Hyper Latent


Comida Tipica

You may or may not have noticed that I am attempting to interject more hyperlinks in my posts (I have retroactively scattered links throughout my former posts, many of them referencing past writings, because I often have reoccurring themes). I realized that I might as well utilize this cyberspatial interstitial forum and expand beyond the simple postance of escritura. Maybe I should start thinking about creating a whole Manderson themed on-line universe, replete with ads for logo´d undies and bubble bath sud friendly action figures. I could design hoodies, cars, tattoos with those weird alien faces that I like to draw. Ah yes, the possibilities are endless. Veniendo pronto a una pagina de web cerca de ti!
I have been reading 100 Years of Solitude, Cien Años de Soledad, in both English and Spanish. When I first tried reading it in Spanish a month ago, I could understand maybe a few words per page. It’s extremely satisfying as throughout the learning process I recognize a little bit more each time I try. Now I recognize different past tense conjugations, more words, and more of the connecting pieces like “como,” “le, lo, la, se” “èl mismo,” etc. It still takes me a half hour to slug through a page, but I’m beginning to get that feeling like when I used to try to read “Green Eggs and Ham,” and it was always impossible, until one day I picked it up and read it aloud to mi tìa and it was easy! It will be a while ’til I get anywhere near the “easy” point with Cien Años de Soledad, however.
