Just when I thought I had it all figured out....

...I go and take this test. I've only lived over here in England for 6 years now, you'd like I could get some of these right! I've only ever heard one of these words used...

I got 4 of them right, but honestly I'd never actually heard any of them I was just guessing. I would suck at "lingo" if I came to visit...

I guessed and got a couple as well, but the only one I'd ever heard was 'mardy'. It's amazing---after all this time I'm still trying to figure stuff out.

On my first visit, I didn't read down far enough to see that you're a misplaced Yank. I live in the Middlelands for a bit as a child, the inspiration for the name of my site.

Anyway, I took the test and I scored five of five. Some I knew, and others were luck.

Lora and Heather---you guys did a great job! They really use some strange expressions over here...

Lora, how did you end up over here?

I got five right the first time around. I don't remember hearing any of these words before so I was going by their cognates in other languages.
