Your daughter could most definitely do some kind of show biz! Everytime I see her pic I'm just blown away by how cute she is!

I have a Western PA accent, but I generally don't hear it in my voice unless I am talking to another person from that region.

Amanda, you DO have a VERY pronounced Texas accent. I think you have heard my voice, Wile E. and QueenMunchy. It IS high pitched but I dont think my accent is THAT bad. Or else I'm just fooling myself. lol

I sound attractive, apparently, according to a man I spoke with on the phone today.

That being said... I don't feel like I have any notable regional accent. I do, however, have an annoying voice! Sometimes I'll hear it recorded and wonder how I got stuck with it.

You sound so perky, and your son is adorable. I like when he grabbed onto your head during your demo. Cute!

Wow, everyone sounds great on their videos. No discernible accents that I could detect. The baby videos are adorable.

I love New England accents. I don't believe I've ever heard a heavy Pittsurgh accent, but a colleauge gave me this book:

Good stuff!

There are a few youtube videos and recordings of me floating around the internet, but I'm too embarrassed to link to them. I think I have a nice voice, though--I think it's one of my best qualities. I grew up in NY and, even though I don't think I have a very noticeable NY accent, I'm sure there are some subtle giveaways.

I think my voice is funky. My mom has a great speaking voice, and I didn't inherit that at all. I actually wanted to go into broadcasting, but the voice was all wrong.

Pixie, you sound like you should host a children's program. You sound sweet but authoritative.

Mims, you don't sound at all like I thought you would. I pegged you with a lower speaking voice for some reason.

subbrock, you sound just fine! And M is adorable (I'd say she's the second cutest little girl I've ever seen! )

yes! majerle will usually add a necklace or a scarf, just to give it that edge. but she has the exact same "outfits".

You do not sound weird! lol, silly...

and yeah, I know. My voice sounds a LOT deeper in my head than it does in recordings. Bothers the crap out of me...

Awesome! Danae likes jewelry, too. She's always trying to swipe mine.

I forgot to mention earlier that Webbie and Trenell sound exactly like I thought they would.

Mims, what annoys me most lately isn't so much my speaking voice (which I think is kinda funky still...sorta nasally and deep at the same time) but the fact that I say "like" and "um" a lot. I never used to. My SIL says it's probably because I'm braindead from lack of sleep since I have a kiddo now...LOL

Speckla, we have almost the same sort of vocal history. I lived in RI until I was 14 and then moved to Florida, then Texas. It's occassionally happened that all three accents will pop out in ONE SENTENCE!
