too much time on my hands today

Guess I'm making up for lost blogging time today. I'm making everyone stay inside and watch tv or play gamcube. They're doing legos & playmobil now.
Later we'll do an Indiana Jones marathon.......

here's my latest survey.
I grew up all over the country.... Long Beach, St. Louis, Florida, Kansas City, Hawaii & Iowa. But I've lived in California since 1980. So I guess this is correct:

What American accent do you have?
Created by avier on

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.

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?

Hi Laurie! just stopping by after you visited my blog. I have a western accent too, I've lived in Ca my whole life. We stayed in the house all day today, too. My kids actually have not seen the Indiana Jones movies, you just gave me the idea to rent a few, they would love them.

have a great week, and stay cool!
