I wish I could have a big smile on my face when I was excersizing:awww:

(prob. spelled wrong:lol: )

~*BGT*~
11-10-2008, 04:35 PM
Close ;) Exercising. :p

Brownie
11-10-2008, 04:36 PM
Cute! Actually laughed out loud on that one:lol:

Brownie
11-10-2008, 04:38 PM
Did everyone have nice weekends?

Tess Gray
11-10-2008, 04:38 PM
exercising... Got it :lol:

Tess Gray

My weekend was fun! My brother turned 21. So my mum and dad bought him a suit for his bday. He's an accountant and has to wear suits:lol: Suits are SO expensive:o

And sunday the WHOLE family came. All 9 of them and that includes me, parents and brother:lol:

how was yours?

Brownie
11-10-2008, 04:45 PM
Sounds like a good time! Suits are expensive, I'm happy I'm a girl!

My weekend was good too. I went to my boyfriends brother's last college (american) football game. It was a bummer because they lost to their arch-rivals:p, but it was nice because I got to see one of my college friends:) I also realllllly wanted to play tennis this weekend because it was actually warm enough, but it kept raining:sad:

Lauren, as for passing on technical knowledge, we may be here for some time! :o

Tess Gray
11-10-2008, 04:50 PM
I've never understood American football... it's confusing:lol:

Brownie
11-10-2008, 04:53 PM
Yeah, it is pretty confusing, and I've been watching it my whole life. And I was made to join a fantasy football team this year, and my record is 3-7:o Pretty much when I go to games, I do more socializing/people watching than football watching:lol:

Tess Gray
11-10-2008, 04:58 PM
Never understood the fantasy football thing :o Same with fantasy tennis and fantasy snooker:shrug: Whatever.

Lauren what time is it with you right now? Just to check the time difference... Too lazy to look it up:o

Brownie
11-10-2008, 05:01 PM
I really like fantasy baseball, but football, yuck! Is snooker the same thing as pool?

It's 12:00 here...is it 18:00 there?

Tess Gray
11-10-2008, 05:04 PM
yep! It is:)
Vicki, is it 1 hour less with you or 2? :confused:
Lauren you're close to your first 100 posts:lol:

Brownie
11-10-2008, 05:08 PM
Party on my next post:lol:

I'm going to dinner now;) Backin half an hour. If you are still here by that time! :wavey:

reggie1
11-10-2008, 05:19 PM
It is 5.15 here. We are an hour behind I believe. Do you understand the offside rule in football/soccer Tess? I'm almost falling asleep as I'm typing it, it's a big joke in England, women and the offside rule!

Brownie
11-10-2008, 05:23 PM
Sounds good! I'm just eating lunch now, here:)

Offside rule: if you are on offense you can't go past the farthest back defenseman? It's a joke in England?

Oh my goodness, I just figured out why the UK flag looks like it does! I never realized the English flag was a red cross before:unsure:...wow, you learn something new every day:lol:

Tess Gray
11-10-2008, 05:45 PM
Okay I'm back:)


Yeah I know the offside rule :p Same here, huge joke :lol: But guys make it sound like it's such a complicated rule:lol: 'Never mind, I'll tell you later' Why?! You can explain it in like 2 seconds :confused: Guys...

Brownie
11-10-2008, 06:00 PM
oh guys...they think they're so clever:rolleyes:

reggie1
11-10-2008, 06:01 PM
yeah it's all about two men standing in front and one not being able to go round them, or something like that. That's certainly about as interesting as it gets anyway.

Tess Gray
11-10-2008, 06:01 PM
Offside rule: if you are on offense you can't go past the farthest back defenseman? It's a joke in England?


No the rule in combination to women :lol: Guys say that women never understand the offside rule, because it is 'too complicated' :cuckoo::ras: so they always make jokes about it.

btw when you do the 'stick out his tongue' smilie it says : ras: what does 'ras' mean?

Brownie
11-10-2008, 06:04 PM
I think it stands for raspberry...which is when you stick your tongue out to make a farting noise

Tess Gray
11-10-2008, 06:08 PM
oh really? didn't know that. Never heard of it:lol:

Brownie
11-10-2008, 06:18 PM
Yup, very mature, isn't it? :lol:

Over in the Gilles chat thread they figured out that like half of them are the same astrological symbol. I was wondering if the same thing is going on over here (probably not, but hey, experiments are always fun:))...I'll start off, I'm a Virgo

Tess Gray
11-10-2008, 06:22 PM
Well I was born on the 20th of january. So in one magazine I'm a capricorn and in the other I'm an aquarius. The english names are so different from the dutch ones:lol: I learned the english signs through a Beyoncé song:scratch::shrug:

Brownie
11-10-2008, 06:26 PM
Haha, silly...weird, I guess you get to be both then?

