    Just a few more slang things

    Anyone have time to tell me what these mean? (I'm sorry to keep asking and asking things but this stuff is not in the dictionary)

    reprends tes esprits

    I don't agree with the translation given by mordan to "cette fille t'en faisant voir de toutes les couleurs". Always has a negative meaning. For instance, cet prof t'en faisant de toutes les coulers pour passer son examen, means a teacher who makes you work very hard, to pass his exam. Usually, you must assume that there is a close link between the persons involved. The origin of this sentence is that when you are beaten on the head you see stars of all colours.
