Cheerio

There is this girl who thinks I look British. Not sure why, but I will take it as a compliment. I guess.

Girl: Seriously, all you need is the accent.
Me: I would humor you with an accent if I weren't terrible at it.
Guy who says that his name is Juan Hamud even though it isn't: You can do it....come on....
Me: Seriously, all my accents come out southern.
Guy: Ummmm, you could be from southern England?
Me: I suppose you're right. But still, usually people assume I'm a Swed. Or of the general Nordic region.
Guy: I would say more Bangladesh.....
Me: Really? I bet it was the pasty white skin that gave it away.
Guy: I didn't say originally. You could be an immigrant.....
Me: Well then, that makes perfect sense.

Yes Stace, it's a little thing I like to call singles wards. They breed them apparently. And make for great entertainment. Sometimes.

Viking woman...actually...even on the Walker side, possibly...(They raided the the British Isles quite frequently, you know.) Celtic / Scandinavian mix I would say.
