Hate to burst your bubble but (butt!) we (growing up anyway) never used the word "butt"--always "bum" so maybe it's one of those things that came over with the Mayflower and stayed here (me and JR are Massholes) in Greater Boston. He still lives here and plays in my neighborhood so often (Cambridge/Somerville) that I almost feel guilty about it. I'm so proud of him for staying here, though, cuz it's so goddamned boring and he could have buggered off to NYC and been cool like all the, erm, cool people.Rocker wrote:That's a Brit thing!

I haven't listened to his solo stuff for years, really, and the tastyknibbles wedding CD (which I have been listening to obsessively for the last two weeks!) has revived my interest and now I must dig my CDs out of storage and see what I've got.
