Ummmm...no  
Anyone that has ever talked to me knows I have a Southern accent. I really answered the questions exactly how I pronounce the words, though.

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.

The Inland North
The South

Had a decent weekend. Went to see Marc Broussard on Saturday. Each time I go out, I find the cigarette smoke bothers me more and more. I wonder if it's an age thing. I voted last Thursday, and I wish we had a smoking ban on the ballot. Instead we get the doesn't-really-change-anything gay marriage amendment. Oh well, it gave me a chance to support something I care about, and I guess the state can get a gauge on how the voting people of TN feel about gay marriage. My icon pretty much expresses how I feel about it.

Barb got me and her 2nd row tickets for John Mayer in Lexington. Whoohoo! We were on the phone talking to each other trying to get some. I got us a pair of 6th row, then she comes up with a pair on the 2nd row. Awesome. Susan, do you want to go? Actually you would be sitting in the 5th row, off to the side, but you would still have a good view. It's February 24? 26? Whatever is the Saturday. Allison is taking the 6th row, so she'll be there, too. Let me know!

Let me just tell you - that accent quiz is a joke. I also came out having an accent from the Midlands - and that is just SO FUNNY. Everyone from the north laughs at my southern accent - even people from HERE do. So Midlands, I don't think so.

- it's good to hear you voted. TN is such an important state.
- you and barb have such good ticket luck. it worked in my advantate once again b/c i'm using the extra 6th row ticket. so i'll be seeing you in lexington!

- that quiz is weird. i got south, which i am from, but i don't think i have that much of a southern accent.

You are the least-sounding Southern of all 3 of us! Margie, you are right: a bogus quiz.

Yay, I'm glad you'll be in Lexington :)

Texas had the gay marriage amendment thing on the ballot last year. I dunno if Iowa has had it on yet. It's not on this year, I know because I voted this morning.

I'm so jealous of your 2ND ROW seats!!!!!

i did the quiz and it said my accent is from the inland north, that seem pretty correct. someone reminded me to vote early, i'm glad i did. i'm excited to see how the election turns out.

Sarah,
Remember your dad is from southern Illinois and your mother spent her formative years in Michigan and Indiana. You probably picked up how they pronounced those words.

i'm with you on the smoking thing.
in massachusetts and ireland there's a complete public ban. including restaurants and bars/clubs.

in virginia, there is no such thing. apparently it lost marginally last year. blaaaaaah.

p.s. i have a midland accent. not at all. i have a Boston accent mixed in with a bit of a southern accent. hah.

I love your accent.

hi!
Hey, it's Jen.

It's my understanding that the smoking ban thing is going to be voted on in the State Senate or House (one of the 2, I get them mixed up) after the beginning of the year. I'm right there with you. I absolutely hate it!
