OMG I say it so much people get mad at me. Sorry for the chair that lept into my path.. or sorry for the object that hit someone else lol

:bravo:

 

Fair dinkum Kelli, you ARE Canadian of British descent!  I'm sorry, but when were you born??  I'm kind of making a connection of Justin Trudeau's mother having a history of partying with the Rolling Stones in New York....ah, ha!!

Tracy those Local Sayings are more Pom than Aussie and I don't agree with quite a few of them

in Aus. Scoff is a verb not a noun and means eat fast (nothing to do with quantity) Nippers are Kids/children not Mossies, Never heard of Maggoty used in this way either

LOL LOL LOL LOL  I'm sorry, Tracy and Heather.  I got as far as "wanna come to our *beep*-up", and I'm laughing so hard that I have a stomach ache.  I have to chill out some and get some sleep before I read any more.  Does this bring back memories of our maggot infested chocolate talks?  :rflol:

Hey, I'd try saying "g'day mate" in a southern accent, but only after I've heard you both saying it with a french accent.....:lol:

Linnie we spent Christmas in Quebec city. 

I tried very hard to say common things:

Bonjour 

Merci

Parlay vou englay

Chocola chaud

 

I know that's not all spelt correctly, but I really enjoyed my french efforts!

 

They were all said with my lovely broad Aussie accent!

I would have loved hearing your French Australian accent!!   It would probably be similar to my Australian French accent......huh??  LOL

 

C'est vraiment géniale que tu as essayé de parler français; je suis impressionée! (It's really great that you tried to speak French, I'm impressed!)  :bravo:

Why thank you Linnie!

 

I lived near London for two years in the 1990s. When I came home, I couldn't believe how broad everyone sounded!

 

What you get used to I guess!
