When people have been bothered to help him E. "Oh no, someone's down! Gotta get there quick, get the ice. Oh, it's just Dave again, he knows how this goes," I am so mean

Davodus

yes you are right lauren!
although if she just smashed it and its not broken or sprained, compression is not necessary because it will only make it hurt more :p
but elevation is good because then blood rushes away and your body doesnt release the stupid liquid from the blood that goes to a spot where there is pain and settles in, that results in swelling

Nope:sad: Nobody is home... And a buss is not an option. I hate the fact that I'm home alone right now!! Nobody is here to feel sorry for me:sad: Well except you guys (minus Dave:ras: Thanks hun, I really felt your compassion there)

Hello Vicky, how are you? :)I'm fine thank you Maria, I've got a bit of spare time this afternoon as my eldest is at football training and my youngest has gone to a friend's for tea.

I'm watching some of Richard's match against Ferrer and I didn't realise it at the time (I was stressed watching him) but Richard really swore a lot through it and the commentators had to keep apologising as you could hear it really clearly.:lol: I think some people think of him as this prudish :angel: and he clearly is not :devil:

Some time without the children, you love them I know, but I'm sure at times it's nice to have a moment alone to relax.

Our Richie isn't so innocent!

Tess Gray
03-10-2009, 04:19 PM
True, you did tell me about the ice:lol:

BTW, If you want to use the 'godver teringzooi' then you have to pronounce it correctly, which probably is going to be really difficult for you cause of the dutch 'g' :lol:

reggie1
03-10-2009, 04:19 PM
I did join Facebook for a bit but never posted any details about myself. I never had any friend requests and never sent any either, so it was a bit pointless really :o I think it's more of a young person's thing. My god, that makes me sound really ancient :lol:
MSN sounds like it's quite good though, Tess was telling me about it.

someone in amsterdam tried to teach me that actually!
i failed, ended up sounding like a fish..if thats possible!

Masha91
03-10-2009, 04:21 PM
Does the Dutch "g" have an English equivalent or something that sounds like it or is it just hard to pronounce?

Brownie
03-10-2009, 04:21 PM
What does the dutch g sound like?

Oh Tess, I meant to tell you I listened to an audio interview of Jesse Huta Galung (have i got it right this time?) and his English is really good, put Richard's to shame actually and he sounded really intelligent. I was impressed.

I may be generalising but Dutch people on the whole usually do speak English very well, I think the Dutch and the German are two of the best, from my experiences and what I've heard.

Brownie

My mom does too...she found all her old high school friends on it and talks to them all the time!

Maybe because they are all germanic languages rather than romantic languages :scratch:

Davodus

she does :angel:
i call her old lady all the time, and she calls me stupid fuck :lol:
but its all in fun

Yeah, could be. Although there are a lot of French words in our language. English is a big mix, really!

I thought as much, my French teacher in high school always emphasised to us that the French would prefer you speak their language when you are in their country.

Hi guys... back from my guitar lesson:wavey:

It started raining like crazy while I was riding to my lesson :(

Eimear O'Mahony
03-10-2009, 05:46 PM
Hey Tess :wavey: How did your guitar lesson go? That sucks it started raining. Its quite nice over here. I hope you didn't get too wet?

Tess Gray
03-10-2009, 05:53 PM
My guitar lesson went great! No actually I did get really wet, soaked actually:lol: Gotta love the dutch weather:p

Did you have a nice walk with your dog?

Eimear O'Mahony
03-10-2009, 05:57 PM
Aw you poor thing. First your toe and now you get wet :hug: Still, look on the bright side, you got off classes early! Yeah I had a really nice walk. We drove out to the beach and then went for a walk on the beach. Its really warm out actually. I posted some pics of my dog on Facebook if you weren't here when I posted them for Maria here one day ages ago

Tess Gray
03-10-2009, 06:01 PM
Well if I hadn't gotten off early, I also wiouldn't have bumped my toe... :p It was all meant to be I guess...

Yeah I already saw that on FB:) It's cute... But tbh, I'm not really a animal person, so you can't talk to me for hours about your dog:lol: Sorry bout that...

