And why is that? :D
I like to think everything whizzes by her head like sheep jumping over fences, and that Marius comes by every 3-4 sheep. And add scattered leaves flying around and rain falling too. And maybe a unicorn. Thus the insides of Éponine's mind.

Heck, that line's hilarious in English, too! :lol:

The more sane translation would be: "Makikitulog ako dito"---which actually translates to "I'm sharing this (bed)room with you." It's everyday parlance, and something that yes, my crazy friends have used on me and only in the extreme circumstances.

However if one is to be gutterminded and take into account the word 'with', the sentence comes out as "Andito ako para kasiping kita"---which means that "I am here to sleep with you", but the word "kasiping", despite its literal meaning to 'share a bed' or 'sleep with' does connote a certain intimacy that would horrify Marius.

Yay, found one that is not here yet...brace yourself for Naughty Bishop:

“Moreover, Monseigneur has the habit of always saying ‘come in’; and besides, even in the middle of the night, O mon Dieu! there is no need to ask permission.”

At that moment there came a tolerably violent knock on the door.

“Come in,” said the Bishop.

The Bishop and his nightlife....will wonders ever cease?
