god save the queen????

I got suckered into another one of those internet quizzes that I love. this time the quest was to discover 'what english speaking country are you?' - I answered honestly and quite honestly this time I'm very surprised with the result. truth be told, I expected to turn out as canada (given that I absolutely love so many things canadian, not to mention so many places in canada - the provinces of british columbia and nova scotia take my breath away, the great cities of vancouver and montreal are on my top ten list), then there's the gaspe peninusla, and so on and so forth. but noooooo according to this quiz (which I discovered through glenwood's blog I would be england. oh my! very interesting....so what are you!!

You Belong in the UK

A little proper, a little saucy.
You're so witty and charming...
No one notices your curry breath
What English Speaking Country Are You?

Hi Kimy,

I'm so glad you enjoyed my ``Hail Merry'' post.

You love Marmite? Hmmm, that means you love Vegemite.

You love curry?

Hmmmm - you're an Aussie then!!

Evidently I belong in Australia, which is a little worrying given I plan to move to the UK...

Apparently I belong in Britain (or a zoo, as the bumper stickers say). Since I am somehting of an Anglophile, it's not surprising. It's all based on my enjoyment of Stephen Fry's column in The Guardian.

Because I learnt at school British idioms
British speaking with a strong French accent

I've just done the test. I don't believe it: I'm an Englishman living in France and it tells me I belong in New Zealand!

these quizzes although fun are quite perplexing! dd an aussie, now who would have guessed!!

david - haven't tried vegemite, heard it's similar to marmite, but is it the same? I'm sure I'd love it too! have always wanted to travel to the land down under and have a friend from college who moved to melbourne in the mid 1980s and has been after me for 20 years to come visit!

len - and maybe we are brits also for our love of all things monty phython! spam, spam, spam, spam!!!

cergie ;oD

av - well dd found out he belongs in new zealand! as I said perplexing! but 'no worries mate' you will do thrive and do well anywhere!

dd - a wonder how maurice would do? eek!

Apparently I'm a New Zealander. Having been there, I'm quite happy with that answer!
