Desperate English Housewife in Washington, chapter 564

Rosie runs across America

“The idea for this journey is to run across America and to run into America and to celebrate the lives of people nobody knows. At my age, you can’t wait for the world to come to you. You have to come to the world.”

These inspirational words were uttered by a 68-year-old Welsh grandmother who is running across the USA from New York to San Francisco.

I have a mind to drop it all and join Rosie Swale Pope. I wish I’d known she was around here in Maryland the last few days doing her running; I would have loved to have seen her.

Run Rosie Run

Run Rosie Run

Things British people never say (except sarcastically)

There is an excellently fun list of things that British people would NEVER say doing the social media rounds.

Totally true.

Totally true.

These are my faves 🙂

19. I honestly can’t remember whose round it is.

23. I might be drunk, but I still don’t want a kebab.

28. I actually had a detox over the Bank Holiday weekend.

30. No, however you want to make my tea is fine.

41. Math

42. Li-cess-ter

43. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone

London snow

I hear there was snow in London. And there was some kind of chaos.

Oh come on! Says the Brit on the East Coast USA who is used to big dollops of the white stuff.

Phooey to that, is all I can say. Get a grip, London! 😉

Real Desperate Housewife Problems

It’s shocking to read some of the issues that the real desperate housewives who live near me in suburbia-land, Howard County, have. Don’t read on if you are affected by seriously difficult and challenging situations – this one could really mess with your head…

‘My husband wanted me to put this out here. We bought one of those little watermelons from the Giant at River Hill. Cut into it the same night and it was rotten. I brought it back and exchanged it for another one. Cut into it soon after, and it was rotten. Haven’t taken it back, because I shouldn’t have to do that twice. I just won’t buy much produce from them anymore. Had an issue with them during the holidays also. So, just beware if you can’t see the inside of a fruit from Giant.’

No, not the rotten watermelon issue!

No, not the rotten watermelon issue!

If I hear any update on the tragic watermelon issue, I’ll be sure to let you know 😉

    Yes, there was a small amount of snow, no, it didn’t cause chaos (train and bus all on time 🙂 )
