Default Newbie here

i'm new here...and i'm not british. i am an american living in UK, but will be coming back to the US (california) when my visa expires (or sooner) and would like to make some brit friends that i might be able to hangout with when i go back to the US.

i quite enjoy the brits and getting to know the culture. i'm sure i'll miss some aspects of the UK when i move back, but who knows, maybe i'll find myself here again someday.

Let's see. What's your opinion of not drinking beer ice cold?

in hot weather like it is right now, i would definitely go for ice cold.

but on "normal" days, i don't mind not so cold lager.

is this a test?

Hi Brit, I'm American as well. I married a Brit and got transported to the UK, we're back now, near Seattle. I'm orginally from Southern California though (all over). I miss the UK, very much at times. How long have you lived in the UK? Be prepared for counter culture shock, its very real. Well unless you really want to be back here.
