Trip, trippity trip trip
Yes! I have found a cat sitter in the nick of time! I’m going on a 3-week trip starting Saturday night to visit my brother and was going to leave le kitty at a cat hostel, but I don’t like the idea and it isn’t cheap. And now I found someone who lives nearby and will come feed her and play with her every day (my cat met her today and instantly fell in love, which really...
Dr Thomas did write to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) . The response...– Six-year-old girl in the DHC no-fly list as a ‘terror suspect’ Ridiculous.
I’m trying to explain the differences between por qué, porque, por que and porqué to my mom so she’ll finally be able to apply this when she writes and she actually compared me to my uncle when he tries to explain geology stuff to us. Grammar is easy! And the differences make sense, I swear they do…

I just talked with one of my older cousins and she told me that her sister’s boyfriend was shot last night outside their house. The bullet didn’t hit any organs and he’s already recuperating in the hospital, but good god, what the hell? It’s amazing how incredibly lucky he is. Isn’t it stupid? Calling him lucky because, hey, he got shot, but at least he’s alive!...
I went out last night for what was supposed to be a very mellow party, because it was a close friend’s birthday, and ended up going clubbing and getting home at 6 in the morning with smudged makeup and messy hair, which is by default a successful night out. Today was Father’s Day in Argentina, my birthday and my grandpa’s birthday, so I ate lunch with the mildest of hangovers...
Due to popular* demand, here is my polenta recipe: - You need a bag of polenta (if you don’t live in a polenta-eating country, try an Argentinian or Italian food shop) and the softest cheese you can find. - Boil 1 cup of water / milk / water with a bouillon cube of your choice (I just use water) - After the water boils, veeery slowly pour half a cup of polenta into the pot, stirring...
I grated cheese today and somehow managed to grate the fingertip of my left index finger. I didn’t even realize it until I finished and said, “Hey, my finger hurts! Oh, HEY! I’m bleeding!” I now have a very painful and deepish cut going straight from my nail down towards the first joint, and typing is killing me. I should get a band-aid but… they’re in my...

Translating audios like a maniac, for a change, and I just re-read a paragraph and saw that I’d translated “casa,” the Spanish word for “house,” as “cass.” And it’s only 2 pm!
I got a private message on Facebook today from some girl I don’t know, all written in German. After 5 years of not taking any German classes, I’m amazed that I understood almost half of it! And I wrote back, too! (OK, OK, with the help of google translator). I even remember how to conjugate verbs, which is surprising, given my terrible memory. Also, Germans are weird. She calls herself...

I start to invent words and get pissed off at my Word for marking things like ‘submittment’ wrong. One google check later: ”Oh, right, the word is ‘submission.’ Whoops!” My brain is melting, I’m sure.
hennypotter: pasajera: Popcorn and chocolate make me happy. LOVE YOU AND LOVE YOUR EARRINGS! I thought you would :) if I ever get around to visiting my parents and getting my grandma’s footies for you, I’ll see about sending you some earrings too. <3
My mom is drinking my vodka… saying, “I’m bored! Bored people drink, don’t they?” (In her defense, it’s less than a finger of vodka. The rest is coke).
