ROFLMAO!!!!  There is nothing like the British vocabulary!  DH is struggling to understand me at the moment as my northern accent is back with a vengance.  When I first got there, my best friend's husband sat with me for 10 minutes and said, "Denni, you know you really shouldn't spend so much time around all these Americans!"  I was confusing him with some expressions and words!  Still, they kept coming out with 'chav' which is a new one on me........

oh my....i have always thought that us Americans are lacking in our cuss word vocabulary.  and then there are all of those British expressions that i love trying to translate, lol, my favorite part of the latest Austin powers movie is when he and his dad are speaking to each other in "British" and they translate it on the the bottom of the screen in captions....fabulous!
always saving up for my next piece!

LOL!  A certain person we all know and love called me one night a bit frustrated about something and he let a small cuss word slip before quickly apologizing and saying, "I know you don't do that sort of thing" at which point I burst out laughing and told him I could out cuss him any day and he'd need to look up a few of the words...... ;D 

As for translating, let's not even get into the Geordie or Glaswegian accent.  My husband actually thought Geordie was another language.  No kidding.

Dang... I nearly thought you had her DJM!   ;) ........I would have cracked at the offering of the first  "clarified carbon".     

DJ you and Jen are speaking in "tongues" to me.   YOu must give us definitions of some of the Brit language.   ROLF!


Sanchica....  I cracked up at that movie!!

Clueless here on all the Brit curses, lol.  Sounds quite creative though - which I am certainly a fan of :-).

I have my own creative Southern-flavored curses...
WHAT in the GAHL-DURN HAYELL DEW YA'LL THAHNK YEWOR SAYIN'?  Cri-min-ENTly, eny sorry fewl kin tayell yall'r jus' ding dang krayze about each udder, so cut tha-et bull-arkey ay-yut...  'er  'um   or something like that.
 I am originally from North Carolina and have a decent number of Texan years thrown in too, but I think my polite Southern lady sensibilities dominate...that's about all I can come up with right now...lame, huh. 

That's part of why I love that list of female translations so much LOL. 

DJM, watch out, or DJ is going to give you a "Whatever"...(see #8 above!)

Isn't anyone going to feel sorry for lil' ol' me?  Huh annie?
You heard her..she was drinking while I've been slaving. Doesn't that count for anything around here?

I gave her all my support thinking she was working hard at finding another location for the next SDI and how does she repay me? Drinking alone from that hidden stash--that's how!! I didn't even know there was a hidden stash!!!

When we were in the Judges tent--I always made sure that she got enough rum to drink...did I ever complain about that? NOOOOO! That's the thanks I get. Now, all I do is ask one little favor... ::)

Three pages in before I FIND this thread. My God you could have been spamming and posting links to naked ladies and I'd have been none the wiser.

DJ - chav is well worth googling. Britain's new ruling class, apparently. I have a lovely little guidebook somewhere. If I can find it, I'll send it on! For a preview of chav bling, have a look at the fugly thread.

WM, I knew you'd find your way here. I've been waiting for you.
Can't you make DJ do it?
Please?
I've never asked you for anything. (Okay-- maybe to start the Members Gallery, change a few mispelled thread titles and make up the CDI Wish List--but that's it!) I'll be good from now on...PROMISE!

 :DJ:

Now that you've slept on it I am sure you have come to your senses...right?

Just think how much fun we'll have.  Remember all the torture we put the survivors thru--huh? Remember? Wasn't that a blast? How 'bout the time when we changed the rules midgame and you advised me to find the closest bomb shelter and not to open any suspicious looking mail. Wasn't that hilaruious?  Huh? Or the time we thought of different ways to torment Gemelli? Won't you miss those times?

Come on DJ--you know you want to do it--you're just playing hard to get.

 ;)

Well that's because I've discovered that playing hard to get is the fastest way into my husband's wallet......

You are insane, man!  Certifiably bonkers, barking, loopy, barmy, radged, loony and deranged - all at once!  And apart from anything else, it seems I come with my very own posse that are armed with rolling pins, hammers and the odd violin.  That would be your cue to leg it..... :Exit-Stage-Right:

Besides, I'm still making monthly payments on the bill for the bomb sniffer dog I had to employ for a while there.  I was sure I'd get hate mail.

Sometimes, you need a good fight to remind you that you are alive. As for Gemelli, where is he?
