In lands I never saw -- they say
Immortal Alps look down --
Whose bonnets touch the firmament --
Whose sandals touch the town --

Meek at whose everlasting feet
A myriad daisy play --
Which, Sir, are you and which am I
Upon an August day?

    I decided to put this avatar because West Ham is my favorite club, I started to support them while I was a young boy.

    @Rema , meet @mr_trotter - I think you might have something in common!
  • PaulettePaulette Posts: 35,654 mod
    @mr_trotter I don't know so much of socker but I think West Ham is a socker team of London and you live in Serbia so you must be a really fan of it. Do you follow the team via TV?
  • mr_trottermr_trotter Posts: 4
    @NatashaT I`m glad that we support West Ham and we will have something to discuss :)
    @Paulette Yes, you are right, unfortunately I watch them only on TV, but who knows maybe I will have a chance to watch them in London.

    @mr_trott so to improve your English is a very good idea because then you can really support your team in their own language.

    I have chosen Xanthippe since I am rather sarcastic by nature. ;)

    I found out it @NatashaT by a pure coincidence :D
    We were at TGIF when I suddenly spotted the word- trotter amongst the top ten week's leaders(but didn't now anything about the avatar and other stuff because @Lynne just copied and pasted the list in the Discord's common chat) and asked her does it have some specific meaning apart from the last name which is used in England.
    She explained me the meaning of the word and told me to look at the Week's Leaderboard.
    OMG I thought when I saw it, either someone hacked my account or I lost my mind by unconsciously creating an alt account :D
    It was a real relief when I discoverd that it is not me :D
    Anyway, nice to meet you @mr_trotter , glad to hear that here is another West Ham supporter and hope that you will find the network interesting and useful for learning the language as well :)
    BTW. @Paulette , I think that big majority of people all around the world preffer calling it football to soccer(mainly in Amerika).

    My choice of the avatar picture was inspired by my favourite British comedian - the fool, the round, empty-headed Mank, buffoon, moron Karl Pilkington. I will never get enough of him. :)

    Why did you choose to support West Ham? Is it because of where you live, or is there another reason for liking that team in particular?

    @Vok do you also look like Karl Pilkington both your thoughts and your outside appearance? ;)

    My avatar which is a sea view from Ayvalık in Turkey. Ayvalık is the most beautiful city .There is a sea side . Ideal for summer holiday. Since I was a child , ı went to every summer holiday with my family. We had a home in there. I go to Ayvalık still every summer.

    No, I don't even remotely resemble him both in mental and physical characteristics. I wish I had his Mancunian accent though. Sometimes when I'm alone at home and no one can see me I try emulating his accent, albeit not very successfully. :)

    I have never heard about this British comedian, It seems he is a bit sad? But are not they the best clowns? :):D;)
  • MichouxeMichouxe Posts: 12,431 ✭✭✭✭✭
    @ipek45 :)
    I see that you also have your avatar, It seems a nice place to go on holiday, but my husband doesn't want to go abroad. Too bad! :s

  • VokVok Posts: 2,581 ✭✭✭✭
    @Michouxe
    What British comedian do you fancy watching then? Have you heard of Ricky Gervais? Sorry for the digression from the main topic. I hope I would not be reproached by moderators for it.
  • MichouxeMichouxe Posts: 12,431 ✭✭✭✭✭
    I wouldn't immediately which comedian I know, haha !!!! I know Benny Hill....? :D
    Don't worry, your avatar is funny! ;)

    I find Ricky Gervais very funny indeed. He is one of my favourite comedians, and I enjoy watching his work.

    @GemmaRowlands He's hilarious, isn't he? I find some of his stand-up jokes a bit offensive, though. BTW, have you watched "The Office"? It is absolutely cringeworthy :D

    Yes I have seen it, and I know exactly what you mean. It is cringeworthy, but at the same time I do really enjoy it and find it funny.
