It's British for "whine." I think it's pronounced as you think. But being a big-city provincial USian, I know it from written language only, so am guessing at that.
It doesn't annoy me when used by a real British English speaker. It DOES annoy me when it's used as an affectation.
I don't know how it's pronounced, so your answer about the pronunciation didn't clarify anything.
Oh, by the way, I had no idea you read my journal. Or if I did I forgot. I know your LJ name from other people's journals, but if I know you in RL my memory is failing me. So, hi! Just to be perfectly clear, since some people have weird ideas about LJ, I'm always pleased to have anyone come along and read anything I post publicly here.

Oops. Sorry, I usually note when I have seen something via friendsfriends (as I did this time). I will note that I have often seen you in my own friends' journals, as well. Glad to be here; I'll try to leave the place tidier than when I came in :-)
