Wonderful! It would be great to get the history behind the slang, too - but I'm a word-geek & want to know the history of most words to begin with. LOL

Stay calm and carry on.

What a great site -- thanks for passing it along! Some of the entries and comments reminded me of an episode I saw recently of Arrested Development. Have you seen it? GREAT show -- find the DVDs somewhere [it's not in syndication, unfortunately] and start with the first episode to get the background and a sense of the characters -- it just gets funnier and funnier as the shows go on. Anyhow, in season 3, the main character falls for a British woman and his conversation starts getting peppered with Britishisms. Funny stuff. I can't believe it never caught on with the public. I think it's as good, and sometimes better than Seinfeld.
