U.S. folk, before yet another of you asks me whether it's "weird" being here for "decolonization/beat England/we beat you day,"* the only weird thing really is that so many of you are obsessed with asking me about it. I'm intrigued by what my answer is supposed to be - am I supposed to take it as a personal affront? I'm planning to bake one of these next year and just throw it at people so that they're so befuddled they forget the question.
Also, please note: you're not even the only country this week to celebrate its independence from the British Empire.
