    Hi people, I'm looking to have this sentence translated into Latin "I just want to
    Have a bloody good time!" if there is anyone out there that does I'd much appreciate it, many thanks.

    : D Heh.

    I don't know about the rest, but 'bloody' is 'sanguine', right?

    I thought it may be "ego iustus volo habeo a cruentus bonus vicis!" not to sure if the grammar changes somehow due to me pulling the words individually from a Latin dictionary?

    Ricouk - you can bet on it. Think of how English works.

    Subject object verb.
    People called the romanii, they want to go home?

    Think I'll just switch everything off.

    Sid nice did you just put that into an online translator? As it's the same as the translation I got myself. Need to now if it's still grammatically correct. Anyone?

    I think UncleLou or Otto know latin extremely well. I only did it briefly and it looks about right to me.

    Well, I suspect 'habeo' as 'to have' is wrong. 'Want to have' is not using the infinitive form, it's using some sort of future tense, although it may be using the gerund, which according to wikipedia is a non-finite form. Meh, grammar.

    Also, is isutis just in the sense of 'only' or in the sense of 'right'?

    Cubby didn't know how to turn off sigs!

    Yes it is for a tattoo,I've had a shit few years, now I'm all about having a bloody good time. I think you can spend your whole life worrying about what's happening with one thing and another but in my fairly long experience it's all a waste of time. enjoy it while you can. That's my motto. :)

    Ask for Comic Sans font, looks really cool.

    Give yourself 5 or gig, you're worth it.

    Not a literal translation, but it captures the spirit of the thought.

    But check with otto, it's been a while for me and he's the proper scholar round here.

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    Otto's your man. Don't set a foot into the tattoo parlour until he's checked it.

    edit: haha ... I didn't even read the thread. Got it right I see.

    Latin is shit though. Wouldn't you prefer it in Dutch?

    Ik wil mij gewoon vet amuseren!

    Go with that.

    Yeah, there's bound to be a dative somewhere where there should be a locative or something, and then he'll have to get it crossed out because all the people who know Latin perfectly will laugh at him behind his back for his grievous error.
