Dear Friends, Fellow Explorers, Travellers, Curious Cats & Culture Vultures like meself,

to buy the yat...fancy boat...so that we can go sailing on the glorious sea.
Ketch is a good word, you don't think?
On land, you can:
On the sea, you can:
Strict warning though! You don't want to:
Or else, you gon:
Think of all them pirates and parasites that gon be interested in you' yah...fancy boat!!!
Hmmm...oh! Hey! I can paint it to look like a big-big ocean wave.
Imagination is a fantastical thing, eh? With it, you don't feel no boredome at home, you can roam from here to Rome in you' magical mind. Look what I find...a mosquito net that look like sea foam.
Time to hop out and take a li'l walk, me dears.
Take care and dream away about wonderful places and things and words, neena xx.

My dear, dear fellow Travelling Friends in this vast ocean of madness we call world and humanity,
Here me is, still dreaming of owning me own yatch yahth yacth yacht...schuuups...maybe the day I learn to spell that bleddy word, I gon achieve me goal.
When I get me own ya...fancy boat...I ain't gon drop me waste into the sea though!!
I gon have a special loo or two that pasturise everything. Then, when it good and clean, only then I gon drop it into the water. When y'all see fat, happy fish, you gon know the cause.
What you mean, what I gon do whole day on me ya...fancy boat?
I gon do everything I do on land.
Sew. Doodle. Think. Eat...I gon cook food that don't come in plastic and wrappers and cardboard packages. My mother gon be with me...so I gon create a special garden for she to spend happy hours in. I gon sleep, listen to music, talk on the Internet. I gon write. And stare at the ocean.
Staring at the ocean can drive you crazy with gladness though.
You can only stare for a few minutes, then you got to look away. The light of the rising and setting sun, the mid-morning twinkle, the light of the moon, shedding truth about beauty, on the dark sea, can do things to you' heart and mind that make you want to jump up and down with joy.
Imagine how you gon look to them coast-guards passing by.
Why I talking so much about the ocean today?
Apart from the fact that the ocean is me, and me is the sea and I miss it...what with me being inland in Florider with Ma...today is World Meteorological Day. Y'know, the day when we recognise that keeping the sea alive is very important to the whole of We.
Speaking of Ma, I better go and cook lunch. (I getting hungry).
Ciao for now, oodles of lurve, neena xx
P.S. Y'all please come and visit me on me ya...fancy boat.

My dear Friends, Travellers, Visitors, Passersby, Culture Vultures, Linguists,
The other day, I stub me toe so hard, I see stars, the universe sing tweet-tweet and go 'round in circles.
But not to worry, I ain't voylent. I didn't wish a million trumplings on nobody.
I only holler straight out loud: "Aiyeeee Gospodgee!!!"
Forgive the spelling, I ain't know it, but not to worry, I ain't in the habit of cussing like Lucille the tantaria. A nice lady from Ukraine teach me. She say it mean, "Ohhhh my God!" For when you in pain or get a shock.
How me love strange words and expressions.
Peace. Love. Garlic. Small. Good. Big. Very good. Hello. How are you? Honey. I love you.
Strange words is like new fruit. They can make me tongue curl and rebel if they tart, or they tickle me taste buds if they 'specially sweet. I nibble a new one here, or chew long and slow like cow in a hot field. Burp and bite again.
I am so glad I don't think like them people in certain countries (I ain't naming names) that feel English is the only language worth speaking.
Good thing the whole world ain't arrogant about language. If you travel to other countries, you gon find not everybody will bad-mouth you for not knowing they language. In fact, you gon find people willing to teach you new phrases, different expressions.
I know this for sure in my own native land. People only too willing to teach you. (Careful, some o' them very mischievous, and would teach you to say things you' mother and father ain't gon be too proud to hear).
We's a very gregarious lot. Garrulous. It ain't matter where you go in my own native land, you gon find people willing to share they words. In other words, we love to gyaff.
How you respond to the gyaff and the hyperbole-stories that they gon full-up you' ears with, is up to you.
|YOU CAN SAY THIS.|
|OR YOU CAN QUIETLY WALK AWAY.|
Far as me concerned, not being able to travel don't stop me from discovering new words.
Leh we gyaff...let's gyaff. Whaz some of the favourite words and expressions in you' country?
Plenty lurve, neena xx
