You know you're from ______when Posted on 07-20-2005

DSTined
Nashville, TN
Sorry if this has already been posted, just thought it was funny. Find yours at http://www.blogthings.com/wherefrom.html You know you're from Nashville when... The word "snow" means a week off from school and maybe even work. To you Paris is near Waverly and Athens and Rome are in Georgia. You stop your car for ambulances, fire trucks and hearses. You take down your Christmas tree before January first. Someone within hearing distance is singing or humming. There's a musical instrument somewhere in the house. You don't do things without "fixin" to do them first. You judge things as "alright", "fine" or "right fine". Your food has beans or Tobasco in it. You know what a T-Rac is. You "luck up" and not "luck out". Drivers stop before they turn. Someone you know has written a song. You own the boots but can't ride a horse. No one around you is a native Nashvillian either. You run red lights so you won't be hit from behind. Fast food is faster inside than at the drive-up window. To you a well-trained dog stays in the bed of the truck. Half of the people at work know someone in entertainment. Strangers ask if you're doin alright, and friends ask what's goin on. You ignore country stars but dance and holler in front of football players. You actually get these jokes and pass them on to other friends from Nashville.

You've been **** at Action Park. You know that the only people who call it "Joisey" are from New York (usually The Bronx) or Texas. You don't think of citrus when people mention "The Oranges." You know that it's called "Great Adventure," not "Six Flags." You've ordered a hard roll with butter for breakfast. You've known the way to Seaside Heights since you were seven. You've eaten at a diner, when you were stoned or ****, at 3 am. Whenever you park, there's a Camaro within three spots of you. You remember that the "Two Guys" were from Harrison. You know that the state isn't one big **** refinery. At least three people in your family still love Bruce Springsteen, and you know what town Jon Bon Jovi is from. You know what a "jug handle" is. You know that a WaWa is a convenience store. You know that the state isn't all farmland. You know that there are no "beaches" in new Jersey - there's "The Shore," and you know that the road to the shore is "The Parkway" not "The Garden State Highway." You know that "Piney" isn't referring to a tree. Even your school cafeteria made good Italian subs, and, you call it a "sub" not a "submarine sandwich" or worse yet, a "hoagy" or a "hero." You remember the song from the Palisades Park commercials. You know how to properly negotiate a Circle. You knew that the last question had to do with driving. You know that "Acme" is an actual store, not just a Warner Bros creation. You know that this is the only "New..." state that doesn't require "New" to identify it (like, try ...Mexico, ...York, ...Hampshire (doesn't work, does it?). You know how to translate this conversation: "Jeet yet?" "No, Jew?" You only go to New York City for day trips, and you only call it "The City." You know that a "White Castle" is the name of BOTH a fast food chain AND a fast food sandwich. You consider a corned beef sandwich with lettuce and mayo a sacrilege. In the 80's you wore your hair REALLY high. You don't think "What exit" (do you live near?) is very funny. You know that the real first "strip shopping center" in the country is Route 22. You know that no respectable New Jerseyan goes to Princeton - that's for out-of-staters. The Jets-Giants game has started fights at your school or local bar. You live within 20 minutes of at least three different malls. You can see the Manhattan skyline from some part of your town. You've gotten on the wrong highway trying to get out of Willowbrook Mall. You've eaten a Boardwalk cheesesteak with vinegar fries. You have a favorite Atlantic City casino. You refer to all highways and interstates by their numbers. Every year you have at least one kid in your class named Tony. You know the location of every clip shown in the Sopranos opening credits. You know that people from North Jersey go to Seaside Heights, and people from Central Jersey go to Belmar and people from South Jersey go to Wildwood. You weren't raised in New Jersey -- you were raised in either North Jersey, Central Jersey or South Jersey. You don't consider Newark or Camden to actually be part of the state. You remember the stores Korvette's, Two Guys, Rickel's, Channel, Bamberger's and Orbach's. You also remember Palisades Amusement Park. You start planning for Memorial Day weekend in February. You've never pumped your own gas. (well...now that im at Hampton...i had to learn fast) You actually get these jokes and pass them on to other friends from New Jersey.

