I must say, the boy's still got it. When I saw the kissing caps I went all "ooh, heehee, ooo......" right away. Very warm in places already warm. Twisted Evil


Are we still talking about accents? I speak in a working-class Philadelphia accent, which has a very distinct sounding "A", like if I said "water" it comes out "wooder" I think it would sound. Another very South Philly thing is to say, "ditten" for 'didn't.'

It also has many characteristics of working-class city accents with a lot of "Youse" in place of "you," although here it sounds more like "yiz"
and "git" for "get," "tawk" for "talk" and such.

I suppose I sound like a gangster at times, and I've been told that I sometimes speak really fast and my words run together, which is another Philly thing. Estelle and Gaby have both heard me speak in person, in point of fact couldn't shut me up even if they'd wanted to. They'd be the ones to say if I sound like a complete thug or come off more ladylike. Wink

You certainly don't sound like a thug. Smile

Oh these are marvelous pics! I'm supposing they are from VHS since someone mentioned that they were hoping it would come out on DVD. Really nice considering. And what the heck, I'll be a girl too and say yay for kissy face! It can't all be emoting, right?

And about that face, mmmm...lovely, I saw a series from Netflix called The Human Face with John Cleese that made the point that as we get older, less of our genetics and more of our personalities, the use of our features, begins to show on our face. So there is something to the Eleanor Roosevelt quote that, "Beautiful young people are accidents of nature but beautiful old people are works of art." NOT that Paul is old, please, but I prefer seeing his faced a little lined than his younger, perfect self. He's almost too pretty!?

As far as accents, I'll make a Southern conribution! My father is from the midwest, so has no accent, and my mom is from the South, but her first career was as a speech therapist, so she lost her accent in college (although it is back when she wants it). My dad was Navy so we moved around a lot, so I can have no accent if I want, and for many years I chose that option. But it is kind of fun to have a Southern accent I think now, although the Southern accent that shows up in Hollywood is 99% of the time DEAD wrong. It is a pet peeve of mine and makes me just want to storm out of a theatre every time I hear it. They tend to rely on the Scarlett O'Hara accent that just doesn't exist anymore. Rather than r-less, the southern accent is now r-full to get the "twang" thing going. Interestingly, living in the mountains, there is also a hillbilly accent that in some ways I prefer, perhaps just for the novelty of it. It can be incredibly hard to discern, but it is useful to have some knowledge of it since speaking in someone's accent puts them at ease. Has anyone lese found themselves adopting the aceent of a place they are visiting or just moved to unconsciously? Anyway, my fave hillbilly term is "you-uns." The rest of the South, and the rest of America should use it as far as I'm concerned because it is just so danged useful, uses y'all. It's a shortened version of "you all," but up here it's you-uns, which never cease to crack a smile on my face. In fact, I have some friends who had looked at leasing an apartment and instead of a term like "leasee, or perhaps "tenant," the lady had filled in "you-uns!" Shocked

Rambling on... Very Happy

Paul kissing? One can never have enough! Ever!
More! Please! (Lucky women!)

As for my accent, well, a woman once told me I
could "flummox Henry Higgins"! I'm a real jumble.
When I'm very emotional, the English comes through
loud and clear! But in my normal speaking voice, a bit
of the American is creeping in-much to my chagrin.
But after over 10 years in America, I suppose it was
bound to. I'm also influenced by Welsh, as I have a
habit of saying things like, "There's interesting!", which
is very Welsh. There's also a bit of Irish and Scots as well.
As for the main English portion, my diction and terminology
are very English. I've been told my accent is a unique
combination of "Received English", "Yorkshire", and, believe
it or not-"Cockney"! Guess you will all have to judge it in
November! Smile

I was hoping we get a Brit throwing in some accent stuff. It's all such a mystery to me!

Oh yes, my Southern is never so obvious as when I'm "riled up!" I think it adds to the effect though! Laughing

Six hours of Paul last night-and I can still
function?!?! drool

What can I say? He did it again. My blood pressure
is in tatters, and my nerves, and my heart's beating
like a... Wink Wink

Six hours? Two showings of "If I Had You" with
BBCAmerica on Demand's month long repeats
of "Sea of Souls" in between.

The eyes, the curls(wet? WHEW!), the...ah..."kitchen"
scene-about which I was absolutely furious! BBCAmerica
censored it! Why? Oh Why? It was past the "family hour".
I guess they reckon we can only take so much Paulie
gorgeousness! Whatever. I'm jealous of Sarah Parish. I
also like the scenes where he's holding his newborn son.
So sweet!

I've got to see it again. I love that man.

Catherine

OMG, you lucky girl. Six hours, you alone with the curls and the eyes, I wonder that you didn't drown in a puddle of drool. Wink

Enjoy your next night with Paul. Mr. Green

I wish I really WAS alone with those eyes and
curls and smile and...and voice...and...

Right now, though, I'm furious at BBCAmerica on
Demand! Evil or Very Mad In their infinite stupidity, they've
taken off "Sea of Souls" two days early! Sadists.

I ALWAYS enjoy my Paulie marathons. Six hours
is lightyears from the record of being "PaulBlitzed".
That goes to my beloved Birthday Marathons. Paul's
take a good week! Several hours a day. Takes a bit
to come back to Earth, partly because I DON'T BLOODY
WANT TO! This year's is going to be very interesting.
If things work out, as it seems they're going to, the
marathon is going to take on a whole new meaning!
Wow! It'll probably be split into two halves-under the
circumstances. Very Happy Very Happy
