    Very amusing, Andrew.

    Not amusing merely, but wonderfully accurate (even, what, seventy, eighty years on?). I saw precisely this scene in a famous Edinburgh club only two nights ago.

    I don’t know, they could be native-born Pennsylvanians. We can squeeze a nickel till the buffalo… you know what I mean.

    You know, Jamie never did pay that bill.

    You really are a prick, boy.
    The more I read of your pretentious blog, the more I realise how sad you are….
    Perhaps you should have spent more of your time and energy studying for your degree, rather than trying to impress with your ridiculous reflections – that way you might have been able to secure a 2:1, rather than a laughable 2:2… What a moron…! Even a clown with a busy schedule and a strict ring master could get a 2:1 from St.Andrews. You mention how your conversation with equally moronic friend in Broons consisted of the ‘usual’ – how ridiculous Britain is, and how ‘great’ the States are. Why, in which case, do you insist on parading your insecurities and your longing to be taken for a true English gentleman, by wearing tweed and boasting about drinking port and whisky? Your fascination with the English upper classes is nothing short of pathetic… You are an absolute prat, boy..What do you think you look like with all your idiot mates, desperately trying to look like something you are quite clearly not? You are a about as fake as your future boyfriend’s nails. Despite your attempts to come across as an intellectual with this s****y blog which is nothing short of unadulterated bunkem… you cannot even get a measly 2:1 in a subject you pretend to enjoy..Get a life, boy, and face up to the fact that you will never be part of the British upper class – I suggest you learn to accept who you are…….

    Andrew combines the best of both the Old and New Worlds. There is much to admire in both England and America, and he has merely attempted and dare I say suceeded to emulate the best aspects of both of those countries. Unlike most people his age, Andrew is interested in history and real culture. His writing is elegant and pleasant in contrast to the poorly written nonsense that characterises most webpages. True, Andrew’s scores were less than perfect, but grades do not always reflect intellect. As for moronic friends, all of them are doing quite well and their numbers include bankers, lawyers, and doctoral students.
