    Default To Sir, With Love

    Ok, I just gave myself the joes to see To Sir, With Love. Lots of Cockney rhyming, but more importantly, great characters and Lulu belting out the title song so sweetly that it makes me cry.

    Brad Pitt's character in Snatch was speaking "Pikey" which is spoken by travellers/gypsies. In this instance they were Irish "pikeys" and pretty much no-one understands what they say!

    A marvellous movie indeed...
    did you notice that Patricia Routledge (Mrs. Bucket/Bouquet) starred in it?
    I recognized her by her voice!

    Typos come to light sooner or later...I had never noticed it. I meant to say "gave myself the jones", which is a phrase I don't even use in real life and yet I typed it out for the whole ESTO world to see...oh well. To have a "jones" to do something just means that you want to do something...similar to "ganas" in Spanish, actually, now that I think of how I would translate it; I'm not sure they're connected, but I wouldn't be surprised if they were.

    Oops. I didn't know the difference anyway! Well, to have a "jones" is a new one on me. This forum is teaching me humility!

    Thanks Scott!

    In the brief time between responses, I did a bit of research and it turns out that the word "jones" in this context originated in terms of d*** addiction...not that I am necessarily familiar with that in any way. There was a movie from 1997 and a song from 1972 named "Love Jones", Cheech and Chong parodied the song with "Basketball Jones", and D'Angelo had a song called "Jonz in my Bonz" on his 1995 album "Brown Sugar". That is the extent of my familiarity with the term, to give you a better perspective.

    Thanks for taking the time to enlighten me Scott! At least the next time I see or hear it I won't be scratching my head!