Tess Gray
11-10-2008, 06:29 PM
I'll read my horoscope and decide which one is best :shrug:

Brownie
11-10-2008, 06:33 PM
You could read the traits and see which one you're more like, hehe

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capricorn_(astrology)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aquarius_(astrology)

Tess Gray
11-10-2008, 06:44 PM
Okay, after long consideration. I've come to the conclusion...









That I am neither a capricorn and a aquarius :awww: I've read both, and they just do not match whatsoever to who I am.

Brownie
11-10-2008, 06:56 PM
bummer dude:scratch: Mine pretty much fits me to a T...my mom's always like, "oh, you're such a virgo!"

Tess Gray
11-10-2008, 07:00 PM
what characteristics (is that a word in english:lol:) do virgo's have?

Brownie
11-10-2008, 07:07 PM
Yup that's a word (same in Dutch?). Some characteristics are: analytical, orderly, practical, intelligent, responsible, perfectionist, polite, reserved

Tess Gray
11-10-2008, 07:20 PM
In dutch it's 'karakteristieken' so yeah it's the same;) Well, for me it's literally translated:lol: For you it might be completely unrecognizeable.

btw, I got a 10 in my german test today :woohoo: :D

Brownie
11-10-2008, 07:31 PM
To me it's unrecognizable:lol:. It kind of looks like the name of one of the "stan" countries (I'm probably thinking of Kyrgyzstan). Good job:bounce:! Are all of your tests out of 10 points (we mostly do ours out of 100 points)?

Tess Gray
11-10-2008, 07:36 PM
I can understand why it looks weird to you:lol: But trust me, there are plenty of words you would recognize!

Yeah with us it's always one to ten! You can't get a lower grade than a 1. We always say a 1 for the effort of showing up:lol: I though americans did A's and B's :scratch:?

Brownie
11-10-2008, 07:46 PM
I was watching America's Next Top Model last week, and they were in Amsterdam, and they were having such a hard time getting around on their castings! All the streets had really long names and I guess looked the same:lol:

We have A's B's, or you can go by 100 points, or if you're in college, your semester grades are on a 4 point scale. If I remember correctly, in elementary school we could get O (outstanding), S (satisfactory)...I can't remember what the bad grade was in elementary school...so, a bunch of different scoring systems:rolleyes:

Tess Gray
11-10-2008, 07:52 PM
Yeah I heard they were in Amsterdam! But we're still in the previous cicle here so it will be broadcasted in a few months or so:lol:

We also have G (goed; good), V (voldoende;satisfactory) and O (onvoldoende; horrible) but that's mostly in gymclass:lol:

Brownie
11-10-2008, 07:59 PM
I just read that Rafa pulled out of DC w/ knee tendinitis. Too bad for Spain!

Haha, we took over the chat thread this afternoon:)

Tess Gray
11-10-2008, 08:03 PM
Rafa :awww: Damn it. That damn knee all the time! I was really looking forward on seeing him in DC:( Rafa is my first tennis love:lol: Because of him I really started to get into it 3 years ago. I've always watched tennis, but not as obsessive as I do now:awww:

Poor Rafa :hug:

Brownie
11-10-2008, 08:10 PM
Awww, your first tennis love:lol: Well, I hope he can get better quickly! I think that was shaping up to be a really good DC final too:awww:

For some reason, when I was younger, I thought tennis would be really boring to watch, so I just didn't watch it (even though I really liked playing it). I wish I wasn't so stubborn about not watching it in previous years! I think Richie did for me in the Aussie Open this year what Rafa did for you (make me obsessive, haha):)

Tess Gray
11-10-2008, 08:11 PM
I have a question for my history test tomorrow:

In the US you have the Senat(100 members) and The house of... (435 members)? What's that called in english?

Tess Gray
11-10-2008, 08:12 PM
Yep totally... It was the 2005 RG :inlove: Ah, those were the days:lol:

Brownie
11-10-2008, 08:16 PM
Senate<--with an "e" at the end
and House of Representatives

both of them together is called Congress

Tess Gray
11-10-2008, 08:20 PM
okay. I wasn't sure about the 'e'. I thought the pronounciation would change.

house of representatives. Could have thought of that one. Another direct translation of the dutch word (afgevaardigden; and that one looks nothing like the english word:lol:)

and together is congress. Got it.

