Thought about it, and while Brooklyn is still probably a good answer, the real answer is the subway. I'm told that if I traveled more I'd be over it, as some cities so totally outdo the New York subway - but so far, I'm not convinced. I'm still pretty impressed with the fact that for just
No, not really. I never really got why people get excited about accents. Of course, growing up in Brooklyn, you're surrounded by so many accents that singling one out as special might be a little counter-intuitive.

My grandfather (maternal), just 'cuz I miss him, my dad (we hardly ever talked - last year before he died, he and I had one good talk - it was the first time, and I wish I had had more opportunities like that), President Obama - just because I think he's a nice person, and he has community organizing in common with my dad (my dad could run circles around him, back in his day).
Yay me! Thank you, Cardie!
I never answer this when asked, but I will today to a point. It's actually stale-dated. It should now say T minus 3, as in, 3 years till my son graduates high school. The "Indentured servant" part had to so with some unhappy home circumstances, circumstances that have changed, but I'm still keeping count (increasingly anxiously) on when my son graduates high school.
