My favourite new mode of procrastination is this website, the Speech Accent Archive, run by George Mason University.  Basically people anywhere in the world can read a prescribed excerpt which is then mapped onto an atlas so people can read along to the different pronunciations.  I think I might give it a go.  God knows I’ve already given enough people a good laugh just saying “out and about“.
