It's almost like there are these periods where our relationship is smooth and steady, and then there are times when it's like standing on the edge of this gorgeous, wonderful waterfall and just letting yourself drop, knowing that there's a safe pool of water ready to catch you at bottom. You take the plunge and you're in wayyyy over your head, but oh man, it's exhilarating, it's breathtaking, it's just incredible and you feel better than you ever have before and the water is cool and refreshing and exactly what you needed.

Sam is my waterfall.

Grew up in New England, of course. And then there were the Dark Years with the Abusive Australian.

Man...most of these are terms that I've never, ever heard before. Ever.
Or the right option wasn't there.

Never heard before: Flamin' turkey, regular coffee I don't drink coffee), tea leaf, timbit, tripe and trotters, bush pig, rag-baby, dollymop, Billies, figjam, double double, step ins, good grapes.

I know 'jerry' as soldier slang for Germans, circa WWI and WWII. I could SWEAR a blue bottle is a flower. Gorby is slang for Gorbachev, but not a more general slang term for anything else as far as I'm concerned.

So what does that leave? Cougar, chav, cheese eater, barbie, goober, fluff, knock someone up, ginder, blinkered, and packie (which I only know because my college roommate asked where one was and I needed it explained to me).

So...not a particularly good test for me. Heh.

Packy is VERY New England. Knock someone up is get em pregnant where I come from (Boston), but is bang on their door where my ex came from (Australia). Chav is British for some kind of white trash emo kid. Blinkered is Aussie and Brit for drunk. Grinder is a sub sandwich in much of New England.

Heh. Those were the ones I knew. :)

Though we disagree on a few. Packy isn't all that New England; I think of it more as New York. That's where my roommate was from in college; I'm from Vermont and I hadn't heard it until then...we just called 'em liquor stores.
Blinkered is...blind. Narrow-minded.

Otherwise, we agree.

Might be Massachusetts, RI and NH centric on that one, ask somebody from those states what a packy is, they'll point you in the right direction. :)
