Desperate English Housewife in Washington, chapter 578

Desperate goings-on in the USA today

Random things from the USA today……

1. Harry attended his elementary school dance yesterday. He was slightly disappointed by it, though, since it was ‘nothing like the Enchantment Under the Sea dance in Back to the Future with a band and where you get to choose a girl to dance with’. That’s what watching USA movies does to your brain, and I should know. I thought New York would be more of a mix of Taxi Driver and Fame!. 😉

It was not like this!

It was not like this!

2. I realised today that, when I tried to write it down, have quite forgotten how to write the British pound sign. I had to look it up 🙂 #britishexpatfail



3. Our flights to return to the UK from the USA are booked. The American adventure will be over in 5 months, folks. Wow. Don’t forget to read my blog From America to England to find out how all that is going (fyi, it’s emotional!)

4. When Brits get together and there is one American in the group and we start spouting forth stuff about our British culture, it’s very confusing for them. One certain reference sure to go over their heads is St. Trinian’s. Now, how to explain that little piece of 70s British culture to Americans…?!

Oh those gals!

Oh those gals!

    Gosh yes, St Trinian’s would be impossible to describe. I always had fun trying to describe the Eurovision Song Contest.
