100% correct too. But I wasn't sure on a bunch of them so I'm surprised.

The last one confused me and I just guessed.

We're triplets, LOL! I got a 100%, but I totally guessed on the last one. I thought "there" had less in common with the other two words, so I assumed they were "proper" (whatever that means).

I just took the test again, deliberately answering several wrong (just to make sure everyone doesn't get 100%). It definitely noted my errors!

Huh. Well, learning languages is supposed to good stuff for your brain, right?

TBH I'm relieved that my schedule is going to be freed up.

I'm not going to be watching LRDS2 and even though I tried Dona Flor because of other things I've seen the main actress in, I couldn't make it through even one episode, and the two shows I'm watching, but behind on are ending this week and not replaced with anything and I'm taking a break from Betty and I feel pretty good about all of that right now.

It'll give me a chance to finish the bio of Winston Churchill and the book of stories by Jorge Luis Borges that I started for some reason. Reading them I feel like my lack of understanding is not entirely my fault, maybe the stories just don't make sense. But I've quit so many other books I tried to read in Spanish I want to give this one another try. And reading with the dictionary by my side does help. Whenever I miss a pivotal word and then look it up and suddenly the whole sentence makes sense its so heartening.

Your plan sounds good, @stealthcacophony! Sometimes you just have to unplug the TV to get any serious reading done. I admire your ambition to read Borges, but don't beat yourself up if you can't get through the entire book right away. I enjoy his stories most when I read them in a reading group, where we help each other unravel the layers of meaning.

If you'd like to try a novel that is short, greatly admired, and by a classic Mexican author, I recommend Las batallas en el desierto, by José Emilio Pacheco. They even made it into a movie called Mariana, Mariana. Here's a free version online:

18 minutes of sparkle, small tiaras, and some pockets. I really have no idea where you would wear dresses like these. It made me miss La Sultana.

I was seeing the news on Facebook and I looked up her filmography...somehow I have never seen anything she's been in, but I still know exactly who she is. 😥

I saw her in Corazón Salvaje. She was amazing. Eva la Trailera is available on Hulu. I might have to try watch it.

I loved her in Eva. She was impossibly adorable! I couldn’t take my eyes off her when she was onscreen.

I always find it interesting that in articles like this, the word “telenovela” is never spoken.