And another question: What was the year that america got their constitution? Do you know that or do you have to look that up?:lol: (have no idea if it's something y'all learn at school or not)

Brownie
11-10-2008, 08:26 PM
Being a sciency-type person (not history) I couldn't tell you the exact date (I would've just said shortly after 1776). But I definitely learned that in history class in the past, probable multiple times:shrug:. I looked it up :lol: and the year it was created was 1787.

Tess Gray
11-10-2008, 08:36 PM
aw thank you:D 1787, 2 years before the French Revolution. Wow, it all makes sense now. Everything is connected to eachother... Well I mean I knew that:lol: but suddenly i'm having an 'A-ha moment'.

Tess Gray
11-10-2008, 08:38 PM
I'm so nervous for this test tomorrow:lol: We had to learn so much, and all different sucjects. But I think I know everything now. Hopefully.

So what are you going to do for the rest of the day?

Brownie
11-10-2008, 08:44 PM
No problem:) Good luck with the test!! Tests with dates aren't particularly fun, huh?

I'm finishing up a homework set, then I'm suppose to go to a study group, go home, grab some dinner, go to a meeting, watch dancing with the stars, and go to sleep eventually:lol: How about you?

Tess Gray
11-10-2008, 08:50 PM
Supposed to go to a study group?:p Dancing with the stars is fun! Anybody participating who I might know? Nine out of ten times I don't know these american 'celebrities' :lol:

Well it's almost ten here. Got an early day tomorrow and a long day at that:lol: So probably going to bed at 10.30pm. And tomorrow: school, 3 tests, guitar lesson and work on my georgraphy project and than on my computer to chill:awww:


EDIT: Blegh, it's raining here. As always :ras:

Brownie
11-10-2008, 08:57 PM
Yeah, I am, and I should probably go to that now, hehe. Ewwww, 3 tests:p Guitar, that's cool, how long have you been playing that?

Hmmmm, dancing with the stars "celebs"...there's a guy name Cody and I think he's in Hannah Montana (is that popular over there, it's like the number 1 show for kids here). Lance from NSync:lol: Toni Braxton was on it, she got kicked off, so did Misty May-Treanor (the volley ball player). Know any of them?

Have a good night, good luck on your tests!!:)

Yuck, it's raining off and on here too:ras:

Tess Gray
11-10-2008, 09:05 PM
Yeah, we know Hannah Montana:p It's dubbed over here... It makes it even more awful :lol: I kinda like her music though :angel: I know Lance and Toni Braxton as well. Not the vollyball player.

Been playing guitar for about one and a half year now, not too long:lol:

Have fun at your studygroup:lol: And with DwtS! And I will (probably) talk to you tomorrow:)

:hug: Ciao!

Haha, nope, it is a division III school (aka football doesn't really matter, haha)...Colby, a small liberal arts college:) Wow, that's quite the upset, bummer:awww: What do you study at LSU?

Oh right, unsatisfactory! Fortunately I didn't get too many of those:)

Can any of the Frenchies tell me who is thought of as the sexiest tennis player in France? I was watching Jo's match and Gilles Simon was in the audience and they camera panned in really close to his face and he is so pretty close up. I'd always thought he had a lovely face but up close and personal he is gorgeous!

They're all sexy reggie ;) though some are sexier than others. :p I'd say Clement and Llodra are the sexiest. Arnaud is just absolutely gorgeous and Mika has that great personality... like the sterotypical charming Frenchman. :inlove:

Personally, and I don't know why, I find Julien Benneteau irresistable. Just so sexy. :hearts: He's actually the only player who I actually liked more after he beat Andy, usually it's the complete 180. :lol:

reggie1
11-11-2008, 09:10 PM
Benneteau is really gorgeous. Clement is very good looking in my opinion, not sure about the tennis clothes though! He looks like a reject from Fame, ask your mum and dad Danielle if you are too young to remeber it. :lol:

tennis lover
11-12-2008, 02:08 PM
Danielle - one other thing I remembered about Wimbledon tickets :o - after about 4pm-ish a lot of the corporate people leave and they re-sell their tickets for Centre/Court 1/COurt 2 for £5 for charity so if you particularly want to watch on of the later matches on one of the show courts but you only have a ground pass you can queue for a resale ticket later. The queues usually move fairly quickly once the tickets start coming in so it's not too bad (unless you're queueing for a Murray match but I don't think there's much chance of that! ;) :p ) I've done this several times and have seen some great matches. :dance:

~*BGT*~
11-12-2008, 02:45 PM
You don't need to worry about me ever going to a Murray match... the same thing for a Fed or Sharapova match. :rolleyes:

yeah julien benneteau is good looking even if I find paul henri mathieu more attractive.
But yeah jo tsonga and gilles simon have their charme, richard is cute especially when he smile.:)
But to answer you the most sexy tennis player must be yannick noah,he still has some nice body,look at thishttp://tennis-buzz.com/wp-content/noah_sloggi2.jpg
sexy no?:D

All I remember of Noah was some sort of Exho where he was playing himself and kept jumping over the net:lol:

I am good:D Just heard that everything after third period tomorrow... (hmm, what's the word in english) Well anyway, after the 3rd period there are no more lessons:D :woohoo:

how are y'all?

Brownie
11-12-2008, 06:55 PM
Yup, period's the word:)Very exciting!

I'm sleepy and want to leave my office, but what's new:yawn:

Tess Gray
11-12-2008, 06:59 PM
What kind of work are you doing? I thought you were a fulltime student?

Brownie
11-12-2008, 07:02 PM
I take 2 classes (which is considered fulltime for my graduate program) and then do research in the lab and work on my thesis project in my office for the rest of the time. So I get paid to be a student and do research:)

Tess Gray
11-12-2008, 07:05 PM
oh really? That's cool. Seems like the perfect thing when you really like your programme!

I just quit my job actually. About a week ago.:o Was boring. :lol:

Brownie
11-12-2008, 07:07 PM
Yup it's pretty good! I'm getting a little bored of reading scientific articles though (I much prefer tennis articles:lol:). What was your job?

Tess Gray
11-12-2008, 07:12 PM
Uhm, well I've had several jobs:lol: My last one was in a callcenter. :o You had to call 'outbound' which means that you basically have to call people and tell them about the company you work for. I don't know what that's like in the US, but here people like that have a HORRIBLE reputation. You constantly get cursed at and yelled at:lol: In the beginning I thought: whatever, it makes good money. Because you get paid A LOT for my age. But in the end I just couldn't take it anymore:awww: I would always feel down coming from work, so I decided to call it a day and leave!

Brownie
11-12-2008, 07:16 PM
Yuck!! :p Yeah, they are called telemarketers over here, and it is a pain when they call! We have a callcenter like that in my town, and a bunch of people I went to high school with had jobs there and they hated it! I can see why you quit. Is it normal for you guys to have jobs during the school year in high school?

Tess Gray
11-12-2008, 07:21 PM
Yeah pretty much! Basically from the time you are 15 you can get a job and most of us get one! Because we have to ride our bikes to EVERYWHERE (:ras:) most of us buy a scooter (?) when they are 16, that's the legal age for a scooter. Besides that, our age for legal drinking is 16, so you can go out when you turn sixteen.

All of that combined, you need money for your scooter, gas, license and for going out:lol: So you work:)

Brownie
11-12-2008, 07:27 PM
Awww, I wish scooters were popular over here...it would make life so much cheaper! Especially in Maine, there are a lot of big trucks and stuff on the road, so I guess scooters wouldn't be too safe. I pretty much just had summer jobs because after school I was pretty busy w/ sport teams and stuff in the afternoons.

Tess Gray
11-12-2008, 07:34 PM
Well, I don't know if you have ever been to Holland (I doubt it, but who knows:lol:). You have paths for bikes everywhere.:lol: There are more bikers than cars most of the time:p And the scooters can ride on those bikepaths so there are plenty of those.

We have a exchange programme in our school (in which I am participating this year :banana: ) and last year the frenchies who came to our school, totally laughed at us because we are going to school on a bike, including most of the teachers. When you are in school and look out of the window, you see about 3000 bikes:lol: Pretty funny sight!

Brownie
11-12-2008, 07:37 PM
Nope, never been to Holland! Do you live in a pretty densely populated area? Are you going to France for your exchange program?

Tess Gray
11-12-2008, 07:37 PM
Didn't you feel like you were coming short on money? :scratch:?

