I was just reading the Cloud Atlas Phrasebook and thought...hey, we need a Brokeback Phrasebook!

I think I'll start a new topic for the phrasebook.

Maybe not a brokieism as such.

But I just saw a programme on Danish tv, and after it was finished there were trailers for upcoming programs.

Suddenly I hear The Wings!!!!   :o

From the BBM score!!!  :o

It accompanied the trailer for some random program, absolutely unrelated to BBM.

It was totally unexpected, and almost brought tears to my eyes.

I've been starting my year-end correspondences with those who I only correspond with annually. Before writing a long email, I asked one of them to get back to me and "say if you're there." I had to fight the urge to write "your there"!

 :laugh:  Probably wouldn't make the greatest impression, but I can understand the urge.

The other day on Facebook, I wrote "hunh." It was in response to a Brokie, so I felt compelled to use that spelling, but I thought, if a non-Brokie sees it, they'll think I misspelled it.

I used a new Brokeism this morning. It was too cold to walk around the house barefoot and I have a cozy pair of velour mules that I like to wear but they went missing. Wandering around looking for them I heard myself mutter "dumb ass mules".  :laugh:

Kind of a stretch, but a friend of mine who is British asked me where he and I should "muster" before we go into a meeting together, so I replied that we should muster in the parking lot and ketchup before we go into the meeting.  8)
