Writing is Weird (Paulspeak)

I was reading over some old RPG posts in sp_gravesfamily last night, and I was struck by the extreme differences between how Paul would say some things and how I would say them.

This is not new; I purposely set out to write Paul's speech so that it would be completely different from mine. I think what struck me was how...naturally it seemed to flow. It never sounded stilted to me, though I can't judge its effect on other people. It still amazes me, though. Where did I come up with turns of phrase like these?:

"...Oherwise, I shall have bought two Renoirs for nought but the pleasure of owning them." and
