More USA observations.

Having a wonderful time in the US. Wishing TH was here with me. I've been in France for 2 and a half years and have come home 4 times without TH. He came home once without me. It's time we come home together.

Here are some more of my observations from this trip:

1. I've never seen so many Toyota Prius cars on the road ever.
2. Hummer owners are still driving those things with gas prices being so high.
3. I put too much gas in my rental car before returning it and actually asked for a refund. Never done that before but with the price of gas...I'm not that generous. And don't like Enterprise that much.
4. Bagels are darn good. I miss them.
5. Cupcakes are darn good. I miss those too.
6. Smart cars exist in the US. But I have yet to see one. For some reason, I thought there was a law that all cars in the US had to be of a certain size and Smart cars didn't cut it.
7. Pierce Brosnan can't sing worth a can of beans. See: "Mamma Mia" movie.
8. I get a discount for bringing in my own grocery bags to our local supermarket. Now what shall I do with those 5 cents...
9. I'm still surprised to hear everyone speaking English with American accents. This always gets me.

Hah! Yes, fro-yo places are taking over the US. Weird but true...but you get to eat Bertillon, so you should feel bad for us Americans, forced to eat Pinkberry instead.
