Knackered ... yes, you have been in England a while now! Some of those words will remain in your active vocabulary for years, no matter what country you choose to live in! Cheers is another one... And many expressions for what sort of variety of rain is falling ....

I have a suspicion it's his son, Per Forsberg, Jr. And yes, Kat's been in England too long... She mentions "trousers" and doesn't mind reading the schedule [probably pronounced shedule] of "forthcoming events"....

Per Forsberg is a visiting student from Sweden. He's staying in Oxford till sometime in spring and has become an OUOC member.

Yep, I've definitely picked up some British terminology. Some words I like, others I don't (such as trousers) but I use them anyway because this way Brits understand me :)

Entered my splits. Don't have time to enter comments for them, but it's relatively obvious where I made mistakes (although thankfully nothing as obvious as a 15-minute split...)
