From: Emily
To: Dru

Things That Really Irk My Pickle About Living in England

* The school uniform
* Piddlington-on-the-weld (I will forever be known as Emily from Piddlesville.)
* Marmite (It’s yeast sludge! GACK!)
* The ghost in my underwear drawer (Spectral hands fondling my bras — enough said!)

Things That Keep Me From Flying Home to Seattle for Good Coffee

* Aidan (Hunkalicious!)
* Devon (Droolworthy? Understatement of the year!)
* Fang (He puts the num in nummy!)
* Holly (Any girl who hunts movie stars with me—and Oded Fehr will be mine—is a friend for life.)
* Über-coolio Polo Club (Where the snogging is FINE!)
