"I can now say that Hollywood casting directors must be very picky about who they cast with British accents. These people are terribly difficult to understand. I felt so dumb asking them to repeat themselves when we speak the same language. And they're the mother country too! So there's my inferiority complex to factor in, too. A guy who checked my boarding pass actually said "Cheers" to me. I can't say I haven't been trying out my own British accent with them, just to see if they say anything. I think it would be hilarious if one of them called me on it. What an awkward social exchange that would be! Maybe there would be an insult duel. USA v. England. There's wireless here but it costs 6 Lira per hour and I don't have that kind of money."
my lack of upper-case use in cyber space in no way predicts that i actually do write in formal and gramatically-correct english although i may not type that way all the time sometimes it's hard to know when you are typing too long of a sentence on the internet but when you have a nice lined moleskine journal it's really easy to tell when you are doing that so you know when too long is too long so you won't find any english errors in my journal.
