Cool...I could spend my life in bed while hoards of monkeys went around and did the things I was supposed to do..... Go to work..... Take out the rubbish......Visit relatives.......Procreate...

No... scrub the last one.... I'll do that myself :p

6 Plan next years Holiday


So, does Holiday mean Vacation in
Europe? I've always wondered that, but have never
asked. If it does, I'm going to start using it. It
sounds cool. Same with chips. From now on,
I would like chips with that. Not French
Fries, you fool. European words are so cool...

When I was an intern, there was a british guy that
worked at the company I was at. I don't think he
liked me. He was one snooty programmer...

Not to mention:
truck = lorry
TV = telly
elevator = lift
dentist = huh? (HA! British stereotype! I knew I'd get it!)
weather = rain (I did it again! Yes! Of course, this could go for Seattle, too)

Sorry, my view of the British is largely based on Austin Powers and won't be dissuaded until a British member of the board comes to Michigan to visit and get sloshed with me (because I need to reinforce the stereotype of a lazy American)

Relax, Fordy - I'm just joking! :p

You used another Brit-ism in your post, too... "Git" isn't very popular in the States :)

Same in Australia, except chips are fries, as well as crisps. This may sound confusing, but you would rarley ever buy them both at the same time.

Have you ever seen a real-life Dingo?

mithrandir

Yeah I've seen a few Dingoes. I haven't actually had any physical contact with one, mostly because they can kill you or injure your pretty badly. To them people == food. Of course there are some dingoes in captivity who have been trained and are okay, but most of them are just wild animals.

I guess they would be comparable to coyotes or foxes (different but the same concept is there).