Tess Gray
11-12-2008, 07:41 PM
*googles densely* Ah Okay. Well, Holland is not like in the US where you have big and important cities all over the country. We have one area in holland (called Randstad) and that is the economical and cultural center. We're like one HUGE city:lol:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Randstad

Don't expect you to read it completely, but I don't know exactly how to explain it! And that might help;) My city is called 'Zoetermeer'.

Brownie
11-12-2008, 07:50 PM
No, I don't think so. I didn't have a car in high school, so that didn't eat up a bunch of money. Also, the drinking age is 21 here, so it's not like you can go out like in Holland (just to the movies and stuff like that).

Oh ok, so I'm going to say yes, pretty densely populated:) In Maine everything is really spread out (the population is only a little over a million people, and we are like 80% the size of Holland) and we really don't have many bike paths so it'd be quite hard to get around everywhere on bike...which is unfortunate

Tess Gray
11-12-2008, 07:56 PM
Yeah, it is densely populated. I can imagine that riding a bike there is not as comfortable as it is here:lol: But for example, Amsterdam, has some extremely narrow streets where only 1 car can pass at a time. So a bike is so much more convenient. Where as in Maine, there are no narrow streets from the Middle ages:lol:

Brownie
11-12-2008, 07:59 PM
haha, very true:lol:

Tess Gray
11-12-2008, 08:08 PM
No I am not going to France. People from the UK, France, Germany, Italy and some other countries are coming to my school because we have a thing called MUNA (Model United Nations Alfrink (= my schools name:) )) And we are going to pretend we are the UN and speak english and do whatever. It's kinda fun!

Brownie
11-12-2008, 08:13 PM
Sounds like fun! I did something like that in high school. A few people from each school across the state (not nearly as cool as across Europe:lol:) were chosen and we spent a week at a university and formed a state government (elected the Governor, Senate, House of Reps, and also positions on the local level). I think I ended up being in the House.

Ooooo, the Lakers:ras: Can't cheer for them, go Celtics!;)

Are you going to the game?

No... which is a shame since I live an hour from New Orleans. :ras:

I like the Lakers because Sasha is cute. :p He's from Slovenia

I'm not sure if they would be famous over there, but the new "big three" on the team are Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen.

Paul Pierce has been on the Celtics since he started in the NBA and had never won a championship. Last season they brought in KG and Allen, and won their first championship since 1986 (and the season before their record was 24-58:eek:)...biggest turnaround in NBA history i think...it was awwwesome!

11-13-2008, 05:09 PM
Yes they won. :banana: At one point they were up 20 points but then Kobe left and Sasha came in and Sasha let the other team score enough so that the Lakers only led by 3 with 2 minutes to go. :o But they pulled Sasha out and replaced him with Kobe who scored a 3 point shot and led the Lakers to the win. :)

They're actually coming back on December 23, but my brother can't get off work and he doesn't want the cheap seats so I can see my Slovenian man. :o Maybe next year. :awww:

So there's a visiting student in my department, and a professor was introducing him yesterday and said he was from France. Well, I hear France, get all excited, think oooOOOOOOOOooo, I should ask him if he likes Gasquet and Simon:yippee:!!! How exciting, a french person in real life to ask about french players!

And then I thought:scratch:, hmmmmmm, maybe not the best idea, he'll probably think I'm an absolute nut:rolleyes:. So I just said, hi, nice to meet you.

Or he could have said: tennis? I LOVE tennis:inlove: and you could have had conversations for hours and hours about it. Who knows :shrug:

I had a similar experience when I was a junior in high school. I went to our annual French Convention and there were representatives from all the different francophone countries. So, my group went to the France delegation and I thought, "Oh, he's from France, maybe he knows some French tennis players." So I asked him if he knew Paul-Henri Mathieu, Sebastien Grosjean, Richard Gasquet.... and he was like, "uhhhhh..." and started talking to someone else. :rolls:

I have a nice story to tell :angel:

So, there's this guy :angel: who I came to know of last July (as in July 2007, not 2008). His name is David. I just thought he was really cute, nice, and funny. He's also friends with a good friend of mine and when I first saw him, he walked up to her and spoke. I was literally jamming my elbow in her ribs trying to get her to introduce us but to no avail. :o So, I'd keep seeing him around and make eye contact (flirst with my eyes :p ) but never really spoke.

