About a decade ago I dated a chap from England. He was so much fun, and did he ever make me laugh with his British sense of humor. The relationship didn't last, but the friendship did, as well as a love for all things English. They have a term for that, it is an anglophile, which means a person who is fond of or greatly admires England or Britain. I have never been to England, but would adore going there. It would be brilliant (fantastic),
Sir Francis Drake. I always thought that was pretty interesting. When time comes for my daughter to do a school genealogy project we have got her a sure A+ most definitely.
So I don't go around trying to use a fake English accent, it would sound silly mixed with my southern one, but I do have a definite fondness for people who speak with the accent. They always sound so intelligent and polite. I love talking to my friend on the phone just to hear the accent. What else do I love English? A good cuppa tea :) hot Earl Grey or English Breakfast with sugar and milk. It really is relaxing.

I love all the rich history of England, the majestic castles, the scandalous royalty, the beautiful countryside, the quaint pubs, the brisk seaside, sweater weather all year long, and how very proper they sound even when joking around, but since I have no passport and no thousands of British pounds (money) to visit England properly I have to pretend and content myself with visiting the United Kingdom Pavilion at Epcot LOL
One of the days I will make it across the pond...
