We can't be silent
'Cause they might be giants
And what're we gonna do unless they are?

I'm (all visa interviews allowing) emigrating and leaving this country around the start of April 2013. This is fairly daunting. It means I have a little over three months left in this country. If you're from the USA, tell me one thing that anyone...

""Asian" usually refers to Chinese/Japanese/Korean/Vietnamese/Thai/etc, not South Asians (Indians)"

That's actually pretty good to know.

If you say "spanner" no one will have the faintest notion what you are referring to. Wrench is 'Merican.

The multitude of bacon varieties available in any decent English butchers is no-existent here. It's all belly bacon or "Canadian" back bacon.

Ordering a Scotch in the US is a pleasant surprise. None of that 5th of a jil nonsense. Much cheaper, too.

The US is vast. Try to settle in to a region and treat it as a European country.

Avoid California unless you are independently wealthy.

I am engaged, and I will be marrying my fiance on the 4th of May 2013, at which time I will be emigrating permanently to the United States Of America. Specifically, Brookings SD.

I never come here any more, but for those who still care or are curious, there's that! smile

Randy Newman... I'm seeing him on Tuesday. It's a shame that he has such a tough crowd in this video, because it's a WONDERFUL song.

Bollocks, forgot to cancel my account in time. Looks like I'm here for another month, guys...

It appears as though my account expired. I have renewed for a month, just so that I don't disappear without saying goodbye. I think my time here has run its course. I've met a lot of great people and good friends through this site though, so I hope a few of you will stay in touch.

Oh it's too late for me. We text, we talk, we play MMORPGs together... there is no song to stop that from happening. But I do like the track you posted.

Okay, so last night England won the Six Nations, but they did not get the Grand Slam. I was under the impression that Wales were playing for 2nd (to beat England, they'd have had to have beaten France yesterday by 27 points...) Come full time, the points difference was calculated and Wales actually came fourth.

As a result, I asked Jamie (my friend, and...

As of an hour and a half ago, I have officially gone for a whole week without smoking.

I can't remember when I last did that.

It's HELL. Not gonna cave though.
