How R U?*

So, um, yeah. I’m taking the easy way out today because I’ve got a birthday party to throw for my little one. Who is on his way to becoming a not so little one.

(insert standard weeping for the transition of toddler to little boy here)

Anyway, I found this site from Mrs. Chili. They have lots of cool little quizzes. They are, of course, probably wildly inaccurate, but they’re fun!

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 West

The Inland North

What American accent do you have?
Take More Quizzes

This one is almost accurate. I am technically from Iowa, and spent a few years there intermittantly throughout my my childhood, but I spent most of my time in Louisiana, with brief stops in Ohio and Oklahoma. I have an accent, it just depends on how I feel at the time. If I am angry, the southern in me comes out more. Like this, “I am so mad at yew”.

Your Language Arts Grade: 100%

Way to go! You know not to trust the MS Grammar Check and you know “no” from “know.” Now, go forth and spread the good word (or at least, the proper use of apostrophes).

Are You Gooder at Grammar?
Make a Quiz

This one is completely correct. I am the Gooder Grammar Goddess. Ok, so maybe not, but like much of much of high school, I managed to test smarter than I actually am.

Ok, go take some quizzes! Feel free to come back here and report your findings, whatever they may be.

* That title was almost physically painful to write and the people who know me well are probably half shocked and half worried about me. I hate chat shorthand or whatever you call it, but it seemed appropos. TTYL! (argh. make it stop!)
