Desperate English Housewife in Washington, chapter 566

The White House West Wing Visit

Well, scrub it off the bucket list! We visited The White House. And jolly nice and white it was too 🙂 .

If I tell how we got in there I would have to kill you, so let’s just say it was a specially arranged visit….

I couldn’t help comparing the whole West Wing to the House of Cards set, which has slightly bigger corridors and Oval Office, which, I am guessing, is to accommodate the cameras and all us effing extras.

Totally top notch was being able to visit the secret remaining bit from when the Brits burnt down the White House in 1814. Sorry about that, Americana chums.

Anyway, I was sad not to be able to compare arm muscles with Michelle, who was obviously lunching somewhere fabulous and not hanging around her husband’s work at the weekend. Fair play to her.

Here are the pics:

They left a microphone for me to play with :)

British accents are the best!

Well, they are the most attractive apparently. ‘Tis true! A survey recently found the British accent to be the most attractive in the world.

I have. And I don't. :)

I have. And I don’t. 🙂

The British twang beat out American, Irish and Italian to get the top spot, while French – an accent often associated with seduction – was found to be only the fifth most attractive accent. Sorry Frenchies 😉

What, what, rather! I know a lot of Americans who’d give their right arm for a British accent, or at least to have one spoken to them frequently!
