For some reason Tami thought it was funny when I said Half Past Seven.

So, Half Past Seven.

If you want me to speak Stoke, I can.

Dunna wurry about that, duck. I aren't even bothered.

Half past seven is funny? Now I have Catherine Tate in my head...

Do people in England still say PHWOAR when they're talking about sexy times, or did that die out in the early part of the decade? (I had a subscription to a really trashy British woman's magazine in 2001 that was a gift from a friend in Leeds)

This one was also popular when i was around London...

"butters" meaning a person is ugly.


Specifically - ugly in the face, but with a nice body. It comes from butterface, as in "nice body, but her face......"

Ayup me duckies.

Now I don't know what to have for me tea.
