Any joy today Jay??

Car Boots are just starting to open up round here again.

Mostly full of shite, but sometimes get a few bits and pieces.

I love Lego aswell and you sometimes manage to pick up a few bits.

Yeah car boot sales are just like yard sales, except (and not surprisingly) they are done mostly from the backs of peoples cars lol (boots = trunks)

We tend to do this "Car booting" when its shit outside and the intelligent location of choice is always some muddy as shit farmers field !

Expect rain, hotdogs, cheap shit and loads of old people walking around for 2 -3 hours on a Sunday morning Very Happy

Nah it is fun and you can pick up some good stuff at times!

Listen to him...tsk tsk..,.. "Help the YANKS out"....I KNOW what a car boot sale is...Dont be so "U.K.-centric"... rofl Wink Its a yard sale/garage sale!!

cheers

Andre (Who learned all he needed to know from watching Benny Hill, Keeping up Appearances, Dr. Who, Simon Pegg films, and listening to Elton John, Queen, and the Beatles!!!.....Oooohhh...and dont forget those WICKED Hammer Films..GREAT stuff there! Lee, Cushing, Prowse...Seems like 'ol George wanted to re-use Hammer's stable of actors for the Star Wars films, eh? Grand Moff Tarkin..shudder..god I wanted to leap into the screen and grab that twat by the throat!! ) lol!

Maybe we should have a U.K.~ U.S. translation guide here, I'll begin:

Bangers = sausages
Mash = mashed taters
Nippies = mashed turnips
Car boot = yard sale/flea market
Mac(k) = hat/cap
Twat = twat
Bin = trash can
Trolley = shopping cart
Vicar = priest/pastor
Mate = friend/chum
Fag = ciggy or any member of Culture Club (Or MOST of those 80s Brit-Pop bands, not being HOMOPHOBIC here, only honest! Wink)
Chips = french fries
Crisps = potato chips (....I know I know...bare with me here people..lol)
Soccer/Futball fan = drunken ape
Droog/Bruiser = me
George Bush = hate-mongering redneck that unilaterally attacks a country for its oil reserves and attempts to bully and police the rest of the planet

...Ooooops......was just thinking aloud on that last one kiddies...SORRY!!!...SHOULD have read: "American President". Shocked unsure

Well then, I hope that helps to clear things up a bit for all of the U.S. fans here, until next time!! Very Happy

cheers drinking2

...did someone say "ugly Americans"..?!?! Now now, ugliness is a cross CULTURAL occurance, as is illustrated very clearly by Margaret Thatcher, Prince Charles, Louie Anderson, Peter Mayhew, Mr. Pregnant, Victor French, Adrian Brody, Danny DeVito, and MANY others ACROSS the globe!!

rofl drinking

Andre

Good good Stu, laughter is the only saviour for this planet! ....Well...that is except for Sam Jones as Flash Gordon...remember what Freddy said about him, right? "FLASH!! Ah-AHHHHHH...Saviour of the UNIVERSE...cue Brian May's wicked guitar riffs... Razz

On a side note man, I'll be posting those goodies for you tomorrow...wish me luck and hope that I dont get sodomized on the postage!!! affraid :nailbiting:

drinking2 cheers

Andre

* EDIT * Wanted to edit this because of my mention of "80s Brit Pop" earlier. I wanted to say that one of my all TIME favorite songs and music videos was from a band called Talk Talk. The song is "It's My Life". Yes it is synth-based and poppy, but I have always found it rather haunting and the way that the video is constructed is aces to me. I am big into animal rights, I'm sure this is a factor...

Thus concludes my blathering for now. Wink

:clap: drinking2

Just to nip it in the bud , watch the political references guys. Everyone's entitled to their opinion but these have a way of getting too intense.
