The Dialect Map
wonderful little quiz up that is supposed to tell you where you grew up based on 20 questions about what you call things and how you pronounce words. I cheated a little by using the words I used as a kid rather than those I use now -- I have switched from "lightning bug" to "firefly" -- but that was only a couple of questions. And they found my home, in Richmond, Virginia. Impressive.

I came out as being from southern California. Gnarly, Dude.
Since you are the least Texan person I have ever met, it is hardly surprising that they couldn't place you.
I refuse to accept that my children can't differentiate between marry and Mary/merry!!
It got me. I hail from New York.
