I thought I was one of them and overdid it at a New Year's Eve party. I'm glad the party was at my BFF's home, and she let me crash (OK, ordered me to) in the spare bedroom. And I woke up with a crashing hangover.

I don't know how you could pick this one up. Or leave it, for that matter. Well, LB could probably leave it. I'll bet good money he couldn't pick it up.

Mano a mano is hand to hand combat. Except these days, usage seems to add knives, firearms, pitchforks .. .

What drives me crazy is all the people that say "mano y mano". Hand and hand doesn't have same connotation.

Sort of like "cajones" which means drawers, like a chest of drawers, not a part of the male anatomy which is koh-hoe-nayz.
