it's called slang mr.Git.. different to constant misspelling. Perhaps you have slang in the UK ?


off topic... tell me.... do you bank at Barclay's ?

Re: Nostradamus and the current revolts

Thanks for that Lionel, incidentally even an illiterate git like me knows its 2 l`s in travelled, and i don`t see any mention of my banking details there either, and lastly, you poor deluded old thing you, do you seriously believe what people put in their profile is actually true? I bet when you browse those "adult" sites when Mrs Grytchie is down the high street you really do believe that Linda only loves you ...... ( I have to say though that in my case I surprised myself in being totally honest about my profile)

Re: Nostradamus and the current revolts

ack.. seems it's one of those Brit-American things tripping us up again..
...
Travel

However, with some final consonants, even in cases when the preceding vowel is unstressed (so you would think that there would be no doubling), doubling does occur in standard received British English (but is not favoured in American English), so ‘travel’ becomes ‘travelling/travelled’.




and as for linda?... damn, I thought she really did love me.

Nil dahlin'.... you comment was followed with my mate mr.git's comment "over to you grynch" and given some of his other anti-US retoric I made my comments above to him.

p.s... you never bashed US ? ... geez girl.. I got groaned at just for usin' the word "poutine" in a post. ... that was of course before you found out I was half "proper" Cannuck.
Sorry, but you know that poutine is sacred!
