It's close, but brilla is present simple, not present continuous, in this context, so the translation is shines, while I would translate espejea as glistens, although shimmer is probably possible too.

I thought I'd make a few little updates.  Some things in the first post were no longer true.

Better sleeping habits? What's that? I've never heard of such a thing. :P

6'2"? Really? Awesome.

  • Are you into sports?  If so which ones?
    I like watching Formula 1 and listening to crickets.
I fixed that for you. :P

I do happen to like Buddy Holly and the Crickets, however, I don't think that's what you're referring to :D :P.  Also, you need to be introduced to the wonder of cricket :P.

Nope, unless they're wannabe insects. :D

Is that any better than snooker? :P

Nope :D.  Also, they go back a bit too far in history to be wannabes  :laugh:.

Position: Doc Writer Doc Coordinator

  • Do you have pets?
    Nope, I'm allergic to anything with fur, so I can't join the SMF cat lovers club, and crocodiles aren't allowed as pets apparently.
  • What is your favourite colour?
    I can't choose just one.  Red, purple, yellow, and orange are all favourites.
  • What kind of music do you like?
    A very mixed bag.  Pop music of all sorts of types, as well as classical.  I can be listening to a 'cello piece at one moment, and then switch to Roxette.  Eclectic probably sums it up :D.
  • What do you do in your free time besides spending time on SMF?
    I moderate other forums.  I'm also now working on trying to publish part of my PhD thesis.
  • What are your goals/dreams in life?
    To finish my PhD, never do any research ever again, and become a full time university language tutor.  Two achieved, one still to go :).  A bit of a re-think here, as to get into the university system I'm going to have to publish something.  To make my dream a reality, it's time to jump through some more hoops.
  • What got you involved in SMF?
    I had previously managed a phpBB forum, been a regular user on a Vbulletin forum, and then signed up to a number of fora which used SMF.  I found SMF to be my favourite type of forum software, did some hunting around to find out more information, and ended up here.
  • Who do you admire? Why?
    The Spanish teachers at school, and Spanish university lecturers who taught me on my undergraduate degree.  They were inspirational in shaping who I am today.  I also admire my parents for always being there.
  • Are you into sports?  If so which ones?
    I like watching Formula 1 and listening to cricket.
  • What is your dream job?
    Spanish language tutor. University tutor of either politics or Spanish, or maybe even both.
  • What was your first screenname?
    Irisado.
  • Do you have any piercings?
    No.
  • Are you a lefty/righty or ambidextrous?
    Mostly right handed, but my left hand can do a few things, such as removing screw on lids, better than my right.
  • Do you have any tattoos?  If not do you wish/plan to get one?
    No and no.
  • Do you have any siblings?  If so, how many of each?
    No.
  • What is your favourite website?
    40K Online and this one.
  • Do you play computer games?  If so, which ones?
    Not many.  Skyrim and the Fallout series are the only ones I play.
  • Do you play video game consoles?  Which ones?
    No.
  • Are you married or planing to get married?
    No.
  • If so do you have any kids?
    N/A
  • How many kids?
    N/A
  • How many languages do you speak?  If so which ones?
    Three if English counts ;).  Apart from English, Spanish, and some rather rusty Italian.
  • Do you drink?
    No.
  • Do you smoke?
    No.
  • Did you play hookey from class?
    Never.
  • Do you have a license?
    Assuming this means a driving license, yes.
  • Do you own a car?
    No.
  • Have you ever been stopped for speeding?
    No.
  • Do you obtain a good amount of sleep daily?
    I used to, but not any more.  I'm starting to get back into better sleeping habits.
  • How do you sleep?
    Badly.  Much better these days :).
  • Have you ever been on an aeroplane?
    Yes, and I've got more frightened every time I've done so.  This is no longer the case.  I was much better on my last plane trip.
  • Have you ever broken a bone?
    Yes, my collar bone.
  • Do you wear jewellery?  If so what jewellery do you wear?
    No.
  • How do you dress?
    Informally.
  • How many keys are on your keyring?
    Eight.  Down to five now.
  • What time do you go to bed?  What time do you wake up?
    Varies, although I am starting to go to bed earlier and get up earlier on a gradual basis.
  • What's the freakiest thing you have done?
    Tumbling out of control down a ski slope was pretty freaky.  I never want to experience that again.
  • Do you live alone?
    Yes.
  • How many hours a day do you spend in front of the computer?
    Lots of them, but not as many as before.
  • How many hours a day do you spend in SMF?
    Not too many.  Four or five perhaps.  It's on the rise though.  I tend to lose count some days, but it definitely rose to quite a few until recently.
  • What is your favourite beverage - coffee, tea, soda, beer, other?
    Water.
  • What do you hate?
    The obsession with the commercialisation of higher education and universities.  People who take decisions based on fear, ignorance, prejudice, and/or xenophobia, rather than based on acceptance, hope, inclusiveness, and the facts.
  • What do you love?
    Coastal walks in watery sunshine and walks in the park.
  • What is your religion?
    None.
  • What is your hair colour?
    Light brown.

    About 6'2"

    No idea.
  • What's the feature on SMF you can't live without?
    • As an administrator?
      Moderation tools of all types.
    • As an end user?
      The reply button  :D.

Thanks for reading.  If you have additional questions, I may answer them ;).
When are you guys going to add
"What is your blood type?"
?
I'm here because my forum is the only part of my site I am not proud of. I am here to fix that. Take a look if you have time to give me some advice and if you do, do so here.
