    Australian accents!

    Isn't that funny - but I feel like I stick out when I am away, and when I get back home everyone sounds like me again.

    I'm sure no-one else really cares - but I feel funny about it. If I'm watching the TV in America and an Aussie comes on it makes me prick up my ears!

    We get asked a lot if we are Australian, so you obviously don't stand out as much as you think to the American ear anyway.

    I`ve lost count of the number of times that an American has said to me "I love your accent".
    I usually reply "Actually I don`t have an accent, I speak English, it is you who have the accent!"
