I don't know; that zombie ninja certainly knows how to have a good time!

Since when does having a good time require being drunk? When you grow up you'll find the best times are to be had sober - and you get to remember them, in all their glory! Yay! :D

There comes a time when you realize that being f*cked up all the time is not all that fun. Don't get me wrong...i probably drink too much, but i limit it to late at night so the kids don't get the idea that drinking all the time is okay. I had a friend in h.s. who is now such an alcoholic that he had to put whiskey in his morning coffee or he'll shake.

Worst story you've ever heard:
That same guy doesnt remember the birth of his second child. He was wasted at the bar when his wife went into labor and called him to let him know. He "celebrated" by getting so drunk that he passed out on the floor of the bar in question and one of his friends took him home and dumped him on the couch. He woke up at noon to meet his daughter....

My youngest grandson has a wonderful daddy. He is the best person I have ever met and he makes my daughter the happiest woman in the world (bar me! :D ).

Anyone can be a father, but it takes someone really special to be a daddy.

His father (as in - the guy who provided the sperm) was informed that his child was on the way - like your mate, he celebrated in the bar and didn't turn up until the following afternoon. (I wonder, are they related?!) I was the one who stayed with my daughter throughout her long labour. I wouldn't have missed it for the world. Not surprisingly, the 'father', having refused to be put on the birth certificate, dropped out of his son's life mere weeks later after an unsuccessful kidnap attempt by his mother to remove her grandson from our care. (And later went on to father two more kids by two other women whom he also abandoned, thank FSM). The point being, he spent his entire life drunk at every opportunity, missing out on everything that makes living worthwhile.

My grandson has had his current daddy since he was three months old. He is a lucky lad! His dad knows how to have a good time sober!

Only immature idiots and people self-medicating undiagnosed mental differences/disorders think that being drunk all the time is a good idea. Which, I wonder, is vikinglordSF? If the latter, I have every sympathy - but there are better medications out there that don't leave you constantly brain-damaged and a diagnosis leads to a better self-understanding and self-respect.

WOW way to take what i said completely the wrong way and blow it out of proportion. This is a thread about ninjas i was just saying i hate ninjas because they are boring. I dont drink very much at all i was simply making the point that ninjas never have a good time because they take things way too seriously. I more than understand that alcohol can destroy peoples lives. My father and mother are both very bad alcoholics which i grew up around and now refuse to talk to them for several reasons that being one of them.

Why don't you just hop on over to Quebec?? It's probably a cheaper than going over to the emerald isle.
But not as pretty; And wthout such good beer; And with incomprehensable accents rather than sexy ones.
Hmmmpf, I see your point . . .

It would be cheaper, plus I've already some friends over there. Unfortunately, neither Quebec nor Ireland are really travel options for me right now. But, I'm absolutely fine with Irish and French accents. And Australian. And British. I just love accents, to be honest! :)

Do you mean all accents, including your own; all accents except your own; all accents except Anglophone Canadian accents, or just all unfamiliar accents?

My mother always told me that you don't have an accent until you leave home... so really, right now I don't have an accent. :twisted:

I was born in London to a mother from Yorkshire and a father from Berkshire; we moved to Kent when I was five to be near my Welsh grandfather. We lived opposite people from Norfolk and I went to school with Irish kids.

There was never any question that I had 'an accent', as did everyone around me!

Jesus H Christ! What a mess!
I was born in Yorkshire to a mother from Gloucestershire and a father from London who grew up in California, but I didn't do much moving around while growing up, except to see relatives in the South in the holidays, and then I had 4 years in Edinburgh and the last 18 years in Italy. I thought I had a vocal identity crisis, oscillating from anodyne "sophisticated-educated" Home Counties bourgeoise cadences to a rustic and cynical Yorkshire drawl (some people even take me for Italian now, which is worrying!), but I can't imagine what kind of wierd accent you must have (or maybe you have none at all... perhaps that's what you mean by "There was never any question that I had 'an accent', as did everyone around me"???)
Accents are interesting, the way they establish your identity and the way people see you (and sometimes judge you)
I liked what Elvalia's mum said... It conjures up scenes of secluded hamlets and homesteads cut off by the snow in the storm-torn wildernesses of "the Sword Coast" and the locals dressing in traditional costumes and carrying muskets to go hunting wolverines and uprooting red plants (we don't look at the BAD COLOUR!) etc... but in my rather schizophrenically cosmopolitan case it ain't really true... I've kind of invented an accent in Italian that combines Roman, Neapolitan and Puglian dialects (with a touch of English in certain consonants)... unfortunately I still oscillate between diametrically opposed accents when speaking English, although after a while I do tend to slip back into Yorkshire dialect when I go back to the old homeland and speak to the local yokels!
I wonder if Elvalia has heard the West Country Somerset and Gloucester Pam Ayres style rowlly-powlly accent... It's definitely my personal favourite!

Oh, Tris, I meant that however I spoke I had 'an accent' that was different to those around me. My voice also switches between accents; having been to a primary school with Sarf Lunduners, Irish kids, Kentish kids, travellers and home-counties types I went to a posh all-girls grammar school so I can sound 'plummy' or 'common' - or even lapse back into flat Northern vowels. My hubby's parents are from Scotland, although he was raised in Essex. We have lived in Co. Cork (even other Irish people have trouble understanding Corkonians), Adelaide and Canberra.

When we arrived in Adelaide with our youngest two boys, one of them still had a South-East English accent but the other was starting to sound decidedly Irish. Since they don't look much alike either, no-one in their new school would believe that they are twins!
