Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Home among the Gum Trees
"Mull up" is a new one on me. I do know some Brits who use the phrase "skin up," however. I wonder where that phrase comes from? Is a cigarette paper called a "skin"? Are the two terms related somehow? (Besides meaning the same thing, I mean.)

I don't think we Americans have any phrase ending in "up" for this particular activity.
