The AP doesn't show any signs of getting a job. This means that she is in the flat all day. Every day. She doesn't do much. Sometimes she sits in the kitchen reading the newspaper. Sometimes she is on the phone to other people who talk funny. Sometimes she is on the internet looking at whatever it is the APs look at.

Mainly she parks herself in the front room and watches telly. She has discovered some Spanish channels on Sky and she watches them all day. As far as he can see, they're soap operas.

What Yaxlich has learnt about Spanish soap operas:
  1. They always have girls with big bosoms
  2. They always have one ridiculously handsome man in an episode
  3. People in Spain still think moustaches look good
  4. They are always shouting
He wonders what it must be like for foreign people watching EastEnders. He guesses that his Spanish equivalent would come up with this list:
  1. All British people are clinically depressed
  2. Nobody in Britain owns a washing machine
  3. Everyone in Britain is ugly
  4. There is no Spanish translation for "wassamatter?"

Look on the bright side, as long as you are working you don't have to spend all day watching soap operas as well.

I'm pretty sure my personal hell would involve having to watch soap operas all the time, perhaps with the occasional break to listen to the Archers.

YOU watch knobenders? Disgusted, shame on you, and I thought you were intellectual!

Yaxlich has got it wrong again. The correct spelling is "wassamarrer?".

Answer: a "marrer" is a big green vegetable that nobody likes and it is too big to stick where the sun don't shine, in the entire cast of

From what I've heard of Eastenders, they probably got their characters from here.

Sometimes, I pretend that I live in a soap opera. It's fun and I get a chance to wear glamorous evening wear.

I cannot help noticing that they have never yet managed to find a ridiculously handsome man to star in Eastenders. I feel swizzed. Or would do, if I watched Eastenders, which I do not.

Guyana-Gyal - Keith thinks that someone is pushing her luck.....

What does Yaxlich think?

Iggy - Yaxlich works at lots of different times so there are some days when he has to share the flat with the AP. This is how he has become an expert on Spanish soap operas.

John G - Yaxlich is neither an intellectual or someone who watches EastEnders. He hasn't seen it (apart from the Spanish dubbed version) for a number of years. He would rather gouge his own eyeballs out with a spoon.

Keith - Is Yaxlich always wrong? Even if he were a falling tree in a deserted forest?

GG - Somehow GuyanaEnders doesn't have quite the same ring to it. Guyana Gang, on the other hand...

Mist1 - Yaxlich thinks you need to watch more English soap operas. They tend to involve depression, flat caps and sheep.

Katy - Most of the people who appear in EastEnders seem to have had a face fire which someone put out with a shovel.

Keith - What does Yaxlich think? Happy thoughts.

Yaxlich says hello to you too, Tish, although he was expecting a more insightful comment :-)
