this morning in an email at work, i typed "behaviour" automatically without thinking about it. i think i also used "nutter" in a conversation recently.

additionally, my speech patterns have been adapting a hint of a southern drawl from watching too much firefly.

combining that with the still east-coast accent tendencies along with whatever i've developed from living in Oregon (Peggy has stated that i have an "Oregon accent") plus the Ecclesson habit of saying "Fantastic" a lot sounds like an interesting hybrid of contradictions.

kind of like me, i suppose. *signature mendel smirk*

tag cloud:

I've been saying 'shagadelic' and 'groovy' ever since I first watched an Austin Powers film. Add that to my use of the Norfolkian 'Tuesday' ("Toousdee") and I can sound mildly worrying.

alas, i cannot let myself watch the austin powers films due to an old superstition that no one who was not a part of the east US coast drum and bugle corps scene would understand.

funny tho'. :)

Sounds very fantastically mendel :)

I tend to start picking up things as well. Kinda funny when I get strange looks for using deaf-isms on hearing people or use other language glossed or cultural phrases in english ... hooray for quirk-i-tude :)

oh, how i miss that smirk. ;)

still avoiding 'the word', eh? i still think of you every time i hear it.

'every time you hear it'....

how often do you hear it? i haven't heard it in a long time now. well, with the exception of one of my PA friends who uses it on a semi-regular basis, but i'm somewhat used to it from her by now.

hah, i don't hear it too often anymore. mostly just the occasional showing of the austin powers movies on tv and instances of cocky young drummers trying to strut their peacock feathers around the department.

but don't worry...i send you sheltering karma whenever i hear it. wouldn't want to jinx anything. ;)

"too much firefly" -- i'm sorry -- i don't understand that phrase...

i don't think oregon has an accent, and i do listen... i can distinguish at least three texas accents. look, you're rubbing off on me now... i'm typing without caps... i guess you're not the only sponge around.
Mar. 10th, 2008 06:14 am (UTC)
heh... and now i read your other comments... i'm not the only one who doesn't understand your mysterious firefly reference...

according to peggy, an oregon accent has to do with the pacing of our words, where we put our pauses.
