    Then you know who you are:D

    It's much more difficult with me:D
    I have been Yugoslavian the first 30 years of my life, but that country doesn't exist any more. The last 20 years, I'm Norwegian:D
    My mother is from Montenegro, my father from Bosnia and Herzegovina, I have relatives in Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Serbia and Montenegro, my wife is half Hungarian and I've been working for US and British companies all my life.

    Should I post all those flags:D
    No, just the one that is not on the map any more;

    I'm guessing that if we were to talk to you, we'd think you were Australian. Si?

    Gif-sur-Yvette, or the AF lounge
    Well, I live in France, but I carry a British passport, and was born and grew up in Canada.

    My mother was born in England, and my father in Mauritius.

    No wonder I'm confused.

    I'm a Canuck, eh...but living in the UK. So I count 2 countries.

    Three if you count being a Leafs fan; we live on a different planet because we think one day the Loafs will win the Stanley Cup.:eek:

    Not really, I never picked up the accent, most people assume I'm British because I'm eloquent & I don't have an accent. Mind you, I can put on an excellent ozzie accent when I try ;)

    Funnily enough when I speak German I sound very German, I must have picked up mum's accent from hearing it all my life (or maybe it's in my blood). Locals here assume I'm a native when I break out my minimal German, and start talking to me at 100 km/h :p

    This Canuck finds you extremely funny, spew-the-coffee funny!

    Speaking of regionalizations, when Michiel typed "NLer here" I thought, What?? You're not a Newfoundlander!? Eh.

    If it wasn't for globally accessible internet forums to remind us, how easy would it be to forget there are many words abbreviated in exactly the same manner...
