Petty Things That Get On Your Nerves...

Recommended Posts

Yeah I think that's called the natural accent of Swedish people when they speak English. I imagine you would sound like a right c**t if you were speaking Swedish rather than English.

At least they didn't speak with a Dundonian accent. Now that would have been fucking annoying.

Bought a watercolour by James McBey a few weeks ago and ended up selling it on today. :( I made a fair bit on it, so much that I couldn't walk away from the deal, but I really liked the painting. I've got more money now but I'm culturally poorer :P

It's still a wrench to sell something like that all the same. Although I still have his etching of the first view of Jerusalem the British army had in WW1 which I'm definitely not selling to anyone. It's an artist proof as well one of the first six off the plate. The Imprial war museum have one Aberdeen art gallery has another. Thats part of my pension fund.

Lost my fucking passport and I don't have a provisional. Ah well, looks like no nights out for me for a while until I apply for a provisional.

Yep, I have a lot of paintings for that purpose as well. If I had more money I'd be stacking them up in a secure warehouse somewhere. But I'm married with children and I'm skint. :lol:

That IS nightmare. Me and my mates were getting into pubs aged 16 because we joined the youth hostel association and they gave you a membership card with a birthdate and a photo on it. We lied about our ages of course but it passed off as acceptable id back in the day. :D

What did you expect them to sound like? Extremely deep accent with the word "Ken" at the end of every sentence?

Yeah I think that's called the natural accent of Swedish people when they speak English. I imagine you would sound like a right c**t if you were speaking Swedish rather than English.

There's nothing 'natural' about it, I suspect it's a product of learning much of their English (conversationally) from US imported TV.

Fake or imported American accents are shite because they're not as good as the real thing.

At least they didn't speak with a Dundonian accent. Now that would have been fucking annoying.

Dundonian accent is fine it's their own sub-language that's the issue.

Listening to an album for the first time, and not realising that it's on shuffle until half the songs have played. <_<

Went for a haircut yesterday and asked for a '3' and a '2' when I meant to ask for a '3' and a '4'. I now have a skinhead and look like a complete and utter faggot.

I'm quite annoyed you won't be there tomorrow to point and laugh at you.

Good stuff, I look forward to laughing at you. Remember to walk past me at some point tomorrow in case I forget. :lol:

Nah, I'm not bringing him again for a while, not after the nightmare he was at the Elgin game a couple of weeks ago.

Doubt I'll be at the Smiddy beforehand, getting a lift and not leaving until 1.30pm so I'll probably just have a beer before I leave the flat.
