Both "laundry (room)" and "utility room" are heard here in Leftpondia, and we have the same convention about "do the washing", "wash the dishes", and "do the dishes" that you do. But "do the laundry" is equally felicitous. -- John Cowan <jcowan@...> "But no living man am I! You look upon a woman. Eowyn I am, Eomund's daughter. You stand between me and my lord and kin.
