Running Back Home

Spread the love

First of all, an apology for not showing you a Saturday Sky. I took a photo of the sky in my backyard trees at 7:30AM along with some FO pictures of the lace square that I knitted up with Emu’s Superwash wool (in discontinued colorway #1112) today to Comfort Jenn. However I have a slight problem with the card reader when I attach it to my PC. I get the message that something is on my USB port, but that is about it. No additional messages prompting me to open the photo directory and I cannot open the drive itself. If I can get the photos uploaded, I will date this post accordingly.

Thanks to Kim at her “Knitter in Progress” blog, I have confirmed that I REALLY need to “get on home” to Virginia. How so? I just took a fun little quiz on my speaking ability and it seems I lost my Southern accent. 🙁 I so want my Southeastern Virginian drawl back without having to imbibe adult beverages. And yes, that is when my DH Richie knows I have had too much to drink. In case you are interested, this is how I did. =:8

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

What American accent do you have?

Update: Before I forget, please applaud Ariel from “Stariel Knits” for guessing the Forest Path Stole as my reason for locating the IK Summer 2003 issue. Ariel, please e-mail me your snail mail and if you prefer sock/fingering weight or laceweight. 🙂

  2. That’s funny. I get all kinds of wierd accents when I drink adult beverages. I grew up in Phoenix (valley girl), but have lived in Texas for 20 years.
