    DJ,

    Be nice! A Russian will often pronounce "fill" as "feel," so that's what she wrote, you dirty old (young?:-)) man!

    Kniga, sometimes I wonder about people. You are stating the bleeding obvious. My comment was purely flippant humour, no one needed this to be explained. But thanks anyway for that!

    DJ,

    I always leap to the defense of lovely ladies against the sharp barbs of ill fortune! The ladies generally appreciate it even if you don't. By the way, you do get full marks for the quick quip...

    sorry
    is " ***" in the meaning of "doing nothin" something normal and logical??
    that's why it's "IDIOM"
    it's about to bacome an idiotic discussion like "what's better - socks or towel"

    oh people stop taking p'i's's out of Russian typical mistakes...
    or sometimes they say "taking the Mikey out of smth" or even "extracting the Michael out of smth"

    one of my embarrassments - "up your bottom" instead of "bottoms up"

    And it looks like it is not only Russian problem - you cannot imagine what simple English folks put in their health self-assessment notes when they do not know how to spell "diarrhoea"

    Or indeed roasted,

    sorry here we go again. I can't talk, my Russian spelling is so bad you have to guess what the word is!

    Probably right - but I live in fear that somewhere in Rotterdam there lurks a coven of two kilo hamsters with beady little eyes and pointy yellow teeth trying to avoid the clutches of Dutch butchers...... ;-)))))
