I love accents.
garnished with my dad's Geordie vowels.
as that's mine
I'd call it homeopathic Welsh
(sorry marilyninthesky) but I love the North Walian accent !
I'm a Wockney nah
what does wockney sound like. Weird I bet !
Just a subtle Welsh undertone that comes out in full force when a bit tiddly/on the phone to mam.
When talking to an English person, it's almost imperceptable, unless it involves the following words:
However when talking to other Welsh people or when inebriated, the Welshness is exacerbated.
Saying that though it still seems to be strong enough that English people see you as a Welsh outsider and Welsh people see you as an English outsider. Worst of both worlds, wahey!

(Also I've got a girlfriend. Also also, I still maintain that the idea that anyone would get turned on by my rusty French is preposterous.)
bit biased. (lets just ignore heaton for a bit, everyone knows it's void of anything now because its 70% students.)

but I don't mind them at all on tv and in films
