I think Cellier des Dauphins Merlot might be the best cheap wine I've ever had. Definitely better than Charles Shaw. Shocking I know.

On that note, my top five favorite foods (in no particular order) that I can easily find in the UK and not in the US:

1- Jacket Potatoes
2- Penguin biscuits
3- Hobnobs (5 bucks in America, 90 p here) and digestives
4- Tetley Tea (so cheap... so good)
5- Scones, clotted cream and jam (which I have yet to have since arriving. hopefully tomorrow!)

Number one food item I miss in America: Good quality drip coffee and on that note cheap coffee machines. I can't do instant anymore. I need to buy a French press.
Oh America...
I'm heading up to Oxford tomorrow for the night. This is what I get to look forward to, SWINE FLU that is currently ravaging my college. I hope at least a couple of my friends avoid its clutches.
The sun has come out almost every day since I got here (with like 3 exceptions)... I think England is happy that I returned.
Reason I am single #1: I have more than once decided not to go out with my friends and have instead stayed in my room, ate biscuits and watched Persuasion.
