    1- an enjoyable and intellectually interesting conversation- not one about how hot it is today.
    2??
    3- relax, stay in, do nothing...
    4- Person who fits in well with a group of people who have a common interest and activity, normally getting very drunk and talking loudly in bars
    5- a girl who acts, dresses and behaves in a boyish manner
    6- say exactly what you think, directly, even if the other person might not like this
    7- take the pee is like take the piss- it means to laugh at someone, tease them
    8- it depends- they probably think it's positive, but many find zany characters wearisome. It means a bit crazy- people who are loud and unpredictable, for instance
    9- a balanced, sensible person
    10- I believe it involves dressing up in American clothes and dancing in a line
    11- no idea- it could be 'trait', which is an individual characteristic
