And yes, Wind.  That's much better.  Not exactly the correct usage of hace mucho tiempo, but it's close enough to pass in a Spanish speaking country.  They'll just laugh at you and call you a gringo.


How about "hace dos anos" instead?

And eh, I'll live if they call me a gringo. It's the truth.
What foes are we to meet in battle that we have not vanquished in the shadows of the human soul? What Daemons scream that have not cried to us from the dark places of the mind? What fear have we of death who know there is immortality in the great and noble deeds of men?

I would appreciate if my posts weren't changed anymore.
I understand why you did it and it doesn't need to be done anymore.
thanks.

Quote from: shrodinger's twat
Being someone who identified as lesbian for most of my life I now identify to other people as bi, not because I felt I changed, but because when I realized I loved a man my friends had a hard time wrapping their heads around it. I got tired of explaining that it wasn't all guys it was just him.

I still identify to myself and my husband as lesbian, I just happened to find "the perfect girl" for me in a guy. If it wasn't for him I'd still be purely pussy.

:uhm:



Available here - an SA thread on Lesbos Island suing the Greek government to stop the use of the term "lesbian." Post was made in response to one describing the state of use, stereotyping, and restrictions of the terms "straight," "lesbian," and "bisexual."

I honestly don't know, she hasn't replied in the thread yet.

I think she's trying to say that she's still a lesbian, but she just happened to fall in love with a man.

I expect so, but still, it's a weird sentence to read the first time.

That's not the statement that you made though - you said that it was still weird.

Why is it still weird even after it has been explained to you?

It's just not something you hear every day.
I don't have anything against lesbians if that's what you're trying to get at.

How about "hace dos anos" instead?

And eh, I'll live if they call me a gringo. It's the truth.

You, sir, would be called a gabacho.  Gringo's call gabachos gringos.
Wind said I needed to put cool lyrics in my signature:

:calvin: What about the voice of Geddy Lee
:calvin: How did it get so high
:calvin: I wonder if he speaks like an ordinary guy
:hobbes: I know him and he does
:calvin: Well you're my fact checking cuz

Either one would be true, to the best of my knowledge.

Gabacho is the harsher term and is almost exclusively used for the purpose you described in Mexico and the Western US.  In fact, it's usage stems from Mexican slang as opposed to centralized language.  In Central America, we're Gringos.  Nicaraguans don't know what a gabacho is.  Gringo IS the universal term for foreigner.

Gringos don't call gabachos gringos, users of Mexican slang (i.e. gang members and Mexican people who are lower on the socioeconomic ladder) call gringos gabachos. 

Trust me, in all the time I spent in Mexico, I was only called a gabacho ONCE.
Merciful Father, I have squandered my days with plans of many things. This was not among them. But at this moment, I beg only to live the next few minutes well. For all we ought to have thought, and have not thought; all we ought to have said, and have not said; all we ought to have done, and have not done; I pray thee God for forgiveness.
