Fun in England by JohnnyG on 2001-12-11 22:53:47

I'll be in Manchester Thursday morning. A few days there and then off to Devon. I'll be meeting with associates in London on Monday and then back to Austin on Tuesday. Software trade between the UK and the US is my ultimate purpose but Pub grub and drinking unlimited amounts of stout, ale and lager is on the agenda as well. Incommunicado with potatoe during the excursion?? Well of course, but I will be submitting something at some point. I just don't know what and when it will hit. After Christmas I'll be in Frankfurt eating kraut and drinking beer of a different sort. My Deutsche needs some brushing up. Anybody with some hints on how to communicate effectively in the German language? I have some of the standard Berlitz tapes I've used in previous visits. Maybe some of you out in spuds land might have some German communication skills you'd like to pass on to Johnny. Either way I'm gonna butcher the Teutonic language and I really don't give a shit. They know what the product does they just need to sign a contract written in English. If your near any of the English cities I mentioned let me know. I'll buy you a couple of pints.

  'Fraid not - I wish I was, not just for the free beer, but it'd be great to meet up with a fellow Potatoe-er wherever we were. The closest I get is about 400 miles away, which to be honest is too far to travel for a few bevs. Warum willst du toten die deutsche Language? (Sorry, I just butchered it myself) They all speak English anyway...

  Those damn Germans have a different word for everything, what makes them so special.I'll stick to "Gooten tag" , "Zayyyrr gooot" "Schnopps bitta",,,,,well you get the point. It's 70F in Austin and we wear short sleeves every season around here. I was wearing sweaters in mid-August around the UK. Its cooooold up there man. Free bier is goot yahhh.

  Well i'll be in London, but only for a few hours on sunday early afternoon! I then travel up back home with my family from Chrismtas. I think is impossible to have a rendez-vous, however, i hope you enjoy the wonder of england - bring a thick pair of socks and some woolly gloves.

  Underacheiving well-make upped women? That's the dream! The only Essex girl I know is so cynical she could be me, and looks good anyway, without make-up. Dang! Can't I play with the bints?

  This brings up something I've always wondered about -- what is it about Essex? I keep hearing jokes to the effect that Essexers (Esingians? Escarodes?) are highly-sexed come-hither types. Is it all a PR campaign? Is it just a subconscious response to the letters s.e.x. in the name? This may seeem like a frivolous question but in fact I have heard several jokes to this effect, on TV and elsewhere.

  I don't know why? It might be the accent, but Essex girls do tend to be bints. Obviously, not all, but they have a trait of being the small, fuller-figuered, overlymade-up, ladies. Essex Girls. Aaah.

  I just found this link that puts the lie to the Essex question. It seems that

  I have so little to say and so much time to say it, wait, scratch that, reverse it. Guess what dvd I watched in the tube with wings? I'm just glad to be home for the next 2 weeks. I have travelled more extensively than I wanted and must now sleep for the next 24 hours.