Tess Gray
03-10-2009, 06:04 PM
:drool: God he's so sexy & funny:lol: (Colin that is, not Jonathan:p)

Eimear O'Mahony
03-10-2009, 06:04 PM
Oh that's okay :lol: He's more of my Mam's dog than mine. I'm not a huge animal lover myself so I don't talk for hours on end about them! :lol: So ... here's today's topic of conversation :lol: Do you know of any tennis players who smoke? Totally random I know but it gives us something to discuss :lol: And yes, fate can either work for you or against you I agree! In your case it worked against you so :hug: for you

Eimear O'Mahony

I know David Ferrer smokes every now and then... and there was another player but I forgot who that was. You know any?

Tess Gray
03-10-2009, 06:15 PM
Off for dinner, back in a bit!

Eimear O'Mahony
03-10-2009, 06:24 PM
Sorry hun, just had a bite to eat myself and didn't get a chance to say goodbye. Talk to you when you get back from dinner :) I'll do some research on tennis players who smoke :lol: I have a feeling Gilles does because his teeth sometimes look like they've got cigarette stains on them

Eimear O'Mahony
03-10-2009, 06:25 PM
Oh I LOVE Colin Farrell. His accent is INCREDIBLY sexy

Eimear O'Mahony
03-10-2009, 06:29 PM
Apparently Nadal likes a smoke ... can't say I'm all that shocked because any Spanish people I ever met all smoked like god knows what!!! Tim Henman also smokes which shocked me I must say!

Eimear O'Mahony

Tess Gray

Back! Golovin smokes?!:speakles: Had no clue...

Eimear O'Mahony
03-10-2009, 06:46 PM
Apparently so judging by those pics :shrug: I can't find any other info on tennis players who smoke. I'm sure there are a few who do just like in any other walk of life you have the smokers and the non-smokers

Tess Gray
03-10-2009, 06:48 PM
I know David Ferrer smokes, but I dont think there are pics available.:shrug:

Eimear O'Mahony
03-10-2009, 06:49 PM
Most Spanish people smoke so I'm not entirely shocked. I'm sure all the Spanish players smoke. How do you know Ferrer smokes? Have you seen him?

Tess Gray
03-10-2009, 06:50 PM
Anna kournikova is a smoker, she started smoking when she was on the tennis tour and I believe still smokes today.

It's in the comments below the Tati pics... I didn't know she smoked.

Eimear O'Mahony
03-10-2009, 06:52 PM
I'm not surprised by Anna to be honest ... I think it is a shame if professional sports people smoke ... I mean they do their best to be fit and healthy on court and they ruin it by smoking. It wouldn't surprise me at ALL if Gilles smoked. Santoro does apparently. I doubt Richard does and I'd be shocked if Jo did. Of the musketeers I'd reckon on Gilles and Gael to be the smokers

Tess Gray
03-10-2009, 06:52 PM
No he actually admitted it himself... In an interview that was posted on GM a year ago or something.

Eimear O'Mahony
03-10-2009, 06:54 PM
Who admitted smoking sorry? Ah ... I believe you're referring to the David Ferrer comment

Tess Gray
03-10-2009, 06:54 PM
No I dont think Gael smokes... He's said he's never done drugs, never drinks alcohol so I'd be surprised if he did smoke.

Tess Gray
03-10-2009, 06:55 PM
Who admitted smoking sorry?

Ferrer ;) You asked me how I knew. He admitted it himself.

Eimear O'Mahony
03-10-2009, 06:59 PM
Yup I corrected myself when I realised it was Ferrer's smoking you were reffering to. You could be right about Gael but I'd be surprised if Gilles didn't just going by his teeth. Andy Murray doesn't. He said he's totally against drinking and smoking

Tess Gray
03-10-2009, 07:05 PM
Really? Good for Andy! I wouldn't know about Gilles actually... Never really paid attention to his teeth in that way:lol:

You smoke as well, no?

Eimear O'Mahony
03-10-2009, 07:06 PM
I'll just post the pic I was thinking of when it came to his teeth ... Well not so much anymore but yeah I did smoke. You don't right?

Eimear O'Mahony
03-10-2009, 07:09 PM
Here's the pic I was thinking about 'cause you can see his teeth clearly in this one and it looks like there is some cigarette stain ... I could be wrong and I hope I am ... I can't have a boyfriend who smokes now can I? :lol: Even if all bar one of my ex-boyfriends smoke

Tess Gray
03-10-2009, 07:15 PM
Ooh wow he really does have cigarette teeth! TBH, I think I like his "I'm frustrated/angry/incredibly sexy"-look better than his "huge smile"-look for some reason.

