Well, I let this one go by back in November (too busy), but I saved it. Here are a few Carraxan idioms: buruzi djul pridji - yesterday's cabbage - old news juni nochi djul cocu - a coconut - a big proble, a real headache djul Noeu, ad ul Moseu, ad al ecueja djul Cristu - from Noah, to Moses, to the Church of Christ -- from time emmemorial, the way things have always been done ligari cun uls manus - to tie with the hands - to shake on it sini xicuu pomu juna patata - without money as a potato - broke as the Ten Commandments, flat busted, bankrupt gata ad ul huinu - until at the end - to the nth degree There are more, but there's a sampling. Adam Jin xividjilud djal suñu ed falud ul Jozevu pomu instanchid ul andjelu djul Dominu sivi, ed idavi achibid jun al su sposa. Ed nun aved cuñuxud ad sivi ancha nadud jan ad ul sua huiju primodjindu ed cuamad il su numi ul Jezu. Machu 1:24-25
