So, a couple of random questions for y'all:

1) What do YOU call a water fountain? 
2) What do YOU call your grandparents?
3) Is dude now a national term, or is it still sort of a regional thing?
4) So, yesterday was 4/20. Is this actually celebrated anywhere?


1) A water fountain. :)
2) In English, grandma/grandpa; I won't include the Spanish.
3) It's used in southeast Texas. >>
4) Not really here, though I heard it is in California...?

1. Drinking fountain.
2. Grandma and Grandpa (+ last names, as needed to differentiate)
3. *I* use it all the time, but I grew up in Southern Oregon in the 80s, which means I got a lot of California slang. Don't hear it around here (Idaho) all that much from anyone *but* me, but nobody treats me like a Martian for saying it, either.
4. Didn't know it was a "day" as such, but locally there's always a Hemp Fest in the city park this time of year, usually on the weekend (it was held 4/17 this year), so, yeah, I guess it is observed locally (college town, note).
