This was great thanks for pick up Cherie.

Very fun! I didn't catch that she did a New England accent and I didn't know that there's a difference in the accents of Californians and Washingtonians.

You're entirely welcome, Sandy!

Patti, the L.A. accent is one of kind, I think, sort of the Valley Accent. Normally I wouldn't say there's a difference between CA and WA, either. Glad you liked it.

Gardenia: I thought so, too.

Definitely no New England there. She shoulda done a Joisey Gurl. Having lived all over the world, literally, I think that's one pretty talented lass. We'd have hired her in my day in a heartbeat:)

Try Telling them that at Airport Security!

Alan said...

Wait a minute!
I know her.
She's Amy Walker, ha.
Just shows you, you never can tell.
I can only get away with two levels working class, and middle class Dublin.
She has the ear- a great gift.

Entertaining! Thanks, Cherie; she is talented indeed.

Cherie said...

Mike, I'll bet she can do Joisey Gurl and more. Pretty fun to watch, huh.

Tony, ha! It'd give them apoplexy!!

Ah, Sean, so you know her too, that Amy Walker. She does have a good ear, great gift.

Deanna - you betcha!

The girl has talent!
I wonder where she was really born?

That was great, though the Toronto one was off.

I once knew a linguist who could distinguish between different parts of Manitoba and even Winnipeg by voice alone. I thought that was astounding.

On another note...I cannot believe you are deadheading daffs already! As I just said on my blog in response to your comment - THAT'S INSANE!!

Cherie said...

Tshs: I saw a news story on our local news and she lives in Seattle - I think. I don't know if that's where she was born, but when I heard her speak on the news she sounded like one of us.

WC - You made me laugh out loud - AGAIN. Insane, huh. Well, bring on the straight jackets, I kid you not. I'll have to get a picture and put it up here for you.

As far as Toronto I'll have to take your word for it. Pretty good though, eh, 20 out of 21?

She even did OK with the Australian accent - quite a feat!

Cherie said...

Hey! Yay that she got the Aussie accent okay. I wonder, which Aussie accent are you? I sound like her Seattle accent, even though I'm a Californian. The Calif. accent came into play long after I moved away.
