    It's always good to see another Northerner! So you work local then?

    And I didn't realise it was linked from that ;)

    Depends on the handset I suppose. I'm sure theres about 10 people at least in the desire forum from Leeds. There are many UK users here. Probably the biggest portion of desire users here are from the UK, there are far fewer from US or AUS. Quite a few mainland Europeans too.

    Yeah thats probably one of the things with places like that. Brighton looks cool but that would put me off (and the lack of sand).

    When I go abroad I specifically go to places that aren't full of Drunken Brits. They give us a bad name and think we're all like that. Shame really.

    Geordie: Ah wes pelatick.
    English: I enjoyed myself.

    Geordie: Ah scoredwithabord.
    English: I made the acquaintance of a young woman.

    Geordie: Howay doon to the Chinese, pet.
    English: Would you care to dine with me?

    Geordie: Ootside! Yeandme!
    English: Let us settle this matter in a civilised manner. Man to man like gentlemen.

    Geordie: Gissies tetties and bagies.
    English: I wish to order pork, potatoes and a little turnip, please.

    Geordie: Worbairn's hacky mucky.
    English: The baby needs a wash.

    And the most famous of all ...
    Wey Aye Pet .. Translates to .. Of course my Dear.
