Hi Dark,
I suspect that Jo was using Moaning Mertle's bathroom for one reason.
The ghost uses the toilet as a bath.
She likes sleeping in the toilet's U bend.
That is the u shaped part of the pipe to prevent fumes from coming back through the room.

I would find that absolutely insane, english characters using American terms, ---- heck when something from America comes out over here we don't have it edited to use the British terms for things at all, in fact I remember being quite litle when my dad explained to me that American words for clothing such as pants and shorts didn't mean the same thing as over here.

I wonder what they did about the very english slang such as git as an insult or Loo for toilet which both come up in the books.

The one odd thing is jk does use the term "moaning mertle's bathroom" on occasion even in the original uk edition, she alternates betwene this and calling it a toilet as would be usual over here.

Beware the Grue!

Dark.