You Know You're From Philadelphia When... You punctuate every sentence with, "You know" at least twice. You want olive ****, not mayonnaise on your "hoagie". You hate the Redskins You hate Dallas. You realize that your favorite dessert is "wooder ice". You find yourself using "yo" and "youse guys" when talking long-distance to family members. You know how to spell Schuylkill. You pronounce ACME "ACK-A-ME". You think that $2,500 a year for insurance on a 1977 Toyota Corolla is a bargain. You find youself at a nice restaurant thinking "I wonder if they have cheese steaks?" You sleep soundly through gunfire and ambulance sirens. You visit New York and are impressed by how clean it is. Its cleaner than philly...LOL You can't eat french fries without Cheese Whiz.So True You call sprinkles on top of your ice cream cone "jimmies". You don't think Wawa sounds funny. The best convience store..ever You snub a cheese steak that isn't on an Amoroso roll. Your parents, brothers, sisters, aunts and uncles all live on the same block. How bout the same hood. You know who Jim O'Brien is and how he died. You can't imagine lunch without a Tastycake. You're still not sure about Jerry Penacolli. A vacation at the Jersey shore (pronounced "Down the shoore") is better than going to an island (there's more stuff to do, plus you know everybody.) You know where to find the Rocky statue. Its at the spectrum You know that only tourists go to Geno's, Pat's and Jim's for authentic cheese steaks. You only go if you're **** and it's 3:00 a.m. You can make a cheese steak and you've never been taught DAMN, is cheesesteaks all were famous for You've never been to the Liberty Bell, or the only time you were there was on a class trip in third grade. hell i never been there, nor understand its significance. You know what and where "Boathouse Row" is beautiful kelly drive You will buy a pretzel from anyone, anywhere without even thinking of where it was - or where his hands have been. yeah, if u seen those stands at temple.... You can't imagine a breakfast without scrapple. You don't know what a sub is, but you think they are trying to describe an imitation HOAGIE. You aren't a bandwagon Sixers fan�you loved them when they sucked, and before they had A.I. You go to The Gallery or South Street in the summer time just to chill. So true...been on South two days ago! You have the pizza place on speed dial. Bellas 215-886-3833 You actually get these jokes and pass them on to other friends from Philadelphia.

You Know You're From Virginia When... Speed limits are just suggestionsso true You have at least two friends who have no idea what their relatives do...because its "top secret" government work thats me Most of your senior class went to Mason, JMU, Tech, VCU or UVA. /For HBCUs, it's Va Union, Va. State, Norfolk State, and Hampton. When people ask where you're from, you tell them DC because its easier to explain When i stayed in northern va i did this-less confusion You've never told someone you're from Virginia without putting "northern," "central," or "southern" in front of it (See above.) It's not actually tailgating unless your bumper is touching the car in front of you. You know yellow light means at least 5 more cars can get through. (Yeah, man...at least. Probably also happens everywhere else.) A red light means 2 more can. /Uh, huh! You actually know what the black boxes at stoplights are for. Despite the fact that Virginia fought for the south in the Civil War, you are not, under any circumstances, a "southerner" damn right! You are amused by visiting relatives who are actually excited to see Washington, DC You took a field trip to Williamsburg as a kid/ Who didn't go to Williamsburg for that boring **** Jamestown trip? You are amazed when you go out of town and the people at McDonalds speak English You or someone in your family has a Smart Tag An inch of snow and you miss 3 days of school/ :lol: This always happens every year! All the potholes just add a little excitement to your driving experience Crown Victoria = undercover cop Subway is a fast food place. The transportation system is known as Metro, and only Metro. They just tore down the old farm house across the street and put 12 new McMansions in its place For the cost of your house, you could own a small town in Iowa if this aint the truth...the prices of the houses up here are crazy! If you stay on the same road long enough, it will eventually have three new names./ All the time! You have to dial the area code to call your neighbo thats northern va for ya....smh "Vacation" means spending a day at King's Dominion or Busch Gardens. Yep! Most people in Richmond don't even think it's a vacation anymore. "Going to the River" means any stream with water. You have never been served tea without the waitress asking "sweet or unsweetened?" Yep, yep! Your favorite past time is telling West Virginia jokes. Anyone who can't trace his or her ancestry back to at least four generations in Virginia is an outsider. "Going to the beach" means anywhere from Ocean City to Virginia Beach to Myrtle Beach.
