I don’t think my last post went over too well. Although it was a runaway success hit-wise, visitors were apparently all thumbs when it came time to formulate a response. (I completely understand. I too get anxious and self-conscious when trying to communicate laughter virtually. Is hahaha stupid? Bwahaha demonic? Ha stuck-up? Jaja pretentious? Heh heh creepy? Hee hee hee infantile? Tee hee pathetic?) I also received two concerned messages from acquaintances who expressed sympathy and wondered how it was possible for these ad-makers to have it in for me, their sweet, innocuous friend. Hmm. I won’t attempt to explain my humor, nor will I try to defend it. The only way to remedy this is, I believe, to subject you to another round of it. And so, with no further ado, I share the latest batch of eyebrow-arching and interesting Google searches. I couldn’t make these up.
how to beg in spanish colombian – I have too much self-respect to beg in any language, and so should you. (Even when I really, really, really want to.) That is, unless I’ve arrived late for my international flight. Then, the phrase you want to know is ¿Con cuánto arreglamos?
animal native to spain that squeals during the night – I just imagine the quaking terror with which this query was typed. They had better pray it’s not one of Hogzilla’s long-lost European cousins.
i need to further my spanish by talking wit with someone do you know anyone – We have a whole host of Spanish speakers standing by right now, awaiting your call. Pablo Vargas, Ana Feria, Santiago Quintero, and many, many more. Call now or send a text to 9898 with the word SPANISHBUD.
how to you say i dont know what you are saying but i just love your spanish accent in spanish – Been there, said that. (And even heard it a few times, too– gringas speaking Spanish with a Colombian accent are not a dime a dozen where I live. Many seem to find it mesmerizing.)
latino song with words about las vacas – This seems just like the kind of vague, hopeless search I would try to pull off.
what do i like most about my job as health care interpreter? – If you have to ask Google, odds are you don’t really like it all that much, eh?
how to call/someone snoopy in spanish/as a joke – Oye, ¡Snoopy! No, ¡mentiras! ¡Por molestar! No me pares bolas, parce. Victor, ¿qué más?
native spanish speakers consider it in poor taste to mention body parts in a direct way – Noted.
a bat by any other name – Would still be our dearly beloved Vocabat.
what does estar encima de el guayabo mean – I looked into this, and it appears to be sexual. It’s unclear for me, though. Feel free to enlighten me, readers.
what do little kids say in spanish for a “boo boo”? – Great question, and very relevant for me and my work. Here’s what I’ve found: ayayay (Colombia, Costa Rica), pupa (Mexico, Spain), nana (Argentina), buba (Argentina?), yaya (Peru, Chile, Cuba), nanay (Peru). Anyone know any others?
colombia’s famous animal – How to pick? Colombia has the highest rate of species by area unit worldwide, the largest number of endemisms (species that are not found naturally anywhere else) worldwide, more bird species than North America and Europe combined, the largest number of terrestrial mammals species in the world, the largest number of amphibians in the world, and so on and so forth. It’s a fauna paradise, and you want to make just one of its species famous? (But, really–if you know the answer, please inform me.)
select the best translation for “vocabat” – Please. You’re making me blush.
what do you do when you find a word whose meaning you don’t know? in vocabulary – You just think about it and turn it over in your mind all day. If it’s meant to be, its meaning will eventually come to you. If not, I guess you’re just SOL.
how do you people find my blog? – Yeah, you bunch of weirdos. Scram. Only normal readers need apply from now on.
want a divice to put on ears, when someone speak spanish it tell you in english – The one and only time that the Patents search filter could have proved useful on Google Search. As it was not applied, however, this poor soul tragically alighted on a mere Spanish blog.
