Default BE Newbie

I’ve lurked for far too long, so I’ve decided its time to leap into the fray !

I’m originally from Surrey, now living in Connecticut because of my work (IT). I’m on an L1 visa at the moment, but am in the process of applying for a green card (which my company is very kindly handling for me).

Situated in posh part of Fairfield county, but I’m not that posh myself. I’m living relatively inexpensively in a duplex - albeit with a truly bizarre neighbour who lives alone, but carries out conversations with himself which I can hear (and am freaked out by) when I’m in the bathroom (very thin shared walls it seems) :scared: .

I’m enjoying the lifestyle that living and working over here allows me to have, although I still miss proper pubs (not something that claims to be a “pub” and turns out to be a bar), Tescos and Angels Delight!

Loving these forums – you don’t know it, but you lot have kept me sane while I’ve been here!

Welcome

Another newbie with a good first post. BE helps a lot with the keeping sane as it's impossible to share good british humour and sarcasm with most americans

Thank you

I am lucky that a few of my co-workers do get sarcasm (by boss for one), but you have to be careful!

I'm actually escaping to the UK for a week in mid August (for work). Can't want to go to Boots and buy the place up (as I seem to do every time I return!).
