Lovely

"Lovely"は、実はあまりラブリーな意味で使われない。
可愛い、美しい位は、なんとなく意味が近いので分かるけど、大概は、"それで結構"の意味で使われる。
例えば、電話などで住所や電話番号を聞かれて答えると"Lovely, thank you"と返事が返ってくる。
最初は、「はぁ?」っていう感じだった。

ネイティブの人にとっては、"Lovely"は非常に便利な言葉のようだ。
私は、こっ恥ずかしくて使えないが、使いこなすとカッコいい言葉の一つだ。
でも、あまり連発すると、さすがにゲイみたいなので、TVでも"Lovely"を連発する医者のコメディーをやっていた。

ところで、古いところでは、60年代のアメリカテレビドラマ「奥様は魔女」で、面白いシーンになると観客の笑い声が聞こえるのを覚えていらっしゃるだろうか?
あの笑い声は"Canned Laughter(缶詰の笑い)"と言われている。

旅行でイギリスに来ることがあったら、サービスのお礼に、
Lovely, thanks a lot!
を。

Curdently it appears like BlogEngine is the top blogging platform out there right now. (from what I've read) Is that what you're using on your blog?

Hey! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing a few months of hard work due to no backup. Do you hav any methods to stop hackers?

I almost never comment, but after looking at a great deal of comments here Lovely: Poohotosama's Joke Diary. I do have a feww questions for you if you do not mind. Is iit simply me or does it seem like some of these responses come across as if they are written by brain ead individuals? :-P And, if you are writing on additional online social sites, I would like to keep up with anything new you have to post. Could you make a list of the complete urls of your social community sits like yoyr Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
