In Spanish how do you say ‘travel directions’?
Context: “with travel directions do you prefer to consult a map, ask someone for a verbal explanation to reach your destination or guess and follow your own nose.”
And for “guess/follow your nose” type translation I’ve put something that I know it’s wrong. any help? even help wording it better in english would help. thanks
“adivinar hasta que llegue ” – very wrong! i know
“preguntar a alguien por direcciones” or should it be “pedir a alguien por/para direcciones” or “sentido de marchar”??
I so can not write spanish and get so confused!
Bonus question for ignorant non-sprechen de Espanish language twats.
What attributes are most important in en emu:

Does 43T enter in your dreams?
If so how about often?
Can you remember any of these dreams?
Who’s got a good joke?
Damn, LancWhite has deleted. Either that or he’s blocking me?There’s ben a reincarnation
I was just about to answer his latest woe on my feckless advice column.
The Emu’s started learning phonetics. Just the basics on trying to write and read it. So my question to you miserable 43Ters is:
/kæn ju: ri:d ðɪs?/
Can anyone here write or read phonetics?
If so where did you learn it and why?
Do you know of a phonetic online translator? Or of some good online tests, with the answers included? or a very good website you use for it?
If not, do you think you’d ever learn it?
Any thoughts worthy of sharing?
People on this site seem a little skeptical about my success at growing a donut tree in my garden. (Proof: My entry)
So, my question to you is if you could grow a tree in a garden of your own and it could yield anything you wanted what would it be?
Please don’t write ‘a money tree’ as that’s too much of a cliche. So no money trees or credit cards accepted in Emutopia. Sorry, but get over it!
New terms are forever being coined by advertisers. This evening on the TV was a toothpaste advert. Apparently we need to “future proof” our teeth by using brand A.
Have you recently heard any newly invented terms/words?
If so did it made you cringe?
Any modern words/terms you dislike?
1. If you could be a colour which colour would you be and why?
Oh and yes, I also remember that this question has been asked before, a while back, but tough titties. Answer it anyway! NOW!! I bet Donna can find the original question. Then we can all just rehash our original answers for consistency
2. If you could be a number which number would you be and why?
3. If you could be a city or place, which one would you be and why?
Today I stumbled across an interesting enough guy on one of those free online dating sites. Seemed artistic, intelligent and amusing enough, though pretty soon it transpired that he was trying to sell me his artwork. He started by telling me he’d just had his work valued by the Tate Modern, London, which was amazing. Then he claimed to be a “rising star” and asked if I’d be interested in buying some art.
So, what was the worst or bizarrest proposal or date you’ve had? Have you ever used a date site? If so do tell a story. Was it successful for you?
Yes, as you can imagine the Emu just ended up taking the piss (mick) out of him. When he tried asking whether I’d be able to buy from him I retorted with saying he might fall head over heels for my charms and wish to dedicate his entire life’s artwork to me and I be his muse for eternity. He gave up calling me “negative and hostile”. Obviously he didn’t see that as a realistic possibility! I also asked: “Didn’t the Tate Modern wish to purchase any of your work?” opps. 1 down, another 4 million profiles to root through
When was the last time you fixed/repaired or did any DIY?
What was it you did?
Did it work?
Having spent the day wondering whether I can be bothered to mount a mirror on the wall or not, which would mean getting the right bits for hanging it
With this cold weather everyone in my city seems to be coughing or sniffling or sneezing or ill at home with a flu/cold.
So, are you well at the moment?
when were you last ill?
Do you take vitamin c on a regular basis?
Are you one to get ill often?
Do you sneeze much? eg allergy
Give the Kitty an extra cheer as she really doesn’t deserve it.
