Yeah....I was wondering what "MONO" was too (I live in the UK)
I think it's what we call "Glandular Fever" over here?

On another translation/missinterpritation slant....I think that skirt is "Cute"...in the Uk that means nice in a sweet way....In the US does cute mean "a little dumb"?

tiddle poop (which means "Bye bye")

No, "cute" most certainly does not mean "a little dumb."  It means something like adorable/pretty unless you say it sarcastically:  "Oh, that was reeeeeal cute, asshole."  Like that.  And "mono" is short for mononucleosis, which comes with fever, incredibly sore throat, and other flu-like symptoms.  I've never had it, but I hear that's how it is.

Ha....I just remembered "Pants"...sorry to hijack the post...but my friend Jaime in Wisconson, the other night she said "I'm sitting here with no pants on."......Aaaaargh NO!!! thats one step too close to cybersex for us Brits!!!!

Pants in the Uk (as you prob' all know) means underwear/knickers. We wear trousers.

Yeah, there're all kinds of miscommunication issues between American English and English found in other countries!  It's kind of funny to me.  I'd be interested to see a thread that compared English across different countries.  Just so we aren't all commiting faux pas like that "no pants" thing.  Whoops!  Smiley

Ahh, I get it. I love the whole...Messed up English thing. Like, we say we all speak the same language, but the slang is SO different! And even the meanings of some proper words is slightly off...I love it Cheesy
Glandular Fever is something that I recognise, that's what we call it too..I wonder why we don't all call it the same thing...?

cute, skirt... as for the mono, I wish you better!  One of my brothers had it and basically spent a whole year at home, it's horrible.  As well as above symptoms mentioned, it includes major persistant fatigue.

Yeah, it sucks - but it's not always that bad.  I had it too, but I was just REALLY tired, ALL the time, for 2 or 3 months, and only found out that that's what it was afterwards (from a bloodtest).  So, it sucked, but it wasn't as awful as it could have been.
