Interesting how we have come to use that term in a generic sense.

It's like asking for a Coke instead of a soda... which I do.

Brand names tend to do that eventually, and Photoshop is definitely the leading image editing program.

Here's a confession. When I hear "Hey, Jude" in my mind, I hear the Elvis Presley version.

When I first became a Beatles fan, my favourite Beatle was.....

But then I saw the light and found out who my real favourite Beatle was

Here's a few:

I have a ridiculous dislike for Family Guy and The Big Bang Theory a-hard-days-night-paul-10

I can play piano...badly... well, I'm pretty mediocre.

I would have studied music past my first year in secondary school but I couldn't draw a treble clef- that is the sole reason. I truly am a horrendous artist a-hard-days-night-paul-7

I wear backpacks instead of using handbags because I find handbags a major pain and I feel like I'm going to leave it somewhere/someone will nick it off me. I also feel like an adventurer when I wear a rucksack ahdn_george_08

I get overwhelmingly sad when I crush a snail by accident- I mean it's not the little fella's fault he's so slow, it's just me being an idiot and not looking at the ground when I'm walking.

I also hate seeing old degraded/damaged black and white/silent films- even if they're pieces of sh*t I just hate the idea in 30 years time they won't be viewable anymore. Also the idea that 70% of silent films made in America are lost dampens my spirits. ahdn_paul_02

Yeah, I'm weird...

I have a confession. If I ever switched bodies with one of the forum members, I would probably read all their PMs. So if you wanna switch bodies with a forum member, you shouldn't pick me unless you want all your PMs read by me!

^ I hardly ever get PMs, I imagine I am the "least social" of any of the Biblers- which is quite sad.

So yeah, don't bother changing lives with me- I'm no fun. 

*waits for sympathy PMs*

 

Edit: Feck sake the second I posted that I got a PM, that is a one in a million chance!

Quoth @Funny Paper 
Note to self: I shall add "biscuit tin" to my list of Britishisms that are slightly "off" from their American counterparts (here it would be cookie jar) -- like "boot" (for car trunk), "flat" (for apartment), "chips" (for fries), "zebra crossing" (for crosswalk), and many more...

HAHA!!!! I'm not the only one who collects Britishisms!!!!! I feel so much less lonely now. a-hard-days-night-ringo-10

Many more! 

Lift: elevator. Mac: raincoat. Wellingtons (wellies): rain boots. Pressmen: reporters. Washing-up bowl: sink. Litter/rubbish bin: trash/garbage can. Carrier bags: shopping bags. And the list goes on, but I'm waaaaaaaaaaay off-topic. (Note: Some of these may be regional only.)

stay-on-topic

Father McKenzie, I have a confession to make.

When I go to bed, I go inside my head and dream stories. Like day-dreaming, only at night. Right now, I'm on a sort of fairy-tale romance between a prince and a serving-maid, and *stuff* (see a particular smiley which I take pains to NEVER use) happens, and it might make a good screenplay, if I could be bothered, but by day, I don't like that sort of thing at ALL (everything's different when you're in that nice little state halfway between dreaming and awake that Paul's so fond of), and plus, it's sort of private. I don't talk about it usually (except on the BB confessions thread.) a-hard-days-night-george-9 

Aaaaaagh... that sentence was sooooo looooong...... I must be PWT. a-hard-days-night-george-10 

Also, I think Harry Potter, while good, is WAY overrated. I prefer Septimus Heap, if one is to talk about wizards. (Although most of you probably have no idea who Septimus Heap is.) 

Also again, I not-so-secretly harbour a burning desire to meet the Beatles for real. (Pun intended) 

And finally, nobody in my family knows I'm on the Beatles Bible forum every spare minute I have, and I've gotten into soo much hot water lately being on the forum when I was supposed to be doing other things (like sleeping). Like now.  a-hard-days-night-ringo-14

So yep, I been a naughty girl! a-hard-days-night-john-1

It verges from the sublime to the ridiculote

Who calls Wellingtons (wellies) "rain boots"? I've never heard that. Say that in Scotland and you'd probably get hit on the head by one.

Us 'Mericans do. Well, I call 'em wellies now. But everyone else I know calls them rain boots, and I'm forever explaining that Wellingtons is British for rain boots. I've Anglicised my speech and spelling. (I confess...) 

Okay,

@Beatlebug, having spent my whole life in the UK, I have never heard anyone call a sink a washing-up bowl.

These are washing-up bowls:

They are used in sinks like this:

On a more serious (and on-topic) note, don't spend so much time on here that your parents ban you from coming here. We wouldn't want to lose you.

Father McKenzie, I have a confession to make. 

  • I am double-posting. 
  • I have sinned. 

(Okay, now we're getting to the point:)

  • I have a great tendency to be a grammar-Nazi.

When I'm at friendly places like the BB forum, I don't say anything. But I can't help but notice. So to all of you reading this: If your sentence is ungrammatical, Silly Girl is watching you! a-hard-days-night-john-3
