    I Have International Tourette's

    The thing is, while other people with the disease will commonly blurt out swear words, I will spontaneously burst into some accent I picked up off a show or someone I met, lol.

    I Must Annoy the Hell Outta People

    Every time I watch a movie or something on TV, if I hear anything I like, I immediately mimic it. Right now I'm in TN (originally from FL) and most of the local commercials here have people with southern accents, which makes me laugh so hard, and I love mimicking it in a...

    I'll Get You My Pretty.... and You're Little Dog, Too!

    One of my favorite voices to mimic is the Wicked Witch of the West.  People say that I could have done that voice instead of Margaret Hamilton.  There's only one problem - I wasn't born then!  I also pick up accents easily wherever I go.  I'm southern but...

    Mimic Others

    Anyone can mimic me all they want.  If they do; I'm getting attention and it means I mean something more to them, hehe.  :)I know people would like being like me and unfortunately, there is only one and it is me.  :)  Sorry, no need being jealous of me.  ;P

    Mr Impressionist

    I'm what you would call an amatuer voice impressionist, there are quite a few voices I can do and ones that I can't do. I can do Elvis, Michael Jackson and a few others - I can even do Sly Stallone. My mom is an impressionist too, her impersonations include Count Olaf, Mr...

    I Love Being Observant

    Imitating voices is great, especially if you can put the motions and gestures behind it as well. In general, I can do a decent Brittish, Minesottan, Southern, Russian, Australian, and gay guy. Those are fun expecially when you get another person to believe that is how you sound...

    Wait

    Makes good light hearted entertainment for a little while. Then I get bored while my avid audience requires more from me. I tell them to wait an hour until I have enough interest to continue with my anticts. Most wait, some go. But those that go always miss out :)

    For those people who know me,

    they've described my voice as "chocolatey smooth with marshmallows on top", whatever the hell that means. In short, it's fairly deep. But yet somehow I can do a bitching Elmo impression. Go figure.

    My Best Friend Tells Me All the Time.

    she says i'm an excellent mimic. i think she's exaggerating, but it makes me feel good. did Sammy Davis, Jr. the other night, and my Morrissey is quite good... it's always men, for some reason. when i was younger i'd imitate Sean Connery to amuse my mother. and i'm slowly...

    I Love to Mimic My Friends Like They Mimic Me

    I love to talk like I am from Boston, or the Midwest and I have dated enough guys from these areas that I can do it pretty well.  I can also do a pretty good Canadian accent thanks to my friend Bassy.
