None of our Canadian friends seem to care for it so far...

I thought it was good except for "aboot".

I don't think anyone is offended. I'm not. Just tired of the "aboot" jokes. We can hear that we say it differently than Yanks do, but doesn't sound like "a boot" to us.

taxy, I must have spent five minutes searching for a closer phonetic spelling than that. Looked ALL over. It just can't be spelled out. I suppose I could have looked for an audio clip, but I have a short attention span.

I know. It's really hard to explain the difference. We've heard lots of Yanks trying to imitate it by saying "a boot".

A lot of the time I have the attention span of a kitten.

Being half Canadian, I find I can slip in and out of the accent quite naturally, especially when I'm in Canada. Most of the time I can talk like normal people.

So you can speak normally on either side of the border.
