Places I've Been (and a couple other things)

Here's an interesting visual of all the states I've visited. Sorry the whole map doesn't show. The eastern half of the U.S. is completely unvisited.

Now I see where I'd like to go in the future. How about Kentucky, Tennessee, West Virginia? Or the whole "South"?

Here's another tidbit, this time showing what kind of English I speak.

Your Linguistic Profile:

65% General American English

10% Dixie

10% Upper Midwestern

5% Midwestern

0% Yankee


And one more: Assuming I answered the questions correctly-- and if the results are worth anything-- if I were a donut this is what I'd be. (These quizzes are sometimes pretty silly, but I love having a picture of a donut on my blog.)

You Are a Boston Creme Donut

You have a tough exterior. No one wants to mess with you.
But on the inside, you're a total pushover and completely soft.
You're a traditionalist, and you don't change easily.
You're likely to eat the same doughnut every morning, and pout if it's sold out.


If you know me, what do you think? Is this what I'm like?

That's pretty impressive compared to how mine would look--congratulations on being well-travelled! I would fare better on a map of states that had the states in which I had friends marked.

Ok, now you have to fix that never been to the eastern side of the U.S.! We are in TN and would put you up if you come our way! Just wait until next spring when hopefully everything is green again! The heat has killed everything!
