Tea gives me a headache. Wanna swap nationalities?

swapping nationalities
I don't think so. All I ever hear people say is how cool and damp it is in the British Isles -- I assume that's not true everywhere all the time, but I'd as soon stick with warm and sunny.

I love tea, though -- with lots of sugar.

Re: swapping nationalities
Hey, we're warm and sunny - at least four days out of 365! And we have cricket, proper chips, London, Stratford, the changing of the guard, free healthcare for all, the moors, the lakes, the dales, York minster, infinitely superior chocolate, proper swearing, proper football... Hey. Who knew, I do like this country!

Re: swapping nationalities
I've heard some horror stories about free healthcare for all, in practice, although not having experienced I'll reserve judgement. And we do have a few things to compare to yours: you have cricket, but we have cheerleading competitions; you have the changing of the guard, but we have the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier's changing of the guard; you have the lakes, but we have the Great Lakes; and having visited Hershey, Pennsylvania, I'll argue with you on the chocolate thing.

As for warm and sunny -- a low pressure system has been sitting over Indiana for nearly a week, so I'm getting a pretty darn good taste of England in the rainy season!

*hands you scones with butter, jam and clotted cream, and a pot of tea*

Yum! Butter and jam, and sweet tea! I just finished supper, and yet I'm hungry again!

I Wouldn't Recommend This Country To Anyone
Great history, but that's all we are. History. The governments of the past 25 years have seen to that.

Re: I Wouldn't Recommend This Country To Anyone
Most people here in the States like England as a whole, although I hear complaints about the food and the weather ... and, yes, the government, but Americans love to complain about governments.

A lot of Americans like to compare England to France, which shows you why we like England so much.

Re: I Wouldn't Recommend This Country To Anyone
The food's great. No country (bar Egypt, China, Italy, and Greece) can rival us for history.

But the governments are embarassing.

Historical Influence
One way to judge Great Britain's historical impact is to look at the history of every other nation in the world -- and notice how few can recount their own histories without mentioning Great Britain.

Re: I Wouldn't Recommend This Country To Anyone
I don't know - we've still got the cricket.
May. 13th, 2006 06:22 pm (UTC)
I am. Really I am. My kids have to remind me that I am Mexican and not from the UK!
May. 14th, 2006 01:41 am (UTC)
Lots of history in the UK -- I'd love to take a tour over there sometime. Maybe when I sign my first overseas writing contract!
