It's like you are trilingual. English, Spanish, and something else.
We have six



I don't get it. I knew what clip you meant (and it was fun to watch it again), but it was all English.

It's like you are fluent in geek culture. You have all these references to shows and books that I would never get without googling them.

Well, I've never seen "Firefly" or read a graphic novel (comic book). So I don't think so.

Neither have I, but I consider myself very well steeped in geek culture. Granted, comic books and Star Trek are two of my greatest weaknesses in that area.

Well, I confess I've seen most of the modern Justice League and Batman cartoons.

Palabra: Lloriquear


Today's SWD means to whine/snivel. A related word is obviously llorar, which means to cry.

A question for the advanced readers is whether the quear suffix can be found in other words to make them a diminutive form?

Ejemplo time.

No puedes dicir "no" a una mujer lloriqueado. = I can't say "no" to a whining woman.

The letters "qu" are to help with pronunciation. They are used similarly in quiero, quitate, quemar.

Similar diminutive forms are:
besoquear = "to cover with kisses"
lavotear = " to wash quickly and badly"
bailotear = "to dance about"
corretear = "to run about"
juguetear = "to toy with"

This question looks familiar.



In English this kind of ceiling is called lequear or lacunar

I stand corrected. No Geek could not have seen Firefly.

I've always felt that geek culture is seriously unrepresented in the casino industry.

I have the feeling we've been over this word before. Is there any way the search function can display the results as posts rather than threads?

There's that feeling again... A hazzard in long, long, long, really long threads, I guess.

Anyway, it's not a word or a form of word that gets much use. I'm uncertain how to even use it.

That would be "lloriqueaNdo," and I'm pretty sure the right expression would be "...a una mujer QUE ESTA lloriqueaNdo."

I don't even know which one's the series and which one's the movie.

Well, it seems real geeks didn't like Babylon 5 anyway. Maybe it was too deep for them?

You know, for a small, cult following, it achieved imrpessive results: a five year run (planned as a five year run, too), plus 4 TV movies, a half-season spinoff, two attempts at further spinoffs, three book series and a bunch of related books. Not bad, really, even if it all happened on syndication and then on cable.
