I was a little sad about missing 4th of July with my family, but not that upset. Still, on his way home from work Max stopped by a store that sells American food and bought me a bunch of misc. items: cheez-its, Arizona green tea (my favorite), oreos, reeses peanut butter cups, hershey's cookies and cream chocolate bar, swiss miss hot cocoa (with marshmallows!), and kraft macaroni and cheese (even though that's Canadian). I thought it was hilarious and very sweet. But I wonder, is me going out with a British man and he going out with an American woman (and encouraging her to celebrate her country kicking his country's ass ;) make us both traitors?
not an expatriot yet, though we haven't decided where to live yet either. i agree that it is more romantic. :)
i'm not very nationalistic. i enjoy defending Americans to the British and the British to the Americans, even though there's aspects about both i like/dislike.
In terms of the traitor question, this is 2001 not 1801. If they were really fervent in holding a grudge, that Gap on Oxford Street would've been burned down by now.
Hah this makes me laugh because I've tried to bake banana bread here, but it still didn't come out like at home. It's so strange, could the ingredients differ slightly? Maybe it's the humidity? I don't know. :)
I love it when my British friends and the media make fun of America and then they go watch American films, eat McDonald's, drink Starbucks etc. I'm not particularly proud of a lot of American exports, but they sure can't seem to get enough of them. ;)
Whatever. I've got my gallows set up. You'll be up there right next to my dad! Arr! Down with the traitors! Sellin us out! Arr!
When you coming back!?!? :|
Happy 5th of July! (I'm a little slow... You have ANY idea how long it takes to load these pages on 2400 baud?)
haha they're going to flog Max. Though his father is a traitor as well, for marrying a French woman. eeevil.
Happy 4th/5th/6th of July to you. :) I will be back later this month/early August. I'm not sure if I want to go back before or after my parents go to Spain.
2400 baud?? shit. Those were the days I could make a whole sandwhich just waiting to connect, let alone actually do anything.
"The Declaration of Independence was written by a British subject, every name signed to it was the name of a British subject. There was not the name of a single American attached to the Declaration of Independence - in fact, there was not an American in the country in that day except the Indians out on the plains."
And how sweet of Max to bring you all those goodies! :)
