What's your American accent?

I found this little quiz this morning while I was out blogging around. Now, I was raised in the Pacific Northwest so you'd think the results would have been a bit different. Anyway, here's my results...

What American accent do you have?
Your Result: The Midland

"You have a Midland accent" is just another way of saying "you don't have an accent." You probably are from the Midland (Pennsylvania, southern Ohio, southern Indiana, southern Illinois, and Missouri) but then for all we know you could be from Florida or Charleston or one of those big southern cities like Atlanta or Dallas. You have a good voice for TV and radio.

I did this just for the heck of it - this is what it said

"You may think you speak "Standard English straight out of the dictionary" but when you step away from the Great Lakes you get asked annoying questions like "Are you from Wisconsin?" or "Are you from Chicago?" Chances are you call carbonated drinks "pop."

Well, actually, I do call fizzy drinks pop - but I am definitely not from Winsconsin or Chicago...

I must try to investigate doing a spoken post sometime!!!!

I call fizzy drinks "coke" or "soda". I used to call my father in law "Pop".

Well, you missed the "wierd" post... it's below. But yeah, you probably could... a bunch of them! At least I didn't beat my head on the concrete porch.

As far as the "way to big a heart"... the wife's the one with the huge heart, I'm the one who has to use the huge stick when that huge heart gets broke. And you know what, that's not all that fair.

I'm working on a post about the most recent stuff brother... we just have to live out the next two weeks to see how the post "ends"... or at least, that chapter.
