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.

Go Ohio State!

Saturday, November 18th, 2006

Ohio State is currently playing Michigan, so why I am blogging about it during the game? Because I don’t have cable, but do have a radio. I can’t pick up the ABC channel that it is carrying it on TV. And since I have a bit of a short attention span, I am surfing the net while I listen.

At the end of the year, the 500-600 dollars I will save by not getting cable is worth it. The 360 dollars I will save by not getting a local phone (and using my cell) will be worth it too. However, the lack of cable makes things a little inconvenient on days like this!
