Must confess I was being lazy with the accent on Pina Colada too, plus in the song he does sing it "pi-nah" rather than "pi-nya" so I blame Rupert, I was copying him
Interesting to read the whole language issue, over here some people will address a lady of a certain age as "Love" or "Lovey" or "Dearie" which drives my mother up the wall as she finds it really patronising especially from anyone a lot younger. Personally I don't mind as long as it's meant in a nice way. Once we went on holiday to the north east of England where women are often addressed as "Pet" which I found utterly charming especially as I adore the Geordie accent you hear up there
It's all good entertainment, it doesn't cost a penny
"Pet"? With all the feminism thing that's going on these days I'm sure someone has to have found it offensive.
Yes. Someone has definitely taken offense. I think it's really sweet when people use these casual terms of endearment to address each other. I like "hon" (Baltimore). And you can tell if it's meant to be patronizing or not.
elophile: OH, Yes! Will you take a little sip when no one is looking?

Grroosss: Well. I discovered r/ELOcirclejerk and the ELO Discord yesterday. Lots to offer (and fans my age!) but too much chaos to take in all at once... Feels good to be back home ::animated-smileys-hug-008::

Helmut83: Is there an ELO Discord? Good data, Grroosss! Gotta check it out, I've been a regular at discord since about two months ago when quarentine boredom drove me there.

Helmut83: I couldn't find it though. Maybe you got mixed up with Reddit?
