I actually like the Americian accent though ours is cool though .:lol: I always find it funny when people say "American Accent" because I think Americans speak English very monotone and phonetically :o but British and Australians speak it so much more interestingly (is that a word :o) that it draws someone's attention.

A few things:

1. About the accent: there's an Aussie accent? :p
2. About the weather: yeah... it's pretty good generally, but at the moment, it's pretty lousy, very cold and lots of rain.
3. About the president: we don't have a president, so I guess you're right. But our PM is on par with your President... I mean, the rumour among Aussies is that they're a couple
4. About the beautiful: it most certainly is :D
5. About the people: yes, we are nice :)
