fantastic friday

January 13, 2012

If I could live anywhere in the world it would be England. Although if I actually lived there I might change my mind. I’ve never been there and having never been there I have all these romantic sort of notions of what it would be like. Romance doesn’t necessarily mean reality! But if there is anything I love about England it’s their phrasing. Oh Downton Abbey, how I wish we talked like those people. Wouldn’t it be so much more pleasant to walk through life declaring “that’s about the size of it” or telling my children “badly done Emma!” (well that would only work if one of them was named Emma and I had a British accent.) But my favorite is the word “fantastic.” My husband and I watched an episode of House Hunters International in Britain and all the woman kept saying was “this is fantastic!” and it stuck in my head. Well, actually after 20 minutes of her declaring everything was “fantastic” we were greatly annoyed, but all that aside… I’m hoping to start a trend of writing here on Friday about fantastic finds around the web. (Only when you read the word “fantastic” you have to say it in a British accent.)
