Glancing through this, it seems to me that it fails to distinguish between regional terminology (e.g., apparently in New Orleans they call cottage cheese "cream cheese"; some places the thing you drink water out of on a playground or in school is called a "water fountain" and some places it's called a "bubbler") and items that only exist in a particular region (e.g., there's only one word, albeit with alternate spellings, for "lutefisk", it's just that lutefisk is generally only made in the Upper Midwest; an "egg cream" is a drink that's not widely known outside the NYC area, as far as I'm aware, but it's not that it's known by different names elsewhere, it's just not made elsewhere). Those, two me, are separate things, and this dictionary appears to consider them to be the same.

    Also, egg creams are tasty.
    *ing bubblers.

    Also, they are. One of the local Jewish delis makes egg creams.

      I don't care what anyone says...it is a bubbler!

      Today at work, I received an email from a customer that is in Canada and they had a revision on their order that is suppose to be different from their toque. I did not know that toque is Canadian for knit cap. Then speaking with the customer today on the phone, I swear that I was talking to Bob and Doug McKensie.

        Add to that list the current guitarist Gus G. He comes from a more extreme metal background, but he's absolutely amazing. He won't get a chance to write anything memorable with Ozzy, but he's absolutely deserving of the job.

              McKenzie. And that's terrible that you didn't know what a toque (pronounce "took," long o sound) was.

              TGIMFF.

              10 hour shift today. Started at 8. Set my alarm for 6:30. Woke up at 7, because apparently I hit the snooze button 3 times (no recollection of this). Sorry I missed the Friday announcement.

              How busy is work? Today was 100% OT for 3 different workers (all 10 hour shifts today), I was on OT time starting at about 1, along with 3 others. We're taking bets on whether or not DHead Boss (on vacation this week) chews out Cool Boss about the OT (despite Head Boss having Cool Boss' side, given that he was actually here this week).
              Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

                I researched it before I called the customer to understand what the hell he was saying. I asked 4 other people at work and they didn't know what it was. We have massive failure at work. I speak Wisconsin and partial Minnesotan. I fail at Canadian. Mr. wore Black on the other hand....I swear he is one Rush song away from being Canadian.

                  He and one of my buddies should hang out. Buddy flies a Canadian flag, had everyone sing O Canada in church at his wedding, and he isn't Canadian. Just loves hockey.

                    It has been awhile since I have seen Strange Brew.

                    Wisconsin has rubbed off on me, again. When we lived in MN, we had a Canadian Flag hanging in our living room.

                      Your buddy sounds like tCBG. (except the wedding part, he hasn't had a wedding)

                              Work like I work, and have a big vacation with possibilities. Then re-assess. So * you.
