Questions I've been asked more than once

"Are you from California?"
"Do you think Obama will win?"
"I hear that British TV shows are popular in America. Have you seen [TV show I've never heard of]?"
"Excuse me, I'm trying to [outlandish story] and I just need 50p for the bus."
"Don't you love New York? It's so cheap!"
"I love your accent! Are you from California?"
"Ohio? [blank stare]"
"If I give you some money, will you buy me a pack of fags in the off-licence?"
"Where's Ohio? Is it near California?"

Yes. Yes, it is.

If only, if only California was near Ohio.

If only.

Oh man! I so hear you.

My favorite response to "Ohio" though (and this is on the raw footage for the Global Custodian DVD last year):

"Isn't that where Bowling Green is?"

Eric,
I am still quite lame at blogging -- I posted a blog on your July 'cage' post by mistake. Anyway, keep up the good work (by keeping us in good humor) and isn't it fun that you could make up stories about the US and they would likely believe anything you said...within reason, of course. :) (Yeah, Ohio is practically next door to California) Bet you can't wait for the fam to come for a visit! And have I mentioned you have a great mom and I love walking in the park with her? take care, Liz
