  1. That was fun. My result is western and it’s right since I grew up in the San Diego area and it even had San Diego on the map. It was a hard quiz though since I’ve been living in the midwest for over ten years now I don’t always say the same word the same way–my accent is starting to migrate–so I chose the answers according to how I say things most often and still came out western. My CA family may disagree with my results :)

  2. Oh, that would be complicated! :) Hobgoblin did the quiz and it came out right too — western, even though he’s been living on the East coast for a while.

  3. It does not work for aliens. The accent detector located me between NJ, CT and RI: I have never been there, although this is probably the part of the US closest to France ;-)

    BTW; you’ve changed the theme again! Before the banner showed up, I almost thought I’d clicked on the wrong link and had landed on Charlotte’s web. That’s all right. I love the cutline theme (or whatever it’s called), and I’ll probably build on top of it for mandarine’s imminent makeover.

  4. Interesting how it placed you Mandarine! I’ll make sure to check out your blog’s new look.

    My result was exact too. Apparently I have “the Philadelphia” accent, which is correct seeing as that I live in Philadelphia. Very impressive.

    I too love this theme, and am contemplating a switch of my own. But I wonder whether it seems odd to readers who visit from time to time. On one hand, I imagine that it’s nice to keep things fresh, but on the other I know that I associate certain blogs with looks and colors, so it was a little jarring to see this theme on yours. It’s as if someone you haven’t seen in a while has just cut all their hair off or dyed it a different color. You know it’s the same person, but it’s hard.

  6. I know exactly what you mean, Ted, and I’ve thought it would be nice to be one of those bloggers who always has the same theme and so is immediately recognizable — but I also realize that I really like to tinker with the blog’s look! I can’t seem to help myself …
