Y'all Think I'm from Dixie?

Via Still Life with Woodpecker (where else?), here's an interesting quiz that's supposed to tell you whether you're "Yankee or Dixie," based on your dialect. Being a New Jersey-to-New Mexico transplantee, I was interested and slightly amused to discover that my result was:

52% (Dixie). Barely into the Dixie category.

Actually, my dialect, such as it is, appears to be an odd mishmash of different US regionalisms, with a healthy dollop of British influence as a result of watching too much BBC programming in my youth, as well as spending large chunks of my time trading e-mails with people on the other side of the Atlantic.
