Subject: BS: great Teresa's I have known

when i was 16, i went to tech. having failed miserably to connect with my school career. if my parents had been willing to accept my decision to become the next Spider John Koerner - much of this would have been avoided and much expense - both material and spiritual.

at tech
there was this lovely girl in my biology class.
Teresa...
very short skirts, and amazing thighs.

trouble was. she was a baptist and wanted me to come to jesus.
apparently this involved going to a chapel .singing hymns. listening to a sermon, then coming forward and declaring myself a supplicant for god's mercy.

young as i was
i thought
bollocks to that!

We had a cat named Tess, named after 'Tess of the D'Urbevilles'
Walter Pardon used to call her 'The Contessa' because of her haughty nature.
Most people don't know this but the Liverpool speech excise exercis equivalent was "How now brown cow" was "Tarra Teresa- see yer Thersdy"

I have a cousin named Theresa (with the "h"). I honestly think she's the only Theresa or Teresa I've ever known. Probably met a few in passing, but none who were memorable. The gods and goddesses must have been conspiring to protect me from them. Or maybe them from me.

15 years ago me and the mrs went on a Saturday pilgrimage to Nailsea...

former home and resting place of Adge Cutler.

We found a rough cider pub to rest up in for a few hours while we paid our respects..

There was an old bloke and his middle aged daughter, Theresa, propping up the bar..

They spoke their own indisipherable language and became steadily even more the worst for wear..
bickering, arguing, fighting, falling off bar stools...
excellent real life pub entertainment.

If I recall events correctly, eventually the daughter made a melodramatic exit from the pub..

leaving the old man whining pitifuly after her...

"Cheezer.. Cheezer.. don't leave me Cheezer... Cheezer..Cheezer.. come back.. Cheeeeeezer......"

We had to leave to walk a long way back to the nearest train station home..

And we could still hear some distance down the road, a faint forlorn "Cheezer... Cheeeezer.."

So.. we can't help ourselves whenever we see our dear PM on the telly... "Cheeeeezer.."... 😜

The sender's name was (really) Theresa Green.

Hahaha! I had a Theresa Green in my class of 8yr olds. And believe it or not, a Mary Christmas. And in the very same class, a Paul Small and a Mark Clarke. Taking the register each morning was an absolute scream.
And a colleague had a pupil called Annette Curton.

My lovely hairdresser is called Teresa, but is always known as 'Terry'.

Just think of all the Treasas out there.

A childhood amongst German - American Lutherans made for next to no Teresas.
A parochial Catholic childhood would have been a different matter.

we had several Albert Halls at our school.

and one Orson Cart. some parents are just bastards, i guess.

i think the thing about Teresa that really drove me mad with lust was the very modest way she got off her bicycle.

i have no recollection of seeing her pants.

As long as you saw her pant...

I taught a girl called Jean Shrimpton in the 70s. In the 80s I taught a girl called Terri Bull.

Jean Shrimpton in the 70s. I bet she was a model pupil.

I heard a story about a couple, Mr & Mrs Rider, adopting a girl and were dissuaded, by the social worker, from calling her after the "Joy" she was bringing!

Not bastards, but blinded by the joy the event brings.

I met a Wayne K King in New Zealand, I still have his business card.

Anyone remember Theresa T in the Mudcat some years back? She was a bitty lady from the UK, with a BIG voice and an even bigger spirit. I enjoyed meeting her at the Getaway at Camp Ramblewood.

I'll never forget her calling out, while Amos Jessup kept up a rhythmic beat on his guitar, Anyone got a song to go with this?

Here in the US, we pronounce the name tuh-REES-uh. Now that you have a PM with that name, I hear you say tuh-REEEEZZZZZ-uh. Is that how you always pronounce that name, or is it just for the PM?
Right-wing American Catholics say tuh-REZ, because they are obsessed with the Carmelite from Lisieux. So, is your PM Catholic?

I've always known the name to be pronounced Ter-eeza (not Ter-eessa)

But Mother/Saint Teresa has always been pronounced Ter-ayza, which is curious,as she is not named after Teresa of Avila, but Therese of Lisieux (which would be pronounced terr-ezz)

The pronunciation with a hard 'z' in the middle is what makes the name Theresa Green funny. It sounds exactly as if one were saying 'Trees are green'

As for Annette Curtin, words failed me at just how daft parents can be!

(One of our teaching colleagues, a real wag if ever there was one, tried to convince us she once taught an unfortunate child called Ophelia Balls, which sounds like the name of a Drag Queen to me. We didn't believe her.)

Mother Teresa is quite commonly pronounced Ter-eeza. Worry not, Joe. That's as far as I'm going with that!

I taught a Lee Rozee (which on the register was funnier than it might immediately appear), a lad whose surname was Mudd ("is your name Mudd?"), a lad called Oral, and he was indeed all mouth, and two memorable Turkish boys, one called Attila and the other called Ferid. Pronounced Ferret. We were on a walk to the local swimming baths one day and I had to call Ferid back in line, prompting a passer-by to grab me by the arm and tell me I really shouldn't be calling a child that. And then the Turkish boy whose surname was God ... oh, how hard it was to resist the impulse to write "God's habit of omnipresence is getting a little intrusive in the staffroom but his omniscience lets him down with his French verbs". While on teaching practice in Spain I had a Jesus ("Jesus, will you get your book out and stop mucking about") and an Immaculada Concepcion. No, you couldn't shorten it. But my all-time favourite was the child whose name in the register was Siobhan, who took no notice of me when I said her name and eventually sighed heavily and said "Miss, it's pronounced Seeb-haan".

Teachers like us Anne have probably come across dozens of strange names in our time!
In Glasgow I had a lassie in my class called Mhairi Grubb. I hadn't met this name before, and pronounced it 'ma hairy grub', which didn't go down at all well.
I also enjoyed seeing many misspellings by parents who obviously hadn't done enough research before choosing their child's name. I had a Jasson, Janees (presumably Janice) and Kathrin.

And the best of the lot (I've mentioned him before on another thread ages ago) a poor lad called Dwayne Pipe. His mates called him 'Gutter'!

When I helped my sister selling name badges in NZ (she carried 800 names including many alternative spellings like Matthew, Mathew, Matt etc) and one lady opined we wouldn't have Siobhan - so I got the appropriate badge and said "There you are" - she said no it is spelled "Shivaun" so I pointed out we had the correct Irish spelling, and she said "The priest did say something at the christening, but no the badge is the wrong spelling" !
