Elsewhere, again.

Well, that was a big success. Apparently you all dislike America. Or else everyone has stopped reading since I stopped posting. It's funny how that works.

Since you probably want to move to another country, why not go over and read my guest post at Katie's blog. And don't forget to scroll through her archives because it will make you happy that you don't need a chest x-ray in order to legally enter your workplace.

I was going to write a post, but I've been busy. It might take until this weekend. Good thing, because it might take me that long these days to figure out what it is that I actually do like about this place!

I read it and I loved your post. I just couldn't think of anything to say that wasn't "Amen! Yes! I am happy to be here!" Probably because I was off puking somewhere. (But not today! Look at me go!)

haha, I starred your post in reader, but didn't really have a good response. My thought is that the US in not in any way objectively better. It's simply more comfortable to a person who is from there. Myself included. But I ask myself if easy comfort is all I really want. Or do I want vacation time and reasonable health care, but while having to deal with German all the time and missing Americana? It's hard to say.

Great post as always! I've been living in Europe a longtime. I have to be honest-I don't miss the US. I miss family and friends but not the US.

I didn't mean to sound so passive-aggressive there but apparently it worked! (Theo has some great parenting in his future, doesn't he?)

And just to clarify, I didn't mean that America is _better_ than anywhere else, just that there are plenty of reasons to like it here.
There are reasons to dislike it too, (especially if you have money in the stock market right now, yowza) but that's a different topic.
