A few things I love about being in the USA

A few things I love about being in the USA

Old Glory

In no particular order:

– The fact that ABC’s “Good Morning America” show is co-anchored by two women: Diane Sawyer * (63) and Robin Roberts (48);
– The ready availability of cinnamon as a coffee flavouring at Starbucks;
“More” magazine;
– The Rachel Maddow show on MSNBC – who is, of course, also a gay female counterpart to –
Jon Stewart;
Sushi. Yes, you can get it in London but it’s more readily available here, and cheaper;
Sephora – closely followed by –
Nordstrom – and;
– Steve Madden shoes – and;
Old Navy yoga and workout kit;
– Being called “Miss” (or, occasionally, “ma’am”) in shops and restaurants.

I still don’t understand why the Labor Day holiday weekend is apparently the time to buy a mattress on sale, though. What’s all that about?

* and let us hope that Diane is replaced by a similarly strong woman when she moves on in the new year …
