Damn, 19 of them to some degree or another.

Had to snort at #10; I have two new asshole neighbors who are obviously young and without kids, and who have no concept of how low frequency sound travels...or distance...or being inside to carry on a five person conversation about a trip to Austin where the central theme seemed to be "pot was smoked", at 3:00am.

TJ's still have some really great products though. Some of the best pastrami I've ever eaten.

I scored 7.5 BTW. (I have no car payments).
I don't drink so I don't know jack about wines or how they taste. But I knew the answer to the sub $4.00 wine question. That has to count for something.


Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.

You know you're from California if:

1. Your coworker has 8 body piercings and none are visible.

2. You make over $300,000 and still can't afford a house.

3. You take public transportation and are shocked at two people carrying on a conversation in English.

4. Your child's 3rd-grade teacher has purple hair, a nose ring, and is named Flower.

5. You can't remember . . is pot illegal?

6. You've been to a baby shower that has two mothers and a sperm donor.

7. You have a very strong opinion about where your coffee beans are grown, and you can taste the difference between Sumatran and Ethiopian.

8. You can't remember . . . is pot illegal?

9. A really great parking space can totally move you to tears.

10. Gas costs $1.00 per gallon more than anywhere else in the U.S.

11. Unlike back home, the guy at 8:30 am at Starbucks wearing a baseball cap and sunglasses who looks like George Clooney really IS George Clooney.

12. Your car insurance costs as much as your house payment.

13. You can't remember . . .is pot illegal?

14. It's barely sprinkling rain and there's a report on every news station: "STORM WATCH."

15. You pass an elementary school playground and the children are all busy with their cell phones, pagers or PSPs.

16. It's barely sprinkling rain outside, so you leave for work an hour early to avoid all the weather-related accidents.

17. HEY!!!! Is pot illegal????

18. Both you AND your dog have therapists, psychics, personal trainers and cosmetic surgeons.

19. The Terminator is your governor.

20. If you drive illegally, they take your driver's license. If you're here illegally, they want to give you one.

Don't believe everything you think
