Has England changed, or is it me?

Posted by episode81 on September 29, 2010

I am at the Arboretum!

I recently spent 10 days in England to see my family and take a moment out of the sun.  I have been back to the UK about once a year or so since I left in 1996.  Nothing has hit me as being really different until this trip.

The first clue was to be found at the motorway services.  There were several business people at the Starbucks having business meetings.  Nothing too surprising in that. However, when it was two women meeting, it was just horrifying.  They greeted each other in high sing-song voices, and then continued their discussions in the same high sing-song voices.  No, not a aberration.  It happened again at other service stations and in every hotel lobby that I found myself in.  It was hard to ignore and incredibly irritating.  Nobody I know talks like that, so what gives?

Really.

Why?

Funny Story

Odd

I enjoy a leisurely morning.  Cup of tea in bed.  Read a magazine.  Surf the web.  Bliss.

I think I particularly enjoy the sloth aspect because my mum spent years trying to get me to spring out of bed at the weekends.  I was a … grumpy child.  She finally gave up when she managed to rouse me at 11am one morning only for me to faint in the kitchen.  To this day I cannot just jump out of bed without a light head and a major wobble.  I need to take a moment.

Yey!  Justified sloth!

It's the cheese Gromit!

I have mentioned before my interest in the odd word here and there. I have a new word to add to the original listspecies.  No reason, just like the way it sounds.

Anywho, I digress …
