Today I shall be answering the most ‘Top Notch’ and ‘Spiffing’ tag there is, that’s right ‘The British Tag’
I thought it only seemed right that I partake in this cultural question masterpiece.
1. How many cups of tea do you have a day? How many sugars?
Depending on where I am, at work normally about 6 and the sugars varies as I sometimes have green/fruit tea instead of caffeinated. I have 2 sugar in normal tea.
2. Favourite part of your roast?
Roast potatoes, they are one of the parts that never changes really, other veg changes throughout the seasons and somethings you only have depending on what meat you are eating…..parsnips come in a close second though.
3. Favourite dunking biscuit?
Chocolate Hobnobs… great name, my reasoning is that the chocolate melts and the oaty biscuit goes slightly chewy… lush.
4. Favourite quintessentially British pastime?
Sunday evening TV… yep after your roast dinner with which ever family members showed up, you would all set down and watch the tele-box. Normally something like Dad’s Army, Last of the summer wine, Bulls-eye or Heartbeat…. we still do this I am actually typing this upstairs while my parents are watching Top Gear downstairs.
5. Favourite word?
Kerfuffle… how can you not like that word, it’s brilliant although Scoundrel is next in the top 5
6. Cockney rhyme slang?
I don’t know much apart from ‘Dog and Bone- Phone’ or ‘Apple and Pears – Stairs’ but I did some research and found a huge list and have to say the one that made me chuckle quite a bit was ‘Gypsy’s kiss’ – Piss, now i’m not sure if this version of Piss means to relieve ones self or go out on the piss and get drunk but either way I do like it… quite a bit.
7. Favourite sweet?
Either the fizzy cola bottles or those long jelly snakes, I used to put them in the freezer… trust me and then thank me for changing your life in the smallest possible way.
8. What would your pub be called?
I googled pub names and found one that has taken my fancy, only because I had this image from The Aristocats when a drunk goose stumbled out of a restaurant, my pub will be called THE DRUNKEN DUCK
9. No.1 British person?
Stephen Fry… I don’t need to explain this, man is brilliant.
Also Jennifer Saunders, “Fabulous Darling”
10. Favourite shop / Restaurant?
Paperchase….. when I has the money it becons me, also hobby craft is quite a danger when it’s payday.
Nandos for food though, there Beanie burgers are amazing.
11. What British song pops into your head?
Feeder ‘Just a day’ I actually included this in a blog post a few weeks ago, best song.
Ta rah til Wednesday,
