Entertainment

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.

I can answer the quiz. Great Brit is England, Scotland, and Wales. England refers to teh country and the UK includes Ireland. Although Great Britain and England are used interchangablely by most people. what do I win?
