The British Tag

I saw this tag on InTheFrow and decided I had to do it.

1. How many cups of tea do you have a day? + How many sugars?

I have days where I don't drink tea and then other days I'll make two cups at a time. When I'm drinking regular tea I don't take sugar or milk and tend to just leave the bag in (weird, I know).
I drink a lot of fruit teas but I don't think that's necessarily a British thing. This is my current favourite.

2. Favourite part of your roast
I don't eat roasts a lot but I'd probably say mash was my favourite part.

3. Favourite dunking biscuit
Custard creams are just the best.

4. Favourite quintessentially British pastime?
Haha. I googled ideas for this one and came up with my favourite....complaining. I'm such a moaner. I try not to be in a depressing, annoying to be around, kind of way but I do love a good moan.

5. Favourite word?
I use 'same' ALL the time and it's gotten to the point where I don't even think I'm using it ironically.
My favourite word is probably 'wazzock' even though I don't actually say it much.

6. Cockney rhyme slang?
I don't know a lot. I know 'apples and pears' (stairs), 'baker's dozen' (cousin), 'dog and bone' (phone) and a few others. The only one I think I actually use is 'adam and eve' (believe). I do say 'would/do you adam and eve it?' quite a bit.

7. Favourite sweet
Veggie Percy Pigs from M&S.

8. What would your pub be called?
Something about a crown. Maybe just The Crown or The Queen's Crown.

9. No.1 British person
The Queen. Or Julie Andrews.

10. Favourite shop / restaurant
I don't really have a favourite shop or restaurant but I do have a favourite place to eat so I'm changing this question. My favourite place to eat is a café called 'Bosun's Locker' which is right next to the sea on the edge of my town. It's always the place I choose to go for my birthday.

11. What british song pops into your head?
Bohemian Rhapsody and Hey Jude came straight to my mind then.

12. Marmite.
Never tried it but I'd probably guess I'm a hater.

Other than my obsession with the Queen and love of the band Queen, I don't necessarily think my answers make me sound British at all. What do you guys think?
