Too Funny!

Julia's new show, The New Adventures of Old Christine, is a hoot!

So are these thoughts about being a PacNW person. I've added my thoughts in bold too...

You know the state flower (Mildew).
Does moss count as a flower?

You feel guilty throwing aluminum cans or paper in the trash.
So true!

Use the statement "sun break" and know what it means.
I had never heard this until I moved here and now I can't imagine not knowing what it means.

You know more than 10 ways to order coffee.
Tea too.

You know more people who own boats than air conditioners.

You feel overdressed wearing a suit to a nice restaurant.
Ain't that the truth!

You stand on a deserted corner in the rain waiting for the "Walk" signal.
Such good citizens we are.

You consider that if it has no snow or has not recently erupted, it is not
a real mountain.

You can taste the difference between Starbucks, Seattle's Best, and Veneto's.
Sad to say this is true.

You know the difference between Chinook, Coho, and Sockeye Salmon.
You mean you don't?

You know how to pronounce Sequim, Puyallup, Issaquah, Oregon, Yakima, and Willamette.

You consider swimming an indoor sport.

You can tell the difference between Japanese, Chinese, and Thai food.
Bring it on baby!

In winter, you go to work in the dark and come home in the dark-while only working eight-hour days.
So very true.

You never go camping without waterproof matches and a poncho.

You are not fazed by "Today's forecast: showers followed by rain," and "Tomorrow's forecast: rain followed by showers."
Living the life.

You have no concept of humidity without precipitation.

You know that Boring is a town in Oregon and not just a state of mind.
I've even been there!

You can point to at least two volcanoes, even if you cannot see through
the cloud cover.

You notice, "The mountain is out" when it is a pretty day and you can actually see it.
This phrase cracks me up. Cracks me up even more when we actually say it.

You put on your shorts when the temperature gets above 50, but still wear your hiking boots and parka.
It's a state of mind people.

You switch to your sandals when it gets about 60, but keep the socks on.
Never wear socks but when it hits 55 or higher, the flips flops are rocking.

You have actually used your mountain bike on a mountain.

You think people who use umbrellas are either wimps or tourists.

You buy new sunglasses every year, because you cannot find the old ones after such a long time.

You measure distance in hours.
Did this even today!

You often switch from "heat" to "a/c" in the same day.
Been there.

You design your kid's Halloween costume to fit under a raincoat.

You know all the important seasons: Almost Winter, Winter, Still Raining (Spring), Road Construction (Summer), Deer & Elk Season (Fall).
