Default WTF

I just got a e-mail =
"Hello Roco-UK,
We at Van's B.S. Board! would like to wish you a happy birthday today!"

well, I hold my hands up to being a past member , hell bent on rape and pillage at the time , ( now older and wiser ) and yes I still look in on those dark lonely evenings , good to see some old young looking faces still posting ,

Roco_uk ? yes I admit I am a UK Brit , but lost my pasword to the forum ,
but thanks for the happy birthday ,now just short of the zimmer frame ,

Best regards
Roco .UK

Ich muss dich enttäuschen: Zwar lebt SX zur Zeit in Deutschland, aber erst seit ein paar Monaten. Noch hat sie keine Zeit gehabt, deutsch zu lernen.

Well, a "Zimmer frame" is the British term for a walking frame. "Was zum Teufel" means "what the devil" and is the nearest German equivalent to WTF, which is the title of this thread; and I just pointed out that SX hasn't had time to learn any German yet.

Anything else?

late looking in , but good to see Rew - Boss is around
like others ,I only spent time in Germany, ( Swabia )
nobody was interested in me trying desperatly to speak Germam .
speak English was all I got ,apart from the Frau in the canteen . I had the ciggeretts but no light ,after my numours attemps in german in my break time ,she came close to getting strangled ( LOL )
I fell back on the traditional English method , Shout loudly and slowly .
thanks to M.S translation.and mime , ( I can still do a good pig inpersonation )
"I must disappoint you: Although live SX at the time in Germany, but only for a few months. Still, she has had no time to learn German"

*thinks * I might forget my passed I.D . and sign in and register again,
you folk seem to be having fun , thats if you got room for a Brit,

wellllll....is "unregistered" a real person? And, if so, does he/she get a user name? one reason I said I needed translation is because unregistered's posts sound like some sort of robotic translation to English gone bad

No, this is the Lurker's Lounge, so anyone can post without having to log in. He used to be a member here, but he's forgotten his password, so he's posting anonymously. And he's answering our questions, so unless this is the world's first spambot to pass the Turing test, he's legit.

Thanks Racenut , I would never remembered my pass word ,
the Lurker-WTF-Roco-UK is back on ,
( I am now keeping a little black book on Pass words ,)
5 years on , and what a hectic 5 years , some good, most not so ,
but a great learning curve ,anyway great to be back ,
just a bit about me , and my locale ,
Richmond borough , London, UK
host to the 2012 Olympic games ,
sounds fun , but it has it's downside, for 3 days I will be unable to use my car , or visit my daughter, or travell anywhere, apart from on foot or bicycle, but what the heck is 3 days in a life time .
Me ? , well managed to retire early to enjoy the Golden Years ,
unfortunatly the recession made Gold in short supply ,
but as the saying goes , "you cut your cloth to suit your pocket "
at the moment my ass is hanging out of my levi's ,
but still enjoying life ,just needed to shift down a gear,
today I found I got Newts in my garden pond ,
closest I can get to gators ( LOL ),
well I have said Hello again ,doubt if I will be posting that much ,
but will pass on any UK news I think you might find interesting ,

Best Regards
Roco
edit to add
P.S ,I got some catching up to do ,
