not sure how broad this one is... but when I got here someone called their living room "the lounge".... I was wondering if I would be getting a cocktail : )

Original Post by gi-jane:

I like that!

BTW... I find 'bathroom' and 'restroom' rather sweetly coy US expressions.  "I'm going to the restroom" sounds like someone's heading for a nice lie down and spot of aromatherapy.... rather than taking a dump.



As an american transport now living in England.... funny you mention this... I can't seem to get used to people calling yes the bathroom/restroom/ladies room the TOILET... just sounds so dirty to me! HAHAHA

Loo is cute I can dig it... but toilet yuck!

The last few weeks they reran the old tv movie North & South in all it's cheesiness.. LOVED it.. reminded me of my childhood watching it with my Mom when it first aired.... My son watched it with me this time... also loved him in the Outsiders.... RIP.

I could have sworn I saw Donnie outside the Dominion theatre in London 2 days ago..... he was standing beside one of those bicycle trolley thingies trying to get people to take a ride.... seriously it could have been his identical twin.. I pointed him out and my friend spit out his drink... anyway yeah...

The Lounge I drove my car through the garage door. how is your day going Feb 23 2009

So this reminds me of one of my finer moments....

true story..... 2 weeks after getting my licence...

I had just left a friends house and pulled into a drive way to turn around... WELL at the same time I reached for my sunglasses and they fell to the floor.... getting all confused ( haha), instead of putting it into reverse and backing out.... I uhmmm still in "drive" drove into the corner of the garage and it crumbled on top of my car :)

Yeah.... so of course out comes a 6'5 man in his underwear screaming.... who I soon find out is a cop....  I have never freaked out so bad in my life... hyperventilating... crying the kind of cry where you have snot running all over your face, wasn't pretty. The cop ended up feeling sorry for me and hugging me.... saying it's going to be alright. People were driving by taking phone pics.... The poor guys cruiser and wife's car was trapped in the garage for three days....

It reminded me of some youtube video about bad women drivers....
