    A Request To All English Members of Forum Garden.

    Citizeness Oscar informed me in an earlier thread she duplicated that: "sorry JJ but many don't look at your threads."

    Even so I'm holding thumbs that maybe one or two or three English members will read this and maybe offer me some assistance.

    The novel I am currently working on is set in a village outside London. It is a contemporary story with the two main characters, male & female, aged twenty five. They live at home and their families are upper middle class and they work & spend a lot of the time in London.

    What I need to know is this:

    a) What slang words do young English men and women of this age use today?

    b) What do they do for fun in their spare time?

    c) If they have a car, what size, make and model will it be?

    d) Any other information that may help me.

    I promise to give anyone who helps me a signed copy of the novel if and when it is published.

    Feel free to PM me if you don't want to be counted among those who do "look at my threads."

    Thanx so much.

    To clarify.... I did not duplicate your thread.

    I was Informed by an old member here that a friend In our circle had died.

    I started a new thread just In case some members who knew Carol had not looked In your thread.

    If your looking for a common English slang word.... try ' Wanker'

    I look at your threads JJ. I may not have anything to say in them but I enjoy your quirkiness, good luck with the novel.

    I'm not sure how anybody can know who does or does not read another's thread, unless of course they sit on that thread with the bottom of the page visible where it informs readers who is reading that thread at that time. This would have to be a 24/7 occupation so I'm not sure when the observer would get any sleep ! tut !

    I had the same reaction as you to what oscar said, jj, but I find her to be a lot of fun, so I didn't want to bring it up. Maybe I should have, sorry (in the nicest way of course!).

    Tosser.... That's another English slang word.

    But when In polite company I prefer Bellend.

    I think we all know those words, oscar. I think he wants to know not the 'classics', but what is current right now.
