Say What?

I found this Accent quiz on Stacey's blog. When I first took it the quiz said I had a Northern Inland accent (ie Ohio or Wisconsin), then I took it again and had an accent from Minnesota (I don't think so!) Finally, the third time was the charm and it stated:

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.

That's more like it! I really don't have an accent, some words I say sound North Eastern (both of my parents were originally from New Jersey and for the most part kept their accents) but I lived in Florida since I was two years old. I don't have a southern accent either though.
