First impressions

Thursday, October 26 2006

Some good, some odd and some bad.

The good bit is the endless hot water supply – this is from a girl who have drained a few unsuspected hotwater tanks while taking long showers. The hotwater is real hot, good water pressure and never ending. I think you must have lived in the UK to fully understand why I appreciate this so much.

Everything is bigger here, bigger sink, fridge/freezer, doorways & space in general etc.

The washing machines look odd. I also find it odd (& difficult) to hear the dogs howling during the day.

Some of the bad stuff are things link to the mobile. I get charged for receiving calls! It is much more expensive here and that also goes for broadband 🙁 Another thing is it will cost $1:50 for each go on the washing machine and then another $1:50 if I want to use a dryer.

    You picked one of the most expensive cities in the States. Besides, you’re rich – remember that post about how rich you are? LOL
    On the other hand, you also picked an exciting, vibrant city.

    You’ll get adjusted. When you do, you’ll wonder why you didn’t come here sooner 🙂

    LOL – that was when I had a job. Your Georgey boy wont let me work here remember?
    Already I like it here so I think you will be right (of course!!) that I/we should have this sooner.

    We were charged for recieving calls too a few years ago. Not anymore. Score one for us ;D. Now I know how the Americans make their money lol.

    “Everything is bigger here, bigger sink, fridge/freezer…” I thought everything was big in Texas.

    Texas. It’s a whole other country.

    That was the tag line of a commercial for Texas (for tourism). I’m not sure they realized how funny that actually was.

    LOL that is a funny slogan … and they didn’t see the irony in it???

    Hell – if things are even bigger in Texas … why? I want to see more of the US when I am here. Like Texas and …eee… lesser know states 🙂
