This was meant to be my next instalment of A Slice of Americana, but I am experiencing some technical difficulties as it was to be my first vlog version of the series. I am currently working on it and it should be ready for next week.
If you have any suggestions about iconic food from the USA that I should try, please leave a comment. Sadly, I will not be able to eat any of the fish / shellfish based suggestions that I have received, as I am allergic to those – but thanks for the ideas!
As I cannot bring you the delights of the corn dog as I had hoped, I thought I would share a little of what I have been doing around the web recently . . .
I was busy
reading some blogs writing the next piece for January 2014 when I experienced, what I call, my furry flatmates computer bombing (like a photo bomb, but when a furry flatmate – one dog, two cats - decides to take residence on my computer when I am trying to use it)!
This first happened, and seems to keep happening, whenever I try to read one of my favourite blogs Rhyme and Ribbons. I tweeted Amanda about it as it was just too funny not to share as the dog was the first to do it!

This led me to make a YouTube mini-movie about the behind the scenes of the photographs, as it all started with a standoff about who gets to sit next to the “strange-British-human-who-now-lives-with-us” (or at least that is what I think they call me). Here is the movie!
Whilst being entertained by the furry flatmates (they are called that as they are not my pets, but belong to my human flatmate) I did also manage to have a guest post of mine go live on Leaving Cairo. I wrote about the funny Americanisms I have experienced as a new expat to the USA – to read it, click here.
Well, there you have it, a sort of round-up of what I have been up to recently! What have you been doing or plan to do?
