I've been watching a lot of British television lately and there are a few accents that just completely grate on my nerves (I'm not trying to stir anything up--there are American accents that bother the heck out of me too). One that really gets me is Kathy Burke's accent. It just makes me curious.

Resolved Question: Who would you want to
Stirling Moss has caused controversy by saying he would not want a gay person playing the part of him in a film of his life. Would it bother you, if they portrayed you accurately in the film? Ralph, he used the phrase "I would not want a poofter to play me" which caused some people to get their knickers in a twist, silly I know but so is worrying about an actor's sexuality.
TU to all from me btw, thanks. Sorry all but I am still hoping and waiting for the perfect answer which reads, "I would have Johnny Depp play me as I am the spitting image of him, fancy meeting up?", ah well a girl can dream, lol!
