Becoming British

  1. Lol um yeah, this is really random! I'm just saying this because my spelling habits have suddenly started to change... I think I'm "Becoming British"!! I have British ancestors from my Dad's side, but either way, I don't know what triggered this. Maybe I just like to write the "UK style" now, haha! XD

    traveler --> traveller

    color --> colour

    honor --> honour

    theater --> theatre

    Yeah, I don't know; I'm just being a wacko person, that's all~! xD
     
  2. You're probably reading a lot of British English written stuff and it's rubbing off. I know after reading Tolkien I want to write 'grey' rather than 'gray'.

    Not really that random or wacko. You'll be ok.
     
  3. Well hey i'm totally looking to become a US citizen so if you want to do a little US/UK marriage switcharoo then hit me up who says i'm too forward c'mon chea.

  4. Or Canadian, because it's pretty common and I've been slipping u's into words for as long as I've had people calling themselves teachers throwing words at me and seeing what stuck in what we call English class. It's not really mythical or anything, it's just that Americans have been butchering the English language since they started throwing perfectly good tea into perfectly clean water like a bunch of unappreciative jerks.

  15. Yes, cookie exchanges. A known ancient tradition within the love rituals of the north americas. I read this in a book once. :blah:
