irish 11 Sep 2006 / #1Hi all. I just wanted to say how much I enjoy this forum even though Im one of those annoying people who is just lurking naughtily in the background reading posts and doing none of the work that makes them so entertaining.Krysia and Bolo's online flirtation has had me giggling on more than one occassion. Horrible cowardly people like Eddien who use this forum to spew vile bigotry have had me screaming at the keyboard!! I am an Irish woman who has had the pleasure of making friends with a few Poles now living here and find them a welcome addition to this country. The ones I know are hardworking, good fun and have a wicked sense of humour and fit well in to Irish life. As for the language!! What can I say? Either my brain has frazzled from the sometimes excessive amounts of vodka Ive been indulging in or the Polish language is a nightmare of endless consonants and tongue-twisting vowels! Either way my feeble attempts at pronunciation of the few words I do know are a source of hearty amusement for my friends who take great pleasure in hearing me make the least attempt to use the language. So cheers to all of you who post here and thanks for giving me a place to skive off to when I should be working!!
