What American accent do you have?

Mid-Atlantic. This is what everyone calls a Philadelphia accent although it's also the accent of south Jersey, Baltimore, and Wilmington. Well, everyone that lives near there, that is. Outsiders can tell you talk differently from them even though they can't tell what your accent is.

You're probably from somewhere near New York City, possibly north Jersey, or Connecticut or Rhode Island. If you are from New York City you may be one of the types who people never believe when you say you're from New York.

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?


yay I'm a flood victim

Yes that's our apartment complex in the news.
Yes we've voluntarily evacuated ourselves to Dad and R's place.
Yes J's fine and no sign of baby yet.
No "Cars" is not as good as other recent Disney & Pixar films.


I used to feel overwhelmed, confused, scared...
but now I am totally comfortable, even confident...
about walking around Babies R Us.

We are nth in line for take-off

Woke up kind of grumpy this morning. I think I'm getting tired of the waiting. Any minute now my life is going to change in a major way forever. Any minute now... It's a little like waiting for the airplane to start boarding but it's delayed and they're not giving you any updates. You're free to bop about the airport - get some food, go to the bathroom - but you know you shouldn't wander off too far or get involved in anything too big because that plane could start boarding any minute.
