Sorry for the confusion!

I use the phrases JAH! Bless up! and IRIE! a lot

and

la pura vida

ciao cara

/me segnet die jubelnde menge (/me blesses the cheering crowd)

du hast wohl nen knall (apparently you got a bang = apparently you´re round the bend)

bau massiv - massiv bau (roll a massive - massive roll)

my newest fav (reserved for best friends) is:

mein lieber asterix, gehen wir hinkelsteine sammeln
(my dear asterix, lets go collect menhirs)

and: mein lieber asterix, gehen wir wildschweine jagen (lets go hunt wild boars)

I thought of another, instead of swearing, my mom will yell "Skiet in de broek!" which translates from the family Dutch to "shit in the pants!"

Aye, pero yo tengo una clase de español, pues yo puedo entender(más o menos) que usted está hablando sobre. No sé mucho excepto por volcabulario y gramatica, pero es bastante que necesito saber para ahora.

One of my inside jokes with my friends is:
Yo tengo pantalones locos. Y un perro morado vive en los pantalones locos.

We're crazy

Kinda a funny story - ok so everyone in my extended family back a gazillion generations is Dutch so everyone besides my generation speaks with accents, the older the person, the heavier the accent. One time some relatives of mine were playing Scatagories and for one of the topics, everyone had names of inventors, but when Uncle Jan (John) read his list, he had something like "sledding". So everyone was like "Uncle Jan, sledding is not an inventor!" and he goes, in a VERY heavy accent, "I said de tahpeec vahs In Vinter" (In Winter, not Inventor)

Now whenever someone says something in too heavy of an accent to understand, we all start yelling "IN VINTER IN VINTER!"

Things I learn from listening to French songs:

Je ne dors plus
Je te desire
Prends moi
Je suis a toi

Je veux aller au bout de me fantasmes
Je sais que c'est interdit
Je suis folle
Je m'abandonne


Translation:

I can't sleep anymore
I desire you
Take me
I'm yours

I want to go to the end of my fantasies
I know it is forbidden
I am crazy
I am letting myself go


One of these days I'm gonna get myself in trouble by inadvertantly singing that in the presence of a French-speaking person.
I also say "oy vey" and "c'est la vie" a lot. And half of the time, I replace yes with "oui" or "si" (or more rarely, "da") and I repace and with "y" (usually accidentally).

Maybe I shouldn't translate. We're such a rude bunch, us Boers.

i love "gaan kak in die mielieveld"
