I remember in the 80's when I started saying "Across the pond" to mean "Back in the USA" since I was in Korea at the time and was REALLY tired of the expression "Back in the world" that the GI's used to mean "Back in the USA." I had never heard anyone use the term "Across the pond" before, and I used it as just one of my gross understatement remarks that were supposed to be funny.
Years later, everybody was using that term, but I had long since stopped. I picked it up again recently because it is used all the time now.
I'm sure I can't take credit for inventing the term, but it was a cute coincidence.
Dolly speaks with a ****ney accent. On the drinks thread, we talk about ****tails. A confident person might be ****-sure. An arrogant person is ****y.
