You (the OP) said in your original post that you wandered around with a "nipped bottom". As one who is alternately fascinated and bewildered by British expressions, I'd love a translation please. Could it be something as simple as a "clenched sphincter"?

And what is being "chuffed" that I see frequently in British photo mags? The context makes it sound like it means overjoyed. But in the absence of any other context, the sound of the word would lead me to think that it meant something negative like "put off" or "peeved".

Hi Doug,
I think roughly translated, you are dead on about the clenched whatsit!
Chuffed, contrary to what it sounds is actually " very pleased" in Brit-speak!
