    1)au pair -A young foreigner who does domestic work for a family in exchange for room and board and a chance to learn the family's language (Guru dictionary).


    2)house warming - a party you celebrate when you move into a new house.

    3)pill-popping - taking too many pills, overdoing it.

    4)it make my hair pouf - haven't heard that one...perhaps makes my hair stand on its end?

    5)what a one-hit wonder that slut turned out to be - in the music industry it refers to a song or an artist who simply vanishes after producing one great hit. There is never anything after that.
    what a one-hit wonder that slut turned out to be: this woman (slut is a derogatory term for a woman that has many casual sexual encounters) has nothing to show for other than being a one night stand.

    6)what i am realy into thses days? - what I am interested in doing, what keeps me busy.

    7)it is like a soundtrack to slit your wrists to - ...depressing? boring? awful!
    8)what is the mening of happen in this sentence e.g. it happens to be depressing

    9)they started to grow fangs - started to grow big venomous teeth...on a dracula or a snake for example.

    10)people person- friendly person, one that likes company and is liked by the company.

    11)i'm hoping you can hook me up whit a jacket(1.what is the meaning 2)there would be any diference if we say i hope you can hook me up whit a jacket) - you can find me a jacket. Sounds terribly slangish.

    12)putting out feelers- you'd say that when you want to feel out the situation by asking indirect questions.

    13)fellas- fellows

    I hope i don't bother you

    For #4, I haven't heard it, but I imagine it's to stand on end too. I'd think it would something like:
    It made my hair -pouf!
    It sounds very like spoken language not written.
