They'll have to pry the lipstick out of my cold, dead hand.
You definitely have a Boston accent, even if you think you don't. Of course, that doesn't mean you are from the Boston area, you may also be from New Hampshire or Maine.

It's really more "Northeast Overevolved" than "Boston."I've checked.-J.
P.S. I scored the same, even though my accent is more of "Insufferably Subtropical."
I did take this quiz (thank Septuagent for sending me), and northern NJ was absolutely correct.
my accent is from "the midland," which apparently means "no accent." that's what happens when you grow up in atlanta, then live for years at a time in cleveland, long island, and manhattan. no one can tell where the hell i'm from.
Your Result:Gary, Indiana.It isn't really Midwest and it isn't east either. It is kind of an airy, nondescript vacuuous nothingness that kind of permeates the atmosphere until every one is asleep. So shut the hell up already, willya?I hate these things...
My bar graph showed strong and equal amounts of Boston and West.That translated to "The Midland"Also, I stole this because I'm lazy. Just ask Hubby who glared at me this morning as he loaded the car with emergency dry cleaning. He'll say I'm lazy but I say let the laundry do itself.
Hmm. I got Midland the first time and Boston the second time. Apparently I don't know how I sound when I speak.
