No, really! Pictionary is still on!

Sorry, all. I've been away from my computer since Friday morning. First I have a quick story to share, and then it's back to Pictionary. I SWEAR.

M and I were watching Jamie’s School Lunch Project last night on TLC. Have you seen this show? Jamie Oliver, a.k.a. The Naked Chef, sets out on a mission to make London’s school lunches more delicious and nutritious. Jamie is British, and since my husband once lived in London he thought I needed a translator during the show.

Jamie Oliver: All these children eat for lunch, five days a week, is pizza and chips!

M: ‘Chips’ are French fries.

Liz: (smiles) I know, thanks.

Jamie Oliver: (upon spotting some of the lunch ladies smoking) I can’t believe it! If we had cooks smokin’ fags in my restaurant, they’d be sacked. We don’t allow that.

M: ‘Fags’ are cigarettes.

Liz: I know.

M: And when someone gets ‘sacked’, it means they’re fired.

Liz: You know, I may not have lived there, but I have been to London. And I’ve even read books that take place there!

M: I just wanted to make sure you understood everything he was saying.

Liz: (sighs tiredly)

Jamie Oliver: I mean, look at this food. It’s complete rubbish!

M: ‘Rubbish’ is trash.


So bloody hell, let's get on with the game before I get really cheesed off.

Oops, are we doing one word? If so, my new guess is: mom/mother.

Heh heh... no, it's not me. But there is a striking resemblance!

Frema-- have you assured Luke that in the event of a divorce you'd never want his wagon wheel, Roy Rogers, garage sale coffee table?

I just emailed my boss to see if she's willing to change my job title.

Blogger verniciousknids said...

Bookvixen would look cool on business cards! BTW I enjoyed your translation of Brit English :D And my last guess before bed is "Chick-lit"

Now would be an awesome time for me to tell you how horrible I am at pictionary. Like really f-ing awful. But you know, get on with it.

Oh yeah, it's a noun.

Bearette, I almost did the same thing. I was about to guess silence and then went back to look. lol

It really looks like "quiet in the stacks." Blog?

If you won again, I'm going to have to kill you. :)

7:52 PM  
Blogger Liz said...

Bearette didn't win, but [sing-songy voice] some-one-else-did!

(someone who forgot that 'silence' is a noun)

(whoops, did I give away who the winner is?)

(there is also someone else who guessed 'silence' after the person who originally guessed it retracted her guess, so I think we may have two winners)

Blogger Liz said...

Winners shall be crowned tomorrow.

How shall I title ye, winners? Empress? Mistress of the Universe? POTUS??

7:59 PM  
Blogger Bearette24 said...

hee...potus ;)

congrats, suzy and elsa!

Blogger Lisa said...

I left work before the final clue was posted! Not that I necessarily would have guessed silence. Probably would have said "nosepicker."
