-I've watched more Desperate Housewives and Glee since I've been here than I ever did in the States.
-It's great getting to watch soccer on the "telly" whenever I want.
-Some of my host mom's favorite names for me are "Pet", "Chicken", and "Ducky".
-Don't ask someone to "give you a ride", they might get the wrong idea. You "collect" someone, or "give them a lift".
-Fries are "chips" and chips are "crisps".
-A pencil sharpener is a "topper" and "rubbers" are erasers.
What do I miss the most?
Hugs. People don't seem as physically affectionate here and you don't normally see friends hug each other in greeting, especially not the men. Saiorse's pretty much the only one I ever get a hug from, at night before she goes to bed :)
In general, people here have a very good sense of humor and they're constantly slaggin' on each other. There are always plenty of laughs to be had.
