A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush.
Mais vale um pássaro na mão do que dois voando.

Two heads are better than one
Duas cabeças pensam melhor do que uma

The more you get, the more you want
Quanto mais se tem, mais se quer

Reasons Why English is so hard

Corbis-42-16022441

There is no egg in eggplant nor ham in hamburger; neither apple nor pine in pineapple.

English muffins weren't invented in England or French fries in France.

Sweetmeats are candies while sweetbreads, which aren't sweet, are meat.

Quicksand works slowly, boxing rings are square and a guinea pig is neither from Guinea nor is it a pig.

And why is it that writers write but fingers don't fing, grocers don't groce and hammers don't ham?

Expressões do mundo do Entretenimento

Corbis-42-24003185

Last night on TV there was this show about that actor who tries to get his big break in show biz. People thought it was a rerun but actually it was a pilot for a sitcom. It´s a spin-off of a series that was really popular some time ago. It´s a spoof of Hollywood and its stars but I thought it was way too slapstick for me. Even that famous actress, what´s her name again, had a walk-on. She had a one-liner but her acting was a show-stopper.
