Scotland and America
I’ve heard a little rumour that if Scotland decide they don’t want to be part of the UK anymore then America might quite like to take their place. I’m not quite sure how the logistics of this would work out, but I wonder if we Brits might get to choose just one state to begin with, given that America is quite large.
I’m tossing it up between Maryland (out of loyalty); California (out of lust); and Texas (only because it would be utterly mind-blowing to see Texas and England, Wales and N. Ireland attempt to combine).
Something very serious will happen, however, if we are no longer the United Kingdom…..what the flippin’ heck will I call my blog and my twitter handle?! They’re currently UK Desperate Housewife USA and @ukhousewifeusa….right now I’m considering all options, so send them in if you have them!
John Denver Xmas special
An American friend recently told me that, for them, sitting around the TV at Christmas they had one tradition – the John Denver Christmas Special. Much like us Brits watching The Queen’s Speech, I imagine ;) .
America celebrates beating us Brits
This weekend in Baltimore it’s been all about the week of beating us Brits and how the Star Spangled Banner was written.
It’s always a bit awkward popping out to these events, because the minute you speak in a British accent someone says something all clever dick about you being British and how America whooped our arse.
Anyway, whatever happened, we’re all firm chums now and hoorah for us all!
I did have to make a mental note to myself after a few minutes at a presentation about the war and wotnot and it went like this: ‘When at the USA War of 1812 and freedom from the British celebrations don’t whoop and cheer every time they mention the British.’ ;)
