I took this picture the other day and thought, "What's on this pea's mind?"   What do you think THIS littlest pea is thinking about?
Try out your best humorous line.  Nothing too risque; this is a public post and kids under 13 might be watching.  :-)

I will post a poll at the end of the week with the top 3 lines, from which I will get the best line to appear in the bubble!

Though this is not as strong as it USED to be when I lived around Trenton, I suppose I can claim that it's still very similar to Philadelphia. But, depending on how tired or drunk I am, or around which group I've been hanging, I might have a more southern, NY, Boston, or Canadian accent. My sister calls me a linguistic sponge, which kind of sums it up. Have fun if you wanna take this quiz.

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.

The South
The Inland North

I was able to select the status updates that highlighted elements of 2010 through my eyes and experiences. It's funny to note how many of my posts deal with food, friends, travel, NYC, and NJ. This was fun. Now, I'll delete the app on FB. LOL

[livejournal.com profile] ironranger1 posted results of an analysis of his writing style. I thought this was interesting and fun thing to do, too, but realized that depending on my mood, I might have a different writing style. I poked through my archives to find three distinctly different pieces to analyze. These are the 3 results (all interesting choices because we're all around the same age):

Number 1:
Wallace is interesting on a lot of fronts, but also disturbing in that he committed suicide in 2008. This guy was also steeped in philosophy, taught, and had parents who expected good grammar.

I Write Like by Mémoires, Mac journal software. Analyze your writing!

Number 2:
This guy is a Canadian blogger. Fancy that! That my writing style is similar to that of a blogger... But, again, he's within my age range.

I write like
Cory Doctorow

I Write Like by Mémoires, Mac journal software. Analyze your writing!

Number 3:
Albeit only 4 years older than me, of the three authors whose writing mine resembles, his is also partially the most interesting. Interesting, until I realize why the piece of writing I chose resembled Brown's writing style: There were lots of "secrets" in the piece - back during the 30 Secrets meme.

I write like
Dan Brown

I Write Like by Mémoires, Mac journal software. Analyze your writing!

I found the last one particularly interesting and Matt even exclaimed, "Dan Brown???!! Get out!" It became clear that certain phrases, words, or amounts of punctuation really dictated which writer was selected for the analysis.

About a week ago, [livejournal.com profile] pauliebearsf, [livejournal.com profile] spikejrt, [livejournal.com profile] goreyboy, [livejournal.com profile] erstexman, and [livejournal.com profile] jimwnyc (among others) posted their results of their tarot cards. I don't put any stock in Tarot card, palm reading, tea leaf readings, or Ouji boards, but thought this would be cute. Plus, I like the pretty pictures.

You are The Star

Hope, expectation, Bright promises.

The Star is one of the great cards of faith, dreams realised

The Star is a card that looks to the future. It does not predict any immediate or powerful change, but it does predict hope and healing. This card suggests clarity of vision, spiritual insight. And, most importantly, that unexpected help will be coming, with water to quench your thirst, with a guiding light to the future. They might say you're a dreamer, but you're not the only one.

What American accent do you have?
Created by Xavier on Memegen.net

Neutral. Not Northern, Southern, or Western, just American. Your national American identity is more important to you than your local identity, because you don't really have a local identity to begin with.

Take this quiz now - it's easy!
We're going to start with "cot" and "caught." When you say those words do they sound the same or different?

BUT, I noticed yesterday in my voice post that I said something that sounded DISTINCTLY Philadelphia! When I said, "post", it was a long "o", which is very South Jersey or Philadelphia. Thought I was done with that accent. Meh.

Ganked from both [livejournal.com profile] mort_83 and [livejournal.com profile] spikejrt. I thought theirs were cool and had to see what my rainbow looked like. Here it is:

Your rainbow is intensely shaded green, violet, and red.


What is says about you: You are a creative person. You feel strong ties to nature and your mood changes with its cycles. Those around you admire your fresh outlook and vitality. You get bored easily and want friends who will keep up with you.

Ganked from [livejournal.com profile] erstexman (who got it from [livejournal.com profile] bullchef). I like this assessment; when I first got into it, I assumed (for some unknown reason) right off that my color would be purple. Interesting how this turned out!

What color is your soul painted?


Your soul is painted the color purple, which embodies the characteristics of sensuality, spirituality, creativity, wealth, royalty, nobility, mystery, enlightenment, arrogance, gaudiness, mourning, confusion, pride, delicacy, power, meditation, religion, and ambition. Purple falls under the element of Earth, and was once a European symbol of royalty; today it symbolizes the divine.

Your result for The Perception Personality Image Test...

HFPS - The Humanitarian

Humanity, Foreground, Big Picture, and Shape

You perceive the world with particular attention to humanity. You focus on what's in front of you (the foreground) and how that fits into the larger picture. You are also particularly drawn towards the shapes around you. Because of the value you place on humanity, you tend to seek out other people and get energized by being around others. You like to deal directly with whatever comes your way without dealing with speculating possibilities or outcomes you can't control. You are in tune with all that is around you and understand your life as part of a larger whole. You prefer a structured environment within which to live and you like things to be predictable.
