That looks like my backyard today :lol: ... not really funny in fact :roll: Have you heard me pestering against my frozen country already?... :wink: :lol: we will have a WHITE CHRISTMAS, it's 1 month ahead for the snow!!!

--- EDIT: To put you in context, if you look in Wiktionary under the article "pester", you won't find to right definition, you have to go far below under "French" and you will read this:


1.to make known by words and body language one's displeasure at something

So if anyone knows the right word in english for the definition above, well that would be great to know

I'm not sure there's anything exactly equivalent in English (which is quite unusual) - bemoan, demonstrate and curse all get somewhere close though. I'm sure someone else will come up with better words ;).

I thought pester meant "to annoy".

Yeah, for the English word 'pester', but Annabelle is referring to the French word, which is slightly different.

In the context of Annabelle's sentence, I think "railing" would be the closest word in English.

We're getting dangerously Off-Topic²! :shock: Quick, let's bring it back up to Off-Topic³, so that normality can be restored and the Infinite Improbability Drive shut off.

'Umbrage' might be a good one.

I'm also thinking a mix of sarcasm and :roll:. Tomala should be able to help here. :lol:

What about sth just as simple as 'complain or lament', this is her speciality and doesn't
sound as harsh as 'to pester' ... Yeah, she's always doing it in a graceful and sweet manner ... :D
