Elizabeth Taylor's Daughter
Posted 10 December 2008 - 07:38 PM
Cemal speaks only ten words of English – “Ladies and Gentlemen”, “Dangerous”, “I love You”, “My name is . . .”, so conversation involved our extremely limited Turkish especially about six years ago (it’s now only very limited!). I was always concerned that should he ever manage to utilise his entire English vocabulary, the sentence could emerge as, “Ladies, I love you and my name is dangerous gentlemen.”
Even back in 2002 I was confident enough to mention that this particular weekend was our Queen Elizabeth's Golden Jubilee celebrations. Some fifteen minutes later, the conversation, obviously in Turkish, developed like this:
Cemal: “Did you know Elizabeth Taylor’s daughter is dead?”
Me: (Quickly trying to recall who is - or was - Elizabeth Taylor’s daughter)
“Er, no. Recently?”
Cemal: “Oh no. A few years ago.”
Me: “Oh really?”
Cemal: “Yes, in a car accident. In a road tunnel. In Paris.”

I suppose that's the reason why some people don't like automated search engines like Google.

I think the world needs to get rid of all presidents and priministers then we would have a much happier world!!
Who would we moan about then?
Well Belgium seem to have managed without a government for nearly a year.
Have you seen how 'happy' they look?

But what I am to do about Mrs Fil's attempts to join in with the royal wedding by getting the children to make hats to wear?
Make yourself a hat and join in with the fun.
