My Dream Mexican House

My Dream Mexican House | mexicanismos | Scoop.it

The possibilities of me living in this “Dream Mexican House” are probably next to none. For one thing, it is impeccably clean and we all know it is impossible to keep a house that clean! Especially when there are huercos running around everywhere making a big old mess! Second of all, finding those furnishings in all of those colors would take way much more patience than what I have. And finally, because when I showed this picture to Anjelica this is exactly what happened...

Mexi-Vocabulario: Arrullar

Mexi-Vocabulario: Arrullar | mexicanismos | Scoop.it

Arrullar. To put one to sleep. Or in this tertiary definition on WordReference.com, which by the way is my favorite, it means to enamorar con palabras dulces (to make one fall in love with sweet words). ¡Ay caray! ¡Qué románticon!

 

In reality my reason for selecting this word is much less on the amoroso side...

De Shopping At Walmart for Dial™ #NutriSkin ™ Lotion

De Shopping At Walmart for Dial™ #NutriSkin ™ Lotion | mexicanismos | Scoop.it

Lotions aren’t really my thing. Maybe that’s because my earliest memory of using any lotion is of my mother rubbing it all over my face before church or something. It was Texas, it was summer, and it was hot! That lotion just made me feel like I was suffocating. Anjelica, on the other hand, can dedicate a good chunk of her shopping time to finding just the right lotion for herself. So when I told her I was participating in a social shopper insights study for Collective Bias and that I would have to try out the new Dial™ NutriSkin™ lotion line at Walmart, she made it pretty clear she wanted to come with. ”Okay, vamonos…

All For One or One For All: Drama on Homage to Chespirito

All For One or One For All: Drama on Homage to Chespirito | mexicanismos | Scoop.it

They looked so happy on the set of El Chavo del 8. All friends up to puro borlote in the vecindario for so many years. Forty years to be exact. Who would have ever thought that in their Golden years the cast of El Chavo would be going through such drama? Well it’s Carlos Villagrán, better known as the lovable cacheton ‘Quico’ who seems to be calling foul on this one. The 68 year old actor told Mexican media outlets today that he has not been invited to the multinational “América celebra a Chespirito” homage that’s being planned across Latin America and the United States on February 19, and that he wouldn’t be a part of such an event even if he was invited...

Quebradita on Prime Time – How Wendy’s is Doing it Right! | mexicanismos | Scoop.it

I LOVE a great funny commercial, and one featuring the popular Mexican dance of Quebradita definitely fits the bill! On Super Bowl Sunday while most of us were too busy evaluating the million dollar ads being unveiled for the first time during the big game, this little gem was already airing on Spanish-language networks like Univision and Telefutura. I have to say, out of all the new commercials that I’ve seen lately, this one is hands down my absolute favorite...

Because had they watched this comedic drama of a runaway hit, they might have avoided themselves a little, or a lot of the hot water their currently in for putting out their most recent “Hotness comes in all shapes and sizes” ad for their Curve ID line of jeans...

Q & A Jose Luis Zelaya: Student Crocheting for his Education | mexicanismos | Scoop.it

A young man paying for his higher education by crocheting and selling beanies?! I had to find out more. This week when NBC Latino ran their story on Houston’s own Jose Luis Zelaya about how the 24 year old has been crocheting to earn his masters degree at Texas A&M, I knew I had to track him down. I did and what the Honduran-born undocumented grad student had to tell me really connected with me on a personal level. Zelaya is upbeat and passionate, positive about everything, and very open about his tumultuous journey to get to where he is today...

He used to annoy the living crap out of me. What would possess anyone to watch this guy? He doesn’t even talk! That was my main reason for disliking Mr. Bean so much. He made stupid faces and acted like an idiot. Was he supposed to be an alien or something? I never watched enough of the show to find out. Instead I’d say “ugh, that stupid Mr. Bean is on.
