It’s gone Halloween crazy!
It’s crazy day – which means it is officially Halloween!
America goes nuts. Totally nuts.
Kids get up at 6am because they are so excited about it being Halloween. Fact.
People wear costumes whilst shopping in the supermarket. Like this.
On this day normally sane people shove candy down their oesophagus until they throw up. And then they get a sugar hangover.
Yey, it’s ‘holiday time’ in the USA. Hello Halloween food.
As I type this I can hear the song ‘I Want Candy’ blasting out from the school Halloween parade.
(What an excellently retro video!)
Happy Halloween Holiday, folks!
The V sign – USA vs UK
I know the “V-Sign” gesture i.e. extending your index and middle finger in a manner similar to the “Peace” or “Victory” gesture with the palm facing inward is what we do in the UK, but in the USA they reverse the palm, which is considered offensive to the British. It basically means ‘F*ck off’ to us Brits!!! Just so you know, American chums! 😉
Americans seem to use the second one a lot without knowing that some Brits might just think they’re being rude….. But now we know you just got it the wrong way round, so no offence taken 😉
I prefer the Vulcan salute meaning “Live long and prosper”. That way, no one can take offense, even though they might think you are a big naff. (No, I don’t want to go into the original meaning of naff, please.)
Nooo, not a BIG naff, a BIT naff! Hit post too soon.
Reading your blog entries always seems to brighten my day. Today I got an extra lift when I got to enjoy a pic of Robbie Williams-as one of his few American fans, sightings are few and far between!
Thanks Jennie! Yes, he is a Brit legend! 🙂
