Mindy Kaling, who plays the super funny Kelly from the office wrote an article that made me relieved that I'm not the only one who does this. I really do create extensive scenes of my future life with whoever my future husband is at the moment. I also have back up families just in case I tire of the fake spouse in question, or when it's based on a real person, feel like they'll never actually love me or feel sick of them. Anyways, brill article!
Because I'm leaving tomorrow (HOPEFULLY because the snow storm in America may ruin my long awaited plans. Ughhhhhh I pray not! I'm going to have to read extensive bible passages tonight to put God in my favor) I had a feast tonight of steak and cheddar pie, peas, and then stick toffee pudding. It was the last piece that set me over. Oh. My. God. I don't remember it being that sweet. In Oxford I essentially had a heavy pudding every night for dinner, on top of a heavy meal. I wonder why I gained weight! Anyways, here's a pic of the pudding:
I should probably start packing now... ughhhh. Pleaz Mother Nature, make the East Coast clear up by tomorrow!
I've realized in the last two weeks that "Gotten" isn't a word here. After my British-English spell check constantly told me that I was spelling a fake word I looked it up to make sure that I haven't been using a fake word my whole life. I'm fine. Apparently it's an American-English word, but isn't a word here. WEIRD. Apparently it's the most glaring difference in British-American grammar. Also, it's not proper to start a sentence with "And" here, while in America they teach you it's okay but by AP English, they say it's okay in some instances. I have, however, found that some people missed out on this lesson. So maybe my teacher was making it up... Nope, just looked it up, I'm right... YOU CAN START A SENTENCE WITH AND!
Wow, I think this blast of blog posts is a good sign for how much I'll be posting over Christmas. GET READY!
So it looks like as I mentally predicted, nothing will come out of Copenhagen. CNN meanwhile has ignored the entire conference because there is nothing on their website about it. Oh wait, I just saw a tiny link. There is however a story about "Mysterious 'Pete' sneaks in to help!"
On a positive note, things I'm going to do today:
-Buy my mom a Christmas present, last one to get!
- Wear my new H&M dress and be hipsta (btw, I have no money so buying it was a very poor decision, but it was heavily reduced!)
- Go see Where the Wild Things Are by myself. First time I've ever done this!
- Pick up some snacks/a full meal prior to seeing the film.
- Go to Waitrose and buy some British treats for my family and an absurdly British dinner for myself because I have no good food left.
-Watch The Jersey Shore
-Go to bed excited that I get to go home for Christmas TOMORROW!
