Okay, fair enough. :yes: I wish mine was cool, though, like Arkillian's.  Or Cat's!  She has such a sweet, gentle Southern drawl.

I have a Southern drawl? It definitely isn't as strong as some people's :P

You have a nice Southern drawl, Cat--I've heard some really bad ones that just sound almost fake, but yours is one of the really nice ones!

Atec--ahh, I thought I detected a touch of East Coast in yours :)

I like your one though- What is the bubbly carbonated drink called? I call it Soda. My friends and boss call it pop, but although I like them, they're kind of wrong, it's SODA. Just leave it.

I didn't mean to be stern.  I've just been in so many arguments about which is the right word, especially with my sweetie, though I did catch him calling it soda a few times.   ;D  Actually, we've had a few arguments about how a word should be pronounced, though we'd end up looking it up in a dictionary just to see who was right.

On a different note, Atec and Enchantermon sound really manly.

I've noticed that WriterLove and Cat have slight southern drawls.  I think it's normal for the eastern Bible Belt.
I have my cake and eat it too, until it's gone.  Then I can't do either.


Aww!  You have the Sword of Hugging +3!  All of your attacks deal affectionate damage!

Well that's good, lol. :)
So what if I am, huh? Anyways, I work better when I'm drunk. It makes me fearless! If I see a bad guy, I'll just point my sword at him and saaaaaaaaaay, "Hey! Bad guy! You're not s'posed to be here! Go home or I'll stick you with my sword 'til you go, 'Ouch! I'm dead!' Ah-ha-ha!" Ha-ha. *hic* See? Ain't no one gonna be messin' wit' ol', Benny!

Tess, you have a little bit of a southern accent, too. :) It sounds kind of like some of my family in Dayton, Ohio.

No- it's totally cool. Honestly. I cracked up with laughter when you said it.

Daw- I'm all shy now. I heard that Kiwis have some of the better accents in the world (from poles that actually differentiate NZers from Australians >.> ) and some vote us the best for english speaking accents. I donno if we're the best, but I guess it's ok. You always think that something that is not of your own accent is better though. I'm personally a fan of UK accents, but anything deap and smooth will make my heart melt <3 You American ladies consistently have a nice accent to listen to IMHO. I guess it's cause it's so different to my own.

Dont' you find it interesting how accents go when you sing?

Perfect example: Rebecca St. James. I listened to her quite a bit when I was younger and there was a Christian radio station nearby and I never knew she was Australian until many, many years later when I heard her speak in an interview for the first time. My jaw literally fell open. Her accent was completely gone when she sang, but it was there in all it's Aussie glory when she spoke. It was so crazy. But it made me love her even more. ^_^

Ronan Keating is like that too. He has a HEAVY Irish accent that dissappears when he sings, but then he talks (*faints*) and it's all Irish and stuff O.O IT's like... WOW. I don't know many singers that retain accents- I know if you sing in another language that it's noticable- Ace of Base aren't native at speaking english which is why they pronounce things weirdly. Some sounds just aren't in their vocabulary. IT's interesting...

Peter Furler (former lead singer of the Newsboys) had a very distinct accent even when he sang. That's the only one I can think of off the top of my head, though.

Yeah...I'm far less likely to be doing that, lol.

Also, I'll have to do it when I'm not feeling masochistic (refusing to take drugs) or high (have taken too many drugs), so it could take a while. :P
Actually, that might make it even more fun to listen to. ;)
Actually, that does sound more interesting XD
It's not really. :P There will be lots of whimpering/gasping if I do the former and I'll probably make less sense and be much more chatty if I do the latter. :P
Ahem... clearly, you should do the latter then. :P

I tried to do this a couple times on my laptop... my microphone did not like me... :-\

I may try again now that I have a headset with a good mic on it.
