What American accent do you have?
Created by Xavier on Memegen.net

Western. Like Midland, Western is another accent that people consider neutral. So, you might not actually be from the Western half of the country, but you definitely sound like it.

And if you're not from the West, you are probably one of the following:
(a) A Pittsburgher - the quiz can't tell the difference;
(b) Someone from Canada (probably southern Ontario) who doesn't have a Canadian accent;
(c) Someone from northern New England who doesn't have a New England accent; or
(d) Someone from Texas or the Heartland who was born after 1980.
You are definitely not from New York, New Jersey, Chicago, Detroit, the Deep South, etc.</font>

Take this quiz now - it's easy!
We're going to start with "cot" and "caught." When you say those words do they sound the same or different?

The windshield guy is here

Putting in my new windshield (7th one since I've had the car - damn potholes) and Joe was looking especially fetching.

Great.

Now Aristide is saying he wants to come back from exile as well. Lovely.

At least someone filed a lawsuit against Baby Doc for crimes against humanity.

Haiti

Is anyone else following the news story of Baby Doc Duvalier's return to Haiti? I'm finding it fascinating.

I was outside smoking and I saw what looked like a child crawling out of the dumpster.

Next to my front stoop

I was outside smoking and I saw the beautiful way the dew was resting on this leaf.

That Hey Jude is The Beatles most downloaded song on iTunes. I love the Beatles and I hate Hey Jude. Couldn't the general public had chosen a different song? Like Eleanor Rigby?

Woohoo big winner!

I came in second place tonight at the cribbage club! I won 6 games, lost 3 (and two of the games I skunked my opponent) and I won $10! That was awesome. I had really great luck tonight.
