Haha, this reminds me of my friend :)
She calls it duvet, though I've always known it as duna.
She's South African, and I've grown up in Australia.
I suppose, that's the difference.
She also calls rubbish bins, dust bins.
And traffic lights, robots.
The quirks that South African's put into the English language make me giggle, though I love them more each time I hear them.
phantasee commented on the word zeitgeist
The Zeitgeist documetaries are definitely awesome!
That's actually how I ended up finding this wonderful site; I was googling Zeitgeist because someone told me I could watch the documentaries online for free, but didn't know where to find them. I ended up clicking the wrong link and went to the Wordnik Zeitgeist page. Was a definite meant-to-be moment, as I fell in love with the odd conversations that I found in the oddest places on this site.
I ended up returning to google to find the documentaries, eventually I did, and funnily enough, the website was easy as "zeitgeistmovie.com"
phantasee commented on the word twilight
"I'd never given much thought to how I would die - though I'd had reason enough in the last few months - but even if I had, I would not have imagined it like this.
I stared without breathing across the long room, into the dark eyes of the hunter, and he looked pleasantly back at me. Surely it was a good way to die, in the place of someone else, someone I loved. Noble, even. That ought to count for something.
I knew that if I'd never gone to Forks, I wouldn't be facing death now. But, terrified as I was, I couldn't bring myself to regret the decision. When life offers you a dream so far beyond any of your expectations, it's not reasonable to grieve when it comes to an end.
The hunter smiled in a friendly way as he sauntered forward to kill me."
