Eh? Who, me?

So I just popped over here and came across an American accent quiz. I couldn't help trying it myself and, well...I guess I shouldn't be surprised at the results.

What American accent do you have?
Your Result: North Central
 

"North Central" is what professional linguists call the Minnesota accent. If you saw "Fargo" you probably didn't think the characters sounded very out of the ordinary. Outsiders probably mistake you for a Canadian a lot.

The Midland

The Inland North
 
The South

The Northeast

I'm pretty sure though that not all Canadians sound like that!

Knitting
I finished, blocked and seamed the Backyard Leaves scarf. It's amazing what an effect blocking can have on size.

The tabby is busy colonizing every box he can reach.

My accent seems to be non-existent, which is Midland. But then, that's when I haven't been drinking... ;)

Your kitty is NOT amused by the packing, is he??? :) :)

Can I ask how you will move the cats? I've been curious about long distance trips for them. Mine are going to have to tolerate 45 min in the car, but they should be OK. Will you be flying yours?

Oooh, Backyard Leaves looks very pretty! I'm sorry I probably won't get to see any real modeling of it, because you'll be in Seattle by the time the weather gets cold. :(