Tess Gray
03-10-2009, 07:16 PM
When'd you quit? Only a few days ago? Because I think a few days back you were saying something like, brb a quick smoke. No I don't smoke, my parent said they'd pay my drivers license if I didn't smoke till I was 18:)

Eimear O'Mahony
03-10-2009, 07:17 PM
Yeah he does and if you bring the pic to full size its even more obvious. My poor Gillou smokes :sad: You're right though he does look better when he's not doing the 'big smile' pose. Its a nice photo of him but I've seen better. I just posted that to get someone elses opinion on whether his teeth look smoke stained

Eimear O'Mahony
03-10-2009, 07:20 PM
Its actually a running joke between me and Dave that started a week or so ago. He said he'd send Gilles my way if I quit smoking and I have to say I've only smoked one or two since then! I did smoke a bit more while my parents were away because it was easier to smoke in the house so that was probably when I said that to you

Tess Gray
03-10-2009, 07:27 PM
Ah okay! Well I think you're doing a good job then! It's a good motivation to stop smoking huh;):lol:

But yeah, he does have smokers teeth... although I still find it weird how pro athletes can smoke...

Eimear O'Mahony
03-10-2009, 07:29 PM
Yeah I'm so sad ... I know it'll never happen but the thought of it was motivation enough to get me to practically give up smoking :lol: Yeah it is incredibly weird. My brother says he's always slagging John O'Shea for smoking. He's always like 'How can you play for Manchester United and have a 20-a-day habit???

Alright hun no hassles. Have fun with your homework hun :hug: I'm just reading through a link Fran sent me about a discussion on players smoking on these threads. I thought she might know if any of the Musketeers smoke but she isn't sure. Talk to you later :hug:

Just catching up. I still maintain I'm the forum klutz. Chopping off the end of my finger and setting fire to my own hair at least deserves an honourable mention surely.

You are making me want to smoke, stop it. I haven't had one in ages.

I am really freaked out I have this electric anti allergy thing http://www.lloydspharmacy.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?catalogId=1008&storeId=90&productId=5383&langId=-1&parent_category_rn=18354&top=&top_category=18352&fromPage=&hotspot_prefix=ELECTRICALS

I have really bad allergies and my friend bought this last year and says it works so I got one. Just used it for the first time and it is the freakiest thing ever it lights your nose up red. Very very weird.

Am getting very worried about Gillou's sexuality with that pic Eimear

I've been worried about his sexuality since he told Gael he loved him and wanted to caress his butt :haha: Is this contraption supposed to stop your allergies or something Tori??? Yup I think you come a close second to Dave in the klutz stakes although I think I take third prize for getting my leg caught in a chair when I was 5 and having to be sawed out of it :haha:

I used to be really skinny and I used to squeeze between the railings at the bank by the cashpoint and once I got stuck and it took 3 people to free me (this wasn't recently btw I was about 8) :devil: they were debating calling the firebrigade but luckily it wasn't quite that embarrassing.

yes to the question about the allergies uses two wavelengths one is meant to increase blood flow and circulation and the other is meant to suppress the cells that release histamine and reduce inflammation. I hope it works I have to take antihistamines all year round now and it gives me nosebleeds.

Would be worth looking stupid for.

I wonder if we can get someone to photoshop that pic so its Gael instead of Marc :haha: That would be absolutely BRILLIANT!!!

Hallo Everybody! How have your Tuesdays been?

Elmear - that Simon picture must give you all kinds of thoughts!!!???

Eimear O'Mahony

Hi Mia :wavey: Oh Lord you've only talked to me one day and already you know all about my dirty mind :lol: Oh yes that picture gave me a HOST of thoughts ... all of them bad :haha: How are you??? My day hasn't been too bad actually. Got in a nice walk on the beach, set up a face book account and hung out here!

:Zaz:
03-11-2009, 12:42 AM
Hey there :wavey:

I doubt you are alone, many a sane woman wouldn't not have 'impure' thoughts when faced with such a..... display. :lol:

Ooo, a walk on the beach, sounds nice. I had a lazy day, nothing doing. Just a day with the fam

Eimear O'Mahony
03-11-2009, 12:44 AM
'display' being the operative word :lol: Yeah me and my dog went for a walk in a beach 15 min drive from my house. It was lovely. Sounds like your day didn't go too bad yourself!

