I alway try spelling things the British way.  Colour, behaviour, grey.  Anyone else experience this?

did you know americans removed those extra U's and the various other slight changes to the language just so we could have our own version? pretty petty if you ask me! 

i like the english spelling. i think it makes a little more sense and makes me feel fancy. lol!  ; )

Haha! Those extra letters are an irritant. ;)

Just kidding.

I do use grey though I think. Because I never understood the difference between grey/gray, so I just went with whatever looked better. Ha!

When I talk to myself... it's in an English accent, no good reason... just sounds better I guess.

It would be awesome to lecture yourself with an accent!

LOL!  I do that sometimes.  I often spell "grey."  I DO pretend with DD and talk in a British accent - she thinks it's funny.
