    I'm biased towards the British Isles, I have an idealistic picture of England, oh, England, my Lionheart, so everything. I haven't even been to England yet, hehe, maybe when I have I'll have a more nuanced set of ideas.

    haha, yeah there are some weird girls here with strange facial expressions, the food's not bad but most of the best is foreign food, of course, Chinese and that. There's a multitude of accents here, I can only hope I hide my silly accent when I talk!

    What's there to hate about England? Well the people from London can get nasty and The Weather sucks often and then there is the pound (if you're converting from american cash, you'll understand me.) But anyhow here goes my list - Samuel Smith's Bitter, English Ale (in general), Walkers crisps, Fish and Chips, Accent, the all too exciting History, Britcoms, my dying bride, anathema/antimatter, old paradise lost, the quaint english towns and country, sexy female british accents, well preserved historical sites, tea and so much else.
