Meme, meme, meme time! / My language of mine / Driving++
So it turns out I am a big loser, a VERY big nerd and quite a weird guy. Does not really surprise me - Well, I feel happy about being that nerdy (and, yes, I answered with the truth) - How the hell did Steve, Alexander, Per-Arne and Martin make it? My hat off to you guys! (OTOH, it should not surprise me having that many über-nerds in Debian ;-) )
Isaac blogged about lack of a way of not using possessives in English, and he says that he thinks that Spanish has the same problem - In theory, yes. In practice, it is even greater. It is very common to hear people say, for example, su mamá de él (his mother of him) instead of simply su mamá (his mother), as there is ambiguity between formal-second-person and third person. Yes, that’s a mistake and cannot be tolerated in educated circles - but nevertheless, it is very common.
My coccyx still hurts badly since last Wednesday’s fall. Yesterday I went to have some X-ray shots of my whole column (at US$200, they’d better be worth something!), I’ll get them today to a doctor. But at least something good came out of it: I was not in shape to drive there, so Nadezhda took the car for the first time into the wilderness of Mexico City. Congratulations, Cosa! :-D She was so happy and confident she even gave a ride home afterwards to her sister and nieces, who dropped by to visit us.