So I said to myself, "This isn't going to happen on accident... I have to be proactive to talk to this guy." So I saw him last night at church. And I felt horrible because I wasn't wearing any makeup, I had glasses on instead of contacts, my hair was dirty and stuck in a pony tail, my shirt was wrinkled -- I looked busted... that's a new English term for you Tess. :lol: Me, my mom and aunt always sit on the second row. Behind us was a family (husband, wife, daughter and soon to be son in law) and David is really close with them so he sits with them during services.

Well, he walked up and wasn't sure if that family was sitting there so I said, "Are you looking for where the Germonds sit?" And he's like "Yeah, do you know where I'm supposed to sit?" And I'm like, "No, I don't know where YOU'RE supposed to sit. :rolls: "

So I'm thinking to myself, "Do I introduce myself by saying, 'Hi, I've seen you around. My name is Danielle.' ?" I wasn't sure what to do. So after he put his things down, he went to the back of the room, to speak to that family. As services are about to start, they come back to their seats and David sits RIGHT behind me... I'm like NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! :sobbing:

So after it's over, the wife of the family and another woman who is sitting next to me and I are talking and David just joins in and we're all talking. Then the wife of the family introduces us and I'm like :speakles: now. He asked how old I am and I say I'm 19 and he says "Me too".. I'm thinking, "I know, I know alot about you already :rolls: "

The wife and the other woman leaves and DaviD and I talk for a while alone. :inlove: We talk about school and friends, and life and cooking. I tell him I don't know how to cook because my mom was a chef and she does all the cooking and he says he needs a woman who knows how to cooka nd who already has a house so he can just move in. and I say only 30 year old desperate woman are like that and if I fins one, I'll let you know. Then he says "If I find a man who can cook, I'll send him your way." :lol: So we're just joking and talking about the wedding of the couple (whom I can't stand :o ) but who David is really close to. I wasn't going to it, but I will go now since David is a groomsman.. and I'm going to the bridal shower Sunday too. :rolls:

That's my little rant.... hope you guys hear more from David in the future. :p http://www.planetsmilies.com/smilies/love/love0014.gif

11-14-2008, 10:09 PM
yeah you're absolutly right vicky.The big love can enter in one' life at the most unexpected moment ,when you're not prepared for that at all.This was the case of my cousin, she had a bad experience with a guy and was what I can say a wild wild girl, men didnt interest her at that time so no wearing effort or esthetic one.She even get out with oil for hair on her,you know the oil care to make hair grow.She was ugly and that's not a joke, she was serious I know her well lol
so she was in a commercial centre ,she was in the lacoste shop and that where she met the one with whom she got married few months later.

She told me that she still doesnt know,even today, what made him fall in love with her.
I think men like beauties but prefer authentic girl,natural one who is able to have a conversation and something interesting to say. Give arguments and opinion, things that beauties dont have always lol

Yeah I had SOOO much fun! It was really nice. The DJ that was there that night was playing really good music, not like the last time I was there :ras:

But unfortunately I had to go home at 2.30 already because my friend wanted to go home. And i was like: "who are you riding home with?" "no one" And I wasn't gonna let her go home by herself because it's like a 20 minute ride so I decided to go with her:) And then one other girl wanted to drive with us as well, and she was a little tipsy so she blurted out the most funny things :rolls:

But we all got home safe and I had an awesome time:D!

I completely agree Lisa,sometimes very good looking people don't have much personality because they don't feel that they have to ty, they just let their looks do the talking! I saw Zac Effron from high school musical on the t.v the other day and I thought that he was a typical example of a really good looking man with no personality or sense of humour. The woman who was interviewing him, is a real laugh and most men usually enjoy being interviewed by her but she didn't manage to get a rapport going with him at all. Maybe he was shy but I thought he was really dull. I'd take a man who can make me laugh any day and someone who you can really talk too. When I met my husband I had a really bad frizzy perm,acne spots and dodgy glasses so god only knows what he saw in me but 15 years on and two kids later and we are still together.
Shame about Gilles match today, he really fought hard, he is now my second favourite player. Do you know Lisa, if it's easy to get tickets for Roland Garros, I am going to go next year? hopefully! Does anybody know if Richard wil play in the championship thing on new years day? I've only just caught the end of what they were saying about it on sky xx

Haha, he kind of expects it now (but makes fun of me everytime I want to watch tennis). I just took a 2 hour nap after the match, so I'm not quite so tired anymore.

I love hockey! It's so much fun in person:) I thought is was kind of popular in some European countries (maybe eastern?).

