I haven't been updating this the way I should. One of the main reasons that I haven't been doing it is simply because all those funny British habits, products, customs and names no longer are so strange. We've been here long enough that most things are (or seem) normal now. A friend said, "Haha! Your assimilation is complete!" in a joking victorious tone. I responded that it just meant we would be harder to detect when our c'lonial attack was complete. Haha!
But some things about Great Britain still strike me as pretty funny. I just heard the name of where friends are going on holiday: Sandy Balls! Just when I recovered from that, she then told me that her mother lives in a place called Bushey! People living so close to somewhere named Maidenhead shouldn't laugh I suppose, but I did. Quite a bit.
