Oooops, sorry... gratuitous RPattz photo just appeared... must be weekend magic!
One particular cartoon about accents caught my attention. If you've met me and talked to me, you know that I have a pretty strong Maine accent -- like newborn Bella strong. I rarely pronounce an 'r' and love to use words like 'wicked' and 'pissah' and 'yessah'. And sometimes even together.
"My dog got run over by a cah the other day."It's been loads of fun getting to know other Twitards from all over and hearing their accents. [I'm looking at you Jenny Jerkface. Wanna go get some cawfee?] I sometimes think my Maine accent makes me sound a little dim, but I stopped trying to hide it a long time ago. It's who I am and where I'm from... and I'm really not that dim.
"Well, that's a wicked pissah!"
It amazes me how certain accents can give people an impression about someone that may or may not be true. Like why is it that someone with a British accent never sounds stupid? Even if they are... And why is it that Robert Pattinson could probably say the meanest thing to me ever -- "No thank you Latchkey Wife. I don't want you to give me a mind-melting blowjob." -- and I'd think he was charming because of that fucking accent?
Completely rude, yet smart sounding. How do they do that? And jftr, twat crumpet might be my new favorite word.
But what would RPattz think of my accent? Because along with the non-pronunciation of the letter R, I'm loud and I have a serious potty mouth. This is exactly why it's probably a good thing that if I ever did come (twss) face-to-face with him, I'd suddenly become a mute. More likely than not, I would blurt out all the following inappropriate things...
Except I'd be talking about RPattz's penis. Not mine. I don't have one. Well, I do have one but it's attached to my husband.
I think most people don't think they even have an accent. My cousin (Double_Dippin) actually claimed she didn't have a Maine accent and then at lunch the other day she threw down a "wicked smaht" and I about fell off my chair. Maybe that will be a fun game in Forks -- "Name That Accent." What's yours? Do you have one or are you in denial like JJ and DD?
TGIMFF, twat crumpets!
