When it comes to the Olympics, I usually enjoy the winter ones more. Better overall events. I'll watching swimming and maybe basketball this summer. And a few others. My mother watches some of the events, so maybe I'll check out the ones she is watching.
Is that an offer? I could do with some extra cash-- I mean. I'm not too into sports but I do like watching stuff like ice skating and gymnastics. =D London's hosting the Olympics this summer so that will be fun as far as public transport is concerned...
After exams are over there's one final week of uni where societies and clubs hold events to attract members for the next academic year. My anime society is doing a barbecue thing and showing a few 'retro' movies (DBZ, Pokémon and Digimon), not to mention I have parties to go to, then MCM Expo which is one of the UKs biggest conventions after that week. That brings us to June. :D
£500 a month (not sure how much that is in $, maybe 600-800?) and I only get £2300 or so every few months. So, I don't splash out on iPads and just buy cheap comics instead.
Bad teeth, I guess stuff about tea... Apparently our cooking is horrible. Every country is going to have stereotypes and jokes made about it, and every country has people who are mean to those in and out of their country. C'est la vie~
I sometimes take my laptop to class, though it's really heavy so usually I have to bus there and bus back (which isn't as expensive as some places, but it's still £2.70 for a return journey (~$4.50). Some people when getting their loans will think "oh, I'll get a notebook!" and spend £400 or so of their school money, which is okay if they use it for school. Mine goes on paying rent. TT^TT
Everyone has English jokes too. And we're really mean to Scottish people and Welsh people and Irish people... Not many Brits like the French... My boyfriend's Irish so I call him 'leprechaun' and 'potato' all the time (as a joke, of course). 8D
Yeah, I'm sorta the same with my laptop - I'll use it until it starts to die and then buy a new one. I wouldn't want a desktop until I needed one. Don't really see the use for an iPad or any other kind of tablet.
That just reminded me of a time I was in Central (what Londoners call London, I'm learning good) and walking past Buckingam Palace; I said "OH MAH GAH BUCKING-HAM PALACE" in a very bad, valley girl accent ('cause we don't stress the 'ham' at the end, s'more like 'Buckin'em') and I'm pretty sure a guy walking by burst out laughing after he went past. So yes, we think American ways of saying British things are funny. The whole 'tomayto/tomahto' thing never gets old.
