Many French phrases, including

J'taime
Je ne sais pas
Je ne said quois
Voulez vous couchez avec moi ce soir?
Zut alors!

And then just because I'm weird:

Ostorozhno! Dveri zakryvayutsya. This is Russian for Caution! The doors are closing.

C'est la vie -- is one of my fav!!

There's a word my guy often says -- it's Arab, if I remember it well, and it's "Zuby" -- something like a dirty way to say "it's a pity"

hehehe.. me too... sounds like the bumblebee man :P






* Sometimes I use english words to replace bad words . like:

- Deja de ser tan "bitch" - o que "man" tan "bitch"
- Préstame el "fucking" lápiz

and there's a phrase from a song of Manu Chao that I like a lot

"je ne t'aime plus, mon amoir"

Ich bin müde

Several Yiddish words have dug their way into everyday conversations (especially in Hollywood....lol)

Bubalah = dear
Nu? = well
Tsuris = trouble
Mensch = man (meaning someone who is a decent human being)
Nosh = snack
Kvetch = to nag or complain
