I've never even heard of any before. I guess there are some but I've been probably thinking them as Spaniards instead of Mexicans if I've ever seen them anywhere.

I love the term "Spaniard."  It's delightfully quaint and archaic.  Also, when people hear it they know precisely what you mean.

Not really. Tortillas are sold at supermarkets and there are some tex mex-related restaurants but I don't think those kind of things have much to do with actual Mexico. I don't think people even know much about Mexican food.

Here is a fool proof tip.  If the packaging on the food does not contain a picture similar to this, it cannot possibly be Mexican food.  Grin

How did you get that photo of my Ukrainian Jewish cousins--from left to right, Shmuel, Yossi, Natan, Moshe, Grigory??  My aunt Sonia (their mother) makes dynamite pierogis with a dash of cilantro and a sprinkling of cumin.

You must be very proud of yourself for a job well done.  Is this what you do for a living?  I know...you must be a New Age pseudo-gestalt psychotherapist, right?

Here in the South, people will say "Spanish" as a catch-all ethnic term for any Hispanic/Latin American.  To me Spanish as a nationality = Spaniard.  When I say Spaniard, even the most ignorant person knows I mean a person whose nationality is Spain, not a random Peruvian, Puerto Rican, or Panamanian.

Long story short besides my reg job I also fill in now for this Serbian guy at his building while he's in vacation . So I am on call go there whenever I can or I am needed . The woman locked herself out and then called a number where they told her she might have to wait for an hour before someone gets there. That already angries her. Then they call me I get there in far less than an h more like twenty minutes and the rest is history.  She was hysterical. I kept my calm in insulting her though.

So, funny story, did you know they put lights in glove compartments? And that they're really difficult to notice if you're not aware of them? And they don't turn off when you turn the engine off, so they can drain your battery gradually if you absentmindedly leave your glove compartment open? Meaning that you'd have to continually get jumps from campus safety and drive it around for about an hour, but just when you think you're good, it goes out again a day or two later? And that if you take it to an Autozone in a sketchy neighborhood, they'll tell you the battery's fine and you'll see people selling bootleg DVDs and suspiciously inexpensive Beats by Dre while they charge it? And that it's apparently totally okay for Autozone workers to smoke on the job in Tennessee? And that parking your car under a tree for a few days with no way to move it will result in it being drenched in bird dung? And that if this goes on for a gorram week, it'll drive you pretty insane?

BECAUSE I CERTAINLY DIDN'T.

I'm teaching my new flat mate some cool Finnish habits. We both are sitting in front of our laptops and neither of us are speaking to each other.

It means both of you acquired peace and thousands around you are being saved. Or preach and sometimes use words too.

The depth of your modesty humbles me and brings me to a flood of tears of repentance.

That's a good start. Now spend a little more time in OC.net and you can apply for Russian citizenship

I've already spent waaaayyyyyyyyyyyy too much time on OC.net., not that that will stop me from "spending" more time here, mind you.  I would, however, much prefer Ukrainian citizenship to Russian, thank you very much.

So know I have a Mexican flatmate. A Mexican flatmate with  stereotypical bushy moustache. I wouldn't be anyhow suprised if I saw him wearing a sombero.

If he can cook chimichangas, he's a keeper.
WOW guys. Just... wow.

I love the term "Spaniard."  It's delightfully quaint and archaic.  Also, when people hear it they know precisely what you mean.

Could you explain that, please  Cool?

Here in the South, people will say "Spanish" as a catch-all ethnic term for any Hispanic/Latin American.  To me Spanish as a nationality = Spaniard.  When I say Spaniard, even the most ignorant person knows I mean a person whose nationality is Spain, not a random Peruvian, Puerto Rican, or Panamanian. 
In New Mexico, many call themselves Spanish, because their ancestors really are from Spain.

You found that offending? Come on, it was a joke. I actually like this guy more than my Finnish flatmate.
