From what I've seen of your French, you should be past the necessary linguistic 'point of no return' - meaning that even if you concentrated on Spanish now, you wouldn't lose your French any more.

That's also important in the context that before switching from one Romanesque language to the other, you need a level of proficiency to not mess them all up - and in consequence learn none of them properly.

In this line - bonne chance - mucha suerte - buona fortuna! *

* ironically one of the few that diverge strongly in the 3 major Romanesque languages.....

I suspect this is true for all languages, having once tried to learn Mandarin at the time I was studying Hebrew. The results, such as they were, were not pretty. :(

Unless the proper Spanish differs from the Mexicanized version I've learned, buena suerte would be the more common usage for good luck although I could see some dialects choosing much luck or mucha suerte as equally interchangeable.

The 70s are my least favourite decade. Everything about it just grosses me out. I've been seeing one too many of those double-bridged glasses lately. I hope to God they're not making a comeback.

And, for a Christmassy one: I always enjoy the leftover cold-meat-on-a-bun way more than the proper Christmas meal.

I had this pair of light brown plaid pants that I used to love as a kid in the 70s. So, yeah I hope they don't come back either.

The toys were higher quality though compared to today.

I had a good time as a kid living in the 70s, but I'm with you in not wishing anything from the decade to come back. Welll, maybe The Muppet Show, but not any of the styles.

It doesn't take much to be one of the best TV shows ever made. Television only exists to sell you what you don't need and don't want. This is especially true in an election year,

C'mon, there has to be more ideas for Hollywood to make!
