Shadowplay (The Killers cover) and For Reasons Unknown (The Killers) always get me going. I had the pleasure of seeing them live in Buenos Aires last month and couldn't stop jumping!!!

Hey Risa... I used to be a fb addict as well. Like all trends, it tends to wash out in time. How long have you been an addict? I added a couple of people from this forum to 'meet' them cause I wonder how many of you look like. Feel free to add me, I go by Valen Gomez Fletcher

The expression is 'Estar meando afuera del tarro'. Its English literal translation is 'To be pissing out of the jar'

How about "Duh!
That's what I was gonna write. The expressions TL Hobs proposes are more like a 'Duh', but that's not quite the meaning in Spanish.
It would be a combination of:
You are way off
You are out of it
You are missing the point
It's a tough one...

Hey guys! Long time no write...
I'm writing cause I'm in the search for a slangier version 'you're missing the point'
We have an expression for that in Spanish, and would like to find a close one in English
Thanks, and in case I don't write later, happy new year, y'all!!!

Usage Note: The compound preposition off of is generally regarded as informal and is best avoided in formal speech and writing: He stepped off (not off of) the platform. Off is informal as well when used to indicate a source: formal style requires I borrowed it from (not off) my brother.

Errors in novels

I tend to read books in the language they were written (English, Portuguese and Spanish are the only languages which allow me to do this). However, since I'm getting my degree in translation, I sometimes read the original book and the translated one. You can't imagine how many mistakes and misinterpretations you can find! It sucks!
