    Yeah Surrey is a bit posh, if you like horses and a bit of gamble its home to one of the biggest events. I'm sure you'll love it. I would be wetting myself with joy if I earnt the money you will be getting, us country boys down here in the south west are lucky to get a 1/4 of that for your average joe wage. So you'll have plenty to blow at the Derby on the horses and you can use that American charm to tell the ladies they have nice fannies..................

    They offered me 4,550 GBP per month, is that good?
    Unless is costs 4,650 GBP per month to live there, I'd say yes.

    You've never met a girl from Surrey... ba-dum cha Thank you thank you here all week be sure to tip your waitress.

    Some more words to get you acclimated. Car-related terms first, since these might be more important on a daily basis:
    petrol - gas
    bonnet - hood
    boot - trunk
    number plate - licence plate
    indicator - turn signal
    tarmac - asphalt
    diversion - detour
    dual carriageway - four-lane
    slip road - ramp
    wheelclamped - booted

    Food-related:
    biscuit - cookie
    scone - biscuit
    chips - fries, although often fatter (what you might call steak fries?)
    crisps - chips
    aubergine - eggplant
    courgette - zucchini
    green/yellow/red pepper - bell pepper
    rocket - arugula
    broad bean - fava bean
    butter bean - lima bean
    spring onion - scallion
    swede or swede turnip - rutabaga
    stewing steak - braising beef
    bun or fairy cake - cupcake, although that terms is starting to be used over here
    fillet steak - tenderloin or filet mignon*
    mince - hamburger or ground meat
    icing - frosting
    icing sugar - powdered sugar
    cornflour - cornstarch
    plain flour - AP flour
    self-raising flour - cake flour?
    wholemeal - whole-wheat
    porridge - cooked oatmeal (served salty in some parts, but may still be eaten with honey!)
    plain chocolate - dark chocolate**
    Yorkshire pudding - similar to a popover
    candy floss - cotton candy
    pastry case - pie shell
    rasher - slice of bacon
    dessert - sweet course
    pudding or pud - sweet course (but also used for some savoury things like white and black pudding)
    black pudding - a type of blood sausage
    greaseproof paper - wax paper

    *You may find steak over here disappointing as the general quality in the US is higher than some high-quality steak over hear because of our different standards for marbling; there's essentially no equivalent over here for USDA Prime. However, most of our cattle is fed on grass which should give better flavour than corn-fed beef.

    **You'll generally find the quality of chocolate this side of the pond to be much higher than in the US, particularly if you buy stuff made on the Continent. And high-quality chocolate has become more affordable over here in recent years so you don't have to pay a premium price for decent stuff.

    Lots more good stuff on this page.

    P.S. Further to cassar's point about fanny, be careful how you use the word bum in the UK - it can be vulgar or innocent depending on context!

    Yes Non of that Hershey's Sh*te.
    Only had it once, tasted like exactly like how a backed up Sewer smells.
    Foul stuff.

    Go for Green & Blacks.....As once described to me by a female colleague "Wow, an orgasm in my mouth!", then realised what she'd said.

    Welcome to jolly old blighty!, if that rate of pay is your take home (after tax) then you'll do nicely I should think (though I've no idea what living expenses are like in Surrey.....) and I can't resist it any longer......

    As opposed to her good old English fanny!

    If that's a bit beyond the mark let me know and I'll delete it - made me laugh (in my head) though.

    Oh and our 'Salt Beef' is what you call 'Corned Beef', I don't know what you might call our Corned Beef..? and make sure you try Marmite (sparingly at first, and by spraingly I mean spread about as thinly as you would if you were layering a mini), I'm a seasoned Marmite professional and can ladle in on in lumps myself.

    Right with you on Hershey's. I told Liz that it leaves a sickly after-taste. It's only then that she realised it does.

    Oh, and I'm off back to the USA on monday for 3 months.

    Yeah American sweets like skittles and m&m's are great but their chocolate bars leave alot to be desired, Hersheys is particularly shit. Cadburys is the best. The good old recipe before they were taken over by Kraft (spits).

    On a brighter note can we put your name down for Games Day 2012?
