Mexi-Vocabulario: ¡Mitotero!

Mexi-Vocabulario: ¡Mitotero! | mexicanismos | Scoop.it

Mitotero, the only word in that sentence that stood out to me. Mostly in telenovelas and variety shows is where I’ve heard it before since at our house metiche and chismoso were much more common. And apparently there are a couple of different definitions of what exactly mitotero means.

 

El Urban Dictionary says - being up, or getting mixed up, in business or information that has no relationship to you whatsoever. Being up in the mix where you DON’T belong. Prying into the affairs and business of others...

Q’Viva The Chosen – Jennifer Lopez Returns to Her Roots

Q’Viva The Chosen – Jennifer Lopez Returns to Her Roots | mexicanismos | Scoop.it

In the previews and the first episode of the brand new Nuyorican co-produced ‘Q’Viva The Chosen’ Jennifer Lopez proclaims ”This is like being able to really, really go – I am Latina and this is who we are… isn’t it fabulous, isn’t it amazing, doesn’t it bring tears to your eyes and make you want to dance, smile, and stay up all night?”

 

In truth, JLo, La Diva del Bronx, and her now ex-husband Marc Anthony are hoping this new collaboration of theirs will do precisely that for viewers of their new Latin American talent search show on Univision. Or at the very least, have them tune in to watch...

Ay, Ay, Ay, Consuela!! – Should We Love Her or Hate Her? | mexicanismos | Scoop.it

Honestly! I’m not sure whether I should be offended or just plain tickled with the increasing popularity of this crazy little cartoon character named Consuela I’ve only recently discovered.

 

According to her creators on Family Guy, she is the leader of the Quahog Maids’ Union and Consuela is every bit the typical stereotype of a Latina housemaid… of Mexican descent according to the undercurrent of mostly young people who’ve taken her on as a “champion” of sorts for housemaids everywhere...

Not to replace the original spoon you can eat, of course – the tortilla! – these crafty little creations, you’ve got to admit, look kind of interesting. Like we could all be shopping for them at a store near us in a couple of months, but alas, at the moment these spoon-shaped nachos (spoonachos, how clever is that?) are only the brainchild of Serbian designer and innovator Denis Bostandzic...

Why Spanglish Was a Bad Word for Most of My Life

Why Spanglish Was a Bad Word for Most of My Life | mexicanismos | Scoop.it

Spanglish! It’s a love-hate relationship I’ve had with the language. Growing up it was Spanish at home, English at school. In truth, I don’t even remember talking in Spanish with my siblings… and even now it still feels a little awkward to do so – like it is unnatural between us or something. That’s probably because as soon as we all started speaking English we just began communicating with each other almost exclusively in that language...

¡Mexico Lindo y Querido!

¡Mexico Lindo y Querido! | mexicanismos | Scoop.it

It doesn’t take much to send me flying down memory lane about the good old times we used to have in Mexico. Life there has always seemed so much simpler than life here, at least for us who have always gone down there to visit only, never to live permanently. Every time we get to reminiscing about those times we can’t help but compare how carefree everything is in Mexico. What to eat and what to eat next are about all the hustle and bustle you have to worry about when you’re there… and even then, not so much because usually your family will get deeply offended if you don’t accept their offer to eat at their homes...

¡Pásame el Pan… Pan Bien Mexicano! | mexicanismos | Scoop.it

Got a sweet tooth? Get ready to eat your heart out! First things first, I am a sucker for pan dulce - just thought it would be appropriate to make that disclaimer. My favorite is the one that’s just sweet enough. Not too sweet. Not too flavorless. Unless it’s bolillo bread then all bets are off. Bolillo bread is like an open canvas, ready to be transformed into whatever tasty goodness your pancita desires. Think tortas de jamón, fajita, pollo, or just big chunks of this bread dunked into a hot cup of café con leche… mmm, ya me dio hambre. But I digress...
