I Think I was The Queen. Or, I was British In A Past Life.

 I often get asked by people who read this blog if I am British, or at some point in my life lived in England. Here is your answer:


The top three reasons they have given to support their theory is:

1. The way I write/speak
2. Words I use
3. The way I look.


But, I can understand why you would think I am. I have an exceptionally convincing British accent (or so I think), a natural side effect of number's two and three (see below), I throw random "british words" into sentences, tweets, and the lot (number ones fault), I talk about England a LOT (Number fives's fault), and most of my favorite singers are British. (See four.)

I think I was British in a past life. Maybe that's why I'm so attracted to it all.

Five Things That Make Me A Fake Brit.

1. My Favorite Books

You haven't laughed properly unless you've read these books. Do not read them in public, because your spazzy laughing will attract people who will think you need medical attention and/or a straight jacket.

2. My Favorite TV Show
Downton Abbey

Big hats of the English variety, lot's of tea drinking, conniving while making polite conversation, a spoiled heiress, and tragical things happening and then being brilliant, so on and so forth.
 (I also quite adored Skins before it went to complete shreds with the third generation.)

3. My Favorite News Program

It's the BBC.
 I can't really elaborate on that, except to say that watching this every day is what
 gives me my impeccable accent.

4. My Favorite Singer
Amy Winehouse

This woman is basically all there is to my itunes library. Her voice was perfect, her hair was gorgeous, and she was just a really brilliant person.

(Adele currently holds the title + crown for "Currently Living" favorite singer, 
but Amy is overall Grand Supreme.  
Had to throw a little bit of Americuh-ness in here.)

5. My Posse Across The Pond. 
Cat, Emily, Madeline and Nezar.  

Cat and Emily are actually British, and they are, just, you know, amazing and super stylish and they have ACCENTS.
Madeline is soon to be British and is happy to indulge me with long conversations about London.

Nezar is half British and obsessed with tea and biscuits.

And I'm just sitting over here randomly calling soccer football (Actually I am German so this is relevant.) and  buying Wellingtons in preparation for the rain that will never come because I live in California.

 So who wants to buy me a plane ticket? 


ps. I had a reason for writing this whole thing in a huge font.
p.p.s. Really I did.
p.p.p.s. I just can't remember it at the current moment.

p.p.p.p.s. I am going to be checking out for the weekend. 

p.p.p.p.p.s. (Is that even a thing?) I'm pretty sure you know what's coming but:

  10. If you laughed at those confession books then you have to read The Diary of a Chav books. They are hilarious! The Georgia Nicholson just aren't funny in comparison but they are very british so you might not get them if your american. Just the little things but I totally recommend them :) xx

Tell me what I want to hear. Or what you want to say.

Just remember:

If you're mean, I'll track you down and replace all your shoes with those hideous white tennis things that are so popular among the very sad.
