I guess we're mostly pretty generic around here.

A few of the 'do you use this or this' questions are throwing the answers, as I don't use either.

Seems right. Parents are from upper midwest, I'm from Texas, so that blends down to nothing. :p

Kind of interesting, though there were a couple of them I couldn't answer accurately.

Soda and pop are pretty much interchangeable for me. So are TP'ing and toilet papering. And I had never heard any of those terms for an easy class so I had to pick whichever was least weird for me. We always called it an "easy A."

I grew up between the Bay Area, CA and Southern UT.
