silly question, but can any Brits help me out?

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Hi, I was just looking for a translation of this email from my new British friend:

"well tired jersey girl"

Does that mean he's really tired? I'm not up on all the slang, lol.

Yes it does. You'd say 'I'm real tired' I guess? Us brits say I'm well tired, or well happy, well moody..

Thanks! I didn't want to look like an idiot and ask him, lol. Even though he certainly commented enough about the way I talk what with the Jersey Girl thing!

You guys are cracking me up! I have a feeling I'll be learning a lot of new British slang so I may need you guys to translate from English to English again in the future!!!

I love learning something new like this!

Exactly LOL LOL. Apparently a snicket is kind of a windy (not as in the wind blowing) little footpath and a Ginnal is like a short straight walkway thing LOL. Has anyone heard of Teasy (sorry for Hijacking your your thread pixie) LOL
