Apparently, I am classed as an expert expat – well, whaddya know!? An opinionated expat, maybe….
Anyway, these guys asked me, along with some other expats, for some expat advice on getting along in your host country, money and banking issues, how to make the most of your experience and other bits and bobs. Click here to find out what we said.
We’re all doomed
The weather men told us with great glee yesterday that we’re pretty much in for snow-maggedon. ‘Polar Vortex, Snow Storm Will Bring Certain Doom To D.C. Area Tomorrow‘ were there exact words.
Nine inches, they said. And my jaw dropped open like it should if someone tells you to expect nine inches 😉
Anyway, crass innuendo aside, the snow, it cometh and it cometh thick and it cometh fast and it is a right royal pain in the arse. ANOTHER snow day! I can’t take anymore! Surely we’ve had at least 17 now, which means adding on some days in the summer…pretty please?
The lovely mix up of language
Pants, suspenders – totally different meanings in the USA and the UK, and I love that they are different, because otherwise we wouldn’t have this joyous cartoon to chuckle at 🙂
