She said she was going back to her original name of Katie Price but I don't think that lasted very long. They are in Hello! magazine a lot and they are getting married in September. I know an awful lot about celeb gossip.

Hi April
Do false chests make a noise when touched That would get some attention.

laura the word chav has only just appeared over here. It's the media that introduced it to people's attention. although me and my friend have been using the word for a while cos we found a website called chavscum.co.uk that was absolutely hysterical

before that, I would have called chavs 'council'. That's not what people round here say though - that's just what me and my friends call them. It's not very pc though

or 'rude boys' and 'rude girls'

hahaha on the speak norn iron site they have a funny page about chatting with locals, heres the cut out and keep tips they provide



This part will help you have an actual conversation with a Northern Irish person.

Talking to a Northern Irish person can be quite a traumatic experience if you are not properly prepared. We hope to help you take the anxiety and danger out of talking to a resident of Northern Ireland. Starting the conversation can be a difficult and tricky task, so in this section we hope to show you safe and proven ways of striking up a rapport with your new Northern Irish friend.

First Meeting

1] Smile - this is important in the early stages as it will make them feel calm

2] Don't make sudden movements -like quickly reaching for your mobile phone from your inside jacket pocket

3] Start the conversation with, "Bout ye?" - this is a universal greeting in NI and a good icebreaker

4] Allow your companion to respond - if you don't let them, it could lead to flared tempers


There are many, many more. A great conversation topic with a NI person is Alchohol. This is one subject all Northern Irish people are familiar with. If you are in range of a Bar or Pub, it may further your experience to invite them for a drink. Be careful in your choice of words. Use something like:

"Oh, look, mucker, there is a bar over there. Would you like to go for a pint, mate?"

If you ask properly, they will reply "Yes".

It's a well known fact that alcohol plays a major part in their culture and everyday lives. To coin a phrase, "They drink like salmon".
Get on the right side of a Northern Irish person by this stage, and your well on your way to experience the conversation of a life time. One that you'll not forget in a hurry.

At this stage it's important to remind you of the dangers of some of the locals. Some folk look down right scary. You can tell that they would be a bad choice for conversation by these visual and audible signs:

1] Wide, moist eyes
2] Imposing mannerisms
3] Grunting
4] Food caught in beard
5] Strong, foul smelling stench
6] Twitching
7] Barely recognisable speech

Now you've enticed a subject into the bar, you really do need to set up a situation that is both fun and safe.

- Don't mention "The Troubles" and tensions may arise and may not be fitting conversation in a Belfast bar
- Don't ask personal questions, like where they live etc
- Do offer as much drink as you can comfortably afford
- Do tell jokes, as Northern Irish humour is quite rife in NI
- Talk about the weather - it's their best subject.

Your encounter should run smoothly, if it should go badly we recommend these excuses if you find yourself in bother.

1] "I'm sorry [insert name of NI person], but I have to go to the cash machine to get more money for drink."
Get up and leave. Your companion will believe you and let you leave. Do not return.

2] "It's been "magic" to have had a drink with you but I have to go now. My ferry is leaving in 45mins."
Again, they will believe you as many people use the ferry to Scotland as means of escape.

3] "Would you like another drink?"
If the the reply is "yes", hand them a five pound note, to go to the bar. They will accept with disbelief and head for the bar. Leave promptly. They won't be to angry with you as they just made a fiver, and got a few free drinks.

These tips should ensure an enjoyable encounter with a local. Follow these guidelines and your trip to NI will be a lot more memorable.


I always see people in uni reading that site, I think it's so popular because most of what it states is completely true.

Sour apple mix and straight vodka strained over ice

Not sure if you have Jolly Rancher candy over there, if you do it tastes just like the green apple one.

The diminishing diva thread worries me a little bit because I feel certain people think if they just work out really hard all this weight wil magically drop off or if they starve themselves but eat the wrong food they will lose weight too. That's just a recipe for diasaster in my opinion.

My eating today has been really good I think

Breakfast: Small bowl of bran flakes
Glass of pure orange
6 large straberries and some natural yoghurt blended together

Lunch - Wholegrain bread with slice of chicken and lettuce followed by kiwi and banana. Few pumpkin seeds.

Snack - Apple

Dinner - 3 small potatoes, turkey, small bit of cooked ham, brocolli, peas, baby sweetcorn, mushrooms.

And I've been drinking water all day plus been out in the garden and did a workout dvd. If I get hungry later I won't deny myself. Our family all eat like this, my Mum and Dad started last year and my Mum lost 3 dress sizes, my Dad lost 4 stone and they both have kept that weight off. I also tried not eating much but I just lots of weight and put it back on again, I was also hungry all the time. It's about being sensible and making sure you're eating regularly, just not the bad stuff. I can't believe i'm a stone lighter than I was this time last year, that's quite a lot and I am a dress size smaller (almost two). I got some new trousers and the size below them was a bit neat but these ones are all pretty baggy.

We have jolly ranchers here but never tasted it. I like vodka and diet coke. I had 3 big glasses of white wine last night and was pretty sozzled, I fell asleep on the sofa.

I'm a firm believer in eat right/less and exercise to lose or keep the weight off. My mom is all about the South Beach diet at the moment, but to me it's just another fad. Eat too much of anything and you'll gain weight, but don't deprive yourself, either. As my one friend says, "You can't be afraid of food."


If I eat dinner at 6, I'm usually hungry again by 8 or 9, but if I'm being good I grab an apple and dab some peanut butter on it, or have half a peanut butter sandwich.

It's all about balance.

I don't eat peanut butter, it's not big here like it is in the US. I eat things quite plainly (I would never mix fruit with peanut butter ) but I am quite open to new things. Last year I had never eaten a kiwi or fresh pineapple I also eat a lot of new vegetables now like the baby sweetcorn and mangetout.
