No he shouldn't, we got beat off Hearts at the weekend.

My apologies!

Okay, how about this then...

Edit: BTW, should you not be adding "Unbeaten at home in 2010" to your sig?wink.gif

One of my flatmates pronounces "yolk" exactly as it's written. I can't decide if this is a RTBC because it's funny, or a PTTGOYN because she's 19, and it's tragic.

Hold it right there, how do YOU pronounce yolk?

To rhyme with "soak".

So like "yoke", with no "l" in there at all? Or just a little bit of "l"?

Most people pronounce it Yolk like Oak. I suspect she pronounces it like Olk.

A silent "l", yeah like "yoke".

Yeah...I suspect that I pronounce the "ol" bit like you would with "old".ph34r.gif

Speaking of silent l's, when I was in high school I used to work at a call centre in Kirkcaldy. 80% of the time I gave out the address to English customers they would correct my pronunciation of Kirkcaldy to pronounce the l. Kirk Aldi.

Phew. Glad I got that off my chest.

Rhymes with boak, obviously.

I cringed when my Grandad once tried to use the word "boak" but pronounced it "bow-ack".

The same man pronounces "Audi" "Oddie".

I have just spent 2 hours watching a collaborative Youtube Blog between a young couple, one of whom looks like David Tenant and lives in Stirling/Edinburgh and the other whom lives in Sydney.

Link? I know too many people who live in Stirling/Edinburgh not to take a look.

Search "vloglovers" and you'll find the channel. The guy is about 20, was at Wallace High or whatever the Stirling one is called, recently dropped out of Uni at Edinburgh. He had been doing English Lit, but intends to reapply to do Film.

FFS I shouldn't know this... it's some random bloke off the internet that looks like Docor Who :ph34r:

No. Usually with a bit of T. And toast. Ah haaa!

"What begins with T?"

"Breakfast!"

"No, I'm talking about the letter."

"No, the Postman doesn't come till half past ten."

Just had a lovely steak pie that I got from the butchers at the end of last week.

Unfortunately I just noticed it was 2 days out of date so Steven and me are having a "first one to throw up is a pussy" competition. I reckon I have the edge in this due to my 23 years of constant curry.

Just noticed the two posts above mine. :lol:

Barr's have removed the "American" from the title of their Cream Soda. This probably happened about 1997 but I have only just noticed.

That's one of the things I miss about living up the road, Harry Gows in Tain High Street.
