Oh yeah, when I hear "He/she had a nice European accent". Seriously? That could mean anything.
    You like Europe/European accents? Oh great, that narrows it down to just 50 different countries then!

    Yeah, that pisses me off too. We're not like states in America; we're all completely different countries.

    Simon Cowell, what a dick.

    On my holidays for this year now =)

    Uhm, not sure about next year.
    I've been to Egypt but never made it to Cairo, which was the main reason I went along with my family, so I'd like to go back there before it get's TOO commercialized, which it's getting now. Due to my plans though, I don't think I'll be going away next year. Saving for this course, so I should save as much money as I can to do it.

    Don't forget the dozens of non-sovereign "countries" like Wales, Catalonia, Brittany, etc., each with their own language as well.

    It annoys me a bit too. I suppose it's because America is rather homogeneous compared to Europe, and only has two neighbouring countries (both of which are also fairly homogeneous), so they're probably not used to so many different cultures and languages in the same region.



    I never add friend codes.

    Pretty much. And additionally, you're not "one of us." You're kinda "over there," and so we group you all as not USAUSAUSA. I doubt that the majority of Americans could care less where you're from if you're not from the "best country on Earth."

    Not to fit a mold,

    Not to join a trend,

    Not to follow a crowd

    Woman behind counter the other day: Oh so where you guys from?
    Us: Wales
    Woman: Oh in England?
    Us: No Wales, next to England
    Woman: Ohh Scotland?
    Us: No.. Wales Wales.

    And someone else thought my accent was Scottish. There we are then.
    My aunty who's been out here since November, said she's been called Austrian, Dutch, and loadsa weird ones like that, even Australian.

    We actually planned to do that - and then we realised how daft it seems to be climbing a mountain at silly oclock in the morning:P

    Egypt was nice, but something not to be repeated. Far, far too hot. I must've read seven or eight books, inside the apartment, that holiday.

    Enoch was right.
