Nole - you are clearly in danger of being cast aside for a younger model. And after all you've done for her over the years.

I see ;)

And the funny thing is...... I threw away my pair of sneakers upon return and one of the reasons is I can't get the sand trapped inside out. The sand is so fine that it gets inside my feet/between my toes even I was wearing a clean pair of socks the next day.

And the stupid and lazy me got a pretty nasty sun burnt on the shoulders and forehead.

So I guess Moab, UT is named after Moab in Jordan. It's a nice little town but I didn't really spend enough time there to draw any conclusion. Of course, I doubt there'll be any little towns that tops Banff, Jasper, Cochrane, etc in Alberta, Canada. :p

The much-discussed Grigor now on court - I shall watch him closely. Quite cute thus far but agree about the socks :bolt:

But he's playing Gillou who we know has some very distracting tendencies on court:devil:

No it hasn't changed much to be honest - even by my own snobby Home Counties standards :o it can grate a little at times. I'm personally still :fiery: at the young lad on the Gate on Monday, who asked me if I was a Member or "just" General Public :rolleyes: He looked down his nose as he said "general public" as though it was some nasty, contagious disease. The fact that I had a Guest Pass and was therefore officially neither, seemed to confuse him dreadfully :rolleyes:

And still laughing at the old guy sitting next to me watching Janko, who was conviced that Janko came from Belgravia and not Belgrade :rolleyes: He said he couldn't possibly come from Belgravia, because he had that beard and those glasses :tape: As I said - sometimes I am embarrassed myself.

It's more used in the French speaking part, I think. In the Flemish part, it's more Steven or Stefan indeed.

Rose made a comment about 'odd names in certain countries' earlier too - was about Jeremy in France. I assume Brits only use Brittish names? :ras: There are so many lovely names from all different origins, why using a name that's been heard for a thousand times in your environment? :p

Traditionally Brits have tended to stick to the "old fashioned" British names yes -things like Rose, Sarah, Anne or whatever. Recently, as we have become far more of a multi-cultural society more "exotic" names are far more common - especially of Asian and Afro-Caribean origin. There are also an awful lot of what I call "made up" names becoming popular nowadays too - things like Chardonay :rolleyes: Tia, Kyra, Jaedene etc for girls, and Kydon, Jayden, and Kayden for boys. I think they're vile:spit: but all a matter of taste I suppose.

Herdwick
06-12-2009, 12:35 PM

Re names, Steven for example could be from anywhere but from my POV I always find UK abbreviated names fairly prosaic - Steve, Bob, Harry to me all sound very British - so I don't expect to find them anywhere but NA and Oz.

Sorry Ellen :hug: Herdwick and I are being very British again and making "in" Brit comments, which I guess could be seen as somewhat of a compliment for the fact that you and the others here speak such good English we kind of forget it is not your native language :o

Earlier on here, I was talking about the new-fangled, made-up names that a lot of kids here are given nowadays and how much I hate them. So Herdwick decided to re-Christen herself with a typical silly, Chav first name, and then combine it with a "Mac" surname in honour of her Scots heritage :D
