À la Français?.... [Oct. 2nd, 2006|01:32 pm]
A Word to the Wise


[Current Mood |amusedamused]

Most people here tell me 'you're not learning French, you're learning Québecois'- bearing that in mind, here's a small sample of Québecois slang, learned in the last few days....

to be bandé is to have a hard-on (learned this when i was trying to tell hubby that bumblebee gobies were striped)

un tronche a nerd

être chaud (rather than to 'avoir chaud') to be drunk (rather than to feel hot).

hmm.... i'm reluctant to use the word, it seems to me to only be applicable to boys at private schools decades ago, regardless of popularity (though often unpopular)....

at least that's my impression. anyways, this girl wears a jumper with cavorting animals knitted around it in a band.... (although to be honest, i'm starting to see the emergence of a worrying trend in patterned knitted goods here in Canada, as the colder weather wears on.... )
