#6: or Chayanne’s “Tiempo de Valz”.
I used to work in the shipping department for a cable company, and every morning I would walk around the different departments and say Good Morning in English, Spanish & Polish (I’d say 45% were Hispanic and 45% were Polish). One day I heard one of the Mexican ladies call my name, I said “Que pasa?” (What’s up?) and then heard the Polish ladies giggle. I asked why they were laughing and they explained that they it sounded like I said “Kielbasa” (Polish Sausage).
A little off topic, but #13 reminded me of a client’s house I went to. I used to work as an interpreter and when I went to this lady’s house, her living room had a bunch of frames… with the picture that comes with it.
I can relate to your story. I lost my mom when I was 8 in 1989. And now that I’m older I do think about what would’ve happened had she still been alive. It’s amazing to think that she’d be 68 years old now. But I’m also fortunate to have been raised by my sister. Not only that but she is my half-sister on my mother’s side. She lost most of her youth, coming from Mexico to help my mother 4 years before. My sister could have easily said, “Go live with you father.”, but she chose to raise me to be the man that I am today. Happy Mother’s Day.
“Marley & Me” was very emotional for me even though I don’t have a dog. My fiancee watched it with me and she didn’t feel what I did. I guess it’s a guy thing.
“Crash” still gets me every time in two very intense scenes. The first one, where Matt Dillon’s character has to save the girl he molested. And then later when the store owner goes to Michael Pena’s character’s house. When he pulls out that gun and that little girl runs to protect her dad, that is such an intense scene for me that even thinking about it is bringing tears to me eyes.
“Toy Story 3” - That scene at the end where Andy is moving on. I remember my fiancee and I went to see it at the movies. I looked and saw her crying, but I didn’t want her to see me crying so I had to hold it in. Then we look, and this old man, sitting there in the movie theatre by himself a couple of rows in front of us, was wiping tears from his face.
And even though this is not a movie, but the one episode from “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air”, where Will’s dad comes to visit, that scene at the end has such an impact on me because I can relate. My dad left when I was a kid, and I remember how excited I used to get when he would come visit. I remember, ever since I saw that episode, I have always gotten so emotional. And then, when I was around 20, I moved for a few months to my dad’s house with his current wife. Because he was so distant (unlike his wife, my older half-sister and her husband who were very welcoming and nice even though I had just met them for the first time in my life), now when I see that episode, it’s even stronger.
Other movies that have made me cry: My Life, Warrior, Life is Beautiful, Selena, La Bamba and Instructions Not Included.
Um… #3, not a Disney Movie. It bothered me so much that I had to comment before continuing.
#8 I still don’t know them. I used to be part of my church choir, I used to read in mass, I used to be part of my youth group, I even was Juan Diego for 5 years. And in all that time, I still don’t know all my prayers.
#9 Well, there goes my Netflix DVD Queue.

When I was 8 or 9 an older cousing gave me an item in the shape of a candy bar. I unwrapped it and saw the Hershey’s logo (complete with the additional silver wrapping). I opened it and bit into it, after all, it looked like chocolate, it had little square “pieces” and it smelled like a Hershey’s bar. Then I heard my cousin and his wife yell, “Nooo!”. I looked and it was a calculator… it was so cool (but looks can be deceiving).
I want #5. Not fond of the price, though.
I used to think everyone I knew, or didn’t but were in our lives, shared my last name.
I’ve done #1
#7 could be referring to nuggets
I used to pretend (and still do on occasion) that pens were laser guns. Also, would put my hands in the plastic rings that hold six packs of sodas and I would pretend I’d be captured and handcuffed but then my strength would overcome them and I’d be free and super strong.
Booooooo… we all know it’s fiction. But it’s the little details that make us laugh when we notice them (or in this case, when we read about them). We’re not taking this seriously and it’s not ruining the movie for us.
My answer to anything I can’t explain is “It’s science.” But in this case, You’re right!
I love decorating our tree while watching Elf. Only makes sense. Last few years followed by A Very Sunny Christmas (It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia). Christmas movies all month long.
I also like Eight Below & Running Scared.
Elf (when setting up our Christmas tree), The Holiday, Home Alone 1 & 2, Love Actually, Serenditipy, The Family Man and Batman Returns.
I’m thinking #33 may be an issue in the wireless control itself, but it’s still funny. And at least #26 realized what he did. Unfortunately he didn’t delete the original comment.
I remember when La Cucaracha was going to be added to the Chicago Sun-Times and read that it was very funny. Honestly, I really didn’t find much humor. As a Mexican-American growing up in a Spanish speaking household, I’m in between how I feel about this new show. On the one hand, I find Seth McFarlane funny yet crude. On the other, I don’t find Lalo Alcaraz’s comic strips funny yet I’m trying to be optimistic on his run in this new show.
I understand some of the issues I’m reading because I’ve worked in the restaurant biz, but to be honest, a lot are a bit more undestandable, such as #13. But it is funny, for example, I’ve had customers pronounce Quesadillas (“Keh-za-dee-yas”) as “kay-sa-di-lias” or “coo-eh-sa-di-las”. Also, you have to laugh at the customer (or guest) that instead of asking for a 12 ounce steak asked for a 12 inch steak.
