Lol - I'm glad you did this meme too, because I thought I was the only Brit doing it and I was getting so confused with my answers! I was wondering whether anyone else says 'goose pimples' or whether that was some odd eccentricity of mine - so I'm glad I'm not the only one! :-) And we really don't have metal lunch boxes, do we - I was beginning to wonder if we did and I had just been very unobservant! :-)