I met him the summer before we went to college. There were these chat things online for our freshman class, and he had a question about a class we were both going to take so I answered it for him. We chatted a bunch during the summer we met up once the before we got to college, and the rest is history:)

Congrats Vicky for your kids and husband, that's really show how union can work simply and naturaly.Happy for you because I know its not easy to make a marriage last and be succesful.:);)
And about Zac Efron, I think exactly the same as you, I think he looks quite "superficial" without real personality but its also perhaps because he's young and doest want to "grow up":shrug:
yeah shame for gilles today, he could have won this match but djokovic was just better in "key points" imo.Its a good experience for him.
As for roland garros tickets, its not complicate.The tickets for "grand public" will start in first day of March 2009, you chan chose between getting paper tickets or e-ticket, here the link for english speakers,its more simple I think to understandhttp://www.fft.fr/rolandgarros/default_en.asp?ifr=http://www.fft.fr/cms-fft/billetterie_en/?id=3383

It was made by a fan and he is gorgeous in it, the smile! I like JRM too, wouldn't kick him out of bed for eating biscuits and leaving crumbs!! I also liked Callum Blue aswell but think he got killed off. Everytime I watch Tudors,I think, please don't kill off Brandon. Think I'd stop watching then. Henry was going to play Edward Cullen in Twilight and then somebody else got the part I think. I think he should be the next James bond.

That's Johnathan Rhys Myers and yes, he's British. He's dressed up there as a young Henry 8th so he is meant to look all menacing, Tess. Amira, try to find Henry Cavill as he's definitely worth a look and Lauren, I LOVE Matt Damon, the first time I ever saw him was in Saving Private Ryan and I thought he was definitely worth saving!:o
Danielle, what is ACC? I'll vote but I haven't the faintest idea what I'm voting for, like your average British voter come election time!:lol:

RFK
11-16-2008, 02:06 PM
Henry Cavill, Matt Damon, Orlando Bloom and Richard Gasquet!

Tess, you cannot vote the ACC yet. I will let you all know when voting starts.

reggie1: ACC, stands for Arse Clown Contest. A yearly post-season contest when posters choose, the silliest, funniest, dumbest, most retarded, most loved, most hated, annoying poster of MTF.... I haven't usually done well on this contest. :ras: But that's changing since I was put in a ACC banner my l_mac... I'm shocked!! I don't even consider myself a member of DuckNation or a DuckTard.. I'm in the Gasquetairs forum all the time. :confused:

Thanks so much Lauren. Is it just me or does anybody else think that Richard looks a bit like Robbie Williams?

TV5 is a channel for french speakers, they use to broadcast program of french television channels. Plus belle la vie is a daily program of 25 mn but I dont like it.It has some success in France but really cant watch that lol:p
TV5 is a good channel, even TV5 Monde(World) broadcat also for canadian french speakers, from Quebec and I cant understand it at all even if they speak french lol

I found that french channel the other day and tried watching some of it. Suprisingly, I did actually understand some! I think that might just have been because it was a game show and the question came up on the screen...It's so hard to just listen to french and try to understand it.

What exactly is the difference between Canadian-french and French french?

first of all: the accent. Its completely different from french speakers from france.Well its normal to have a different accent based on the country you live.
Belgium, Swiss,Luxemburg, they have also an accent.
The fact is even if France you have different accent depends on what region you live.
but omg the canadian accent is unique.Im from Paris and I can say that I dont have accent.But from canadian point of view I have one lol!:D

then I would say the difference with the canadian french speakers is that they use many language expressions, words that we dont understand in french french speakers.
Its funny cause they dont understand us when we speak french and the same for us.Sometimes I try to imitate canadian accent, especially celine dion, she's so "unique" lol
but you know when they learn french, they learn on classic french books,french litterature.Its quite strange because all the canadian singers who sing in french dont have any accent!Music is universal:angel:

Hello girls, I must have got that wrong Amira about Richard commentating. I did use google translate afterall!! It's the funniest thing because it just seems to give the very literal translation. For example, if the french uses il/elle for he/she, google translate will call that person "it", like "it lost a match".
I sat a test today, I've gone back to college as a mature student and had to sit a literacy test, but our test was at 6.30p.m. As we all said, not the best time to sit a test! We've all got children, so were picking our kids up from after school clubs and forcing dinner down them. I was really stressed about the test and my youngest asked for a yoghurt after tea and I was like "No, we've got to get in the car and just get to Nanny's!! I passed my test though, thankfully.
As for accents, I find that unless English people speak like the Queen or Liz Hurley, most American's will mistake us for Australian! Most English people are not posh, I certainly am not. I only eat cucumber sandwiches with the crusts cut off on Sundays and save my bowler hat for special occasions!:lol:

