Love the accents, and the whole London punk thing. Sometimes I take my anglophilia too far…. like, I start talking in a British accent and can’t stop!

Yep. I often wish I were British.

London is by far my favorite city, I’ve been there once and am always telling Fiance I need to go back SOON. I love British humor, one of my history professors is British and he is hilarious. Half the class doesn’t understand it though. And I love Top Gear.

Add in the accent, Harry Potter, the scenery, the history, the accent, the currency, fish and chips, soccer/football, and the accent, and once again i’m wishing I were British.

Also the hitch hiker guide/harry potter thing reminded me-Alan Rickman!I could let that man read me a bed time story every night and never get bored!

Ahhh Top Gear, I love that show! *giggle* I love Yorkshire Tea, and teacle tart, I used to enjoy black pudding, but learned that I’m not supposed to eat that, bummer. There’s more things Scottish I could name than British lol. I actually dont have a favorite Doctor, I have enjoyed the show since I was a toddler and never picked a favorite.

@kimbo89: Pierce Brosnan is definitely a close second for me (also my generation) but Sean Connery is just plain awesome!

I’m an Anglophile who also happens to be an English citizen : ). I’m slowly turning my fiance into one.

I’m an Absolutely Fabulous junkie (so excited for the new series!), I love French & Saunders, the Vicar of Dibley, Doctor Who…I could go on and on and on and on…lol.
