My turn for the accent test...

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.

This is interesting because I have never lived in the Midland area, I don't even have family there.  I was too young when I left southern Florida to pick up anything there, I grew up in southern California and spent the last 10 years in northern Jersey.  Then again, I grew up listening to my father's gentle tidewater Virginia accent (faded by time, but still recognizable) and my mom's northern Ohio-warped-by-years-in-Buffalo accent.  

Maybe, the 'accent that is not an accent'  is the two coastal accents cancelling each other out? :D
