Day 13 of NaBloPoMo 2007
Nothing much happening today, so i'm going to go with one of my pre-prepared topics.
It's happened several times now over the years: people that i've just met remarking that I have a (usually) American accent, and asking where in North America am i from.
I don't really get it, i'm born and raised here in Brisbane, and I don't think i sound at all American. Especially when i was at uni at the start of a semester of tutorials, a fair few people tagged me as an overseas American student.
Just a few weeks ago, the guy doing the gardening here at the unit asked me which part of Ontario (a Canadian province) i was from. Weird.
I think i must pronounce certain words in a slightly North-American accent that confuses people sometimes...
