That's a session musician I think. Notwithstanding the rest of the above.
No he's a fully fledged member, just not allowed on stage. His name is Terry Lawless, apparently he plays under the stage. Probably from shame.
That sucks. I'm sure he's well paid and all, but can't he go join his own band.
Getting a paycheck from U2 but not having to go onstage with Bono sounds like the best of both worlds tbh.
Calling dessert pudding
Pudding, pud, afters. All acceptable terms, especially up north.
What don't you get about that?
Ah it's because I'm not from the UK. Pudding has always been a type of dessert to me (rice pudding, Christmas pudding etc.) not a catch all for dessert. So people calling ice cream or cake pudding throws me.
Ah right. I say "pudding" ("dessert" sounds affected to me, or American, or French), but I also say "tea" for your evening meal, "settee" and "lounge", which are all apparently quite common (as in "as muck") - which I'm not.
U2 were ace up until Rattle & Hum which was wank and their ‘let’s conquer America’ album
So basically everything pre ‘87 and up until ‘The Joshua Tree’
tea = dinner
front room = lounge / living room
and i am common as muck
U r the aspiring middle class aicmfp.
Tho I’m pretty sure I’ve never heard anyone other than an estate agent say ‘reception room’.
does anyone still have a parlour in their house?
Dinner = what Londoners might call 'luncheon', in most northern towns.
Front or back?
front, I guess, but either
old-school London caffs still serve dinners (at lunchtime)
Granddad or Grandpa ?
My wife thinks Grandpa sounds posh.
Grandpa sounds like you ought to have a cousin Enos hereabouts y'all. Grandpapa is proper Victorian posh but any kid heard calling someone that is likely to get mercilessly bullied. Grandad or maybe Pops.
That fucks me off in sci fi/post-apocalyptic films actually - where kids call their parents 'Papa' and 'Mama'
such an affectation/load of bollocks
I think Papa and Mama is pretty common usage in them there foreign countries.
Pops is Your Old Man = father no ?
