Desperate English Housewife in Washington, chapter 431

Tan not brown

I’m all sun-kissed from sunbathing, I’m not gonna lie!

It’s interesting in the USA that when someone comments on that they say ‘You’re so tan’ and in the UK we say ‘You’re so brown’. If we did say the word ‘tan’, we’d say this way ‘You’re so sun/tanned.’

Just thought I’d mention that difference as I find it very interesting πŸ™‚

Am I tan or am I brown or am I tanned...?

Am I tan or am I brown or am I tanned…?

Family Feud

My friends here in the USA are very excited to be appearing on the TV show Family Feud.

I had not heard of it. Another slice of Americana that I was not aware of. Darn it!

Anyway, this is it…..

I think it’s like Family Fortunes, but without Les Dennis, which is a huge relief πŸ˜‰

Life is for living

I did one those inane quizzes that they have popping up on the Interweb today. It was about your lifestyle and which city you should visit. I got Brazil.

But this bit really struck me, because, after living in the USA, this is exactly how I feel…..

‘You are an adventure enthusiast, who likes to party, and enjoy a wild night out. You appreciate a culture with a vivacious lifestyle. You are drawn to warm climates, and love being near the water. Sitting at home is not your style. You’d rather be doing something active or walk around the city with friends. You are fed by good conversation and have a strong personality. Your motto in life is, “Life is for living”…’

They hit the nail on the head!
