Irvine Welsh wrote the whole book pretty much like that --

Quote:
I dinnae Tam, ah jist dinnae. Life's boring and futile. We start oaf wi high hopes, then we bottle it. We realize that we're aw gaunnae die, withoot really findin oot the big answers. We develop aw they long-winded ideas which jist interpret the reality ay oor lives in different weys, withoot really extending oor body ay worthwhile knowledge, about the big things, the real things. Basically, we live a short, disappointing life; and then we die. We fill oor lives up wi shite, shite like joabs n relationships, tae delude ourselves intae thinkin that it isnae aw totally pointless. Smack's an honest drug, because it strips away these delusions. It's the only really honest drug. It disnae alter yir consciousness. It jist gies ye a hit and a sense ay well-being. After that, ye see the misery ay the world as it is, and ye cannae anesthaetise yirsel against it.

My favorite part of Trainspotting was the scene in which Sick Boy is air-rifle-sniping at goers in the nearby park, and channeling his inner Sean-Connery-as-James-Bond while doing so. Favorite, because in the film version Sick Boy is played by Jonny Lee Miller, master of 1000 accents and real-life grandson of Bernard Lee, who played M in the Bond series until his death.

haha, you are right...

(fun part: it makes the same sense for me as it would be pronounced "normally", and it is exactly as I, a "Latin-based" speaker, would read it, if I would get an English text in my hand for the first time without having any previous knowledge of English)
