Notes: Whatcha got cookin'? Leg of lamb? I'm dedicating this one to Mónica (Fallingsta). She was singing Jambalaya the other day, which got me thinking about all of Hank Williams' songs.

Thanks, Danilo, for listening,
and for your kind comment.

Yeah, it's a great song, isn't it?

Hey, good-lookin'! (^_~)
I thought our old recipe was pretty
good.

(^_^) Thanks, Divya.
Posted by HowardH on 01/03/2009.
Divya+Mangeshkar?
Haha, no, I meant:
One part Divya, one part Howard. Stir.
Slowly add music.

Haha, I'm PM-ing you now.
Posted by HowardH on 01/03/2009.
In a manner of speaking, yes.

That's the BEST PART of Midomi: we learn
everybody ELSE's favorite songs.

Thanks for visiting, Bruno.

Happy new year, linguist!

Hey girl! Can I say?"
新年快乐
xin nian kuai le

Is it a good way to wish you a happy
new year?

Around here, Chinese folks still use
the old lunar calendar, and they say
恭喜發財 (Gung Hei Fat Choi) (?) but
in February sometime...
Posted by HowardH on 12/31/2008.
Chinese lunar new year is around late
January to early February. The coming
one is on January 26.
Posted by asteroid on 01/01/2009.
The 26th of this month.
That's what Dewi said, too.

己丑年 ...Is it right?
牛年 "Year of the Bull"
Posted by HowardH on 01/01/2009.
Ahah I've the strong feeling -at first
listening- that I'm missing tons of
double-entendres eheh sounds like a
perfect song for italian "provoloni" :D
it's up to you to investigate on this
one.. just a hint.. it's not a cheese!
:D
Happy New Year Howie!
Posted by Heracleum on 12/31/2008.
Hera. Buon anno!
This song was written in 1951, an
innocent bygone era. If there are
double-entendres in there, I am missing
them, too. (^_^)

I couldn't find anything about a
double-entendre for "provoloni" haha.
Except I found this oner interesting
looking sentence that doesn't seem to be
about cheese...?

Si, ma se Pendolino nun je la fa a
recuperà ce tocca giocà co' Petruzzi
che ar posto de 'e fette c'ha du'
provoloni!

Is is about cheese? LOL!

Let's see, a ball of that cheese weighs
about a kilo or so, so... no that's WAY
too BIG to mean... No, impossible!!!
Posted by HowardH on 12/31/2008.
hahahaaaa cute song.. and this guy is
not so subtle in asking this girl out.
Grade for flirting class : C
Posted by septem2080 on 12/31/2008.
Yeah, not too subtle. LOL. I think he
must not have read your blog, Dewi.

He goes straight for "keeping steady
company". Well, look at it this way: If
this approach didn't scare her off,
maybe they eventually got married.
(?)... It could happen!
Posted by HowardH on 12/31/2008.
but she will be scared. believe me
Posted by septem2080 on 12/31/2008.
It couldn't happen?
There's no such thing as love at first
sight? Awww, where's the romance in
that?
Posted by HowardH on 12/31/2008.
What are the odds? 12 to 7.
Btw, I think Chinese new year in 2009
would be in Jan 26th. Gong xi fa cai.
It's going to be the bull year..
Posted by septem2080 on 01/01/2009.
12 to 7 ???... Haha!

After I typed that about
love-at-first-sight I was thinking about
it... I think it happens a lot more with
men than with women. What do you think?

> "Hey, good-lookin'
> Whatcha got cookin'?"

In Japan they seem to mix lunar
calendar stuff with western calendar
stuff, so it is now already the Year of
the Bull starting today. (No need to
wait for January 26th.)
Posted by HowardH on 01/01/2009.
more men than women? And I thought men
are more rationalist then women.
Posted by septem2080 on 01/02/2009.
you sure it's love or lust at first
sight?
Posted by septem2080 on 01/02/2009.
There's a difference?

> I thought men are more rationalist

Not when it comes to love and lust.
Posted by HowardH on 01/02/2009.
Ohhh , forgot to mention... you got me
snapping my fingers and tapping my foot
all the way through this song! ;)
Posted by Fallingsta on 12/31/2008.
Snap 'n' tap away, monita.
This song gets me chair dancing, too.
Posted by HowardH on 01/02/2009.
Awww this is sooo lovely! Thanks for the
invite, cariño!! (^___^)
Hmmm what about some "pata de cerdo a
la canaria" jejeje to give the lamb a
rest ? (Those left overs almost killed
me! jajaja)

I love this Howie, your sweet tender
voice is the perfect complement for a
nice warm ADO! (^_~)
Lara, you are so right my dear! ;)

What about a big assorted box of ADO's
to close the year eh?
FELIZ AÑO NUEVO CIELO!!
Posted by Fallingsta on 12/31/2008.
what is an ADO ?
Posted by misspronce on 12/31/2008.
Ahhhh , Lara, an ADO is a very special
type of hug, the best kind if you ask my
humble opinion! ;)
Posted by Fallingsta on 12/31/2008.
Oh, that sounds GOOOOOD!
I found a recipe for PATA and a fun
blog about life in the Canary Islands:
http://tinyurl.com/PataDeCerdo

We are still eating leftovers, too. We
have enough food for another week, I
think. Haha!

Mmm, thanks for the assorted ADOs,
Móni. A small shipment of ADOs is
ALREADY on its way to Gran Canaria for
you.
"Happy 2009" to you, too!
Posted by HowardH on 12/31/2008.
Ohhh you found a great recipe then and
in english, excellent!:D
Btw, I love 1:06 "I know I've been
tooken"! ;)
Posted by Fallingsta on 12/31/2008.
rhymes with "lookin" haha!
I know. It made me laugh, singing it.

Aren't the food pictures on that blog
delicious-looking? (I must be hungry...)
Posted by HowardH on 12/31/2008.
hmm yes!! ñammm ñammm! Hey they even
put the bocata picture!
I have hardly eaten anything today..
saving myself for tonight! :-P
Posted by Fallingsta on 12/31/2008.
Does it mean "sandwich"?
(My dictionary has "bocadillo" but...)

> ñammm ñammm
> mjam mjam
> Yum yum
ahahahahaha

Mmmm, yeah, I like the look of the
"croque monsieur".
I'm definitely going to go have lunch
-- NOW.
Posted by HowardH on 12/31/2008.
in bahasa we say "nyam nyam" how to
pronounce it? exactly like "ñammm
ñammm"
Posted by septem2080 on 12/31/2008.
Sounds delish in any language!!
Posted by HowardH on 12/31/2008.
Hé happy Monica ^^ to be invited by
such a warm, tender, deep and "smiling
!" voice !
You invited her for...cooking with you,
mmmm mjam mjam what's on the menu
tonight ??? Best Wishes to you Howard !
Lara
Posted by misspronce on 12/31/2008.
Mmmm, I love the way you spelled "mmm
mjam mjam", Lara. I believe you know how
to enjoy good food, haha!

Thanks for listening. Happy New Year to
you.
And here's an "ADO" for you too, haha!


Móni made the word up, I think. It's
short for "abrazo de oso". She always
gives me a warm, sisterly hug (right,
Móni? <wink!>) when I need one.
Posted by HowardH on 12/31/2008.
Oh yes I explained the story to Lara
ahhaa she knows all about ADO's now !
;)
And yes, you have a full supply,
granted for life!! (^___^)
