Easter Egg.

Woo hoo!! I got an Easter egg! Chris, (my ex-girlfriend now best friend, who I still seem to live with) and I, promised not to buy each other Easter eggs. Months ago she said, “we can’t really afford it, so let’s agree not to buy for each other!” OK! I agreed. So I walk downstairs …

Ordinary Saturday.

Hi, I’ve been feeling down, very tired inside. I’ve been working pretty hard on making my site, and I’m pretty happy with it, even though I know it’s not modern, in fact I like it because it’s not modern. At first I was going to make a little site based on the tiny amount of …

Rub your Face in it/Rub my Face in it. Idiom

This idiom comes from the way that people used to punish puppies (I believe). If a puppy would poop (defecate/shit) on the carpet, owners used to rub their (the dog’s!) nose in it, to warn it not to do it again. With people it means, “you know I don’t like it, so don’t make me …

Jump Through Hoops. Idiom

This means to make people do far too many things, or make too many unfair demands before you give them something. Maybe a woman will make a man jump through hoops before agreeing to be his boyfriend, “Come shopping with me, wait hours for me, take me home, pick me up later on, wait for …

Bloody “Webmoney”

I’m so sick of “Webmoney” (Russian payment method). What’s taken weeks to get from Webmoney, I got from Paypal in one night before I went to bed!! “Jump through hoops” y’bugger?!?!?! “Register (fair enough) fill out your passport details, send us a photocopy of your passport, update your profile type to a higher type, register …

Labour of Love.

This means you work on something because you love it, and you “put your heart into it”. Like this website for me, I have worked hard to be able to make it, but it’s been worthwhile for me, because I love it. A labour of love, you might not be getting paid for doing it, …

Put the Shoe on the Other Foot. Idiom

This means “how would you like it, if I did it to you”. Or “imagine if you were the one it was happening to”. (After a tsunami) “Look at those people on the TV!! Looting! Fighting over food!! I know a tsunami is a terrible thing but they shouldn’t lose their moral standards” “Well, put …

Thumb up your Arse. (Vulgar) (idiom?)

This saying is considered to be vulgar. “Arse” means buttocks, in this case it means “anus”. “I’m doing all of this work, and you’re sitting there with your thumb up your arse!” It means that someone isn’t doing anything to help you, or the person is inactive. “I’ll be able to offer students more of …

Something Strange Happened Last Night!

Something strange happened last night………………..I went out! Yes, I left the comfort of my recliner, and the sanctity of the internet to go out for a meal with other human beings. It felt strange 🙂 intimidating, somewhat like a fetish: I felt naughty but I liked it! (I’m joking, I’m just saying I hardly ever …
