I was looking at the visitors location Map and suddenly realised just how many visitors I’m getting this days from all over the world. Which is nice as it no longer feels I am just talking to myself all of the time and also scary in equal measure.
For those of you who haven’t noticed I have added two more blogs to my ‘blogs I read list’. Tri-Ragnar, which is written by a work colleague, who started the blog to document his preparations for running a Triathlon. He’s about as far away from me on the scale of fitness as it’s possible to be right now. The 2nd blog is “I’m so funny” by Alice who you may noticed has been leaving a lot of comments lately (thanks Alice ). I recommend you go and visit the blogs if you have the time.
Alice did ask on her blog if Saxon is my real name. No it isn’t in case anyone was wondering. It’s a case of all name have been changed to protect the innocent (and guilty) kind of thing.
I have inspired Alice to start a new feature on her blog called “ English Ed and Et #1”, as after reading my blog she has found it very interesting the differences between the meanings and usage of some common English words and American words. So if any of you guys have any suggestions to some words that we use in the UK which they use something else entirely please let me know so we can post some definitions for Alice and other US readers. I thought of a couple more today for here. English words on the left, US meanings on the right.
Rubbish bin or bin ( Trash can)
Rubbish ( trash)
Sweets ( candy)
Chips (French fries)
Speaking of sweets. Oh I miss Chocolate! I found myself standing in front of one of the vending machines at work for a very long time fighting my better judgement. Fortunately I managed to resist temptation. I should, baring the risk of giving into temptation finally reach my first target of loosing a stone in weight by the end of this week. So that should mean the first of my bribes, erh I mean cash reward from Grumpy and tap dance.
