    Ya Can't Take the Southern Outta the Belle!

    "American by birth, Southern by the Grace of God!"  How very well spoken the gentleman was! While I have been transplanted to California, I still long for my Old Kentucky Home. Home is more than a spot on a map, it is the maner in which one was raised, the scents...

    I'm not a lady and I'm not from the south,

    I'm a man from New Hampshire but I gotta say I love the accent on southern women. I don't get the pleasure of hearing it often, I think southern women avoid the northeast like the plague but man oh man is it sexy. Granted I can't really distinguish certain dialects state to...

    I Am a Proud Southern Belle.

    I can make tea (our kinda tea, not hot and not kool aid mix crap!) and fried chicken (fried anything).  I have the accent, although not as strong as others, but it doesn't make me stupid (like I've heard from many pea brained yankees).  My favorite movie is GWTW...

    I was born and raised in TN.

    I used to hate that and my accent, but I've changed my tune. My accent may not be very thick, but it's definitely there. I think being an English major has effected how I say things a bit; I know I try not to sound too redneck (not that there's anything wrong with that :)). But...

    Southern Charm

    I was pretty much raised back and forth between North Carolina and this lil holler of a town in West Virginia. About 7 years ago we moved way up past the line to Michigan, thankfully haven't lost my twang at all. People still point it out because I say things like si-gogglin',y...

    Not From the South, But...

    I'm not from the south (although I did live in Arkansas for about one year), but a southern accent from a lady is VERY sexy. Just my humble opinion. :)
