Karen's notes: These are from our first night on the boat. Notice that there is a theme here of means of transportation, but no boat. I was lying there, waiting to see if he would reference the boat. I think STM was purposefully messing me about.

"bonne chance" = good luck, french
"choo-choo" = train, kiddie-speak (for the benefit of our non-native-English speaking readers)

  1. chou chou is also a french term for a favourite person (though chou actually means cabbage)

  2. Chou chou makes more sense. Rather sweet!

  3. "Chou" is pronounced like "shoe" though. And he definitely made a ch not sh sound.

  5. Karen, I think you're developing some Brit-speak saying "messing me about" =P

  6. I noticed that too, Karen, I always hear your voice as having a Boston (Mass.) accent!

  7. Actually, in Boston, I think "messing me about" would be rather risque!

  8. The way he says "stare at my arse"... classic.

  9. The cycling comment reminds me of pretty much every triathlete I know. :-D

  10. First German, and now French! STM is getting all international on us!

    I don't know what to make of the bicycling comment, though!

  11. Does anyone think it sounds like he's saying 'sight-seeing' rather than 'cycling'? Do Brits use that term? It would be quite funny, actually...he wants his 'arse' to be one of the sights!

    ReplyDelete
  12. Wow, I re-listened, and it DOES sound like sight seeing...

    ReplyDelete
  13. Yes, it does sound like "sight seeing," there is a definate "t" sound in there. More like "sight seen" though.

  15. "I like cycling, because I want everybody to stare at my arse. Mmm-hmm."

    Now I know why so many cycle...

  16. Ah, mon petit choo-choo.... (Toot TOOOT!) 7@=Q

  17. if STM starts singing "Voulez vous couchez avec moi, se soir? gitche gitche ya ya ya" I would probably buy a feathered boa for the him and bust out laughing.

  18. I think this quote should be sold on all kinds of cycling paraphernalia. I LOVE it!

  19. About "Choo-Choo" : kids use the same sound in French to describe a train (we just spell it "tchou-tchou")... Would it be likely that Adam knows that?

    ReplyDelete
  20. Indeed, why else would anyone ride a bicycle?

  21. Well, I obviously can't account for the entire country, but at least in my little part of the U.S., we use "choo-choo" in reference to trains, too! Particularly as small children or when talking to small children. My brother was all for dump trucks, but my grandpa's a huge fan of choo-choo's! He used to collect model trains. :D

  22. Really want to have "I like cycling, because I want everybody to stare at my arse. Mmm-hmm." as T-shirt or even shorts.

    I have a brother who just needs to have that kind of shorts for christmas. He does mountain biking orienteering which is the craziest sport in the world, but now I know why he does it.
