Olivier remembers driving around Saugerties with Charlene, Vern’s wife, and a friend of hers, who begged him over and over to say “hamburger.” He was mystified by the fact that Charlene called Vern “the Incredible Hunk.”Five years later, Olivier found himself in England, a graduate student in mathematics.
Unfortunately, his scholastic English—“Kevin is a blue-eyed boy” had been billed as a canonical phrase—had done little to prepare him for the realities of the language on the ground.
In response toall the crazy photoshopping celeb fails that've been in the news lately, she decided to share her own experience with the annoying trend in an epic #Throwback Thursday post.

So I dunno, maybe it's because I just left image obsessed LA or because I know a little filter can brighten my day just like the next girl. Ashlee, power to you for changing something that didn't make you happy and doing it on YOUR terms ie Not letting some click happy photo editor do it for you P.
Britain’s hundred-and-fifty-five-billion-pound deficit, at eleven per cent of G. The things that fire you up in the morning, that drive you, that you truly believe will make a real difference to the country you love.
