If I study abroad, I'm going to Ireland. My mom got to go, I really want to go. i mean, her whole side of the family is from there...just go back 3 or 4 generations...I'm named after my great great great...great? grandma. She spelled her name wrong, which is why mine isn't spelled right. (Bridget vs. Brigid)
Funny story, for speech team soph year my HI was a piece called "Accents, Inc." It included lessons on how to talk Cockney, British, French, Scottish, and Swedish. (Of course, everyone knows all Swedes sound like the Swedish Chef from the Muppets...yes, that was in the script. It was Humorous Interp after all). I couldn't do Swedish correctly, though, so we cut it. But it was a fun piece and it gave me an excuse to talk in random accents.
