Where the hell did my Dixie come from? I was member of a civil war re-enactment group and was assigned to the 1ste Virginia Rifle battalion. But that was ages ago. I pride myself for my Queens english.... I am ashamed of myself!

A cruller is a long braided pastry. Sort of like a twisted oblong unraised doughnut that's been fried. You can look it up and they'll show you these round tractor tire looking things and tell you that it is a cruller, but in New England, especially Boston, we do not consider this an actual cruller. It is a wannabe cruller.

I find that most southerners speak with a great deal of charm. Proper English can at times, sound overly pretentious. I think there is a time and a place for it, general conversation is a place for more relaxed language skills and a good place to throw in those charming colloquialisms. I love listening to the NC/SC/GA/LA accents, they're very relaxing.
