Unhappy wish I were an Aussie!

I'm from Minnesota and it sucks like a hoover! yah, when I say "hoover" all you can hear are the o's, don-cha -know! I talk like an Aussie alot, and it drives my friends crazy, but I think it's cool, and so do alot of other people! I'm going to Australia when I turn 18, just for the stupid fun of hearing the accents, and so I can try some Vegemite! I know someone down there, he sent me some aussie money once (the clear window things in your money is really cool!)

Aussie, aussie, aussie! Oi, oi, oi!

i was in a play and we got to sing " I like bananas" aussie-style:

oi loik boinoinois, boinoinois oi loik, etc.
it was great!

It would be more North American (minus Mexico)than just American though, Canadian's are always mistaken for American's when we go anywhere outside of Canada.

For some very odd reason, when I talk to people, they notice I have an accent but not a South African or Kiwi accent... but an american/canadian accent!!! Odd if you tell me!! I haven't been any where near america!!!

that's pretty weird. South African/ Kiwi sounds nothing like American/ Canadian.

Well EXACTLY!!

Its when my South African accent is mixed with the kiwi accent I picked up that people notice some sort of accent, neither South African or kiwi, but rather like: "You have an accent... are you from Canada or america.....??"

I don't post in here anymore since I no longer live in Australia. I miss it. But if you over look that little detail I'll be willing to keep posting here.
