  1. I met this girl in a gig, and she's the backing vocal. So after talking to her, things are goin great, the chemistry was there etc...so after the gig i decided to ask for her no...and in Indonesian I said "Handphone kamu berapa?" Translated as...."Cellphone yours how many?" and ofcourse she answered " one ". I'm such an idiot!!!! So I left in embarassment!
  2. Man, the same exact thing happened to me on the Union Terrace once. I hate when that happens.

    Could've been worse. It could've translated to: "Please pee on me." :eek:
  4. I think that happened on the Union Terrace once too. My memory of those days is a bit fuzzy.

    Wait, why is this so embarassing? What did you want to ask her?

    Disagree-she's the idiot, she didn't give you the phone number.
  9. I once rang room service at a cottage-resort in the Philippines, and in my best Tagalog, declared what translated to "I would like to order the chicken-basket (etc. etc.), .... and please take your clothes off at the door before entering my cottage, and leave them in the plastic bag." :eek:

    What I meant to say was "... and please take the plastic bag of clothes (laundry) that someone left at the entrance to my cottage."
  10. Wow, I'm glad I'm not alone on this one.:) Well I dont think she meant what she said...but tough luck for her! She was cute tho...


    So did she take off her clothes before entering your cottage?? If that really happens, that would've been many people's fantasy you know.....

    i found out in a french lesson about 3 years ago that if you mis pronouce 'salut' (hello) as 'salood' (i think), you instead say b*stard.

    Best thing was, it was in a practice for an aural exam
    "salood, j'mappelle ben, je voudrais un glace de citroen svp"
    :"B*stard, i am ben, i want a lemon ice cream please"

  12. LOL!!!

    Now I have to wipe my monitor dry......

    Water down your nose is not a pleasant feeling!!:D :D
  13. Several years ago, I was watching an interview (don't ask why, I don't know) with the French Prime Minister Jacques Chiraq (sp?) . HE was asked about the most common type of dog in PAris and he replied 'the b*astard'. He was quickly corrected and he corrected himslef almost at the ssme time - 'the mongrel'.

    I had always thought that French for b*stard was batard!!!! I didn't know that you could try to say hello and get a black eye!!!!

    Thanks. I'm assuming you're talking about the Conklin avatar and not the short-lived avatar of me in the badly-drawn santa hat. If so, I can be had for $23.47 and a pint of Jagermeister ;)
