My new favourite German word [May. 28th, 2007|12:13 pm]

Stubentiger - Old Living Room Tiger.

A derogatory word for cat.

I like it, muchly.

Sounds cute... but I have to admit I'm ignorant of the context.

(I learnt Stubentiger from my boss today at lunch - he's German)

Also, I notice from your profile that you mention Köln in your interests. I have to say I have a real soft spot for that place (it was my first stop in Germany when I was Interrailling).
