Who'da thunk?
Noticed Kate at The Last Amazon, there's another quiz:

Your Linguistic Profile:

65% General American English

15% Dixie

10% Yankee

5% Midwestern

5% Upper Midwestern

Huh. Not sure what to make of it. A lot of the questions I used none of their suggestions.

For example, when the sun is shining while it's raining, do you call it "The Devil Is Beating His Wife"? I have never heard that one, but a South African friend of mine used to call it "A Monkey's Wedding". I always thought that was cute.

Thanks for the words of encouragement in my last post. Updates - some good, some bad.

For the bad, the interview didn't go as well as I would have hoped. I could do the job and was well qualified, but I just felt soooo....um, judged. Yeah, I know that's what interviews are about, but it wasn't a nice feeling. The lady that I would be replacing is not exactly brimming with joy of leaving her job (she's due with her first baby in early May). They said they'd call...I'm not holding my breath.

Good news. Todd called. I woke up to a voice saying "You are such a freak, good thing I love freaks". The romantic moment over, we're back to bantering. I can do that.

Vancouver, British Columbia
A patriotic Canadian full of visions of a better Canada, random thoughts and a lot of hot air. Who am I? A struggling writer and photographer, who looks forward to a better Canada. I read. A lot. I learn. A lot. I push myself. A lot. The world is a small place, and getting smaller every day. I'm proud to have friends in every corner of the earth, and abide by the old adage that there are no strangers, only friends we haven't met yet.
