Anyway...the thing that might keep me coming back to her blog is her daily UK English to US English translations.today I learned the UK slang term "knackered" and "cream crackered", which both mean "tired", "worn out", or "exhausted" . I just might end up slipping "knackered" into my vocabulary. I've already been known to use the term "dodgey" (meaning "not in good condition"...as in "I've got a dodgey knee" or "That table looks kind of dodgey". Brits, correct me if I'm wrong!).
I'm such a wannabe Brit! But can you blame me?...it's in my blood! Most of my ancestors were from the UK...I am Scotch-Irish, English, Welsh...with some Swiss and German in there too. But I feel like a UK girl (or "lass"!) at heart. And I'd love to see the UK someday. I get jealous of my hubby since he's been to London and actually has friends there. And my brother has been to Ireland.
