The British Tag

I got tagged by the lovely Layla to do the British Tag, and I hereby tag all my British people, because I can't be bothered writing all of you down, but I know you're there!

1. How many cups of tea do you have a day? How many sugars?
I feel like the anti-Brit when I say I don't actually drink tea. I don't mind berry tea, that's alright, but I'm not a tea drinker, I'm sorry.

2. Favourite part of your roast?
Aaargh. First off, I'd say you haven't lived if you haven't tried my mum's Sunday roast, I legitimately wait the entirety of Sunday in anticipation of my roast. It'll have to be a toss-up between yorkshire puddings and pork crackling, but I love pretty much every component.

3. Favourite dunking biscuit?
Rich teas or plain old digestives.

4. Favourite quintessentially British pastime?
Complaining about the weather, does that count? I wouldn't say it's my favourite, but I do it a lot!

5. Favourite word?
Probably 'bloody', because it sounds like such a British swear word to me, I can't imagine an American saying bloody if they aren't impersonating a British person. Also, it's so versatile; bloody can be used to describe something postiviely ('that was bloody brilliant') or negatively ('this has been the bloody worst day'), and I just love it.

6. Cockney rhyming slang?
I know what it is, but I don't use it. Apart from 'Pete Tong' (wrong) which I can't figure out where I picked that one up from. None of my friends even know what it means.To put it in context, you would say 'It's all gone Pete Tong', in place of 'It's all gone wrong'.

7. Favourite sweet?
Haribos, or Fruit Pastilles.

8. What would your pub be called?
Something traditional, like The Queen's Head or something like that.

9. Number 1 British person?
Eek, that's not fair. I'd have to say Prince Harry, what's more number 1 than royalty?

10. Favourite shop/restuarant?
Favourite grocery shop would be Sainbury's, favourite specialist shop would be Boots probably. Favourite restaurant, the pub across the road, the March Hare.

11. What British song pops into your head?
Awake My Soul - Mumford & Sons

12. Marmite?
Never tried it, don't know if I will!
