10:44 am - I'ma change my first name to Ira and work for NPR.
I'm craving pizza.

I'm craving pizza, but I don't have any, and I refuse to buy it because I have a cold and I can't taste anything. Having pizza without satiation will not placate my cravings. It sounds like I picked up this cold at No Brand Con, because most of the people I know who went got sick a couple of days later.

So I'm eating coffee ice cream, which I can taste, and it's probably not significantly worse for me than pizza, right? Right? Oh, well.

Anyway, this survey says I have a good radio-friendly voice, so I'm thinking of quitting my job in the credit card industry and going to work for NPR. What's that you say? No credentials? Too nasal? Pfft. Whateva.

What American accent do you have?

Northern. Whether you have the world famous Inland North accent of the Great Lakes area, or the radio-friendly sound of upstate NY and western New England, your accent is what used to set the standard for American English pronunciation (not much anymore now that the Inland North sounds like it does).

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?

Incidentally, when I was younger, I used to think that guy's name was Ira Plato. I wonder if that's a common misconception. Probably not.

I tried a similar poll not long ago. It said I have a Midwestern accent. This one claims it's Northern but they also include East River South Dakota. I'd say the other poll is more accurate but my friend Sheri took it at the same time I did. She too supposedly has a Midwestern accent, tho' if you heard her speak you'd swear she was from London.

I don't think that your voice is too nasal for radio; I think you're too self-concious for radio.
