Bum Bag or Fanny Pack? You Decide!


Bum Bag or Fanny Pack you decide!
As part of my light hearted post season(needed after doing my counselling homework!), I thought i would create a new fun thing!
As a Blog ambassador for the UK i thought i would help solve some English/American Issues.
Especially when it comes to some problems of words being misused!

    BTW Someone's been leaving comments scattered around my blog in a quite transparent attempt to reach No.1 They'll be on the end of a severe e-spanking if it keeps up ;-p

  7. Hhmm...I'll have to go with "bum bag" - if I really have to choose between the two.

    I lived in London for twelve years before moving to Sweden, and fanny has somewhat different connotations for me.

  8. Well I know it as a fanny pack...but that doesn't necessarily mean it to be so. To me Fanny pack sounds more polite than "Bum" pack. But that is just me.

    Yes now that is a funny thought and I great way to start my day.

    Cheers Happy Monday!

  10. I've never heard them referred to anything but "fanny pack" so guess that is one reason I'd vote for that term. "Bum" pack - just doesn't sound right to me.

  11. honey you are wrong on both counts i'm afraid. it is called a fashion faux paux. now if you have one in your closet, please go throw it away. now. before anyone sees it. and honey, put it in a plain brown wrapper first and don't let anyone know you are the one that threw it out, okay?? (whew, i have to keep teaching these young ones.) sigh....

  13. I never knew why it was called "fanny pack" either -- though that's what it is called. But not worn over the fanny.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog.

  17. Aston Villa rode their luck at Hull City where an 88-minute own goal from Kamil Zayatte saw them leapfrog three points clear of Arsenal and into fourth place in the Premier League wow gold with a 1-0 win.

    Villa had to survive Hull penalty appeals for a handball against Ashley Young in time added on, television replays showing that referee Steve Bennett wow gold correctly rejected the claims after consulting a linesman.

    Bennett had been involved in controversy after just five minutes when American goalkeeper Brad Friedel looked to have handed Hull the initiative and threaten Villa's return to the Champions League qualifying wow gold zone.

    Friedel spilled wow gold the ball under pressure from Nick Barmby and stand-in right-back Nigel Reo-Coker turned it into his own net as he attempted to wow gold clear.

    But Bennett cut short wow gold celebrations at the KC Stadium -- and let Friedel off the hook -- when he ruled out the score for an apparent infringement by Barmby.

    Zayatte's intervention from a Young cross bound for wow gold Gabriel Agbonlahor then saw Villa leapfrog Arsenal and draw level with Manchester United on 38 points -- seven adrift of leaders Liverpool and four wow gold behind Chelsea.

    Stung by an on-pitch dressing down wow gold by manager Phil Brown at Manchester City last week, Hull showed five changes and a vastly improved performance.

    Promoted Hull were looking for only their second win in 11 games while wow gold Villa arrived unbeaten in seven and it looked to be heading for a goalless draw when the home side suffered a cruel late blow.
