"In Erins cause"/what?

Im feeling my Irish side today. Often times when I get very caught up in conversation my accent changes. Lots of people say I normally sound Canadian and sometimes when I get very serious I start going into this strange Scotch brogue that will oscillate between Canadian and an Irish brogue like thing. Its tolly uncontrollable and I have no clue why I have a different accent than everybody else around here or where I managed to get them from. Sometimes I sound like a normal californian but mostly people think Im from Canada. I dunno why *takes sip from maple syrup bottle*. My parents have always said that I must have been Canadian in a past life, and most people question my Americanness. Yea cuz im tolly a Canadium spy stealing Americum secrets and giving them to the RCMP.
Well anyway my strange Irish side was present today. Not the accent cuz that only comes round once in a blue moon, but I had this Irish song stuck in my head and was humming it to my self on the way home today.

I try to be more multi cultural than the average bear.
I dont have a heck of a lot to say today actually. Its monday and im pretty tired. I came home and did some hw and basically just rollerbladed around until now.

Im reading my history book and I just laugh out loud at the United States' good neighbor policy. I love our mentality. I think we are trying our best to be good neighbors but I dont think all of our neighbors would agree. like Manuel Noriega I cant imagine him thinking we are the best neighbors. just saying.

Im feeling really goofy today for some reason. Like earlier I was really out of it and uncoordinated and now im just real giddy and strange.
Thats a good sign that I should stop
As always


  1. Canada is happy to have you. We have lots of spies in America. How do you think we steal your culture?
    America's like the big loud neighbour nobody wants to piss off. I mean, you have our backs, but you could also run us out of the neighbourhood.
    I like getting Irish songs stuck in my head, have you ever listened to Celtic Thunder?

  2. About what you said yesterday of feeling bad when others are bad, during the Plague in Europe a priest once wrote, and he reminds me of you:

    “No man is an island. entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main; if a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as well as if a manor of thy friend's or of thine own were; any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind, and therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee.” By John Donne

    How about your french accent is it more Quebecois?

  3. Hey Tyler:

    I was down in St. Maarten earlier this year and I was told by a couple of tourists that I had a Canadian accent. I initially thought whatev, but maybe I'm so used to it, I don't notice it.

    I hope all is well.

    You bet we can run you out of the "neighborhood" alright. lol
    Yea I listen to celtic thunder! gotta love it.

  5. @Luke

    Was I just compared to John Donne? I am honored. Thank you Luke.
    My French is more French than Quebecois but I say certain things more Quebecois cuz I hang around with les canadiens.

  6. @Matt

    Pretty much anyone has an accent if they go somewhere else. Like I say people from Bowston have an accent and they say I have a funny accent. Or how I think I sound like a Californian but apparently I dont. lol idk.
    Thanks Matt
