It's probably just being territorial.

You need to show it who's boss in this relationship.

Re accent debate. My accent used to be fairly middle class well spoken like but has a habit of lapsing into Bristolian, especially when I've had a pint or few. I never really noticed the Bristolian-ness of it though until I moved up north, where I constantly have people imitating me when I say words like 'cider' and 'Friday' :lol: and now since spending so much time amongst northerners, sometimes the odd word I say will come out sounding very northern!

Y'see, I'm from up the road in Farnborough and I really can't pinpoint it as 'regional'. I couldn't pick out a distinctly Hampshire accent. It's just 'southern' to me, with people's accents falling on a continuum between RP and Thames Estuary.

I've picked up a bit of a Brummie accent according to my Nottingham friends. I don't notice it, but then I do have WAS so it's hardly unexpected.

Congratulations, you're now 50% less attractive!

(That's how the Brummie accent works)

I wiki'd WAS on the assumption that it's some kind of acronym.

I assume you're not blaming your accent on Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome, and bloody diarrhea

Wandering Accent Syndrome! I can spend literally half a day somewhere and develop the accent.

I had that, quite badly too, until about a year or two after my moved from home. My accent's quite watered down now, nowhere near as broad Scots as I used to be, but I don't fully adopt accents like I used to.

I asked my family (mainly my gran and mum) if they thought you sounded Scottish. My gran said "Good grief, yes!" :lol: so it's not watered down too much!

It's still substantially less Scottish than when I speak to Bathy on the phone or go up north, though :P

The heart rate monitor on the exercise bike said my heart rate was 199 at one point today :|

I then checked manually against the machine later when i'd calmed down a bit and they were about the same, meaning the machine wasn't out or anything.

Considering my maximum heart rate is 203 that's slightly worrying

A bloke on another forum casually mentioned that he'd got a blister on his privates through excessive wanking.

And posted a pic.


Why, oh why did I open the spoiler? Why?

Looks painful as fuck.

RE: the accents


When I was at Hannah's I took the piss out the Gloucester accent so much I found my self saying things in the accent sometimes, which of course amused me greatly :P
