Where do you live?
« on: December 18, 2019, 01:23:39 PM »
Howdy folks!

Just curious as to where you fine folks live or are from. I live in northern Indiana, in the US: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mishawaka,_Indiana

Please chime in when you have a moment, so I know the proper accent to use when reading your posts.  :P

Nope, I don't actually have any Maine accent, owing to having lived all over the country growing up (Maine, Mass, Florida, NJ, California, Iowa, South Dakota, and probably a couple more). My brother, on the other hand, has a super strong accent. It's amusing.

have lived in Minneapolis/St Paul, MN for the past 10ish years.  uff da.

preceded by a couple years in Chicago IL, about 12 years in Boston Mass, and 4 years in Wisconsin. From Iowa, originally.

several of the people I work with have ridiculous minnesota accents (dontcha know, you betcha) but mine is standard midwestern, pretty similar to Indiana I'd guess.
