    Oooooh! If anything can put me off Jamie Oliver (and there are many other reasons *) then his use of that word makes me growl!

    * e.g. The way he includes stuff in his recipes as if they are available at every corner-shop. The lad's a plank!

    I knew at the back of my mind that there was something worse than "like".
    It's just come to me.
    It's "lol"
    arrrggghh

    One of my budgies responds to that. If I ask him a question he answers (though, sadly, he does not always get the answer right*). Then I learned that if I finish a sentence on a rising note he assumes it is a question and answers.
    (* or maybe it's me who gets the question wrong.)

    If I ask my jack Russel what's she been up to in an accusing tone she starts to look guilty of something...

    For God's sake please don't watch the Australian version of "Nothing to Declare" because almost everyone on that programme does exactly that; especially the women!

    W discovered Naga curries a few years back. Pretty damn hot but much more flavourful than a phal or vindaloo.

    I was amused by a recipe for a naga curry which said, near the end, "taste it for hotness, and if not hot enough add a few scotch bonnet chillis..."

    "Yeah, no, I agree..." Don't even get me started on people saying "yeah,no..." at the beginning of every response. Listen out for it especially when young people are questioned. You'll end up really, like...erm..p****d off!

    The reason that Australian women use the rising inflection is because they are questioning the validity of their own comment. After all seconds later Bruce is bound to be saying "Why, what the bloody hell do you know Sheila?"

    At least the rising inflection is questioning the statement made by the person speaking it. This is open and inviting comment from other people and as thus sociable. Unfortunately most misogynists don't have this trait, so it's strange Australian men speak this way.
