To Do:  1. Get Hobby 2. Floss

Here's what I need to do: 1. Get Hobby, 2. Floss. Blogging just gets in the way.

Bi (lingual)


I change my hair color like I change my panties. Quarterly.

My hair is automatically curly. I have no idea what color it really is. Usually, I have a large mass of reddish or brownish curls on my head. Sometimes, I like a change.

In the winter, I like to have black hair. Jet black. It makes me feel Ethnic and Mysterious. I don't know what color would make me feel Rich and Powerful, so I stick with Ethnic and Mysterious.

I decided that in addition to dying it black, that I would wear it straight for awhile. In this context, "wear it straight" has nothing to do with my sexual preference. Ladies, feel free to email me. Guys, you too.

Nobody recognizes me.

Mo said, "You should rob banks." As I am currently unemployed, this seemed like an attractive business venture. "Couldn't we just chain an ATM up to the back of a truck?" I asked. We weighed the pros and cons of this idea. Mo is the kind of person who says "ATM Machine," which drives me nuts. It is not an Automatic Teller Machine Machine. But, he is like two years older than me, so I held my tongue out of respect for elders.

"I meant that you look like a different person. Like a Spanish person," he clarified. Si, por supuesto.

My Spanish is excellent. Here's what I can say:

  • Yes, I would like another beer.
  • Juan, please pass the salt.
  • I'm sorry, is this your husband?
And the ever helpful phrase:
  • I think the cat has worms.
All this ethnic ambiguity is fun for me. It opens up entirely new worlds. New bars. New grocery stores (bodegas, if you will).

I have been using my four phrases for an entire day. I have been slapped once. I have had several beers. My food has been extremely salty. And, it turns out that the cat does, in fact have worms.

Please take a moment and visit one of my favorite bloggers, Fair Maiden. She knows at least five phrases in Spanish. Friday, she runs a regular feature, A$$hole of the Week. Today, she has graciously/foolishly allowed me to guest blog.

When I was in Germany, I was smart enough to bring along my friend Jorie Actually, I was smart enough to bring along girlfriend, who brought along Jorie. I brought along Tom. Anyway, friend Jorie brought along a great phrasebook that we started reading. It had useful phrases, like "You're really hot. Wanna go back to my hotel?"

Perhaps the most useful phrase was "Ich habe wurmer." or "I have worms."

I loved that book.

The beautiful thing about foreign languages is that "Pepto Bismol" is the same in each one.

Judging by my trip to Cancun two years ago, the only Spanish I needed was the words for "extra lime" and "penicillin."

For some reason one of the only words that still resides in my neurons responsible for holding on to Spanish I learned in high school (you can identify those neurons by their sombreros) is platanutre, which means dried banana chip...I probably mispelled that.

No speaka. I like the people that talk louder & slower - still in English. A coworker I had was writing directions (in English), so he wrote bigger. And wrote them out slowly, while talking loud & slow. It was very painful to watch...I'm surprised our Spanish employee didn't kill him.

I can't imagine you with straight hair.

But since your hair is so naturally and automatically curly (like GAbelle's), I'll bet people don't recognize you.

Which can come in handy.

Don't feel too bad.......in the "use it or lose it department" I took 3 years of spanish in High School and could speak it rather fluently at one time. Now? Now I can count to ten, I can say 'eggs(probably only because it sounds like balls), and should the day ever arise that some spanish speaking person HAS to know as a matter of life or death what color my pencil is I will save the day since I can easily still say "my pencil is yellow". Other than that, if that dayum taco bell dog can't say it, neither can I. Hmmmm use it or lose it? If you will excuse me I have to go check on my penis.
