I think english profanity should only be OK if it's uttered by some oxbridge educated comedian or other TV personality.. And that's not me.!

Bollocks and Toss respectively,

Well, here is the problem.
We now have enough british TV to understand way more then we use to. (We had no idea what a Mac was and why the banker would want to wear one back in the 60's)

But we don't hear the curses. So Bollocks and Toss make no sense. Well Bollocks might be butt cheeks? Balls?
No clue about Toss.

//sigh
Rusty barks at all sorts of stuff. Like old ladies walking with a baby carriage.

He didn't notice when the house behind us one yard over was gutted to the studs and the entire 2nd floor was removed.
He didn't notice when they rebuilt it.
Less than 30 feet from the back of the yard.


Now there are workers sledgehammering the driveway next door.
They are stealing a cement driveway right outside the window.

Nothing.
He isn't even watching from the window.
He is asleep on the floor.

But if the driveway neighbor's kid comes home from college, Rusty will go nuts.

Are you really that interested in English people that could make a sailor blush? or is it simply something about the accent?

Chuff is dirty,

chuffed is not

well chuffed is just asking for trouble.

edit: that really has to be one of the worst translation lists it has been my displeasure to see.

example...

**** - when curled off the edge of the tongue in British English, it doesn't share quite the same horror it does when used in the United States. it's very commonly heard and used.

not to mention the lack of knowledge about the majority of the words, rhyming slang is mentioned, but examples of it are met with a complete lack of knowledge?

curious.

Hiding in my mom's basement today :P

Got in free to the science center because I knew it was pi day and I could say pi out to 10 digits (after that they bumped it to 50 so I was lucky - I can't get that far without a cheat sheet).

One more day hanging with the parents, going to go visit friend's mom who is in the hospital.

Still need to do Ver1's science experiment, I'm such a slacker!

Had dinner with dougall and then quilted while he packed for camping this weekend (boyscout thing).

Yay! I managed to get most of the lines straight!

And with that I'm retreating to the other rooms of the house and maybe going to bed. Good night, or not.

If you come back, I have a question. If something calls for olive oil, can I sub canola oil, or does it depend on what it's for?

Depends on what it is for. For dressings, I would not substitute, since the oil is a major flavor component. For frying, probably fine to swap, just watch the temperature.
