Desperate English Housewife in Washington, chapter 586

Spring Maryland style

Well, first day of Spring here on the East Coast looks like this:

Wing or Springter...?

Wing or Springter…?

It sucks. Big time.

Why I’m slightly partial to the USA

An American friend yesterday gave an excellent description of the differences between the UK and the USA.

Theย UK is like the grown up and the USA is like the slightly rebellious adolescent in comparison.

I wonder if that is maybe why I connect so well with the USA ๐Ÿ™‚


Oh I can’t do Walmart. ย I did it once. I can’t do it again. Yesterday I had a meeting in a coffee shop next to Walmart and I had 20 minutes to kill, but I couldn’t venture inside.

Not for me!

Not for me!

Yes, I’m a Walmart snob. #sorrynotsorry

    Walmart is simply awful.

  2. Andy says:

    Walmart is simply great. Everything I need under one roof with no ridiculous Whole Foods or Trader Joes over inflated prices and food snobs everywhere.

  3. Kathryn says:

    No Walmart for me. Target ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. VictoriaK says:

    It is quite acceptable to not like WalMart, and for that I applaud you. ๐Ÿ™‚ For the first few months living overseas I missed the bright and shiny aisles of Wegman’s, filled with everything I “must” have, but no longer. Here in Austria we just pick up what we need for the next day or so on our way home from the office or what-have-you, and that is that. The European grocery mindset is one to be embraced. No overflowing cupboards, no excess food wasted. It’s rather refreshing.

    It took me years to like Walmart however, I came to realise that it has really great prices on everyday items such loo rolls, washing up liquid, and dishwasher tablets so I shop there at least once a month. Costco is great but I don’t need such large quantities for the two of us.
