I'm always yonks behind on this thread (yonks - another Brit-ism I like). I never heard the word bolshy used when I was across the pond. I only became aware of it as awhile back an online Scottish mate dubbed me BolshyBear coz I was always headbuttin' wit da man! Apparently it's short for Bolshevik - ya know, a rebel.

When I took German we learned to pronounce the K in KN words and it was a bit too weird for me.

I still use the word loo - I think it's the nicest way to describe the crapper. I made the mistake of slipping and calling it a bathroom once in England and got laughed at with all the usual "so you want to take a bath then eh?" yucks. I think bathroom is a nice euphemism, besides, our baths are in the same room with the toilet so it makes perfect sense. Why you would separate the 2 is beyond me. And being claustrophobic I didn't appreciate having to go to a tiny windowless closet to use the toilet. :hrmpf: LOL.

While we're on these things - I noticed that I spell awhile as, well, awhile - one word. Jemaine spelled it as 2 words - a while. I wonder which is correct. It couldn't be that he spells words more correctly could it? :lol:

I say 'bathroom' sometimes, but usually 'ladies' if there are cubicles involved.....
I'd usually say 'a while'....at least I think I would.

Bolshevik comes from 'bolshoi'(big). They were the majority party in one of the parliaments formed during the Russian Revolution. However, many people were killed, so probably they were pretty bolshy!! :D

I remember during the brief time I studied Russian, learning the phrase for big construction worker. Sadly, I can no longer remember the "construction worker" part of the phrase, but I do remember the bolshoi part. In part because of the band called The Bolshoi and in part because of the ballet company. Horosho!

I took Russian history and lit coz I was bored of all the other types of history and lit. But do you think I can remember any of it now? :roll:

OT but I just installed Firefox and for the first time I can see my gifs move at normal speed, fast speed, in fact. :thumb:

No bothers... I have taken Russian (level 1) several times and all I can remember is how to order a beer, a very rude phrase, and how the instructors spelt my first name. I like to think of it as $$ well spent 8) Since if I ever am able to make it to Russia I can tell them my name and order a frosty beverage :drinkers:

And the very rude phrase will always come in handy.

Not great, is it? Have tried to stop him from saying it, but to no avail. :(

I've heard people say washroom, bathroom, restroom, ladies room, or men's room.
Oh yes, and in Canada, we call a cola a 'pop'. Sort of like soda pop but just pop.

Also, is "catch my fat" a British slang phrase? o_o I have a friend from Wales who says it, in the way of "catch my drift". Like, "I'm going to stay at his house tonight, if you catch my fat."
Maybe my friend says it to weird me out... :rolleyes:

Oh, and I love saying yonks instead of years.

What about toilet? Or my favourite, turlet (don't they say that back East?)

Do you ever say 'soft drink' or is that just a Quebec thing? A Montreal thing?
