Didn't watch it, but just saw her pic in the paper. That's Yvette that is, for definite.
You can probably just make it up to be honest. "She was the school mattress, someone once caught her fingering herself with a twix in the girls' loos." That sort of thing.
JOKES: I TOTALLY DID HER BEHIND THE BIKE SHEDS or something.
Awful joke made even worse by putting 'to' instead of 'from'.
Nice man. Nice.
She came across as the definition of posh last night
So speaking queens english and having money... is unlikely if you're a statey?
heavily middle class area. Kids either go to the state, the day-school for private or board. The state was doing well in the league tables back then, so a lot of parents didn't feel the need to private it up. But I knew a lot of people with a lot of money at my state (not me, before you start - i was one of the less well-to-do kids).
What I mean is: completely dependent on area, funding and quaility of school. fin.
peace. And yes it does :)
I lived in Hampshire for years...
State schools there were full of kids from well heeled middle class families who could have afforded to send their kids private, but chose not to on the grounds that so many of the local 'free' schools were excellent. A pattern repeated across the country.
has nothing to do with manifest destiny, family background, inequality, the alignment of your stars or the relative availability of crayfish and rocket on foccacia in your locale and everything to do with the fact that you're a stupid reactionary oxygen thief tit.
I hope that you don't intend to reproduce.
(no idea whether that's evidence for the defence or the prosecution, mind you.)
He's talking English 'posh'. ;-)
and comes and goes depending on alcohol, company and which words I'm using.
My favourite Scots are the ones that sound posh and become all incoherent, 'broad brit moonlit nit tha nit', scary ass fuckers after a wee dram (or five).
Otherwise he sounded like posh Manchester. I found out the first time he brother rang him and he spoke quietly but in an accent so thick I briefly thought he was Eastern European. If he was in conversation with a group then his accent could change between talking from one person to another.
Of course, certain words give it away big style- MURDURR (in the same way that even the softest of liverpudlian voices will say Mee-duh).
There was a programme on bbc scotland a few weeks ago about a rough council estate in Ayrshire, called The Scheme (it was pulled after 2 episodes because of a legal wrangle.) I could not understand what any of them were saying, apart from the occasional phrase which I was able to translate for xylo. (amazing- if tragic- viewing btw. You can get it on iplayer.)
He did a documentary about homosexuality. When he was speaking to his parents, he speaks in a broad Scottish accent, and when he turned to the camera he was American/Canadian again. He said the accent was bullied out of him when they moved the States as a kid, but he kept it at home. It was pretty freaky.
For what it's worth, this is more than likely quite true. But still, GASP!
Bamnan, thank you for my computer screen (and my chin) now having irn bru dribbling right down it.
I mean, we've all taken the piss out of bamnan before.
best day ever
and as I've said here before my brother is learning disabled and I have a lot of experience with it.
But just something about that sentence... If I'd been drinking, I would have spat it all over the screen.
"You don't know her at all blah blah blah"
But she seemed the kind of posh that turns it's nose up at state schools - private education or GTFO
But being 'posh' is hard to define anyway. My home town is white middle class to its core, and therefore easily 70 per cent of the school (when i attended) were well off enough in the state, although obviously not on the same scale as the private kids.
Silly assumption though: anyone who does well can become arrogant in life - a queens english accent shouldn't seal the judgement deal.
At least when I kept doing stuff like this I had Pigfoot to repeatedly dick over me and learn me some valuable lessons. I fear that you're gonna stay stuck like this.
better to be this way than a glib cardboard cutout of cynicism, eh?
OH NO. STUCK ON AN INTERNET MESSAGEB-
wait. Not real.
I was making a flippant, jokey comment and you chose to see it as an attack. Go on, call me a nasty little troll again, if you want.
sometimes, you *are* a nasty little troll. You've been an asshat with me since I joined the board for little in the way of good reason. But it seems you can't take someone rubbing you up the wrong way at all. I wasn't being entirely serious when I said about doctors, I was being a little deliberately mean.
Maybe lighten up a little yourself. Sucks when people hound you eh?
I was just thinking that we've all been so carried away by what is and isn't sexist recently that we hadn't really had a futile argument about state education.
F this board.
please refrain from using it.
YES! *punches air* FIGHT! :D
I think all it shows is that those who care about BB are in the the BB thread.
The rest of us were like, "'Sunshine Martin'? What kind of fucking name is that. Wait it's a girl? Why's he called 'Martin' then? WTF? I'm glad I don't watch that show..." ;)
WILL YOU FUCK
"Hi, I'm Sunshine Martin and I'd like to be on Big Brother."
"WILL YOU FUCK?"
Maybe I should hook up with her and we can have a kid called rainbow.
