Fiesta at the Rec

Today is Day Numero Quatro of the New Year. I'm not sure of the Spanish word for day, and for that matter I'm not really sure of any other Spanish words since I took Latin in high school. My 3 years of Latin study shows up only when movies like Spartacus or Gladiator come on TV because that's where I learned what SPQR means. While the kids in Spanish were doing awesome things like having fiestas, eating great food, and singing La Bamba, I was exploring the not-as-exciting world of a dead language, all the while hoping it would help me on the SAT. But at least we got to watch a movie every Friday!

I've drifted quite a bit from the topic of it being day numero 4 of the new year. I have worked out 4--count 'em!--4 times this year. I am 4 for 4. Of course, I know I can't keep up that pace, but so far I'm making good use of my leisure time instead of sitting on the couch in front of the tv, while at the same time playing on my MacBook (which has officially secured a spot on my favorites list.) Other than my overall desire to get in shape, I have approximately 1 and a half months before we leave on a trip to Mexico. Mexico has beaches. You wear swimsuits on beaches! And people speak Spanish there.

So off I go--to the gym! Maybe after that I will look for a Spanish book.


  1. Fidem meam obligo...I think Latin did more than just give aide on the SAT for provided a lifetime of laughs! I have to go to a training class now. Tempus fugit. Amo, amas, amat - Hils

    P.S. Make sure you check my blog later. Big news on the horizon.

  2. The spanish word for day is el dia. On Wed. night at M.F. I can teach you a couple new words-then you will be all set!

    Hasta luego =)

  3. Instead of seeing who can look the best on the beach, let's see who can put on the most weight between now and then!I think I can take that one- hands down!!!
