bad thing i live in minnesota

and can have a horrible accent... either country or minnesotan it sucks

but i think they missed a couple of things in it as well... i mean i call somethings completely different... like the rain on a warm day is warm rain... (fun for taking showers out side :p) and an easy course is either a cake walk or a bird course and my personal favorite... the day before halloween... all hallows eve...

hey, how about me, i didn't even know half the stuff on there :p

an easy course to me would be a doss.

a cellar is in a house, but big buildings have basements.

and a warm day with rain is IMPOSSIBLE! :p Nah, j/k, but it doesn't have any particular name. lol
