The 'Next' button gets a lot of play whenever I'm reading blogs. The anticipation of what's going to pop up is thrilling, kind of like a literary version of Chatroulette, only without the countless number of jerking off men. A fact, for an added side note, that I am wholly grateful for whenever pressing the button. I know sometimes you need to let loose, but I don't want to see you do it... get it, do it....
I always find it fascinating what blogger thinks is related to the previous blog I was reading. I think for the most part they judge by broad strokes of similarities...prime example being language. But beyond that, they do tend to group similarly veined blogs together. Start reading a blog about fashion and the next one might be one by a make-up artist, followed by a fashion photographer, followed by another photographer... you get the idea.
I like to take time away from my blogs (which if you haven't realized is often) and press the next button to see what blogger thinks is a good match for my semi-poetry related blog. What I have been surprised by lately is that I seem to be joined up with Spanish and Portuguese blogs, two languages that I have no real experience with. I can plunk around and say a few words (many of them inappropriate of course) in Spanish. But when it comes to Portuguese I am completely at a loss. I take that back, I know one phrase that my Brazilian friend taught me, yet once again it is a phrase I shouldn't use!
So, in the spirit of joining with Spanish and Portuguese blogs Blogger has bestowed upon my lonely little blog, I thought I would take the time to attempt a few things in the languages of my neighboring bloggers:
¡Hola! Me encanta español! Me encanta salsa, Compay Segunda y Buena Vista Social Club y Picasso y Rivera y Dali!!!!!
Para Portuguese - Eu amo Tribalistas, Água De Beber, bossa nova, e cidade de deus!
Haha....sorry. I had to keep it simple, but that's my small shout out to the two languages I love to hear blaring through speakers...and even more when I can hear it live! To close with another language's word that all three use....Ciao!
