Talk the Talk. Buffy slang is everywhere.

That's so true.. I like the "You want to come with?" phrase
Jen, not to be rude, but that's Midwest slang, or at least Wisconsin. Kind of like our "bubblers" which at times I'm certain is just Wisconsin. You normal people call them "drinking fountains."
Hey! They say "bubblers" in Rhode Island too! My mom is from RI and so I find myself saying it from time to time, which of course gets me odd looks.
Huh. I wonder why it's RI and WI; it's certainly not like they're physically close together.

Come to think of it, we say "You want to come with?" also. Hm.
I'm from Wisconsin too, and I've heard that the word "bubblers" is in reference to a kind of water fountain manufactured in the state.
We have bubblers in Portland, too, and we're not even on the "bubbler" map!

Us left-coasters are always left out.
Oh, it's a mess. Try going to college with lots of kids from Illinois and having completely different regionalisms. They were always pissed off (and vice versa) cause we called it "soda" instead of "pop."

Oh yeah, and I love Buffy. You guys?

There, that better 'lific? heee.

Off topic much?

heee.
"It will never be over."

Sounds pretty ominous. I don't know if I want to use Buffy slang anymore.
