Boiled Beef and Carrots [Sep. 6th, 2012|08:32 pm]
Douglas Spencer
Yesterday I made boiled beef and carrots, and today we ate it.

After she'd finished eating I said to Julia "I suppose you're familiar with the song."

It turns out she's never heard of the song. Imagine my consternation! Imagine the disruption to my world view! Now I'm worried that my friends are similarly poorly exposed to my culture. Hence, a poll.

But then what do I know I am only dubiously culturally British anyway :-)

[by which I mean "significantly at a superficial level, but less so as you pay more attention"]
