Hi all,


for those of you who don\'t know that website yet - get immersed in a wonderful yet bizarre world of never-thought-of, absurd questions and answers thereto (if any):


http://www.guardian.co.uk/notesandqueries/


And you can make your own contribution as well - enjoy!

Thanks icon_smile.gificon_smile.gif

I\'m still in an 80\'s kinda mood... Oooh, mate, how I long for a good, tasty pint of beer there, sitting in the pub, listening to you know what music, or maybe in that secretive party there in good old London,


and now...


reading The Guardian\'s jaw-breakers!!


Again, thanks, thanks, thanks!

Thanks, Steffen.


Toured \"Semantic enigmas\" and one section on great German words ends with the question of how to say \'feisty\' in German. Since there\'s a sparkling wine Feist, I\'m off to investigate. (The procrastination possibilites at notes and queries seem limitless.)
