Administrators, Heed My Words!

Welcome. Sweet tea?

I'm in South Carolina. I know lots of y'all live here or used to. What's new in your neck of the woods?

Aw, man, I thought y'all might be discussing the movie in here. I miss it. I'm not from the south, but I'm fixin' to move south soon.

Sorry, girl. Where to?

Sweet tea is an abomination in the eyes of the Lord.

I only drink unsweet tea.

Since I'm from Chicago, I think I'm a reasonable authority on what the South is, and I think Texas qualifies. At least, Dallas does.

I'm a damn Yankee transplanted, and I LOVE sweet tea with all that is in me.

I think the devil drives a Coupe DeVille

My daughter is spending the summer in your town, yoyoma, and I think she will be having Sonic withdrawal when she goes back to school. She stops everyday on her way to work for a Cherry Limeade, and makes a special trip out there on her days off. A wild one, she is.

I saw Chick-fil-A in the highlight and started salivating. It's totally unreasonable to be disappointed that there is no actual discussion of the ultimate chicken sandwich in here, but there you have it. (I am currently living in the midwest, in an area where a mention of Chick-fil-A is met with "Huh? What's that?" Poor souls have no clue what they are missing.)

I grew up in Tennessee and Georgia, and went to college in South Carolina. And I can't stand sweet tea. But both my folks were transplanted Yankees, so that might have been part of it--we never had sweet tea at home AFAIK.

Racehorse -- Thursday, July 08, 2004 -- 01:31:06 AM -- 9 of 1388

I have never been to a Chick-fil-A.

more glib than Matt

Oh, god, chick-fil-a. What about Taco Bueno- is that a southern thing? I've only seen them in OK and TX. yum.

I had Chick-Fil-A for lunch today. Oh, that was good. I'm going home to Michigan for a week and I had to get my fix before I left. Manix, I think Taco Bueno is an OK & TX thing. I've seen them when I'm at the MILs but they're not here in SC.

Get with the program. Go get some Thirkell & stop whining like a gormless ninny.

I'm in, being in Texas. We have Chick-Fil-A here but I don't eat at them much because there are none near us. They have great billboard advertisements, too.

Dear Vegetables, Now I know why braindead people are named after you and not rocks. At least rocks don't taste like DESPAIR.

I'm here! I've never lived in the South, but I have relatives in Tennessee, Georgia, and Alabama, and I visit frequently. It's barely broken 80 here in Ontario this summer, and it's driving me nuts... I need Alabama-in-August heat. Fortunately, I'm heading to Durham in a couple of weeks!

I miss Waffle House like nobody's business. And White Lily flour and red velvet cake, too.

So, to sum up, it'll take 2/3 of both houses and 3/4 of the states to approve an amendment saying that 2 straight parents are better than one straight parent, which is still better than 2 gay parents which is equal to a guy screwing a turtle -Jon Stewart

I'm in the Chapel Hill area of NC. It's hot as a motherfucker right now. I love this area 9 months of the year, but mid June through mid September are just plain miserable.

But Chick-fil-a is fabulous. I heart their little nuggets with sweet and sour dipping sauce.

Waffle house once gave me the most violent food poisoning of my life. Now I know: breakfast food at Waffle House gets ordered/cooked/sold quickly and therefore is fine. The hamburgers, on the other hand, may have been sitting out for a little while before you came along.

This morning, I was checking messages at work and couldn't, for the life of me, figure out what this lady said her name was. It sounded like see-ya. Turns out, it was Syd.

As you might guess, I'm also a yankee transplant.

I love Jesus, but I drink a little

You know what I'm craving? A dipped cone from Dairy Queen. What did Ruby call it the other day? A mule something or other?

Racehorse -- Thursday, July 08, 2004 -- 02:03:42 AM -- 16 of 1388

Oh, I haven't been to a "Wopple" House in a couple of years.

"North Korea has just launched another missile. Does this guy have anything better to do with his life?"--President Trump (tweeting)

Lawzy what a great idea.

Pass that Skin-so-Soft afore these skeeters drain me as dry as a jug of buttermilk at a Baptist homecoming.

< delurks>

I only drink unsweet tea.

I was born and raised in Florida. My husband's from Alabama. Sweet tea is pretty much a sign of civilization as far as we're concerned.

Chik-fil-A is the only fast food I'll eat.

Racehorse -- Thursday, July 08, 2004 -- 02:21:53 AM -- 19 of 1388

I see Wal-Mart mentioned in the highlight. But Wal-Mart isn't Southern, is it?

There is not enough WTF in all the land. -Alissa

Wal-Mart started in Arkansas.
