You know you're from Indiana if . . .|
"If you go to the mall I wanna go with."
I never even *knew* this was a regional usage until someone at college (that is, Brandeis) accused me of betraying my roots by using it. :-)
And I can check off most of the others on this list, too. Except for Euchre. I draw the line at Euchre.
My hometown is Valparaiso -- former home of Orville Redenbacher.

South Bend, here (alhtough I was born in Kokomo, while my dad was stationed at Grissom AFB). My mom's cousin lives in Valparaiso. My mom grew up in Hammond, and my dad grew up in Fort Wayne.
You know, I've managed to get a Euchre following going out here. If you're ever feeling like you want to cross that line . . .

My best friend in jr. high/h.s. lived in Kokomo; her dad was at Grissom too (though if you didn't live there long you might not have overlapped at all). We met at nerd camp at Purdue in the summer of, hmm, 1984. After that I used to go visit her in Kokomo practically every vacation.
My mom grew up in Gary and my stepfather in Hobart (I was about to say Hammond but I think that's just where his sister lives now). Ah, Old Home Week. :-)
My dad's still living in Chesterton, and I'm actually supposed to go visit in August, which will be the first time in a couple years I've made it to Indiana. I'm dying to see the Dunes again. Other than that, who would imagine I'd ever be nostalgic for the place?!

I haven't been to the Dunes in years. I think we visited when I went home to get married, um, 9 years ago. Warren Dunes is where we always went, though (that's in Michigan, for those playing from home). I only went to the Indiana Dunes once, and I was less impressed. I don't remember why, exactly, since it was something like 20 years ago.
