Musings of an Idle Mind

The week was a bit switched around, so today ended up being the dreaded Cleaning Day instead of yesterday. The advantage--I had plenty of time to pay attention to my CD collection. This led to a question, however. I was listening to Kate Rusby, who sings "been" to rhyme with "seen". That in itself is hardly surprising--she's from Yorkshire--but it suddenly occured to me that, while most of the USA pronounces "been" as "bin", nobody habitually pronounces "seen" as "sin." As if the world didn't have enough problems!
