Well, let me try to make something up so the wide world of my readership will think her majesty's Untied Kingdom of GREAT britain and NORTHERN ireland, by god, is rolling on as usual and not simply stuck like a stunned MULLet in the kwagmire of WILL N KATE anticipations. Donchaknow.
I love this blog. I can spell it anyway I damned well please and yall think it's correct, only the American way of spelling. And them what don't will just put it down to my sorry American education, so it's win-win one way or tother. But here's a few Us for U: UUUUUUUU. Catch me up, hey?
Moi discovered a new British word this week. "Previous." I won't embarrass her/him by mentioning the name of the person who used it on me. Ok, ok -- Americans KNOW the word previous. But we don't use it like, "I guess I was a bit previous in saying that." We would say "preematoor" if we wuz meanin "spoke too quick" like he/she did. So (since I think it is really slang - which is okey dokey with regard to this blog's intent) not to embarrass her/him, I'll just hint that his/her initial is somewhere in the alphabet before the letter "B."
Speaking of Ireland, (if you are following my non-embarrassment drift) everything was agoan s'well. Leave the Guinness though, I reckon. Not the stout. Pteu-wee! I've been getting a lot of my BritishSpeak lately from this same reader. Which I appreciate, since the rest of you don't seem to give a royal rat's ass about my collection anymore.
Where was I?
Oh, I wanted to take this opportunity to express my displeasure at your lack of wit in responding to my "O Fair Lancashire" post, or whatever the name was. It was pitiful. Not the post (that was just shy of magnificent - especially the "Scarborough, so fair" portion) but your "Yeah, Leeds is in Lancashire, what of it" uninspiring retorts. Not even retorts, really. "Clever" British humouuuur at best. Thank you all for reading my blog here but sometimes you make me sick. No offense. If Alison were still among my readers, SHE would have set me straight. And she's never even BEEN to Yorkshire. I'd wager. Speaking of non-readers, Catherine Sharp (who claimed to be Something-Upon-Taff-born) has a new blog though her old one has rearisen as a commercial endeavor. Endeavour? Discovery? Atlantis? Don't leave and go there now, though.
God, I have so much more to say. Especially JUICY gossip about Expat Mum, link coming soon, but I will reluctantly (and previous) stop here now.
