Do you have hunger?

Heya everybody!!! Que onda? Which, by the way, I have always have thought was a really weird phrase in Spanish. It means literally "what wave" but its used as a greeting, similar to the way "whats up" is used in English. However, it will confuse you to no ends if you learn it as being like "how are you" first then go to the beach and try to learn what the word for wave is; especially if your just starting to learn Spanish. I've made so many mistakes working at Spanish, but one of the worst has to be confusing hombre(man) with hambre(hunger)... in spanish to say your hungry you say "tengo hambre"(I have hunger) so its really easy to say "tengo hombre" (I have man). Usually the answer that you get to that is "O do you? Wow can I meet him? Jaja well the thing is there are things like that in English too. Have any of yall thought about the phrase "Keep your eyes peeled"? As my good friend Jade pointed out for me one time in reality that phrase is terrifying. Hit the sack? how is that go to bed? I know that there is a story behind it but imagine someone who is learning English how strange that would sound.
So I didn't mean to write about that today, but I've got to get going. So thanks again to everyone who is reading, writing comments, talking to me about this blog, if you have talked to me recently and similar topics come up in the blog thanks for the inspiration! Bueno quisiera escribir mas pero ya tengo irme!!!
