You Know You're From Boston OR EASTERN MASS if...

(Compliments of the Right Honourable Bi-Coastal Rooster/DK)

1. You have to dial the area code to call your neighbor.
2. You think crosswalks are for babies.
3. Khaki's are something you start the car with.
4. You think if someone's nice to you, they either want something or they're from out of town (and probably lost).
5. You know how to cross 4 lanes of traffic in 5 seconds.
6. If you hear someone say "pahk the cah in hahvad yahd" one more time you're going to slap them upside the head.
7. Anything past Worcester is "the middle of nowhere"
8. You are amazed when traveling out of town that people who work at McDonald's speak English.
9. You think it's not actually tailgating unless your bumper is touching the car in front of you.
10. You know that a yellow light means at least 5 more cars can get through.....
11. and that a red light means 2 more can.
12. Crown Victoria = undercover cop.
13. Subway is a fast food place. The transportation system is known as the "T", and only the "T".
14. For the cost of your house, you could own a small town in Iowa.
15. There are 6 Dunkin Donuts within 20 minutes of your house.
16. You or someone in your family worked on the Big Dig.
17. When people talk about the "curse of the Bambino", you know what they're talking about (and believe in it too).
18. You know what the blinking red light atop the Hancock tower means in the summer.
19. You think of Rhode Island as the "deep south".
20. You think the Yankee's suck.
21. You believe using a turn signal "gives away your plan to the enemy".
22. If you stay on the same road long enough, it will eventually have 3 names.
23. Someone has honked at you because you didn't peel out the second the light turned green.
24. You've honked at someone because they didn't peel out the second.
the light turned green.
25. All the potholes just add excitement to your driving experiences.
26. Stop signs mean slow down a little, but only if you feel like it.
27. 6 inches of snow is considered a "dusting".
28. 3 days of 90+ heat is definitely a "heat wave" and 63 degree weather is "wicked warm".
29. $15 to park is a bargain.
30. You cringe every time you hear some actor/actress try to do the Boston accent, even if they were born here.

Yeah, although to many New Englanders the Yanks are simply known as "the evil empire"......

Question Phred...It's a Winter WONDER Land!...

'Makes me WONDER when it'll turn to Spring!?...

...'Drove by this morning...
Mighty neighborly of you to let those "bikers" use your place in the OFF season...
BlackStuddedLeather is IN this year!
My Troy-Built snow blower can handle the "dusting" but it WILL have a problem when it sucks up all those empty beer cans in the driveway!

Mike the only NY team I can watch without waves of nausea coming over me are the Giants. But then they play in NJ.

Between the way the Pats played and chasing after kids, the Giants sorta were in a nether world this year. From what I've heard thats how there season went.
