What American Accent do You Have?


I don’t post too many of these quizzes, but this one I thought was fun (and its short too) and really nailed it/me–right down to the city.

Oh, and yes, I do call it pop, and I taught my children who where raised in southern Illinois to do the same.

Signs


(Okay, I guess I am not ready for anything serious just yet…. so try these.)

Signs Signs
Everywhere there’s signs
Blocking up the scenery
Breaking up my mind
Do this, don’t do that
Can’t you read the sign?

Scot needs

I picked this up from some of the stlbloggers. Some results are more humorous than others–maybe it is the name used. Give it a try.

Directions: Type “your name) needs” (with the quotes) into a Google search; cut-and-paste the first 10 responses that work. Just pull the answers right out of the excerpt Google shows you, don’t click the link and search around. The only rule is that each one has to start with “(your name) needs.”

Scot needs no introduction.
Scot needs your help on what places he should visit on his trip to Brooklyn.
Scot needs to be sailed flat so that helm is nearly neutral.
Scot needs a checklist with clearly defined criteria that are reproducible.
Scot needs to fight a terrifying biological weapon…
Scot needs some lovin’…
Scot needs a wild card.
Scot needs to go to an anger management class when he performs.
Scot needs additional wording for the rationale.
Scot needs to stop being so stubborn and change…

Well that is the first ten usable ones, but I couldn’t resist scanning down the pages:
Scot needs some more practice as he hit Jack with sling stones twice.
Scot needs to learn to play it and the sooner the better.
Scot needs to find a new profession.
Scot needs any help kicking butts…
Scot needs a copy editor more than a fiddler.
Scot needs treatment.
Scot needs to be used sparingly because he is looking quite old…

Okay, I am going to stop now, these are starting to hit too close to home.
