The cat ate our mouse.

 

Well that's what we think happened. The giant ginger didn't say so but that's probably what happened, we feed him too so well we don't know, he was just being a cat I guess.

Here I'll put it in for you... Sad

@ MWoo7: would it be true to say you have found your spiritual home in this thread? :lol:

 

My Grrr !: since when has the phrase 'spits and spots' been an official weather term? Every time I hear a tv weatherperson say it I blush for them. It's something that Mary Poppins says, for gods' sake!

I've done lots of Grrrs at weather forecasts, but they're probably all on page 1! :lol:
 

"Mist and murk".
What the hell is Mist and Murk? Never mist, never murk. Mist and friggin' murk. :angry:

When people flung their potty waste out of the window, they would shout “Gardez l'eau” [gar-day low]. That's French for “watch out for the water”. We probably get the word “loo” from this expression, although some people think it comes from “Room 100” which is what European people used to callthe bathroom.Feb 16, 2005

(I suspect the 'European people" who "used to call the bathroom" "Room 100" did so because, even tho they lived in a smoke-black shack, atwixt the rocky heath, suddenly having indoor plumbing made the place positively palatial...

hence "Room 100"... 

still, it is infinitely easier to just say, "loo", rather than having to submit to differentiate between two two-syllable words, 'bathroom' and 'toilet', isn't it?

Loo is so much better than well I just can't believe it, some people in certain fancy places, you wouldn't believe this

AND THEY WON"T CHANGE ! using it no matter how much I make fun,

THEY SAY TOILET !   "I must find the toilet now"... I'm like>>>"oh really? so much thanks fo r that note of cheer."
Its never something polite like... the bath, a fresh room,  are your facilities close by?, powder room ANYTHING BU T NOT TOILET !
"""""  that's like saying *ding-ding on goblet glass* please excuse me I really must find the crapper! do go on!  ENJOY ! "



update: The above was the grrr.

Other quick ponderings of profound insight, so in the prestigious Queen's tomes of proper and eloquent English weather of lingo/hocus-pocus/terminology are there differences of these spits and spirts oh what were they called? and the other ...brb.

OH distinguished descriptions of murks, mists, spits or spats and spots of dribble? eh?!?!?!!

so Room 101 was actually next door to the lavatories, then? Well, that would explain a lot.

It depends where you live.  'Loo' is popular around here, and also 'toilets' (plural) when appropriate, and 'bog' or 'bogs' (informal)

no, the room marked 101 was the only other door... and it led to the great out-of-doors, obviously ...

and uh, no; doors 1 - 99 were, unfortunately, non-existent... but there was door 100!

Sorry..... It's a noun, not a verb, so an acceptable usage would be:  "I've got the turtle's head, so I'm just nipping to the bog."

Nouns have been known to become verbs.... and that, with turtle anatomy tossed in, makes for an entertaining day... what country is that custom carried out? I should visit! However, that may be too much information, and therefore could be cumbersome, therefore there is "BOG!!"

You can bog if you want to! :tu:

Around here, it's just a word for 'toilet'.

i know but along with 'toilet' one has to add "I must need navigate my way to the toilet!" or "toi-toi", if yer seriously uppercrust... i use it...

With "bog" you'd only have to say, "I gotta bog" and navigate.... grrr at the folks who insisted, initially, that when you've got something to do, you can't simply depart their company without first announcing why and/or where you're off to!

Is that a shaky relationship or what?

If you were to be engaged in a conversation (in the Weoley Castle Pub, for example) and you were to say "Bog" and walk away, your actions would be understood, and your return expected after a suitable time delay.

Given the extent of the patrons' alcoholism and liver disease in The Weoley Castle Pub, any excursion can be a challenge, and potentially fatal. :yes:

They way that buses pull into the bus stop with their backside sticking out into the road, so presenting a hazard for passing traffic such as cyclists. :grr:

Harry Rednap.  The latest "Christopher Biggins" reality show star who is now cropping up everywhere on TV adverts, will no doubt have a cameo on EastEnders and will be treading the boards at Christmas in some fuppin panto.
