Why is it that Euro English appeals to me and Canadian English doesn't?
I guess it is just really Irish and English - English that I get a kick out of.
The best is how the Irish (at least the Belfastians I work with) say their filler word. Instead of "um" or "ugh" it's "em". To be globerly (neighborly), we here in Portland have started to say "em" as well. We also occasionally throw them a bone and say "dater".
