Accents are officially gorgeous....

Okay, I saw this movie "Trapped" last night (with Charlize Theron, Kevin Bacon, and Stuart Townsend)....

I have fallen in love with accents. Irish accents (Stuart) *sigh* (And let us not forget Bono)

Further proof of the accent phenomenon: Sean Biggerstaff (aka Oliver Wood from Harry Potter)

I NEED to move to England/Ireland/Scotland...say, jkayet, you're still living there, right? Can I come visit?

Yes, accents are so . I've sadly become immune to some of them from time to time, but then you'll hear a really amazing one (colin from mull historical society's scottish accent) and totally be again. Yep, I'm here!! Sure, I love to have people join me in the land of amazing accents!!

accents = Life.

Once, on my 22 bday some british guys came to my table and tried to buy me drinks. They were all asking us questions that i would answer in simple yes or no format, then proceed to ask them long, detailed questions so i could listen to them talk.

I John's southern accent. Sometimes when he calls, he'll be tellin' me about his day, and all I can reply with is, "Damn, baby, your accent sounds so fucking hot..."

*tries to defile him over the phone*

Yes, but we're talking lovely Euro accents...British, Irish, Scottish.. and Australian (so it's not Euro, but it's so very nice)

Bonochick, there will be NO defilement while in this foum, understand?

my mom said that my great-grandfather told my grandparents when they moved to jersey that they better not have kids who grow up with jersey accents. instead they had my mom and aunt who grew up with mixed up maryland-pennsylvania-new jersey accents

not a big fan of french accents cos i can hardly understand what my calc professor says sometimes. but i can understand the chemistry professor who supervises our labs. he's irish. his son used to be friends with my brother.
