Now here's a topic with a bit of meat to it...can't wait for some of the replies!

Okay - soul-baring time...

Positive: Fiercely loyal (professionally & personally)*, easy-going...

Neutral: Can lack motivation at times, strange-ish sense of humour (I think it's called 'warped'...!)

Negative: Shy amongst others (which can be erroneously taken for aloofness)*, do not adapt easily to change (professionally & personally)*

*Typically Cancerian traits...so it's not all my fault!

Two facts:

1. I have nearly memorised the British Hit Singles book! (Not through choice, I hasten to add, mostly by copious browsing!)

2. I have never seen a Brisbane tram - in a museum or otherwise, but did come close to being run over by one in Amsterdam...(Amsterdam tram that is, not a Brisbane one!)

Subject: Re: Personalities

Positive traits:
*Ability to be detached about things. For example, if I'm helping someone with an emotional problem I don't get upset, I just try to sort things out logically.
*Weird sense of humour and ability to employ it in arguments.

Neutral traits:
*Obsessiveness
*I'm a good morning person- I can get up reaaaally early and be absolutely fine. In fact, I feel a bit ill if I don't get up before six.

Negative traits:
*Short temper
*Unwillingness to change my mind or my ideas about things, despite evidence that contradicts them.

Two facts about myself:
*Being obsessed with Star Trek, I recently learned to say lots of different phrases and count to 999- in Thlingan Hol (the later Klingon language). Wa', Cha', Wej, Los.... *keeps counting*
*I love watching toddlers' TV programmes, except for Boobah because it frightens me. The Hoobs is my favourite, though; it's fantabby-troobelly-groobelly-hoobelly-groovy-doobelacious! Especially Iver, he r0xx0rs.

I believe a neutral character trait is something that doesn't cause anybody any bad, but doesn't do anyone any favours either.

E.g My example was forgetfulness. More of a pain in the neck than a nasty thing to say about yourself. †:)

Hi Bobby!  Yes, it did take some time to find all the songs but I enjoy that kind of stuff.  Of course there are some songs that I don't particularly like and others that I haven't listened to in a while (read Paul's reply below), but at least I have them in my collection!  ;D

I'm not suggesting why not, Vile I was just wondering. There doesn't seem to be anything striking about British blokes (not that I've been looking too hard I hasten to add - ahem).

good:
1. i'm funny (and i can take a joke.)
2. loyal to friends.

neutral:
1. achieved sarcasm at age three. ::)
2. my sense of humor is really, really warped, and a little (HA) on the perverted side.
 
bad:
1. i find it nearly impossible to deal with any problems in my life, so i just let them sit in the back of my mind until they build up so much that i just flip out.  as a result, i am prone to sudden, extreme mood swings for no reason.
2. i procrastinate on everything, including eating.

two things:
1. i taught myself to be ambidextrous.
2. i recently started songwriting, and quickly discovered that i couldn't write a serious song to save my life.

Yes I do. :) However...wherever you go in England, the accent changes. I think as you go further north (Liverpool, Manchester, Newcastle...somewhere around there) the accent gets worse and worse. And then there's good old Essex. Well, I suppose I shouldn't say anything too bad about Essex since Depeche Mode are from there. But then, so is Jamie Oliver. So yeah, some accents are nice and some are not. (No offense to anyone here from the north of England. My hubby is northern-ish and has a nice accent, I think!) It might take some getting used to, but you get used to it and you learn a lot (like cockney rhyming slang!).

I guess you could call me an "Anglophile," one who is obsessed with all things British. I was like you, Rio. :) Every bit of music (with very few exceptions) was from the UK, I also wanted to go there, and always wanted to marry an Englishman. Well, I've married one and I've been to England...and I'm HAPPY!!! I just need to get out of supporting Manchester United....<ducking away from the UK people>

Vile is right. Rio. It's very difficult to say how each accent is different (there are a few I don't even know). I've found that the more north you go, the common they sound - but the more character they have.

I come from The West Midlands and, believe me, we are almost unintelligable to the rest of England. Anywhere from Coventry, Birmingham (where the accent is strongest), Wolverhampton and the like and it's 'I ay kiddin' yow! Fancay a cup a' tay! Liyk!' If you heard Noddy Holder from Slade give interviews, we kind of sound like that.

Go North and you hit the Yorkshire accent, which I love (Eeh bah gum!) the Liverpudlian accent and the Geordie accent.

London's not quite Mary Poppins 'Cor Blarmy guv'nor' these days but the accent is still strong with plenty of 'th' sounds exchanged with 'v'.

The South has it's own accent which is, to be honest, an acquired taste in my opinion. Plenty of older people saying 'Alroight me maid' or 'Alroit m' luvverrrrr'. Bristol and Cornwall accents are very strong. Southern English people (especially to the West) talk as though they are asking you a question, even if they are not.

There are plenty more accents. Anybody giving you the sterotyped posh accent in Britain is pretty rare.

Do you like Bachman Turner Overdrive's 'You 'aint seen nothing yet' because I find that stuttering a little bit more irritating.

Yes I think we should, Rice. Conquer evil with stupidity!

We have a non-serious political party headed by former singer 'Screaming' Lord Sutch called 'The Monster Raving Loony Party'. His policies were often foolish (things like you've got to walk backwards on a Monday and so forth) and developed a cult following.

Despite his death, the party continues . . .

Well, I suppose that's progress for you...

Back in my day (God, how that hurts saying that!) they used to be known as 'threepennys' (pronounced 'fruppniz', or 'frupps'), as in 'threepenny bits' - an old bit of British coinage...

Fancy more? Try here, then...

That site is actually where I got the last statement from. Yes, I cheated. :( The first statement was pure AV (i.e. me) from my very limited knowledge of the language, but since it is very limited, and my husband's is a bit rusty, I had to resort to the web for the last one. I promise, though, that I will brush up on my rhyming slang so I can be fluent in the future!

Quick-tempered and critical. (Yeah? What about it?)
I'm old and I write comedy. (Seriously, I'm married and raising a grandchild with special needs.)

That's the way to do it - one step at a time. You know, I was quite scared of women at one point. Nothing too rational about it but I think it was religion inspired.  ::)
