So for all those who love being reminded of just how fickle the English language can be, plus fancy being reminded of the wonderful Mandy Patinkin in dubious Spanish mode, enjoy!
Language is culture. And funny sometimes.
Notes from a language lover, suburban would-be cultural theorist and international relations analyst, trying to find an online identity not constrained by time or stereotypes of mummy blogging. Tricky.
The Blondie and Brownie pages are snippets of conversation from my 8 and 11 year old boys - you know, culture at work and all that, cute and insightful. This is one of the tricky bits (see above).
Bumper Edition satisfies a quasi obsession with the cultural messages of vehicle licence plates, bumper stickers and window decals. Fortunately, where I live seems to be a hotspot for these items. Or perhaps unfortunately.
The views here are my own, just mine, no-one else's, unless otherwise acknowledged.
