Oh, you’ve been in America for a while now, right? How do you like it? Is it as weird as television implies?

Eh.  It’s fine.  Everything is cheap.  Including gin and tonic.  But then, in Auckland everything is expensive so I don’t exactly have a good baseline.  The thing about Americans is that they take everything very seriously and are extremely bad at sarcasm and irony, so you have to be careful what you say to them.  Which is also a good thing sometimes, because you can actually make Americans care about things, bless them, where New Zealanders are just like “she’ll be right mate” and remain stunningly apathetic.
