I was in a cafe with an American friend of mine, and an American sat down next to us and asked if we had come to Dublin "with Groupon". There are Groupons for that?! Uh, no, we live here.

One huge perk of living outside the US is that I no longer have to pretend to care about the Super Bowl. And, for local sports that everyone else cares about, I can plead foreign ignorance.

At improv recently we had a set of scenes with accents, which alarmed me since there are very few accents I can do convincingly. And then my group got given "northern Irish" as an accent, which I could probably pick out by now but I can't really do Irish, or Scottish, or the weird mixture that is northern Irish to my ears. So I did a terrible half-Scottish accent, and yelled "jayyysus fookin' chroist" when an imaginary gear fell on my head, and this went over well. Sorry, Ireland, for making a mockery of your swears.
