    • Get this - in the college indoor competitive swimming pool, projected onto a screen set up for that purpose, lights off, and viewers were floating in the pool as they watched...
      my oldest who is now very almost 28 got to see jaws at the baby sitters when she was 9. she thought it was just a funny rubber shark and subsequently used to swim up behind me and grab my leg. or randomly yell "shark".

      G I havent done much paid work today and i have spent way way too much money and then, i have had the power company 'bot ring me 3 times from an unlisted number to threaten to disconnect me for not paying my powerbill! pass me the shark!!!!

      • Seaweed - No power...?! Uh oh! Then I will let you get to it! Thanks doc, for the journal space, and until then! Next time, you are welcome to sit a spell at my journal-place.

        • i dont think they will disconnect me before tomorrow. i just find it very irritating as if you dont pay last months bill this freaking robot starts calling you from an unlisted number multiple times a day. i will ring them tomorrow and credit card it. and i may change power companies again as this really is the first time i have had one behave like this.

          • Seas - that is awful. Do you remember the story about the lady in Auckland ??? they disconnected her power and she dies, cos she needed oxygen or dialysis or something. It was just awful.................. anyhoo I am really good at lighting a fire - so I could come down with my wee trailer load of wood, a couple of sheep and we could take it from there !!!!!!

            • I take it that means something different in America

              I took (Yanks) best friend and Mr best friend home to the Iggles to stay with my (English) parents. On the long train journey from the Northern mill town to the Isle, we were discussing parental displays of affection. I explained that my parents do not display affection (Brits, long married etc the most you might get out of them is to refer to each other as 'mate')...

              Best friend was talking about Mr Best Friend's parents (it was a busy train and we'd availed ourselves of a picnic that included cans of Boddingtons - a year in the UK and they returned home much more alcohol soaked than they arrived), best friend's voice CARRIED...

              "Yeah, Mr BF's dad sometimes paddles BF's mom's fanny."

              I *know* US fanny = arse. But, PADDLE? Water, dipping, oars? WTF! (Surely, everyone knows for Brits, fanny = ladyparts, right?)

              The carriage went silent.

              I tried to explain to BF just how rude a 'paddled fanny' sounded to British ears. I failed, as became evident later.

              Shortly thereafter, BF spilt some Boddies on her trousers.

              Goddamn it! I've soiled my pants!

              The entire carriage turned to stare...

              That night, at the dinner table, BF told my - sheltered, respectable - parents about the fanny conversation by way of an icebreaker. My mother's response? Through pursed lips (probably top and bottom): 'I take it that means something different in America.'

              My dad was off the leash for the rest of the visit. Indeed, I don't think he's ever stopped getting pleasure from the night a beautiful young lady said 'fanny' at the dinner table.
              I like badgers, books and booze, more or less in that order.

                • Badger - that is hillarious........................ somethings get so lost in the cultural language barrier telling - however some things are the best entertainment.
                  Littlest DD is in America for the year and we warned her about asking for a RUBBER !!!!!!! In NZ that is the equivalent to an eraser !!!!!

                      In some places, she'd get a pair of rubber shoes..... in most places, a latex item would be in store....

                      • My Geordie (from Newcastle) uni housemate did Camp America. Imagine the children's horror when she asked if any of them had a rubber she could BORROW.

                            My primary school reception teacher, Miss Downer (no, really), would tell you that's it's only borrowing if you give it back. She was also a STICKLER for maintaining the difference between 'can' and 'may'. God bless her.
