But I call a 'drinking fountain' a bubbla (bubbler). Why wasn't that a choice?!

WOW! That's the first I've seen without "General English" at the top!

I've heard that some folks call a drinking fountain a bubbler...LOL. My mom and dad used terms that weren't listed either.

I'm a New Englander through and through! Of course being raised in a multi generational household added to such things being drilled into my head!

Sam gets upset when I speak with an accent (his family is Harvard through and through, and wouldn't speak with an accent if you paid them), but after I get off work I'm a cross between Boston and Rhode Island. I don't know if you're familiar with Rhode Island accents, but they're pretty interesting!

LOL! Sounds like a cross between Maine and Cape Cod!

Kind of. All the New England accents tend to blend if you don't know what you're hearing.
Mark: The Torchboywondermark on November 8th, 2005 10:57 pm (UTC)
Yeah...kind of like Philly and Baltimore!

When I was out today, I saw signs for both doughboys and weiners (and of course posted pictures) - talk about local color!!
Mark: SW Hanboywondermark on November 8th, 2005 07:15 pm (UTC)
Doughboys? Aren't those soldiers from WWI?!
Su: handsralphiere on November 8th, 2005 07:18 pm (UTC)

Dough boys are fried dough!! I like mine sprinkled with powdered sugar!
Mark: Invisible manboywondermark on November 8th, 2005 07:29 pm (UTC)
Fried dough! Ahhhhhhhhhhhh...now that I like!! ~munch~
Su: gravikissralphiere on November 8th, 2005 07:39 pm (UTC)
They're good fresh, when they're so hot they burn your fingertips! *drool*
