The first time I saw people out in public with huge curlers in their hair was on Christmas Eve at Asda — there were quite a few women and prepubscent girls shopping in their pajamas and curlers. I’ve since seen this phenomenon several times (the curlers, not the pajamas). I was rather amused the first time around but hey, good for them for having the self-confidence to be in public without being completely made up. On the other hand, if there’s one thing I’ve noticed about many of the females in Liverpool (besides their propensity for topknots), it’s that they’re quite artificial, with layers of make-up caked on, spray tans and wearing the latest fashions (shiny and printed leggings are both in style now, yes?), often with mile-high heels. Oh, and that they’re absolutely impractical when it comes to dressing for cold weather, preferring style over warmth. But this is just the Canadian in me talking.

    It’s not just the Canadian in you talking. Many Europeans see it like this: many British girls wear fake-tan, skimpy outfits and high heels no matter what the weather – and we all wonder why.

  2. Oh good, I’m not the only one who thinks some British girls are strange! And here I thought it was just confined to Liverpool!
