The British Tag

I stumbled across this Tag while reading Rikki's blog and i knew i had to do it myself. I'm all about being British and i'm proud of where i come from so this one was definitely for me.

1. How many cups of tea do you have a day? + How many sugars?

I absolutely despise tea. The smell alone makes me feel nauseous let alone the taste. I'm a coffee drinker and i drink alot of it so let's go with how many cups of coffee etc. Well i'll have 2 coffees in the morning as i can't function properly until i've had my fix of caffeine. I like it really strong ( at least 2 spoonfuls of coffee ), the tiniest amount of milk and half a spoon of sugar. I might aswell just have it straight black really.

2. Favourite part of your roast

There is no favourite part to a roast dinner as the whole thing is a piece of beautiful edible art. The most obvious part would be the meat but as much as i love it, i have to say that the gravy makes the dish. You can't have a roast without gravy but it has to be the one my mum makes, it's incredibly good.

3. Favourite dunking biscuit

I've never dunked biscuits in my life as the thought of it makes me feel sick. When i hear someone talk about a dunking that's gone wrong and it leaves a mushy residue at the bottom, i feel physically ill. Keep the biscuits seperate!

4. Favourite quintessentially British pastime?

It would have to be chilling out in a pub garden on a sunny day.

5. Favourite word?

Ridiculous. It's a word that i use more than most to describe things wether good or bad. That's the problem with the English language, once you find a word you like, you don't realise how much you use it in conversation.

6. Cockney rhyme slang?

Well i'm not a cockney but my favourite rhyming slang would have to be jimmy riddle which i think means going for a piss? Lol 

7. Favourite sweet/ chocolate

Us brits are bloody good at sweet/chocolate making and we have some brilliant goodies but my all time favourite old school sweets would have to be Rhubarb and Custard. They scream British to me and taste so bloody good! Oh and cola cubes...and galaxy ripple...and maltesers...shut up Kate.

8. What would your pub be called?

The thought of having my own pub worries me for many reasons but if i had the opportunity to name my very own public house it would be called ' The Karty ' which is a mix of mine and Carl's names

9. No.1 British person

 Prince Harry is an absolute legend. He's now 4th in line to the throne and he's such a playboy! He's rebelling against royal life and i love him for it. Also Mick Jagger is a hero

10. Favourite shop / restaurant

This is kind of awkward because so many shops have been bought by foreign companies but i have to say that i have a real soft spot for Hugh Rice the Jewelers. I love my bling and that shop has some beautiful pieces...shame i can't afford any of them

11. What British song pops into your head?

Oh Bla Di - The Beatles

12. Marmite.

I'm in the 'hate' section for Marmite i'm afraid. My mum and brother absolutely love the stuff but i think it's vile. I have tried it and it made me sneeze so i take that as a sign that my body rejected it.

I'm pretty sure that all my fellow brits will be interested in doing this tag so i tag all of you :)
