta madre.”



  5. Regina,

    Eu tambem adorei essa expressao (“…de puta made”)! Aliás me surpreendi com o quanto eu passei a gostar do idioma espanhol!
