Assunto:  so so or more or less?
 
Mensagem: 
I am very familiar with people from Utah. I went to school in Utah. Honestly Utahns hardly ever, if ever at all, use so so while answering the greeting  "how is it going?". They will say things such as "not too bad", "I'm okay", or if they're more familiar with you they will joke and say "not as good as you are", "I am alive", "I'm here", whatever they feel like saying

More or less is used to explain that something was more or less like this. Such as, this book is more about this, it is less about that...and so on.

Now to Sidney, I think you meant "same ol', same ol' " which means the same old stuff from always. The same, nothing new. Nothing interesting going on.