:Zaz:
03-11-2009, 12:47 AM
Ah, what kind of dog do you have? I miss being a dog owner. Although I have my first doggie client on Friday - I've set up a dog walking business. So its a substitute.

Eimear O'Mahony
03-11-2009, 12:53 AM
He's a yorkshire terrier. He's really cute. A dog walking business sounds really good! You'll have great fun doing that

:Zaz:
03-11-2009, 12:57 AM
Ah grand, a Yorkie. They're so cute. What's his name? What do you do with yourself workwise, if you don't mind me asking?

Eimear O'Mahony
03-11-2009, 01:00 AM
His name is Brandy ... you can tell he's an Irish dog can't you :haha: I blame my Mam 'cause she named him!!! I work in a supermarket on the checkouts. I have a degree and a masters in marketing but with the recession marketing jobs are hard to come by so I just went full time on the job I was doing through college. Its better than nothing :shrug: I'm out of work at the moment though. Had an op on my knee in October and its still not right so I'm still out with it which is a pain in the arse but I'm getting on with things :)

:Zaz:
03-11-2009, 01:07 AM
Oh, sorry to hear about your knee. That's a long time in recovery, I hope everything is alright. I'm very impressed with your education, and its an arse you cannae utilise your knowledge because of the current financial climate. You're not alone, but that is little comfort I know. :(

Me mam has a rule about dog names, she says how would ya feel yelling that on the beach, or in the park, or at three in the morning in the middle of the street - if you feel like an arse, then it ain't the right name. But I think Brandy would pass those criteria fine. Gonna call the next one Whisky?

Eimear O'Mahony
03-11-2009, 01:14 AM
Actually it is a little comfort to know that I'm not the only one in my class struggling to find a job. I think if I was I'd feel even worse :lol: Ah I'm kind of used to it now ... it gets me down sometimes but on the whole I'm just taking it in my stride and following the physio and doctor's advice! I tend not to shout his proper name 'cause I don't want people thinking I'm an alcoholic :lol: I tend to call him Branders or yell 'Here boy' :lol: I like your Mum's criteria though. She's dead right methinks!

:Zaz:
03-11-2009, 01:28 AM
Yeah, life can be an arse at times, but it makes the good times better that way. Cheerfulness not tearfulness my granny used to say.

Hahahah :lol: yeah, yelling Brandy in the street at 3am, might be misconstrued. Hehe

Eimear O'Mahony
03-11-2009, 01:32 AM
Your granny talks a lot of sense. Yup, it might be misconstrued big time :lol: Wouldn't want to give anyone the wrong impression of me now would we? :lol:

03-11-2009, 01:41 AM
or fall into Irish stereotypes. ;)

Eimear O'Mahony
03-11-2009, 01:43 AM
True, very true :lol: Stereotypes can be a dangerous thing! The only thing that's Irish about me is my accent. I don't have the drink problem, the red hair or the freckles :lol:

:Zaz:
03-11-2009, 01:47 AM
I don't fit those Irish ones - I am dark and teetotal. I don't fall in the scouse stereotype either - pinching wheels and all. I cannae even drive.

Eimear O'Mahony
03-11-2009, 01:52 AM
:lol: And I find it so annoying sometimes that people just automatically assume you're going to fit in with the stereotype

:Zaz:
03-11-2009, 02:03 AM
oh yeah totally, it really grates my cheese as well. But as long as they aren't overly offensive I let it pass. But Paddy's day really grinds my gears, everyone becomes a plastic paddy for the day. ARGH! :mad:

Eimear O'Mahony
03-11-2009, 02:07 AM
I know! Everyone pretends to be Irish and its like a walking festival of Irish stereotypes :lol: Anyhow I'm going to head to me bed now. It was good talking to you again and no doubt we'll be talking again soon. Goodnight!!! :wavey:

:wavey: I saw somebody requested a Photoshop job of Gilles et La Monf and couldn't resist having a small go! I had to combine a total of 3 pictures of Gael to get the right idea I had in mind (but I couldn't find a suitable one with feet of Gael to get a better effect, sorry!). Hope you lot like it! :angel:

The 2nd attachment is just to show you something I made in the past for another board member, which I think is quite funny (although slightly off topic). No prizes for guessing who they're a fan of ;) (and you could probably guess the member too :lol:).

