Did you get caught up in the weffriddles mania? I got to Level 10 and then realized – if I keep wasting time working hard to solve these riddles, my reward is ……. more riddles. f* that.

Here is something I find far more entertaining ……. check out how the snowman changes as your answers change! (love the Martha Stewart one)

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 Northeast


The Midland


The Inland North


The South




The West

[thanks Maryse!]

I grew up in the Philly suburbs. I went to college in PA. However I have reached the tipping point age where I have spent exactly half of my life not living “at home” anymore. I figured I didn’t have that accent – I wondered if I ever did. Nowadays when I talk to friends living in that area, or listen to someone on the radio or television I can hear that accent. I thought for sure that meant I didn’t have one anymore …… this makes me oddly happy!

maybe I’m just relieved I don’t tawk like a New Yawker.

cheese is the fat man’s candy

This weekend had a little bit of everything …..

  • wind
  • rain
  • yardwork
  • a fabulous Halloween party where I got to meet Ginny. Although we had first met at Rhinebeck, this time we got to sit around and chat. She’s so cool that I will ignore our age difference. I will pretend that she’s my age, or I’m her age, or whatever. I just hope that when the daughters meet her, she doesn’t want to hang with them instead…… although D#2 does knit, so there’s always that risk ……
  • movies – I watched Grey Gardens with Flair last night. I had seen this movies before, but not the entire thing. Holy Cow. Watching Little Edie rock a sweater wrapped around her head for 2 hours was …. something else.
  • knitting! chugging away on the Kimono Shawl and The End is in sight. Thank God, because I am madly, truly, deeply sick of this project.

And now I am off to work. I shall leave you all with this quiz and a reminder that Cheese is Never Boring. Sometimes it’s the most interesting thing on the table …….
