    This French is not so good, really but I will give it a try.

    I am doing ok. I am at home. And you? ( I assume this is a question)
    I am happy I'll be workign with you tomorrow. And you?
    I know I know, see you tomorrow.

    you're welcome but no ofense, I don't need any test. This forum is about exchanging ideas and helping other people. So, try to find other words to ask for help.

    Sandra already translated everything all right. congrats! I just wanted to agree with her and say that the first block of sentences posted were written in a very alien and strange French... "dans moi maisoin" doesn't mean anything in French, the right expression would be "chez moi"

    Let me take advantage of this thread to ask you for your help with a very small translation. I would like to understand the meaning of the sentence:

    "Rien foutre ça creve"

    Does it have any meaning? I googled, i searched, i almost understand the meaning of the words, but not the sentence.

    Also i would like to know if it might be a famous quote from a song or book/story, or even someone famous...

    Thank You Very Much!

    Default Rien foutre, ça crève

    (ne) rien foutre, ça crève
    = rather low-class language
    meaning :
    doing nothing is exhausting / having nothing to do makes you suffer / doing absolutely nothing hurts...
    you are in no position to act as you like, eg. you are workless.

    as far as I know this is not a famous citation or anything.
