Subject: RE: BS: dead stupid....etc...
I've got a sneaking fondness for the Londoner's predilection for "well" attached to anything ... such as "well hard" (as in tough, of a gang) or "well happy".   It gets most interesting when you get someone's excuse - "Couldn't come to school because I was well ill".
