Everyone up here (in Ontario) calls soft drinks "pop". Beyond that, each brand is named by its proper name, although coke does tend to be the safe choice when one is not certain what's on the menu.

On a related note, I've been teased occasionally for my odd choice of diction. Some examples:

I say flatmates, everyone else says roommates/housemates.
I occasionally say anti-clockwise, rather than counter-clockwise.
I've taken to saying Alsatian, instead of German Shepard.

I'm sure there are others, I just can't think of any right now.

General name for fizzy drink here, soda.
Also, people seem more familiar with 'coke' for Coca Cola.

Clearly your tastebuds have been permanently damaged, possibly by drinking all of that sludge
(Most of which you probably drank because you got addicted to it pretty damn fast and now can't stop)

I call it Coke, because that's the only brand I will drink.

On another note, I have friends from many (sorta) English speaking countries. Namely South Africa, Canada, England and of course USA.
I learned each person's own strange version of slang and different words for stuff, and use them appropriately.
For example, when I was at my British friend's house and it was a little chilly I asked if I could borrow a jumper.
When my Canadian friend came over I asked him if he wanted some pop (even though all I had was Sprite).

Oh me yarm! I nearly killed people! Didn't see which thread this was. [Sad smiley] Anyhows.

Yey, started school today! Really looking forward to the next year. I should be more social, but sadly, generally I'm not.

Uhm, but I tried asking two or three times for "Cola", but the clerk didn't understand me. My dad came to the rescue and asked for Coke, though.

Must have been a different area, or a slow clerk. It is more often refered to as one of the two main brands (more often coke) but cola isnt uncommon.

I think it was in Newcastle. Somewhere between Newcastle and France, at least. Drove down. I miss England...

Yay! I was granted a scholarship this year too! While it isn't uncommon (the government pays) I'm given money for both living expenses and daily needs~ And out the school year in which I turn 18, my parents, being divorced, redirect child support money to me. <33 *Super happy* Oh, oh, oh, and my class seems nice! I know a couple of them already and, yeah, they seem nice. <3 And there are TWO GIRLS in this class! That's a ratio of 2/35, instead of the 1/70 or something last year... Not that I (necessarily) get to know them, but, yay, girls who like technology are awesome!

Oops, looked again. You know, I've come to realize, milk is actually really good. Just plain milk. If it's form the fridge, pour, back in and drink, sort of. If that madeany sense. My fridge is less than half a meter away~

I heard that if you mix powdered milk and Coca-Cola, it tastes good.

I never tried it because that just sounds stupid.

Mostly naming his beverages after Final Fantasy items. And he has an awesome avatar. I LOVE that pun~

Firefly's intro is seriously addicting.

I really love Yann Tiersen's music~ Which reminds me, got to get the rest of his CDs. Shopping spree at Amazon? Gogogo! Or, soon. Still haven't started getting my scholarship - virtually out of money.

I should at least take the dishes out of the washer. That'll get my mom in a good mood early on.
Then I'll enjoy myself.