Hi Jo, I am from Essex in the South East of England, about 30 minutes from London by train and Tess, I don't really look like Vicky Pollard. No, more like Bubbles Devere (Hello Daaaaarligss!!) :devil: I love Little Britain, the best character is Marjorie Doors in my opinion, the slimming club teacher who adrresses her club with "welcome fatties!" I think she's hilarious.
And Lauren, I am an absolute teapot. I drink it constantly. I know it's a stereotype but I think most british people are. I don't always have finger sandwiches and fairy cakes though. That's just when the queen visits. She's a bit of a pest actually, always turning up when I least expect her. So inconvenient! :o
I love love love seafood. Shrimps or prawns as we call them over here are my favourite. I would like to eat Lobster because I'm sure I would love it but in restaurants over here, you tend to pick one out of the tank and then sit there eating your starter while you know it's being boiled alive by the chef and it kind of puts me off!
Chips and mayonnaise is another one of my favourites. Well, I've got to put in some calories to maintain my Bubbles Deveresque figure. If anyone doesn't know who she is, look her up on youtube. It's so funny.
Amira, do you like Bouillabase? don't think I've spelt it right, but we have an English chef called Rick Stein and he spends a lot of time in France and has tried to learn how to cook it, it looks so nice.
Tess, I'll p.m you about my kids, bit dubious about putting stuff about them on internet.

well in fact its a very specific plate cooked in specific regions or in restaurants.
I like very much sea food but never tasted bouillabesse.
And to answer you brownie, I find ketchup very nice taste, better than mayonnaise when its about eating french fries so thanks the americans for that.
In fact I'm open to every kind of food except when its about eating insects. THIS IS really disgusting imo.:o

I love tea. I have a hard time making green tea though. It seems like if you let it steep for too long it will end up tasting disgusting. Have you ever tried Darjeeling? I had it in my college dining hall and loved it, but I can barely ever find it in the supermarket:shrug:

Amira, those snails in the picture? Where do they come from, are they the same sort of snails you get in the garden or a special breed? I know over here, we have snail farms as lots of English people like them now. Forgive my ignorance but I really haven't got a clue.

well vicky you look very knowing about culinar food. Yes, in fact the snails you saw in the picture are specific snails.This is french speciality, its called "escargots à la bourguignonne", its a regional food, from bordeaux in south of france.You can buy it in supermarkets but its a speciality from the "bourguignon region".
But you know snails can be cooked in different ways.I have morroccan roots and in morrocco they eat also snails, the same snails you can find in your garden I think.And its good too;)

I never saw "les escargots" on the menu when I was in Bordeaux. :awww: I might have tried them if I had! :lol:

omg :lol: hum... well next time if you go in a french restaurant or even buy it on supermarket, dont forget to search for "escargots à la bourguignonne" or "escargots de bourgogne"

in fact I was completely mistaken about the origin of these snails, sorry i'm confused lol!!!!(I have some morrocan roots lol):lol:
I thought it was from bordeaux:o:o:o
its easy to prepare really.But you have to chose snails from bourgogne, its a place in france where you can find those big snails.I think you can find it in great britain no?

lol I was so confused about my mistake, no really I felt like a dumb lol.
I dont know about this region in France so I 've made some search and learnt that this region is much of history and culture.
Good region to visit in France with many castles,good wine and above all the famous escargots de bourgogne!:lol:
well now when I'll hear about this or eat les escargots de bourgogne Ill laugh
I just realized that I'm french but I dont know that well others regions in my country.:sad:
I just vizualized where the bourgogne is on the maphttp://www.brain-village.com/Images/bourgogne.gif

Amira, there's no such thing as 'coincidence' it's all destined to be :inlove: :lol:

Yeah that community is huge in Holland and unfortunately they are in the news a lot in a very negative way:( But personally, I have no problems with "them" at all. I have a few friends who are moroccan or from moroccan descent:)

I'm doing pretty well...how are you?:hug: The lab I work in just got a big endowment to help pay for upkeep over the years, which is pretty cool...we just had a naming dedication for it this afternoon:)

I don't know about Morocco, but I do know that I like this Moroccan dish w/ couscous, raisins, veggies, beef (maybe lamb), and spices:drool:...can't remember what it's called though.
