I've been going to Spanish classes for a while now. Every Monday night since September and it is getting exciting to be able to exchange a bit more information than Me llamo Helen or Como estas.
My favorite new word is 'baruso'. Soy baruso (I'm rubbish) or Esta baruso (that's rubbish) two expressions that come into use fairly frequently.
The lovely Julianna cracked me up yesterday describing her favorite spanish food was...
Juliana: Ohh what is it called... It looks like shit... huh... sorry, I mean it's in a shape of a turd.. huh... sorry, I mean it's covered in chocolate.
Indeed, churro is a deep-fried dough snack that one eats with sugar or chocolate. I know blokes laugh quite easily at poop jokes (most likely Steven Novak), but coming from a girl as sweet as Julianna, it was very unexpected.
