:lol: :lol: I don't sleep in pyjamas, I have none of those in my shelves! What's the use of clothes when you're sleeping, you already have to wear some while you're not in bed? :lol:

The person after me thought of Colin Firth in Bridget Jones' diary when they wrote about these pyjamas.

No, because I have never watched Bridget Jones' diary.


The person after me is drinking coffee right now.
Please correct my mistakes. I'd really appreciate it ❤

Yes, I just ended my end of lunch cup of coffee with milk and a few nuts. Thanks, lunch was tasty, brocoli and an apple :D Now I'll go to the shop and buy 2 apple trees, 2 pear trees to plant in the garden, as in France we say "A la sainte Catherine tout bois prend racine" (means when you plant trees in November - the 25th of November, to be more precise - they'll put on roots and grow up and get healthy).

The person after me also wishes to plant trees but hasn't yet chosen which kind.

The person after me will go and deliverplace flowers on someone's grave today.

I'd like to plant flowering dogwoods (Cornus florida), but they never seem to do well up here.

The person after me is tired of raking leaves.

Proper Disney movies? Maybe. Maybe I never watch one again.

But I meant to say that I saw/have seen some movies in certain definite points of time in the past. :hmm:

Every movie is seen "in a certain definite point of time". But if the overarching time period during which these viewings take place isn't specified, the assumption is that it continues up to the present day. E.g.: "I actually saw very few proper Disney movies when I was a child/in college/during my years abroad/etc."--those all sound fine. But since no time period was specified or implied in this instance (TheStrayCat was just talking about movies in general), it sounds jarring to use the simple past in your reply.

Other examples:

"I haven't eaten pastel de nata" [ever in my life]
"I didn't eat pastel de nata" [for breakfast/when I was visiting Portugal/before I learned I was lactose intolerant/etc.]

"I've never fallen in love" [ever, with anyone]
"I never fell in love" [in grammar school/with my former spouse/when I was still dating men/etc.]

Google gives me results when I search "Rudolf the reindeer", but in my experience, "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" is much more common. It's also the form used in the original story.

No need to apologize. The red nose is Rudolph's thing, so if you wanted the image of a generic reindeer, it would've been best to just say "a reindeer".

I don't have to rake leaves, so nyah nyah nyah! :twisted:

The person after me visited a bakery recently and will tell us what they bought.

No, I think the ones I have are new. Relatively.

The person after me only manages to make the speech recognizer to work if they imitate a British accent.

I'm sure one of the persons after me can unlock one of the Portuguese games in the subforum.
