Yes, it’s bl*ody well true!
Marylanders are second-most likely to swear (but also third-most likely to be courteous) – says a recent poll about cursing (that’s ‘swearing’ to us Brits!) Ohio beat out Maryland as the state in which people are most likely to curse. Oh f*ck it, that hurts. But jolly well done, Ohio. See what I did there? 😉
Rudey road names
Recently Howard Magazine asked which road names in the area folks liked the best. I thought they might not publish mine, owing to it being generally a bit rude. But they did 🙂
I did not know this, but now I do! It lasted 14 years (1919-1933). That IS A LONG TIME!
Sheriff’s office and government buildings
I’ve been subbing a Zumba class for my friend and it’s an after-work class at the sheriff’s office. I was excited to see this place. However, it did not look like this.
It was actually an old 1970’s style building with lots of grey and long corridors. And there I was expecting to be greeted by a hot young deputy with tassels on his hat and a shiny badge on this chest for me to admire, but alas there was just a grumpy security guard doing the crossword. It made me realise that all government buildings, whether in the UK or the USA are pretty much the same. And very grey.
Last of the Famous International Playboys
Today, in a store, they were playing this song.
I wanted to tell everyone that I loved this song by British artist Morrissey from 1989 and that I was British and that I knew all the words and the references to the Krays, but it cut out half way through and they started playing some Katy Perry instead, which just made me a bit miffed.
So I came home and played British music. I just had a need to hear some, cos I hear a lot of American music on the radio and in the stores. (As well as Morrissey, I played The Stone Roses, Primal Scream, Coldplay and the Stereophonics, but, I confess, I also included a bit of Take That – don’t judge me…!)
Raccoon in the bedroom
My friend, Hank, found a raccoon in his bedroom today. A raccoon! That wouldfreak me out. Hank is one of my HoCoHomo friends, so naturally I could not help myself but to comment thus: ‘I’m guessing there will never be a beaver in there….’. 😉
Beavers, raccoons…it’s a whole different bundle of wildlife out here in the USA! That’s all folks!
