I’m still swampy time-wise, so I’ll be keeping the schedule to Mondays and Thursdays, occasionally breaking for special theme weeks I’ll make sure to note in advance (parasite week is coming verrrry soon although now I’m starting to think I should save it for Halloween time). There are a few things I’ve been meaning to share and have been neglectful in doing. Venezuelan Sayings has been featured in some wonderful blogs and articles, which I’m very appreciative about :) I thought I’d share a couple that feature interviews where I explained what this blog is and some of the motivation behind it. They are:
Queen Pepiada (which btw is a great resource for Venezuelans in the UK)
Venezuelan Sayings has also made an appearance on La Patilla and Pixable.
In any case, next week I’ll be doing two off-color sayings (it’ll be a surprise!) with the explanation that I’ve been avoiding doing some that are inappropriate due to sexism/racism. The two next week are being done specifically because they’re not derogatory, which is why the others that have been suggested I’ve declined doing. So for example, while the dicho about the prostitute throwing a bottle fast or chain-smoking are quite popular (from my husband’s friends and more!), they won’t be making an appearance on this blog.
Thanks once again to all of you who have shared, enjoyed, and message me about this blog! You’re all very lovely :) Also, you guys have sent me so many new dichos and I am very excited about all of them. I am lacking sayings that aren’t CCS/Merida/Maracaibo, sooooo if you have those, feel free to send them my way!
