And one thing I never do, even though I like Britishisms, is adopt a 
British or Aristocratic accent.  Madonna has adopted a British accent 
and we all think she's dumb.  If you look at a lot of old 50's American 
movies, you will find the "Aristocratic" accent which is different from 
British.  Brits have an Aristocratic and Common accent too, but our 
Aristocratic accent is different.
