I just obsess over America like there's no tomorrow... have done since Power Rangers when I was 8, lol. Anyway I love US TV and music and movies and the places are beautiful and what not... and shamefully, when I see Americans I flip out like they're friggin' celebrities.
Actually a funny story if I may interslice: Last year a busload of Americans came to our town (poor, pathetic people!) which is a country town, and me and my friends went across the road to a cafe to buy a drink, and were watching them sitting with their luggage and books and what-not (oh yeah, their bus had broken down) and we were REALLY obvious, like loud and gazing out the window forcefully and our convo went like this:.... thankfully, I remember all due to later unforseen trauma:
Me: "Oh my God, AMERICANS! Do you think they'll be weirded out if I go and ask them stuff?"
Kate: (friend) "Yes. Of course they will."
Me: "No they won't. They're nice. They're always nice. They're the nicest ever."
Kate: "Seriously? They're a bunch of wankers. They only think about themselves. Look at them all, reading their books like as if they're still on the bus. I mean don't bother looking at your surroundings or anything."
Me: "Well so what, I love them! If I could marry America, I would."
Then suddenly a girl is kind of near us smiling weirdly across the room. We look just as a flash goes off. Oh, an American girl smiling for a photo near a bunch of her friends, sitting at a table right next to us. Seriously, my hand was an inch from one of the seats. We looked, they looked up at us. So obvious they'd heard our convo.
Me: (frozen) "Quick, pay and let's leave."
Kate: (frozen) "Okay."
Kate then drops the lid of her drink bottle.
Me: "Quickly, pick it up."
Kate: "No. Can't move. Still watching us. Argh. Let's go."
And we rushed out.
Anyway, where was I? Oh yeah, is America really as nice as it seems?? It'd be nice to know. Thanks!
