VAL la pena de vegades!
Sometimes, 6 hours of studying Catalan is worth it. The best part, or at least the most entertaining has been looking at idioms, locutions and eufemismes - n.iii.ce...spelled that in Catalan, that would be euphemisms. Ways of saying things that are a little different.
Here's some of the fruits of my work:
To be useless, or to do something useless: picar ferro fred - hammer cold iron. Good imagery there.
To have diarrea - perdre la clau del cul - loose the key to your *ss. JEJEJEJEJEJEJEJEJEEEEE
A person who is really irritiating: un torracollons - a tower of, well you might be more familiar with cojones, but a tower of balls....hehehhehehe
A super wimp, a cockhold - un pet aviciat - a weak fart! OMG I am dying over here!
Someone who has no opinion, wishy-washy - un pixafreda - a cold pisser! Not enough heat inside to warm their piss. I LIKE that image.
A polleguerra is part of a set phrase, it literally means a chicken war - more or less I think - it means crazy, fitting, no?
Oh, and you have to go here and check this out...
I handed in my next assignment for the Catalan course, cross all your fingers and light all your candles (hey! It's a Catholic country!). EEK!
