I've actually considered moving somewhere warmer like Australia or northern Africa. I don't know
Australia! We rock down here, and yeah, this is the driest state on teh driest continent on earth, so maybe the east coast would suit you better. My sister in law came from Canada and she says its a 'different kind of cold' in the winter....she gets cold on days we consider warm!
Huh, you'd think she would feel hotter than the natives since she came from a colder climate.
EDIT: Are you going to go watch the Australian Open?
No, not into Tennis. Sorry.
Off to the Mall to collect my teenage daughter.
(Actually, it's afternoon but I haven't learned that one yet)
Yes, Morgan Freeman is a God.
Did you ever catch/hear of the classic British TV show "Monty Python's Flying Circus", Becca? It span off into a number of films later.
I remember a skit that they did -- two people conversing with the aid of a phase-book (neither spoke a word of each other's language); only all the phrases in the book (in both languages) turned out to be insults!
Morning! Speaking of the Australian Open, sports guys on the radio were trying to speak in Australian accents and they kept repeating the phrase "shrimp on the Barbie". It was bad, I was cringing.
Hah yes, I love monty python. That's one of the reasons I'm distrustful of people teaching me phrases in other languages, they usually end up being insults
Shrimp on the barbie, that works on so many levels
1. No one in Australia puts a shrimp on the Barbie
2. We don't call them Shrimps, they are prawns
3. We don't all sound like Steve Irwin.
It's early morning here...
Don't worry, not all Americans think that. Most, however, cannot distinguish Australian and British accents (at least in CT ).
Yeah, there are a few differences. But I have to admit I met a guy in Hawaii who I thought was an Aussie, but was told he was British! OMG!! So I even fell for that one!
I suppose I should have realized. The same day in the same hour I was asked first if I was Australian and then by a different person if I was British.
Gah, I slept very little last night. Blah.
So you don't attempt to barbeque shrimp on a Barbie doll
Prawns or pawn? Or maybe Thrawns
Good mornin', Lovelies. How is everyone this morning?
Hey, Bossman FeatherHead. How goes it?
It goes good Knee is beginning to heal but it'll take a while. It is getting easier by the day to walk on it and the fluid pocket is almost gone now.
How are you today?
Same here. Walking okay without the brace, but still wearing it at work, just in case I have to run to a call or something. Hitting up an Ed Sheeran concert tonight with my wife and my work wife. He's gonna come over after work and we're just gonna ride together to the show.
