I had a whole month of fun. But last night was a tough penalty for it. I had to say goodbye.
Anyway, here is my England 2007.
Now I know all the dirty words in Italian (with a perfect pronunciation!), Portuguese, Spanish, French, Swedish and Hungarian. I can also say "I love you" in 17 languages ;))
The most common words of my English vocabulary were: "Oh, my Gooood!" and Fornication Under Consent of the King, of course (due to the buses that were always late!).
Sometimes English shop-signs amazed me. I bet there's nothing funny in them for english people, but for me they sound ridiculous:
PET-PET-PET! pet superstore
White Stuff (clothes... not white at all!)
Frame of mind. picture framing (maybe a tad too posh)
The final cut. (hairdressing saloon)
The Young Peoples Hall (no idea what it could be).
Cake Mistakes (written on a box. And I must say... the cake was a real mistake!)
I also have a small collection of English "jokes"... For example, a magnet for a fridge with a pin-up girl on it: "We two can't look good at the same time. It's either me, either house!"
Or a t-shirt: "If you think I'm a bitch, you should see my mother!"
Or the words written on a bus: "If only buses ran every 5 minutes, ran all night long" (it's my dream as well...)
Or in a pub: "If you are lucky enough to look under 21 you will be asked to prove that you are over 18".
And here is a joke from my fantastic teacher: "My grandfather died peacefully. In his sleep. So did the passengers of his bus". English humour.
I enjoyed practising bad language with him ;) During the break he always fucked off downstairs to have a cup of coffee.
I love English people. And England. Even though there is a shit weather. (not always!!!)
sooo cute. Mini Cooper.
ready to play snooker ;) (me, my host father and a sweet boy)
That's Mikey-boy & girls. He's such a legend! Our conversation the other day:
Mikey: Whe will u go?
His favourite word was "Wawawiwa!". (especially when he saw a gorgeous woman passing by).
Once he told me he knew one Russian word. I asked:
- Which one?
- Well, it's not the worst one in the world... but it's not really the best one...
- Which word?
And then he found out that he knew some more: прывэт and бабУшка. But for some reason he used the first one more often.
Che cazzo stai facendo?! Italian guys. No comments.
my little brother. He's really funny.
The Royal Pavilion. Absolutely stunning.
Look at this funny thing in my hand. It's my guide ;)
