Most of these Internet quizzes are just plain silly, you know the ones like What Kind Of Pasta Are You? This one at least has a basis in reality. It nailed my accent.

Nanc- Considering you're originally from the west('scuse me, left) coast, midland is moving in the right direction! When I was up in NY visiting cousins, in my teens, they all commented on how suthun I sounded!
