    Interesting [link=http://www.adamsonhigh.com/yankee_dixie_quiz.html] dialect interpreter[/link] a friend sent me. I scored 48% (JUST barely on the yankee side).

    I took that quiz a long time ago, I was pretty Southern. ;)

    On a historical note, I would side with Confederates on more issues than the Union I believe. I study a lot about the Civil War, it's one of my favorite subjects to read about. So I guess ranking with Dixie on the quiz suits me. ;)

    57% (Dixie). Barely into the Dixie category.

    I could have gone quite a few ways. I call things by both names in a lot of cases.

    Huh, I would have called myself a Northeastern type person myself. Interesting nonetheless, along with a drive thru liquor store. I'm not sure if that's a terrible or great idea...

    You mean soda Amy? And do restaurant people look at you funny when you ask for a pop?

    57% - barely Dixie. I never would have guessed!

    Drive thru liquor stores rock!!! I know East St. Louis has one and I think there's still one on the west end of Belleville too.

    36% "A definitive Yankee". I can't imagine why. Just because it kept saying "great Lakes" region. I'm a big cheese head. :D
