    Don't come to Utah, then. That 't' seems to be optional. Layton is Lay'un. Mountain is moun'un...etc (it bugs me too)

    That's because they need it to add to Warshington.

    i think she has a.d.d and o.c.d (so does GM, they exhibit the same behaviors)

    her lack of self control is probably physiological, if she is taking adderall why doesnt it calm her?

    every single time someone has told her not to do something, she obsesses about it (her eyes jump around and face twitches) then she goes and does it anyways

    mccrae needs to be more assertive with her, he has only told her to STFU twice but both times she calmed down briefly

    It's that way in NM, too! At least so in Northern NM. It drove me crazy when I lived there.
    I have a 2 1/2 year old and when I say words like mountain and curtain, I emphasize the T, so that she never slurs over it! :-)

    In the southern midwest states, I have heard a lot of slang words like Ya'll, You'ins, etc. Someone told me once why they do it and it made sense to me. They said it is a "lazy way of talking", where they are so laid back that they dont take the time to speak the words properly so they take short cuts and chop out letters and merge words together.

    That was the best explanation I ever heard as to how the "south" ended up talking with their slang.

    Man, an Amanda eviction tonight would have been perfect. She would have melted down after getting voted out and then been useless in the "Returning Housemate" challenge. Not like she could win it, even at her best.

    I love Janelle (the real one) but sometime between her first seasons and this last one she picked up a couple of valley girl words that bugged the crap out of me. The one that comes to mind was "button". She would say, "I pressed the buh' un".

    Actually, it's the more efficient way to speak . . . y'all!

    See? That's the dropping of the letter t that drives me crazy.

    I have heard news commentators and other "educated" people do it so often ... especially with the word "important" because it is used so often in these broadcasts.

    Grrrrrrrrr!
