Re: Grammar Time!

I understood that as more of a mark to market situation. Anyway, it matters not, because even if I speak the right sentence, nobody understands my accent! Except for my boyfriend - so I speak mynorsk and he translates to bokmål.

Re: Grammar Time!

I asked because my urban translation of “selge noe billigere enn det kostet” as “sell something cheaper” was corrected to “more cheaply”. Sounds well to me, no.

Re: Grammar Time!

That's a genuine question. BTW, I reached the level in my Norwegian course, where I make grammar errors translating to English. Buffer overflow :-(

Re: Stop the doggists' madness.

You weren't the first actually. Slow feeder bowls work like that. I used them for one of my cats who ate voraciously - and then vomited everything. https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0376/6478/4520/products/100000022294-buddy-and-belle-slow-feeder-bowl-intermediate-navy-9_870caea9-5d14-407a-8d1c-d744...

Re: Grammar Time!

Is it correct to say "travel cheaper"? Or should it be "travel more cheaply"? Or is it too anal retentive? Anally retentive?

Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II
God Save King Charles III from the new Puritans of the left.
I like British royals, and I'm strictly against the monarchy. I think that's the right attitude which helps to keep things in balance.

Re: Stupid question of the day

Can you please provide with a higher-resolution backie please? A few things here are not clear to me, e.g. I cannot see your backie stick. Thank you.
The stick was taking the photo! :)

Re: Stupid question of the day

I thought it was because in EE everyone lives with their farm animals in the house. I'm not judging. In fact I approve. Indeed, am even jealous.
