Thank Yeh-oo in Advance

With some American English-speaking, usually young female speakers, I sometimes perceive a subtle but distinct shift of ... tone, maybe (?), in the middle of the word "you" that makes it sound almost like "yeh-oo" instead of "yo͞o". My American English-speaking, mid-40's female partner neither pronounces the word this way nor does she hear it in others when I point it out. Am I hearing things, or is this "a thing"? What is it called? Is it a "glottal stop"? Why do some people pronounce it like that and others don't? [more inside]

Small fish: whole vs "whole"

I'd been under the impression for many years that it was fine to cook and eat small (finger length-ish) fish whole; head, tail, AND guts. I can find a few articles on line supporting this, but they all use a different size standard, and there are virtually NO recipes I can find that suggest this practice. The recipes say they're for (e.g.) whole smelt, but the first step always involves gutting/cleaning them, which is a slightly different definition of whole than I thought. [more inside]

Does cooking olive oil "ruin" it in any way? I'd be more specific but I'm quoting my girlfriend so I want to be very careful here.

Ask Jeeves

I have come into some Amazon.com credit, and I want to spend it on the Fry/Laurie Jeeves series; although I have never seen it, I adore the Wodehouse books and the two stars so I don't see how I could go wrong! I can't afford all the episodes, though. Which season would you recommend to me, and why?
