This is for you, Linda!

One of my fav. bloggers, Linda from "Soulamouse cerchant la vie dans le monde" posted about accents the other day... So, I went searching on Youtube and found this gem! Not only do I think Steve Martin is a RIOT, but this scene is EXTRA HILARIOUS! Enjoy....

thank you...it made my studying sunday very nice...:))) I love the part where he says "We do not quit, we do not quit, again, again!!"
but as far as dropping an accent goes, I was told in the US as well that it is nice to have an accent...well, of course, it depends...I would not want to speak as a "Russian spy in a James Bond movie"...This is actually a term used by our phonetics teacher...:)))) She fails students every year if they have a strong accent...:))

Hi, Leesa, thanks for calling - yes, Lolly IS a soft coated wheaten terrier. vaguely sweet, utterly full-on. Those bikes are rather tempting - something I never thought I'd say!

Everytime I see this clip, I crack up!! Even my hubby's accent is NOT like this!! I think MY French accent in English is pretty forced but when I used it in Starbucks in LA about two years ago, the barista thought that I was French... It was pretty funny! I can do a VERY good Indian accent, too... If you have never seen Peter Seller's, "The Party," I highly recommend it... I will post a clip... It's HILARIOUS, as well.. and when I watch the old Pink Panther movies now... I find that PS doesn't really have a good "French" accent in English (and I thought he did when I was a kid!)

David... If your accent was THAT heavy, I would have a totally different image of you... my image right now is that of a cool Floridian with no French accent!


Linda- I'm glad that made your Sunday studying a bit lighter! I also love Kevin Kline's French accent... He's great in "French Kiss," a very cute "chick flick" with Meg Ryan... check it out if you can. Happy studying!! : )


Milla- OHHHHHHHH!!!! I can't wait to get one, too!! My hubby loves them because they are cute and don't shed... I will post a picture of my sister in dog form, Penny, a SH wheaten terrier I know and love in San Diego... These dogs have suc h great temperments!! Thanks for sharing your pictures! Yours is darling!! Happy Sunday to you!!
