Christmas In London (via National Geographic)

Being in Britain

has taught me many things.

The art of milk with my tea.

(English breakfast? yes. Earl Grey? no, just lemon. Herbal or green? no.)

The appropriate weather to wear

my wellies in... and not to wear them...

(walks in the country? yes. site seeing in the city? no.)

What's so magical about sticky toffee pudding...


where to eat

a really delicious one.)

I've also learned to play it cool.

The Brits are great at that...

they famously coined "the stiff upper lip,"

and man- they know how to compose themselves.


But today,

I'm going to be a total American.

A really obnoxious American, at that.

Because I can't play this cool at all....

I'm on

with a big fancy quote

about Christmastime in London.

National Geographic, people!
