Money money money...

m unimaginably rich.

“Gourmet coffee” : Ludicrously overpriced coffee

Sortir à Londres

  • "A brief pint" : In the pub until closing time.
  • "A barbecue" : Piss-up in the yard

Les transports en commun

"My commute? It's not too bad. About average" : It will involve a few modes of transportation, takes hours every day, and is little by little crushing my spirit.
