Desperate English Housewife in Washington, chapter 543

Christmas roadtrip

Well, y’all, I’m practicing my Southern drawl, as we’re heading on out to Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee for our Christmas roadtrip and I cannot flippin’ well wait!

I love the South. I do. I love the temperatures, the oldy-worldy-ness of it, the people and the food.

We’re hitting all sorts of towns and cities, walking trails, Savannah for Christmas Day, staying at Indian reservations and lodging in the Smoky Mountains. Dreamy!

Cop a load of that view!

Cop a load of that view!

So, expect a long, long, long blog post after the Christmas break is over!

Another fabulous giveaway (if you live near Baltimore!)

Last year I went to see The Wizard of Oz in Baltimore and loved it. I wrote a lovely piece about it!

And the smashing people at the Lyric Opera House in Baltimore like me so much now, that they’ve offered readers of this blog TWO PAIRS OF TICKETS to see Cirque Dreams Holidaze on 27 December.

How much fun!

How much fun!

This is what it’s all about!

‘Cirque Dreams lights up with 2014 holiday season with its critically acclaimed holiday stage extravaganza… Cirque Dreams Holidaze…a new cirque show…Broadway musical… and family Christmas spectacular all in one! Hailed by The New York Daily News as a “delicious confection of charm, sparkle and talent by the sleighload & so full of energy it could end our dependence on oil.” Don’t miss the international sensation that “Dazzled…at The Kennedy Center” according to the Washington Post.’

‘Be amazed by this holiday spectacle with over 300 costumes, 20 acts and 30 artists from every corner of the globe. Many of these acts have been featured on America’s Got Talent and similar TV shows in other countries making Cirque Dreams Holidaze the greatest holiday variety show on the planet!’

‘Witness snowmen, penguins, angels, reindeer, toy soldiers, gingerbread men, ornaments and of course Santa; with soaring acrobatics, gravity defying feats, elaborate production numbers, imaginative costumes, illusions and more. The show also celebrates the most wonderful time of the year with singers, original music and seasonal favorites all performed in a winter wonderland of amazement. See it in Baltimore before opening in NY in 2015!’

It looks fabulous and I wish I could go, but I can’t 😦 But you can!

To win the tickets, email me at with your guess of the name of my favourite Christmas movie (hint: it’s got Will Ferrell in it!)

Happy Holibobs, y’all!

    Oh, please, please, stop for lunch at Golden Corral (if possible) as you travel through the south and share your impressions of what I find to be the best fried chicken on that side of the pond! 🙂 Safe travels!

    Golden Corral? The $10 buffet? I would have suggested the Waffle House. My dad is from South Carolina and Charleston is really the most beautiful city in that state and I hope you stop by there to take in its charm!
