Top ten list of reasons I love America

This was my gift to Maria for her birthday, I am so proud of it I wanted to "have it published" (in no particular order):
  • Cheap mixed drinks
  • Water brought to your table in restaurants without having to ask or pay for it
  • Public Broadcast Radio
  • HBO
  • Optimism
  • The Yellow house (that's our new one - yes)
  • Climate
  • Size (of the "market" (be it for jobs, services, our business, the arts, etc.))
  • Friendliness
  • Madness - and lots of it
  • Straightforwardness
  • Service
  • Early releases of independent movies - the day of preferential treatment of blockbusters seems to be long gone
  • Mexican food
  • Family - if you are family and don't live in the USA, please don't feel offended, just move here;) (it is of course compared to England, where we have a lot of really good friends, but sadly NO family)
  • Convenience
  • Dramatic weather
  • Cheap consumer goods

See what I don't understand is how a list of why Torbjorn loves it far far away from England could possibly be percieved as my birthday present?
