See, I thought you were going to write that you were looking forward to reading the foreign language writing on the bottle! You had me fooled. :)




You know you really are when you also thought this and you feel very disappointed that it was not to read the label, and, you now are curious about the labels from vodka bottled in Sweden,Finland, Russia, etc., and now want to buy them so you can read and compare them...and you don't even drink.

LOL!
Try Marca or El Mundo Deportivo, these should provide a good overview of the Spanish football. Also, I collected some great fun accounts in Spanish in this thread :)

Except that my roommates don't know less-good vodka from worse vodka, and always buy Smirnoff, but it always just says, "smirnofskaya vodka" on the bottle, and Stoli says, "Stoli" on the bottle with a russian L for the liter mark. Not that interesting. Now, had it been some of the more RUSSIAN vodkas, and not those just popular in USA, then, yeah, I'd be happy to read it :)

You know you're a language (and math!) nerd when you're tempted to take out a textbook on advanced Calculus in
Spanish (and French too :D) from the library :)

Colin (English soldier): You speak English good.

Peter (German soldier): I speak English well.

YKYALN when, flipping channels on the TV, you stop to watch an evangelical sermon in Spanish! Something you'd
always pass on if it were plain old English. Anything for target language practice!
