Reasons to be British

1. ) Aardman Animations is holding a contest to win tickets to see “A Grand Day Out” at the London Film Festival and attend a special Q&A session with creator Nick Park to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Wallace and Gromit.

2. ) Best junk food ever. Evidence here at Belgian Waffle.

3.) When you adapt a beloved novel for the stage, it is not Margaret freakin’ Atwood. No no. It is Terry Pratchett. AWESOME.

4.) Stonehenge!

5.) World’s greatest museum of art and design. When last we visited, we blagged our way into a champagne reception for the opening of a Chihuly exhibit.

6.) Yorkshire is home to both my father and Rowan yarn. Two of my favourite things!

Here’s a clip that combines design with Wallace and Gromit. (Dad is a bit like Wallace, so maybe throw him in there too.) Cracking contraptions indeed.
