Italian

*Moony sigh*

Antonio from La Bella Italia was just talking on the radio about the Italian Food Festival at the International Terminal, Sunday 26th March
.

He mentioned lots of Italian words like barista and spaghetti, and they sounded so pretty.

Of course if you're italian or french you should move somewhere foreign, so that all the mens and womens go moony about your lovely accent.

But where the hell can we go with our kiwi accents? Nobody anywhere goes moony over fush and chups and noice.

Oh that is good. I've got a bit of a hankering to live in the States at some stage. I want one of those wood panelled station wagons.

Do you find the word "spaghetti" pretty if the person is talking about tinned spaghetti, or spaghetti on toast? I think context is important here.

American women seemed to love my accent when I was there :-)

t'is true- americans love all accents. kiwi is nicer than aussie - it's a little less rough around the edges (or am i just making that up?). south african's especially nice too.

please educate stoopid 'merican: fush and chups and noice? OHHHHH! once i said it out loud i got it.

Hee! At least you don't have an American accent! I'm with Oy Vey - we love all accents. In fact, being from the southern part of the US, I even love Northern accents. Sigh.

Oh you are sweet, but honestly there is a good reason for all the New Zealand celebs adopting US accents.

When I've visited the states nobody can understand me. Although that was LA and Vegas, I imagine there are more open-minded places?
