I don't think he likes the job, he looks pissed.

I think he's well paid to look pissed. You ought to see the pics on the comp card his Italian agency made for him to show around to clients over there. He really looks bummed in those pics. (I'm told they're the same folks who represent Heidi Klum and Kate Moss there, BTW. They certainly did a good job for him.)

"he looks pissed" - In England, you'd add "off" to that phrase to get the same meaning. On it's own, over here, it means "drunk." Just a little info there.....

Yeah, he looks really down - what an awful life, getting paid to travel all over the world and wear clothes. I know what you mean though - models always look serious. Let's just say he was modelling a raincoat, and only Gene Kelly looks happy in the rain.....either that, or he's missing his family and his guitars.....

:D :D :D

Here originally you'd also add "off" to get the same meaning, but over the years it's come to be commonly left off. Evolution of slang. I thought it quite odd first time I heard the use of the word to mean "drunk" by a Brit. It's probably pushing the limits of propriety on this board, given Nick's usual test of whether you'd use it at the dinner table in front of your mom.

My mum usually was drunk at the dinner table - or any other table, for that matter.

:D :D :D

Well, there you go, then.

Now that I think about it, I think I first realized that "pissed" = "drunk" in Britain from listening to Chumbawamba's Tub Thumping. Cultural education.

Well, the kid's life's getting tougher. He's just been home from Milan for three days. Got a call that he's got to go to Paris Saturday for a photo shoot. They want him over there for two weeks. Bye-bye to lying around in the basement playing video games. For a while, anyway. Got to go work for a living like the rest of us.

Yeah, it's great having him around, but I was kinda hoping he'd get a call for a job during his summer break.
