Not Really Surprising...

100% Dixie. Is General Lee your grandfather?!


Very interesting test! I liked being able to see where certain phrases were common...and happy to know that I was selecting the most Texan option among them. :)

Re: Not Really Surprising...

Yeah - I had to go back and click my real answers - I was too busy clicking to see where other phrases came from.

And I'm so not surprised with your answer.

I got "87% Dixie. Do you still use Confederate money?"

Heh. I guess you can take the girl out of the South but you can't take the South out of the girl. Funny test. I never even heard of some of those phrases. (And I don't know of any other way to pronouce 'caught'.)

:)

26% Dixie. You are a Yankee Doodle Dandy.

I would've scored lower, but there were questions where I couldn't find my region's phrasing.

Ha ha - I'm totally not surprised :)

What are you up to these days, anyway?

I left Microsoft a couple years back and now I'm working for NASA at Arizona State Univesity. Where I live with my two kitties Cinder and Jack <http://www.muttlaugh.com/photos/kittens>. I play tons of poker. Your other entry mentioned a possible new job? What's up with that?

Ok, so I'm a little late at responding here, but better late than never.

Arizona? That's a haul from Seattle! What made you make that move?

I got a promotion to be the global network services manager for CSC on the Dun & Bradstreet account, which required me to move to New Jersey - fun, huh?

Sadly, the poker playing is minimal, due to the fact that I'm two hours from AC, which is a LONG drive.
