I Think I'm Turning Anglo-ese, I Really Think So

(I know there is no such word as Anglo-ese, but British doesn't work with the '80's song title)

Over the past couple of years, my family and I have become completely addicted to British t.v.  Doctor Who, Robin Hood, Downton Abbey, and Top Gear (my kids talk about putting the groceries in the boot, and have even mentioned the windscreen). 

I've been trying to fall asleep without the t.v. on, since the light is bad for the sleep cycle, and maybe many other things, but in order to have some noise, I've been loading the Netflix app on my cell phone, and playing Downton Abbey with the screen off.

I'm finding that when I wake up, I have a British accent for about five minutes.  When I demonstrated to my husband, he said "well, at least it is like the housemaid."  I can only he meant Anna and not Miss O'Brien.  :P

I started Life on Mars yesterday.

I've been tempted with that one.

I checked out Torchwood. Um NO.

Yeah, I'm not touching Torchwood. Jury still out on Life on Mars. I like it, but it's too gritty to have on w/ SK around.
