Egyptian Arabic vocabulary help.?

I am trying to learn Arabic, but the colloquial Egyptian Arabic. I want to start with some basic vocabulary and build up from there. Is there anyone who could translate these words for me, and add any extras if you can. (I would like it written in the English alphabet so I know how to say the word)

Thanks...

If you could do those, or as many of those as you can, and more if you want, that would be really helpful.
