MaryDell Harrington commented on kim holloway's blog post Two First Names: Better Than One?
"I would love to see a list of double names that begin with Mary.  My mother is "Mary Louise" and Dad was "Jimmie Dell," thus my name "Mary Dell." In the south, people get that I have been and always will be called…"

Two First Names: Better Than One?

Practically all the new parents I know in Seattle have saddled their newborns with two middle names. And not short, easy-to-remember names either. More along the lines of Rasputin Marlowe Fabian Jones (or more likely Jones-Smith) for a boy. Or Josephine Emily Prudence Smith for a girl. I’m not sure how they come up with these,…See More

Buffets: Walk In, Waddle Out

Buffet restaurants in the South are like Starbucks here in Seattle: you can’t throw a fork without hitting one. Don’t go throwing your fork though, you’ll be needing it. In the interest of health codes and common decency, one uses a clean plate for each trip to the food troughs. But you’re sometimes expected to carry on…See More

Community Cookbooks: Why Southern Cuisine Reigns Supreme

In a world of celebrity chefs, popular food bloggers and recipe sharing sites, y’all might be surprised how many Southerners still consult rinky-dink, fund-raising cookbooks put together by their local church or community organization.Not even the Baptists consider perusing food porn a sin, nevertheless, you will find none in the pages of these DIY spiral-bound cookbooks. What you will find…See More

"Leigh Ann, How weird is it that Coke Zero has high fructose corn syrup? How does it manage to add that without calories? Lisa, That's funny! My Southern customs confuse friends here in Seattle all the time!"

Lisa Frame commented on kim holloway's blog post Coke is IT! Except When it's Not.
"This is fantastic. My mother-in-law in Korean and when I poured a Sprite, but called it a Coke, hilarity ensued. She thinks I'm strange and that our customs are even stranger. "

In many parts of the county, you’ll find folks sipping “pop,” “soda,” or perhaps even “soda pop.” But for folks below the Mason Dixon, “coke” is it.



For Southerners, the brand name of Coca Cola has gone the way of Kleenex and Band-Aid. So if you’re actually hankering for “The Real Thing,” you’ll need to specify.
