Hello, everybody! And thank you so much for showing your support to 3 Blogger Friends. We really appreciate it ;). Today I have no pictures to show, just a rant, I guess ... It was a blah day; I hate those, don't you? I didn't go to the library, I woke up later than I should have and continued filling in job applications ... I did run on the treadmill at least, that was probably the highlight of my day, pathetic, right?
Oh, I also got October's issue of Glamour magazine in the mail today. David got an annual subscription on Groupon for really cheap (I think it was $10 including shipping); I couldn't say no, hehe. In less than 2 weeks I got August, September and October's issues, what the hell?
Oh, oh, and something super funny happened to me this morning! A beggar rang our bell, which had never happened before, aaaand, as soon as I opened the door he said, "Is you mom or dad at home?" Wtf?! Did he think I was a child??? Muahaha!
Anyway, have I ever told you that I write down the new words in English I learn? Do you wanna see the ones I've been incorporating lately?
PB & J ... Does any non-native English speaker know what this stands for? ... Peanut butter and jelly sandwich, hehe. And Pam Beesley and Jim, if you watch The Office.
Sport as a synonym of kid, such as in "Well done, sport!".
Milf: mother I'd like to f*ck.
To have it bad for someone: to have a huge crush on someone.
The 11th hour: the last moment when change is possible.
I've also noticed that Americans use lots and lots of acronyms! OCD, DUI, ED ...
I love learning new words but trying to memorize them can be overwhelming. I get so frustrated when I ask David, "What does that mean?" and the second he starts explaining the meaning of that term I realize he's already defined it for me before :/. It happens pretty much every single day. Last night, we were watching The Office and someone used the expression "willy-nilly" and David went, "Were we watching this episode when you asked me what "willy-nilly" meant?" I did remember that one, though, hehe ;).
By the way, have you ever watched TV or Netflix with subtitles? We leave the subtitles on most of the times and although I don't always read them, I usually peek at them when conversations get difficult for me to understand, such as when people whisper or have a very sharp southern accent. Anyhow, I recommend you try having the subtitles on just so you can have some fun. The way they describe sounds is hilarious! Every time the intro of Parks and Recreations starts the subtitles say "triumphant song" and when Bart Simpson laughs, "laughing mischievously", haha.
All right, I guess I've rambled too much already. Hope you're all getting ready for the weekend! ;D It's a long one here, yay!
