I've been here 7 years too. That does include a long period of roughly a year that I didn't post, but nevertheless. I'd like to think in 3 years time I won't be still posting here as a 10 year veteran.
Yeah, but if you met me IRL, you would assume I'm some sort of English-American hybrid, until I began giving out the odd "Aye" every now and then, but even then, you'd still question it. My accent supposedly comes, according to my parents, from grasping my vocabulary through watching lots of Countdown; specifically the Carol Vordemon bits.
It'd be great for a sort of mildly-cynical narrator, if I didn't stutter like a motherfucker so often.
