  • Yep. I’m one. What’s the cure? Lipton teabags?

    I don't want to be cured. I didn't even know there was a name for it before today although I have seen the word before.

  • Have you tried nuking? ;)

    I love the UK but I'm from here so I don't think that counts? Depending on which definition ... :)

    In what way are you one? Want to vacation in England?

    I love all things British. That's the definition of Anglophile. Honestly I wish I could live in
    England for a bit. Is there anyone in England or the U.K. That would rather be in the USA? I've been asked more than once on the forum if I was British. So I must be doing something right.

    Not really thought about it. The countries I would like to live for a while would be Australia India or China. China and India for their healthy lifestyle. I worked with a few Indians and they were telling me the best foods to eat to help ie lose weight or help with cholesterol. Also they were very hard working.

    If it makes you feel any better I used to think you were British. Im not sure what I was basing this on, possibly the Dr. Who pic, but when I found out how close to home you really were I was surprised.

  • When I first saw this thread I was half asleep and first thought no I’m not till I looked again. I can’t print here what I thought it was because of filters. :lol:

    Okay, just checking. That would be the definition.

    I'm definitely not one. If anything, whatever the Canadian version is called. Half of the great actors are from there, and most of the great comedians. Canada sounds cool....but I know they have regressive problems, too.

    Really I don't "love" anything. Yes, I live a sad life where I can't wish to be elsewhere or someone else. Makes running away from my sad life harder. :p

    I'm pretty Anglophilic -- many of my favorite shows are British and I read a lot of English authors. Love scones and clotted cream.

  • Definitely an Anglophile....Born and bred there until 2007, when I moved to US.
    I do, honestly, miss a lot about England...Although I am really happy here.
    We might speak the same language but there are a lot of differences between England and US.
    Although, having said that we speak the same language isnt completely true...even after 11 years I will still occasionally say something that completely throws my husband because he hasnt heard it before.
    I agree, I love scones and clotted cream. The clotted cream that I ate in Devon and Cornwall was so thick and yellow...delicious.

  • @SquirrelLadd Cream Teas are just one of the many great things about living in Cornwall :D
    I know what you mean about the differences though, I still have to think carefully when I am writing some of my posts that I wanted highlighted in colour that I have to remember to write the U.S. spelling of the word. ;)
    We moved from Bristol to Cornwall almost 8 years ago and we love living here, I couldn’t imagine living anywhere else.

  • Yes and no.

    Yes, because I've always been very drawn to England. No, because I feel the same about a handfull of other countries.
  • @Muhsterino ....We nearly always took our holidays in either Devon or Cornwall when I was a kid. Kept that tradition for a few years with my own children. I love Cornwall....Feels like you are entering a completely different time....beautiful, quaint little towns, gorgeous beaches...and did I mention those yummy cream teas....lol.
    I still often forget about the slight spelling differences, all those years being taught one way is tough to go against :D
