I know that, last year, I rambled on about the politeness of Americans but I just have to re-emphasise it: they are sooooo extraordinarily impossibly delectably marvellously ...polite! It's all "Yes Ma'am, No Ma'am, Excuse me Ma'am, Sorry Ma'am, Are you all right Ma'am". Even though - completely because of vanity - I would rather be "Miss" instead of "Ma'am", I can't really complain because Americans always come across as caring. If I'm the one to tread on a toe, the American will still apologise ... wow. I don't know if it's just something to do with Happy-Americans-On-Holiday-in-Las-Vegas but I like to think it's how they are all the time. Congrats, guys.
Though I spent two weeks in Las Vegas, I did spend three days in Los Angeles. I had been on a Universal Studios tour before and I adored it - so theme-park-exciting. But this time I went on a tour to Warner Bros Studios where the visitor is more into seeing a working studio. They were televising one show "Hart of Dixie "(TV2, 6 pm Sundays) and we wandered around the sets. I don't watch the show but one of the stars is Mallory Moye.
What I looooooooved was that we suddenly arrived at the set of Merlotte's Bar and Grill from the tv series "True Blood". I had read Charlaine Harris's 'Southern Vampire' books before the stories got turned into a tv series so it was a real thrill to see the set.. Above is a pic.
