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.

Jul. 22nd, 2006 07:33 pm I'm still alive!

I've pretty much given up on the idea of being able to run 3-4 miles at least 3 nights a weekend. My body is just not made for running long distances... the problem is I can't keep enough oxygen flowing to my brain to not pass out after about 10 minutes.. If I stop and catch my breath for 2 mins, then I'm ok again..

So today I went out and bought a bike!

I think I'll be able to get into a much better rhythem riding than I could running... and maybe after a few months of riding I'll be able to do better running. I might try out the bike path tomorrow, see how I feel. Should be fun.

Feb. 8th, 2006 10:36 pm Discontent

I am a Toastmaster, and we had one of our bi-monthly meetings today. Each meeting the Toastmaster of the Day writes down a word of the day and every who speaks tries to work it in while talking. I didn't get a chance to talk at today's meeting, but the word discontent is a fairly accurate summary of how I feel right now. One of the definitions is "a restless longing for better circumstances."

I am unhappy with my job, there is no challenge to it and I have too much downtime. I need a dynamic environment to keep me interested. I've interviewed for other positions that I feel could keep me busy, one is still pending although I had little hope of landing that job in the first place.

I am unhappy with my health. A few weeks ago some friends and I went to a club that had a local radio station hosting a party. One of the DJs took a picture of us and it's now on their web page... In the picture I look like a fat ghost. Granted, if you just looked at me you wouldn't realize how much I weigh, but I am 50lbs more than I was 10 years ago and about 30lbs more than I was 4 years ago. I looked at the picture and have a new motivation to get somewhat active.

I am unhappy being single. I have actually made the attempts to go out and meet new people lately, but there is no single's scene in the area. It seems like I'm always a day late and a dollar short.

I ask myself the same question nearly every day, do I want to stay where I am? Should I look outside Honda for a job. My brain tells me to stick it out, there won't be many companies that are as employee friendly and stable.. but how long can I sit around and watch awards and promotions handed out just for being there for a long time, and not on merit... I guess if I stick around a few more years I can pick my ass and work my way up the ladder at the same time, it's the way our office works. Should I stay in Troy... in Ohio? I love living here, I think the town size is perfect for me.. but the closest big city, Dayton, is a shithole with nothing to do.

It's just my mid-20s crisis talking (haha ernie, I can still consider myself in the mid 20s ;) )

Jan. 15th, 2006 01:39 am warning,alcohol induced rant

Ok, as the title sugests, I've probably consumed a bit too much alcohol tonight.

i get the feeling that the only friends who have my back are the ones i've recently made. It seems like the poeple I'vee been friends with since high school really don't give a damn about how I feel, but my friends from the past year or so are the ones looking out for my well being. Maybe it shouldn't bother me this much, but I would put my life on the line for any aquantaince of mine, and do whatever i could to make sure they were happy.. and osmetimes I feel like like I'm 2nd rate to them.

Jan. 10th, 2006 10:20 pm Dog

I pretty much made up my mind at work today that I'm going to get a dog this spring. I'm going to get a female lab puppy, just haven't decide on yellow or black. Now I have something to look forward to. I plan on getting the puppy from the same breeder my parents got their dog from, and I hope that it turns out having the same type of attitude, really laid back dog. This is all banking on my roof not needing replaced, apparently whoever put the current roof on did something wrong because water gets into the saupheting... it could be an easy fix, or it could be bad. I think my house is still under a home warranty, so if worse comes to worse it would at least cover some cost... the joys of home ownership. Oh yeah, after a $70 gas bill in November, December turned out to be $160... OUCH. Funny thing was I was gone for 2 weeks in December so my heat was set at 60 and I used no hot water!

Today I saw a cookie brand with the name "spunkmeyer." That makes me think of really bad fraternity "hell week" initiation quests.

Dec. 9th, 2005 09:17 pm I hate shoveling snow!

Ok, so the subject is a bit misleading, I don't actually mind shoveling snow, it's a nice workout and I like being outside. What I hate is flying home from LA to 6" of snow. When I pulled into my driveway, I tried to gun it and get all the way into my garage. Unfortunately for me, my ride, pimptastic, felt like getting stuck in the middle. Since I took the red eye flight back, I only had about 3 hours of sleep and desperately needed a nap, so I did the nap thing before clearing out the driveway.
