I skimmed through a few of the other blogs I visit this morning and it looks like my busy days are robbing me of some prime blog reading (Nathan getting a new avatar, Janiece posting some fantastic photos, Jim going on about Brazil) in addition to prime blog writing. I'd like to say "Ppppppbbbbbtttt, work!" but I really can't, so here's a bit of fluff to fill the gap in the meantime.
I was listening to the radio this morning and heard an interview with James McAvoy (Children of Dune, C. of Narnia, Atonement). He has a delicious Scottish accent and I've just now decided that it's my favorite accent. Irish and Australian were up there for a long while, but under the onslaught of the recent dreamy Scottish actors, I'll have to say Scotland is tops for the moment. It started with the adorable John Hannah (Sliding Doors, Four Weddings and a Funeral) and besides James, has finished up with Gerard Butler (300, Cradle of Life), both, incidentally, from Glasgow. (I'll leave off that best known Scots actor, Sean Connery because I've seen more movies of him doing an English accent than movies/interviews of his native Scots accent.)
So, do you have a favorite accent? What is it?
