Just sitting here thinking about how i am gonna gloat to my friend tomorrow about Runescape

Would i say option 1:
I stayed up all night and fished.

or option 2:
I stayed up all night and fash.

Just wondering

option 1, according to the dictionary 'fished' is a word and 'fash' is not.

1.

No. 2 is just meaningless!

They're both quite awful. "I stayed up all night fishing."

I agree, Bast's version is much better.

'I stayed up all night and fished for trout' would be a good use of the word 'fished'. But unless you are going to go into the detail, go with Bast's version....

/me likes "I stayed up all night and fash"


Of course... thats just me =D

Fash is indeed a word, and a very good one!

Noun: fash

1. Vexation; anxiety; care

Verb: fash

1. To vex; to tease; to trouble


It has nothing to do with fishing, though perhaps it could involve phishing...
