Me again!
I have results for the marmite experiment (if you could call it one)!
Out of 20 people,
15% love marmite (including moi),
80% hate it (unbelievable), and I didn't realise before, but my friend Niaomi (love2quote) hasn't actually tasted the delicacy before!
Fine, fine, it's not a 'delicacy'. Come on, forgive me; I'm allowed some creative freedom, surely!

The poll has closed *dramatic music* so I'm going to be writing a blog soon questioning wether or not most British people drink tea!
See you guys soon,
PS I apologise for such a short entry, and after such a lengthy period of time; I've been under brutal attack from the dreaded homework, the amount of which has suddenly increased due to the new school year.

Yes, it's me again!
Unfortunatley, this isn't a proper blog- just an update.
Sorry I couldn't write a post yesterday- I was at a party with Noor- and as a result I'm utterly zonked right now, so I won't be able to write much today either!
Sorry- don't worry, I'll write as soon as possible!
PS Thank you for unblocking the page, blogger people! :3

Hello, fellow humans!
I'm back! I hope you liked the last post- I sacrificed a lot for that (my frineds still haven't forgiven me for trying to measure their eyebrows)!

There haven't been many votes on the poll- ok, one vote, so I'm going to keep it up for a little while longer.
Meanwhile, I'm going to be talking about marmite.
In the advert, it says "you either love it, or hate it". Unlike most promotional statements (no, 'pink cleaning wash'- thing, you didn't remove the tomato stain from my shirt- let alone 'anything' !) , I can't seem to find anything untruthful about it.
Including myself, only 6 people I know love marmite, and everyone else I know doesn't.
That's pretty much all the information I have- I'm sending out an email to a bunch of people asking them their views on the spread, and i'll post the results as soon as they're in!

From now on, I'm going to be doing a 'ponder' every time I publish a new post- random questions that you can answer in the comments if you want to!
Today's ponder:
What would you do differently if you knew nobody would judge you?


PS When I went online today, I saw that Blogger has put this page under examination, because I might've 'violated the blogger rules". If anyone from Blogger is reading this, then I appologise- I wasn't breaking the rules on purpose- whatever I say on here isn't meant to be offensive at all!
I can see how something about stereotypes can easily be seen as offensive, but I'm doing this purely out of interest; I have no intention of hurting anyone's feelings.
Readers, don't worry, I'll still be posting blogs on here- you can still access the page!

Giant Eyebrows-?

Hello, it's me again!
I'm going to begin the series with a stereotype that I'd actually never heard of before- that British people have unusually large eyebrows.

I have been inspecting people's eyebrows (well, staring at them), much to their surprise, and I have noticed that they are quite big!
To confirm my hunch, I approached my friends with a ruler and asked them "Please can I measure your eyebrows?". I don't think they fully appreciated the importance of my task. All of them ran away, baying with laughter. That is, all except Noor, who simply sat by her computer and uttered in a dead monotone: "yup.". Hooray- someone agreed to participate in my highly important experiment! It's not as though she just said yes because she was mesmerised by the computer screen and didn't actually catch a single word I said. When I approached her about it later, she looked at me as though I was a nitwit and walked away.
I'm sure it's just a phase.
I know she really wants to have her eyebrows measured.
I know it.

Well, that's all the information I have presently!
I'll update soon!

PS- My twin Kitty said that this blog was a "really awful idea". 
Wow, such a supportive friend!
Kitty, if you're even bothering to read this, then look:
I have 8 WHOLE PAGE VIEWS! *walks off happily*

Welcome to my blog!

Hello! I'm a massive fan of Hetalia, and have always nurtured an interest in stereotypes. I used to believe firmly that all these judgements had no foundation whatsoever, and thought they were just offensive. I'm English, you see, and you are probably already aware that there are innumerable amounts of stereotypes surrounding British people. It was only recently that I was exposed to the humorous side of stereotypes. This sudden change of perspective made me wonder if there was indeed any truth behind all the rumours, and so I decided to set up this blog!
On here I'll be putting stereotypes to the test- I've put up a poll so you can choose which one you'd like to read about next!
I hope you enjoy this blog!
Tabby Kirkland Jones (Hetalia fans, please forgive my pen name!)
