Default WCBF language barriers?

Funny. By the end of the West BonnieFest, I was starting to pick up the Canadian speech patterns....accent if you prefer. It was natural, especially the more I drank.

What I observed with the Canadians (who outnumbered the members from the States) was when sober, their accents weren't as obvious towards the end of the week.

The Pfamily (O'Neil, Nichole, Jessica, Andrew) had a more obvious accent than the 2000SilverBullets (Paul, Laura, Chynna, Victor), but Jessica'* was the most obvious, with Nichole a close second.

Pdad (O'Neil) had the most pronounced Canuck accent when he was a bit ripped.

Contagous, eh?

I'm a hoser now!
