    I'm absolutely shattered, exhausted, knackered, done in, stuffed, mullahed (also mullered). All are British English slang for being very tired. There are ruder ones too but we don't need those...

    So it's true then? The Australians swear all day, every day?

    Yeah they bloody well do ;-)! Ok, I wouldn't say "buggered" to my boss but generally among friends it is used to express extreme exhaustion...well at least in my circle of friends but maybe we are just a bunch of louts. Nobody takes the meaning of the word 'buggered' literally anymore do they? We definitely don't mean it that way.