I would do anything to delay uni work, it seems.... still this was a nice distraction to put La Monf and Gilles together in this way! ;)

and both my legs just slipped right out from under me, and i was down
slammed onto my INJURED back on the wet road :o
it didn't hurt too bad, it was more funny than painful

Eimear O'Mahony

That sounds a little silly to me. You're old enough to go to uni yet you're not old enough to participate in research or use the library ... no offence but that seems a little silly and I don't fully understand it.

Driving is hard! I've had eleven lessons and I still drift to the right side of the road.

Poor you Maria. Hopefully you'll come up with something before your birthday. Dave ... at least you're not polluting the air with the noise of the horn :lol: Yup slow drivers usually get a death glare from me and a finger as I whizz past them

I still have a slight tendency to do that but not as much as I used to. It is something you grow out of the more you drive. It's definitely an instinct when you first start driving to veer to the right

Yeah because my birthday isn't till November! I get dirty looks because sometimes I drive at like 40 km and I'm like "look at my darn L plates, they're clearly displayed on the front and back!"

That's good to know, you used to do it, because all my other learning friends stick to the left, no problems at all.

I always used to go over the speed limit even when I was a learner. My Dad used to kill me :lol: He called me a 'boy racer' I'm not TOO bad now though. I go either on the speed limit or just slightly over it. Never go under it unless I'm in traffic or something like that

I think it is something to do with the parked cars that Dave mentioned. My instinct anyway was to stay as far away from them as possible so I drove mainly to the right. That does get better though as you gain more experience and your judgement of distance etc gets better

Oh, we're the opposites, I'm always driving under the speed limit, once I drove at 20 km in a 60 k zone, thank gosh there weren't very many drivers out there to get angry!

Yes, sometimes the people on my street do it and their garages are empty, so annoying!

im the same now eimear :p its speed limit or slightly above, but NEVER under

Eimear O'Mahony
03-11-2009, 12:01 PM
I don't know what it is but I just don't feel comfortable going under the speed limit unless I have to. 20ks in a 60k zone? Hey, that's okay. You're still only a learner. You just need to get a little confidence to push that accelerator and go for it a bit more. That will come

Well, it was just the one time. It was only my second time or so and it was at 1 a.m.

well that's perfectly understandable then although, as dave said, WHY were you out driving at that time of night? :lol:

Yes, my mother.

my sister always goes to the entertainment centre during weekdays, apparently is just always a massive empty carpark good for practice
but late at night is a good idea

Masha91
03-11-2009, 12:10 PM
My mother was the one to suggest that I go practice late since I don't sleep at night and tend to drive on the right hand side of the road.

you have a great mother then Maria. You're lucky. If I asked my parents to go driving with me at 1am I'd be swiftly told where to go :lol: we have this industrial estate that my Dad used to teach me how to drive. It has everything, left turns, right turns, roundabouts, stop signs, three point turns, hill starts and parking so it was ideal and there were hardly any cars there 'cause we went in the evening when all the factories were shut for the day

She is wonderful, both my parents would do anything for me. I don't even have to ask them for anything. That would have been so handy while you were learning!

It's nice to have parents like that. In fairness, my parents are great too they really are. My Dad once flew over to France just to give me a hearing aid battery because I thought my hearing aid was broken and it turns out it was just the battery :lol: He flew over and flew straight back. He's great! I think they'd draw the line at bringing me driving at 1am though :lol: Yeah it was handy. I was terrified going out into the road in traffic for the 1st time ... I'll never forget it!

You have amazing parents, flying to another country!

I have been on the main road plenty of times when there's been some traffic, but I haven't done peak hour yet. I still have some steering difficulties.

Oh I am the world's worst when it comes to traffic I really am. I tend to sit shouting to myself in the car :lol: I get so impatient and the traffic ALWAYS seems to be worse or I hit EVERY red light going when I'm in a hurry to go somewhere!

Aw thanks Maria. That's really nice of you :hug: God I'm impressed with you guys, Dave going to his boring lecture and Maria sacrificing hanging out with friends to go to a tute. I must confess I wasn't the best when it came to attending lectures. I always skipped at least once a week at some stage during the week
