Don't forget to vote for your favourite British blog. That's mine in case you were wondering. The Metro in the UK is holding a competition for the best British Blog http://www.metro.co.uk/askblogs. I mean what's better than an American blogging about life in Britain.
Today I bought tickets to see my first sporting event in the UK. I'm going to see a football game (that's soccer to you Americans) at the end of the month. Don't know anything about the 2 teams playing that's part of the fun and excitement. I'll let you know if I survive the adventure.
As I write this I am watching some telly. A lot of the shows are aired multiple times over the course of the week. Special programs as well as regular serials are displayed a couple of times in case you miss the first one which can be good, however when you only get a couple of stations seeing the same programs repeatedly can become a bit of a bore. There are a few American programs that air here, although a couple of weeks behind. Recently aired here are Christmas episodes of Ugly Betty and Desperate Housewives, American Idol is only a few days behind. This weeks episodes are airing here tonight, the only difference is the logo on the coca-cola glasses in front of the judges are blurred so you can't see the logo. I guess coca-cola doesn't sponsor American Idol in the UK.
And in summary a quiz for all of you. Explain the difference between England, Great Britain and the UK. The winner gets bragging rights.
