TAKE THAT TO THE BANK: be absolutely sure of it. Often: "You can take that to the bank"—you can be absolutely sure of it. This can be used for either financial or non-financial matters. Market Oracle: <<With the Dow down nearly 1,200 points since January 1, we may be seeing a pause in the action to the down side, but I wouldn't take that to the bank. >> As Andrew Dickinson points out below, this is primarily American English.

PUT YOUR MONEY WHERE YOUR MOUTH IS: support something financially rather than just talking about it. CNN: <<Viktor Yanukovych conceded to the major demands made by protesters, he announced Friday on his website. He had been holding out against their raging street demonstrations for months.

Yanukovych said he has initiated new presidential elections and a return to the old constitution that would cut presidential power, and also form a national unity Cabinet.

And he may have put his money where his mouth is. Ukraine canceled the sale of $2 billion in government bonds, the Irish Stock Exchange said.

Russia has been buying the bonds as part of an economic deal between the two countries that helped to set off the fervor of his opposition.>>

Two-for-one Thursday! To READ THE RIOT ACT to someone is to reprimand someone strongly. To BLOW YOUR STACK is to explode in anger. Express.co.uk: <<

<<Mike Williamson admits Alan Pardew was right to read the riot act to miserable Magpies

MIKE WILLIAMSON accepts [coach] Alan Pardew was absolutely right to blow his stack over Wednesday’s home rout by Spurs – and says Newcastle fans were equally justified in their mass walk-out.>>

A PIG IN A POKE: something bought without close examination; a deal for something in which the value (or lack of value) of the thing is concealed. "Poke" is an old word meaning bag. Detroit News: <<Timely resolution of Detroit’s bankruptcy may hinge on whether Emergency Manager Kevyn Orr can convince the suburbs to buy what they suspect is a pig in a poke.

Orr’s plan of adjustment counts on Detroit selling its water and sewage department to a regional authority for $47 million a year for 40 years. The revenue will be used to bolster the city’s general fund.

He had hoped to get sign-off on a memorandum of understanding by the end of last week. It didn’t happen, and may not. Oakland and Macomb counties are skeptical that the system is worth the asking price. In fact, they fear that instead of generating revenue, the new authority will be a huge liability for their residents.>>

Johnny Depp has bought Amber Heard a commitment ring.

A bonus idiom for hump day (Wednesday, since after Wednesday you're over the "hump" of the middle of the week): IN SPADES: to a high degree. I don't see any examples of this idiom from Britain in the news. Spy Ghana: <<Thievy Bifouma took just seconds to score when he came off the bench to make his West Bromwich Albion debut in the 3-1 defeat by Crystal Palace.

The Baggies looked a different team with him in attack, with Thievy stretching the Palace defence and showing the kind of individual ability that has been lacking since the effervescent Stéphane Sessègnon’s groin injury at the beginning of January.

The 21-year-old forward has talent in spades. He also has a suspect temperament, which has held him back at Espanyol despite his impressive loan spell at Las Palmas last season.>>

DRAW THE LINE: specify a limit on something. If you say "draw the line at" something, you mean you limit it at that point. Telegraph (UK): <<A spokesman for the Association of British Insurers said: “Excluded properties should still get insurance, it’s just [that] the cost won’t be capped. Flood Re is designed to focus on areas where the lack of affordable and available cover is most acute.

More Justin Bieber jail video may stay under wraps
By Curt Anderson February 27, 2014

MIAMI (AP) — Justin Bieber's wobbly walk during a jailhouse sobriety test isn't the only thing police video captured after his January arrest on driving under the influence and other charges, but it's not clear if the remaining clips will see the light of day.

Bieber's attorneys raised no objections to the roughly 10 hours of video released Wednesday following public records requests by The Associated Press and other news organizations. They have argued to a judge, however, that police video of the 19-year-old pop singer urinating into a cup for a drug test is an out-of-bounds invasion of his privacy.>>

Hi Muriel,

My message was not very clear.
If I asked "Do you understand everything?", it's because I didn't.

> goth-inspired
I said to myself "goth" had to do with this past fashion with kinda skeleton everywhere...

I don't know if it's due to Australia & New Zealand... both countries have their vocabulary (and shortcuts).

I remember my friend Wayne, a pilot at American Airways" who told me he was in trouble when he had to speak with Aussies. Wink

A RED carpet stack, a ripped dress and a few fashion faux pas — it was just another day on the Oscars red carpet.

While the Aussies proved extremely successful on the stage, it wasn’t entirely smooth sailing on the ruby rug. A highly anticipated debut by Margot Robbie fell flat with the actor dividing critics for her goth-inspired Saint Lauren ensemble.

A few clues -

- "goth" is well the gothic style.

- "emo" is a present fashionable music style.

Sorry, I cannot be more specific as these are not my styles and, even in French, I couldn't explain.

Muriel,

Ask Google about "Lorde emo singer" and you will see that it's the music style of her music; "emo" (maybe "emotive") is even in the title of a famous song of hers.

Ask "emo music" and you'll get:

- (Wikipédia) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emo
Emo /ˈiːmoʊ/ is a style of rock music characterized by melodic musicianship and expressive, often confessional lyrics. It originated in the mid-1980s hardcore punk movement of Washington, D.C., where it was known as "emotional hardcore" or "emocore" and pioneered by bands such as Rites of Spring and Embrace.
- (Wikipédia - List of emo singers) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_emo_artists
- (YouTube) emo music

Hi Gérard, everyone
I like the expression "When pigs fly "or "when pigs have wings" or "when hell freezes over" in Spanish the comparison is different 
"cuando una rana le crezcan los pelos" "when a frog grows hairs"
in French it is "quand les poules auront des dents" "when hens have teeth" Funny isn't it ?
