A little quiz

I saw this quiz on another blog, and I had to take it to see if they'd have my accent listed (most people don't think I have an accent at all, and a few people just notice that I say certain words a little strangely).

What American accent do you have?
Your Result: Philadelphia

Your accent is as Philadelphian as a cheesesteak! If you're not from Philadelphia, then you're from someplace near there like south Jersey, Baltimore, or Wilmington. if you've ever journeyed to some far off place where people don't know that Philly has an accent, someone may have thought you talked a little weird even though they didn't have a clue what accent it was they heard.

For the record, I'm from Cherry Hill NJ, a suburb about 10 minutes from Philadelphia.

If anyone watches Good Eats on the Food Network... you can't imagine how hard I was laughing during the construction of the turkey lowering derrick during the fried turkey episode. That may have qualified as my favorite Good Eats moment ever.

Not a whole lot going on in knitting that's newsworthy. I finished the lace waist detail on my Simple Knitted Bodice, so I'm doing the purl ridges, and then it's back to the larger needles for the waist shaping. My hold for Inspired Cable Knits was made available at the library last week... I liked a lot of the sweaters in it, but the one I know I'll be making is the Gathering Intentions sweater. The one with the I-cord. It's nifty.

I love that sweater also - that and the Rogue-ish hoodie were two of my favorites!

It was totally wrong on my accent. Like it has me just barely from the states and verging on Canadian.

Uh. No. Politically, maybe, verbally, nope.
