Where am I?

It's 7.32 AM on a SATURDAY morning. Why am I up? No, I'm not asking you. I'm moaning to myself. We have a match through at Glasgow at 10 and it takes an hour or so to get there. So why am I meeting my team members at 8 am? Cos last time we got lost going through and an hour journey took two. So coach told us to meet at 8. Clever.

So here I am with my porridge and soya milk, trying to be a good girl. The British do call soy (as in milk and sauce) soya, which I have adopted, to the amusement of an American pal here. I am willing to try a lot more British phrases than most Americans, for several reasons. I'm married to a Brit, so I hear them all the time. I don't have loads of American friends here, who would probably harrass me about saying these things. And I also teach in local schools and I don't want to confuse the little buggers any more than I already am with my American accent. When I first arrived, they all wanted me to talk and say something in 'American'. My sister did the same thing to the Boy when she first met him.

Oh, go to this website! Apparently this guy is bartering his way to a house, and he started with only one red paperclip. Pretty amazing. When I see stuff like this (you know, like the guy with the million dollar webpage), I think, 'Damn, I'm an idiot. What am I doing instead of this this stuff up?'
